Stealth 600 Gen 2 Wireless Gaming Headset for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S
Excellent sound but fiddly controls & poor comfort
- Probably one of the better SOUNDING gaming headsets I’ve heard in a LONG time and easily stacks up against the top contenders I’ve auditioned and kept/retired from HyperX, Corsair, Razer, Logitech, Sennhesier, and Steelseries (I’ve gone through at least 15 different wired and wireless gaming headsets over the past 6 years)…provides both outstanding quality game audio as well as being incredibly musical; bass is tight, punchy and authoritative, vocals are clear and lifelike, and highs are sparkly without being harsh or fatiguing—overall this is an incredibly capable and fun-sounding headset, especially for the price
- 4 different sound profile modes are available via quick tap of the side “MODE” button—an audible set of tones (1 beep through 4 beeps) indicates whether you’re using the signature sound profile (in my opinion, the best sounding of the bunch), bass boost, v-shaped bass and treble boost, or vocal enhancement (for movies or dialogue-heavy games)
- Superhuman hearing mode (available through a quick toggle of the power button) is no joke—takes the already engaging sound-field and amplifies critical and subtle background and directional sound cues and makes them incredibly easy to pick out from the active soundtrack
- Fully integrated controls and boom mic makes for a very clean and streamlined look—no protruding wires, switches, dongles or hardware when everything is stowed away
- Mute the boom mic just by lifting it up part way from the fully deployed position—lets you momentarily mute without having to fully stow away the mic into the earcup (as an added bonus, activation/deactivation tones accompany mic mute/mic deployment so you can tell if you’ve got a hot mic or not)
- Boom mic position is slightly adjustable towards/away from your mouth by a small pivot joint at the earcup—mic audio quality is excellent as reported by my teammates and sidetone adjustment is possible using the Turtle Beach Hub app
- Audio status tone volume is adjustable (again, via the Turtle Beach Hub) and the tones are actually audible without having to don the headset itself…kind of a nice feature that lets you dial in the settings (Superhuman hearing, sound profile, mic status, etc.) you want without having to do it blindly by touch after the headset is already on your ears
- Independent, rubber-finished, knurled chat and game volume rotary controls feel reassuringly solid and allow you to dial in the perfect blend of team-speak and game volume
- Numbered and graduated headband markers are visible through the headband cutouts and make it easy to re-size after loaning your cans to a friend or stowing them for travel
- Unique over-the-ear pad design better matches natural shape of the ear; passive isolation is actually quite aggressive yet the fabric mesh covered foam pads didn’t get my ears hot even after several hours of gaming
- Despite the all-plastic construction, these actually feel pretty darned solid without any tell-tale plastic creak (at least in my set) indicating thin or cheap construction—time will tell, of course, just how well they hold up
- Pairing on the Xbox and on my Win 10 PC with the Xbox dongle was effortless—press the enroll button on the console/dongle and the join button on the headset and they connected inside of 3 seconds—no skips, disconnects or dropouts in more than a week of testing
- Battery life seems to track as advertised—the first time I had to recharge the unit was more than a week after unpacking it at 3-4 hours of gameplay a day
- Fully compatible with Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS Sound Unbound surround sound apps on my Windows PC; switching between surround schemes was instantaneous and trouble-free (MUCH better than my recent experiences with a Corsair wireless set which simply refused to register as surround-capable until at least 2-3 minutes after powering on)
- Included USB-A to USB-C charging cable means I don’t have to go hunting for a separate cable to keep the headset juiced up, nor do I need to find an open ‘they’re-still-not-quite-everywhere-yet’ USB-C port or charger
- I SO desperately wanted to love this headset because the sound quality really is quite exceptional, but the clamping force is more than just substantial--it bordered on painful, at least for me (my head circumference is about 60 cm). This inward pressure on the ears was exacerbated by the fact that the otherwise noteworthy build quality made the headphones feel unyielding and stiff, and the earcups don’t have a great deal of freedom for up/down tilt to relieve that inward pressure—they required constant forward/backward readjustment and tweaking of side-to-side pivot just to keep them on my head without resorting to a set of external speakers out of frustration or outright pain
- Although the underside of the headband features a quite gushy foam pad (in fact, it feels softer than the foam used in the ear pads), the high inwards clamping force bent the headband up and away from the curvature of my head and thus still resulted in a significant hotspot at the very top of my head
- The unique ear-pad shape is somewhat lost on the user by the fact that this is not a circumaural set of headphones—the earpad openings are actually pretty small and therefore the pads rest on most portions of the ear rather than encircle and enclose them…if you have a slightly larger head like mine, or you just don’t care for earpads resting ON your ears, be advised that the pads may end up producing some discomfort over prolonged gaming sessions
- I let my wife try out the headset to see if my experiences were unique to me and my physiology. Her head is smaller than mine and indeed she did not experience the same kind of clamping force discomfort that I did—in fact, she noted that the earpads seemed glasses-friendly while trying them out, but she did notice that the foam in the earpads felt a bit stiff and “hard”…she wondered why they weren’t made of the same soft and pillowy material that was used for the headband cushion
- Superhuman hearing mode is great for getting a leg up on some competitive FPS action but can result in distortion or over-emphasis of musical cues or other high frequency elements of the game’s soundtrack that can even become harsh over time—definitely not a set-it-and-forget-it control if you vary your gameplay across many different genres of games
- The audio cues serving as status indicators (soundfield mode, mic status, Superhuman hearing, etc.) are serviceable but vocal prompts would have been welcome—waiting to hear if I was on the 3-beep or 4-beep soundfield setting, and then having to remember which was which took more time and effort than it really needed to
- The clean, streamlined controls and button/dial layout actually proved kind of troublesome for me in practice. The power button is completely flush with the outer shell of the earpad, and it’s EXACTLY the same shape and size as the only SLIGHTLY raised MODE button that happens to sit just millimeters away from it. Once on my head, it was virtually impossible to find the power button to engage/disengage Superhuman Hearing or hit that vs the MODE button on the first try. I was similarly fumbling around for the volume dial and invariably adjusted chat volume by mistake. Some distinction in control button shapes (maybe one dial and one slider; one button and one switch, etc.) or placement of the controls around the earcup or even moving a control or two to the other side of the headphone (so the controls aren’t bunched SO tight and close together) would have made it a bit easier to work with in the dark and by touch alone
- The four soundfield presets are a welcome touch and it’s great that you don’t need an app to activate any of them on the go, but given that you need the Turtle Beach Hub app to update firmware, adjust the status tone volume and sidetone volume, why not add a custom EQ option to the mix as well? The “Signature” sound mode was very fun and quite engaging, but the other boost modes just didn’t do much for me—I would have loved the option to personalize the sound profile even further. Obviously, YMMV…
- Although the earcup pivot range is extensive, the headphones still do not fold perfectly flat making packing in a bag or backpack a little more troublesome than it should be
If you’ve got the right sized/shaped head (read: maybe a little on the smallish side?) to accommodate these headphones, the out-of-the-box audio quality and performance you’ll get in return from the Stealth 600 Gen 2 is truly top notch. Usability takes a bit of a hit in my book due to the small, indistinct, and somewhat cramped placement of the controls, but once you have the soundfield and volume settings dialed in to your liking, maybe you won’t need to adjust the controls that often anyway??? Given my personal experience with these headphones, I would recommend them based on sound quality and performance/value per dollar, but still caution ANYONE against a blind buy due to the comfort and fit issues that ultimately proved to be a deal-breaker for me.
Comfortable, light and soft ear cups prevent sweaty ears. Easiest wireless connection to the Xbox that I have seen, just like connecting a controller. However, this means it is limited to Xbox or PC’s with an Xbox adapter.
Sound quality is pretty good with some choices of sound modes. This includes Signature Sound, Bass Boost, Bass & Treble Boost and Vocal Boost. It also has a Super human hearing mode which essentially cranks up the high end so you can hear footsteps and clicks better. However, I felt it really distorted the rest of the sounds so much that it affected the rest of the game. Windows Sonic, and though not advertised, Dolby Atmos, work great in providing the positional sounds in supported material.
Battery life claims 15 hours and has been pretty long lasting as I have been through several gaming sessions without needing a recharge. The only real downside I have for this headset is that it is completely plastic. I’ve had other headsets that my son used and it never failed that the plastic bands ended up breaking. Provided you take care of handling it should last, but knowing how my son is, I don’t think he will be using these.
I would recommend this to a friend

Works fine ! Easy to turn on and off for chat !
The problem is battery the box said 15 hours but it don’t last 15 hours probably not even 6-7 hours because we been using this for a month and seems like the battery die fast we use everyday for 6 hours or so and on weekends we use this all day till midnight. Yes we are gamer (@_@) I wish the charger cord was long so I can plug in to Xbox and charge while I using it I have to use extension cord to charge and use it at same time !
Thank you for your feedback! However, please allow our Support Team to assist you with your Stealth 600. We’re always happy to help, and we can be reached right from the support section of the Turtle Beach website as needed.

Not for the big headed.
Owned for 5 months when reviewed.
Got these for $70. They work great but if you have a big head they will break. They already have broken on me once. Factory warranty still covered it despite me attempting a self repair.
Broke in less than a year ugh..
Do not buy, the flimsy plastic it's made of will break long before you receive any return on investment, also the mic way too sensitive, I could do absolutely nothing in the background without this picking it up.
This piece of overpriced trash broke on the adjustment rail; my crime? Putting on the headset, that's it, otherwise it sits in its own headset holder, I babied this. Not worth the $100 I paid.
So now I get the luxury of having a non adjustable headset that now hangs off my ear..
Oh my how thoroughly unenjoyable!
Pics for reference..
We’re sorry to hear about the experience you've had with your headset! Our Support Team would want to hear about this as our headsets are each sold with a one-year manufacturer's warranty, and we have a dedicated Support Team available to provide assistance as needed. That team can lend a helping hand with replacement service in a situation like this, and also look in to the other inconveniences you described. That team can be reached right from the support section of the Turtle Beach website.
Thank you and best regards!

Good Gaming Headset
This is a review for Turtle Beach 600 Gaming headphones
Stealth 600 Gen 2 Xbox Headset
USB-C Charge Cable
Quick start guide
It is all plastic but that not necessarily a bad thing. i think it is well constructed and there are no creaks. So i can attest to the fact that it is well made.
The boom mic cannot be removed and when you pull it up , it mutes.
There is a power button. The Headset includes a chat volume and headset volume controls. There is an LED indicator to indicate whether it is on. Charging is through a type c port.
It has a mode button to toggle between modes -
Bass + Treble Boost
Connect button will connect the headset to a Xbox One or a computer which has a Xbox logo.
There is a new software update available, so make sure to hook this headset to a windows or a MAC PC. Make sure to install Turtle Beach audio hub to download and install the latest firmware.
Make sure to charge the headphone to 100% before you. The LED turns off to indicate that it is fully charged,.
Once Charged, turn on the headset by long pressing the POWER button. Once turned on, the LED will be lit. Now you can pair with the Xbox by pressing the engage button and pressing and holding the connect button on the headset.
Once connect, i played a few games, mainly shooter games. The Bass Boost mode does enhance the bass pretty well. The sound signature is warm. Overall there is a good amount of Boom and good highs and good spatial representation of sound which is important in gaming.
Superhuman mode is a little hard, so i tend to keep it off. This can be turned ON or OFF by pushing the power button.
Battery life is claimed to be 15 hours and it did come close to the claimed battery life.
Overall i think at this price is it a good value and if you are an avid gamer, this is a must have.
A:AnswerThe 600 Gen 2 will feature a new battery that will have 15 hours of battery life.
It is also equipped with a new microphone boom that improves clarity and integrates in to the headset itself when turned in to the mute position.
The Gen 2 chassis is also new, with a strengthened headband and hinge design for added durability.
A:AnswerTwo headsets can be used on the same console, but both headsets will play the same game audio. Each player will need to log into Xbox LIVE chat separately. Each player will need his/her own Xbox controller.
Microsoft has disabled any kind of "local console chat", or chat between two headsets on the same console. To summarize:
- Both players can log into Xbox LIVE using their own individual gamertags, which will allow each player to communicate with others online.
- However, two players on the same console cannot communicate with one another.
