Initial launch has a few issues, but can be great!
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
I'll try to keep this brief. I bought these at launch and am on the very first firmware iteration. I love the look, I love the ear cushions, I love the app where you can control everything independently, and I absolutely love the sound... When it works properly. I find I have to turn it on at least twice in order to get it to connect to the dongle in Xbox mode. When it connects, the volume can be extremely inconsistent. Usually it's far too quiet, but a quick run through the app and moving a slider in the Custom EQ section brings the volume back to life. It's a minor inconvenience, but it has to be done every time I turn them on. I want to love these and give them 5 stars, the sound and customization with the EQ is amazing, but the volume issues, the connectivity issues, and the preset EQ's all being very low volume and hard to differentiate in comparison to the original 700 Gen 2 units have me unable to get past 3 stars. I'm sure these issues will be ironed out in a firmware update, I've been going back and forth with Turtle Beach support to help give as much information as I can, but until the inconveniences are ironed out I've found myself using a different wired set of headphones just because I don't feel like dealing with it. If I can edit this after they're updated, I'll happily do so.

Move Without Wires
Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max
I’ve always been hesitant about wireless gaming headsets. I had heard the ‘horror’ tales of staticky connections, other devices interrupting the signal of the wireless gaming headset, etc.
I had always gamed with a wired headset because it was reliable. I always preferred the Turtle Beach brand because they make solid headsets and have fantastic customer service. However, using a wired headset comes with the caveat of being tethered to your console or controller. I finally decided to take a chance on the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max.
And I love it!
I thought there was going to be a lengthy process of setting up the Stealth 700 Max. It’s ready right out of the box. I plugged the Bluetooth dongle into the front of my Xbox Series X, turned on the headset, and the two pieces paired without incident.
Now, I NEED to mention that to utilize the Surround Sound headset features on the Xbox you will need to go into the Xbox Series settings, go to General, then go to Volume and Audio Output, and select Windows Sonic for Headphones. It’s an amazing difference when you’re playing games like Halo Infinite or Warzone.
Can you use the Stealth 700 Gen 2 for the PlayStation 5? Yes, you can.
Setting the headset for my PS5 was basically just as easy. Make sure you switch the slider on the Bluetooth dongle from Xbox to USB. Then, you plug it into the PS5 and fire up your system. Make sure you access the sound setting of your PS5 system and manually select it to switch to the Turtle Beach headset. The only difference between the two console setups is that when you turn off the headset on the Xbox Series, the game sounds will immediately switch to your TV speakers or soundbar. But with the PS5, when you turn off the headset, you have to go into the PS5 Sound setting and select TV (HDMI) sound. It’s just an extra step that isn’t too much of a bother.
The Stealth 700 can also connect to your Nintendo Switch, and PC using the same Bluetooth dongle. Since I do not currently own a Nintendo Switch, I cannot attest to how it connects.
The sound that comes pouring through the headset is pure joy whether you are playing on Xbox, PS5, or PC. If you’re a gamer like myself who relies on the sounds of the game as a level of immersion then you are going to really enjoy what the Stealth 700 brings to the table! I was playing Dying Light 2 as I have done with my previous headset but this time, my headspace felt as if I was really in the middle of a group of zombies as rain danced on the outside of the building, I was in. Then I played Elden Ring which has a vast array of music, environmental, and combat sound effects. It’s an additional level of role-playing immersion.
And of course, for the competitive online players of Apex Legends, Warzone, and Fortnite, the Stealth 700 delivers its signature Superhuman Hearing option with the press of a button that amplifies the footsteps of other players.
With some headset microphones, there is sometimes an issue with where the microphone is placed from your mouth (the gateway). Whenever you find that perfect distance, you have to readjust the next time you put on the headset. The Stealth 700 has an easy access flip-down microphone that provides the perfect distance between the mic and your mouth. And you can adjust the mic so that it can swivel slightly closer to your mouth if you desire. I’ve streamed with this headset several times and it doesn’t pick up background noises or my breathing that might sound like a wind tunnel to my viewers. I also noticed that I am not seemingly popping my Ps when chatting to my audience because of the placement of the microphone. Need to mute it? Then just flip the mic up and you are muted.
I also need to mention that this Turtle Beach headset has the pass-through hearing so that you can hear yourself when talking which means you’re not ‘yelling’ into the mic feel the need to keep one earcup off just because you can’t hear yourself.
I game for several hours with gaming glasses and I found no discomfort with the Stealth 700 Gen 2. The earcups fit nicely around my ears without feeling heavy or pressurized around my head. The ear cushions remain cool and don’t make your ears feel hot over time. You can remove the ear cushions and adjust them accordingly for the type of glasses that you might wear during your game time. Not once did I feel any discomfort. The headset also unfolds, allowing you to rest it comfortably around your neck for the gaming breaks.
Customize Your Sound Experience:
With the Turtle Beach Audio Hub app, you can get into the depth of the kind of audio design you’re wanting. Chat Boost, Mappable Features, Mic Noise Gate, and many other options are offered within the app.
The Stealth 700 has an insane amount of battery life of 40 hours. You don’t need to worry about if you need to charge it since each time you power it up, there’s a voice informing you how much battery life there is. And when it is time to charge, the headset uses a USB-C plug, making for easy and fast charging.
This and That:
The only minor issues I would have to voice about the headset are that the buttons don’t stand out from one another when you’re accessing them. You’re going to have to commit them to memory to know which one is the Mode, Bluetooth, and Power. And as I have mentioned above, when using this headset with the PS5, you will need to manually disconnect the headset from the PS5 for the sound to return to the TV or soundbar. None of these issues are deal breakers by any means.

Great sound, but heavy gaming headsets
The last time I owned a pair of Turtle Beach headsets was about 9 years ago. They lasted about 5 years, so longevity was about what I expected. Those however were fairly light and comfortable. The Stealth 700 however are quite the opposite.
Out of the box you get the headset, a USB-A adapter, a USB-A to USB-C charging cable, and inserts.
Once you plug in the adapter and turn on the headset, you're all set. I checked to see if there was an update for these, and nope.
For my test, I maxed out everything I could on the headset.
From the moment I put the headset on, one thing was clear, these were not lightweight. They do a minimal job at blocking out some sound, but these do not block any outside/ambient sound.
The mic is tucked in on the left ear cup, and once they are brought down, you get a beep indicating that the mic is on.
When you turn on the headset, it lets you know what the battery status is. I thought that was a nice touch.
The build quality is okay. It's a mix of plastic and some aluminum. I would give the build quality about a 7/10.
I had the sound cut off once while watching a movie. I had to unplug the adapter and reinserted it, and it took care of that of that issue.
The sound itself is where this headset wins. I tested the game with my favorite FPS game, and I was able to hear every bullet, explosions going on around me, footsteps, it had me completely immersed in the action.
Using the mic to talk with my buddies during a match was a great. They could hear me clearly, and I, them.
I also used the headset to watch a full movie at night, and it gave me that nice surround sound.
My only gripe is that I found that I couldn't keep the headset on for a long period of time. I had to take them off about every 25-35 minutes. Maybe it's the combination of weight, and the material used for the ear cups.
It's not good that I couldn't keep them on for a long time to really test out the 40+ hours of battery capability. A game session usually goes for about an hour. It's sad that I couldn't keep the headset on for the whole hour.

The only gaming headset you need
The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen2 is a solid well built wireless gaming headset. I will say it is by far one of the best gaming headsets I have owned. They not only performed extremely well, they sounded good, they looked good and they were so comfortable. Again you can’t take away that build quality and the cobalt blue and bronze accent make them stand out. You will notice right away when pulling out the box some weight on them but don’t be alarmed. Once you put them on, those earcups feel so soft that they will make you forget about their weight. Some of the issues I have with some gaming headsets are that they are too big even after adjusting to the smallest setting. These were able to fit perfectly on the fly at the smallest setting..
This headset is made for Xbox XlS but it will work on PC, Playstation, Switch and mobile phones. I can confirm it works with the Xbox, PC, Android phones and Playstation. So in other words this is an all around headset. Included in the box is the wireless transmitter USB which you need to plug in to pair it. Paring is easy, if you use an Xbox on the transmitter it has a switch, set it to Xbox and hit the pairing button on the headset and that will do. For PC and PS5, put the switch on the transmitter to USB. You can use the Bluetooth connection to pair it with your phone and PC as well. On the left earcup you have the volume controls and buttons including the charging port. To mute the mic all you have to do is fip the mic upwards and that will do.
The memory foam used on the earcups are very very soft, they feel great and not only that, they will not make your ears hot, so you can use them for a long period of time. They also are glasses friendly meaning you can play using your glasses with no issues. When it comes to sound they won't disappoint. They sound streamly good with a nice balanced mids, highs and good deep bass. They also support the latest surround sound formats like Dolby Atmos and DTS X . The best part is that they are wireless with no cables in the way. Battery life is rated at 40+hrs per manufacturer. I have been using it for a few days and the battery is still almost at max.
Overall these are one of the best gaming headsets I have tried. They are not cheap but you pay for what you get, a premium quality headset which can be used across gaming platforms. Is like a 1 size fits all. They look good, sound good and feel great on your head, you can play with them for hours. In the box you get the headsets, USB wireless transmitter, USBC charging cable, and manuals.
