What’s up TR fans and welcome back for another headset review with Technology Reviews! When I started this blog a year ago, I started it with a review of my Scullcandy headphones, but since then, I didn’t publish any more headphone reviews. That changes today with this review of the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Xbox Gaming Headset! This is going to be one of the last reviews I’m going to publish for a while because I’m going to be bringing you a few other technology stories based on stuff that’s been announced recently and ones that might help us deal with circumstances of this year (I know, 2020 sucks), and I’m very excited to bring this all to you! However, this will be one of the only ones getting a video on YouTube, which I will get round to updating again soon!
So now, let’s get into this review!
The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is a wireless gaming headset for Xbox, which I’ve been using each time I’ve been gaming on Xbox this year. Rated “One of the best wireless headsets you can use on Xbox One,” by WIRED, it has full surround sound and superhuman hearing, which really impresses me as far as Audio goes. The one I have is for Xbox since that’s my preferred console platform from the accessibility point and compatible with PC, but there’s also ones you can get for the PlayStation and Nintendo Switch.
Xbox Wireless provides you with a best-in-class wireless gaming audio experience on Xbox One, by letting you connect your STEALTH 600 gaming headset directly to your console without an adapter, the same way you’d connect your xbox wireless controller. Xbox Wireless automatically configures the headset’s connection, so you just have to turn it on and start playing!
Glasses friendly with an all-day 15 hour battery, as someone who uses glasses depending on how much text is in a game and depending on where I’m playing, you won’t feel like they get in the way.
It also has a microphone.
When we get into the box, you’ll see your literature, and the headset itself will be in the green packaging. I like how the packaging, itself, shows off the Xbox colours, and the Turtle Beach engraving, but other than that, they also seemed easy to get out.
So what do I think about the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 overall? The audio on it is good, and the battery lets you enjoy hours of wireless audio fun. Most of my gaming at the minute is single player _ so I can’t comment much on how well the microphone works _ but I might be able to comment more on it in future if I get more into multiplayer. The only thing I’d like to say from the Accessibility view point _ like I said in my Skullcandy review _ is about the idea of voice activated headphones / headsets. There’s been times when I’ve turned the headset on that the volume is completely down, and voice activation would just allow me _ as someone who can only use her head _ to turn them up without having to ask someone to turn the volume up for me. But other than that, I love them.
