TURTLE Beach are staying one step ahead by unveiling two-in-one headsets for Playstation and Xbox. The Stealth 700 Gen 2 and Stealth 600 Gen 2 are expected for release next month with each console receiving their own models. On top of that, they’ll also be readily compatible with Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X respectively. Sporting a sleeker look, available in both black and white, the 2nd Gen models are the successors to the Stealth 700 and Stealth 600 released in 2017. They also bring back the flip-to-mute mic found in the previous Stealth models but will now rest within the earcup itself.
“With our Stealth 700 and 600 Gen 2 wireless gaming headsets, we’ve delivered a stunning level of high-quality audio, comfort, and features that take these already best-selling products to an even higher level,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “The Gen 2s are designed to exceed gamers’ expectations, and we fully expect them to continue as top-performing products in the market. The Stealth 700 Gen 2 provides the ultimate premium wireless gaming audio experience, and the Stealth 600 Gen 2 looks and sounds amazing and delivers everything gamers could ask for.
“2020 continues to be a historic year for the gaming industry and the excitement continues as we head into spring with a variety of AAA game launches and next generation consoles right around the corner, which we believe will also lead to further success for our Stealth 700 and 600 series headsets.”
The Stealth 600 Gen 2 will retail at $169.95 with the Playstation version available September 4 and Xbox version launching September 25. The Stealth 700 Gen 2 will retail at $249.95 with plans to release later this year. Full details about both models can be found below.
Stealth 700 Gen 2
The all-new Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 features a host of updates including upgraded performance, comfort and styling. Game audio on the Stealth 700 Gen 2 has been tuned and refined to deliver even more detailed and precise sound, giving gamers an even better chance to hear everything and defeat everyone. A larger, high-sensitivity flip-to-mute mic enhances chat clarity and seamlessly conceals into the earcup when muted. New Aerofit™ cooling gel-infused memory foam ear cushions surround upgraded 50mm Nanoclear™ speakers, and a re-designed metal-reinforced headband provides long-lasting durability and comfort. Battery life has been upgraded significantly with a 20-hour lifespan. Gamers can also use Bluetooth® connectivity to connect to the all-new Turtle Beach Audio Hub app to easily customise their audio and program the headset’s remappable dial and button, as well as simultaneously listen to music or take mobile calls while gaming. Xbox fans can once again take advantage of Xbox Wireless technology which automatically connects the headset directly to the console, while wireless game and chat on PS4 and PS5 is handled through the included USB transmitter.
