A Closer Look
The new Stealth 600 Gen 2 headset is the latest in a long line of great headsets from Turtle Beach.
This particular model is for the PS4 (and hopefully the PS5) and is wireless which means no catching wires when you are deeply engrossed in your game.
Charging up the headset is simple – just use the USB-C cable that is included in the box. When it’s fully charged you get around 15 hours of battery life, so that’s going to do you for most average gaming sessions!
Setting up the headset to use is very simple – just plug in the USB transmitter into your PS4 and then sync the headset to the PS4 via the transmitter. And that’s it – all very quick and easy.
The headset is very comfortable to wear even for extended periods of time. They are glasses friendly so if you are a glassed wearer then this headset makes it a lot easier and doesn’t press on your glasses when you are wearing it like other headsets.
The sound quality on the headset is excellent – you can really hear the tiniest of audio details in a game, and it really makes you feel that you are part of whatever game you are playing. Turtle Beach refer to the feature as Superhuman Hearing, and it works very well.
There are also 4 audio presets that you can choose to use – Bass Boost, Signature Sound, Treble Boost, and Vocal Boost. They are easy to select and make a difference depending on what game you are playing.
The mic provides very clear sound and doesn’t get in the way – and you just flip it up to mute which is quick and easy.
Sony has indicated that PS4 headsets will work on PS5. Turtle Beach anticipates the Stealth 600 Gen 2 will be compatible with PS5 and will confirm once testing is complete – but this sounds positive if you are getting a PS5.
The headset also works on the Nintendo Switch so you can use it on multiple consoles to save you from having to have multiple headsets!
The Stealth 600 Gen 2 Headset for PS4 from Turtle Beach is available now priced around £89.99.
