With 2 twelve year old boys and an almost 14 year old boy, it’s no surprise I have some gamers in my house. Between school, chores and extracurriculars my boys don’t have as much video game time as they’d like, but they definitely have their interest piqued with our Xbox One. One thing my kids have never had is a good headset for their gaming, which has become more important to my oldest because he likes to play games with his friends from his old school (old town). They’re pretty stoked that they finally have improved gaming with the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Headset. Here’s what we have to say about it:
The new Stealth 600 headset for Xbox has usb dongle free connectivity, which is probably my favorite feature because I hate cords! The Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 600 is among the first truly wireless gaming headsets for Xbox, and it’s as easy to connect to the system as your wireless controllers.
There are headsets out there that cost hundreds of dollars so I was also excited that the Stealth 600 rings in at $99.99. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are some upcoming Black Friday deals either. This headset doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, but you really get good bang for your buck and it would make a great gift for someone looking to up their game.
Get up to 15 hours of battery life. We haven’t put this many hours into it yet and we’re still going strong. The headset comes with a USB cable for charging too. This headset is said to really enhance the gaming experience for the following brand new Xbox games: Call of Duty: WWII, & Star Wars Battlefront II. My kids have Battlefront II on their Christmas wishlist!
The boys tell me this headset is super comfortable, which is nice for gamers who play for hours on end. We’re not there, but it’s still nice to have the comfort. There is foam and mesh padding on the top of the headband, and on the earpieces. The microphone is unobtrusive as well, and looks pretty slick when it’s in it’s upright position, which also happens to mute it (another feature I like, so the kids’ friends don’t hear me yelling at the boys to get chores done before play).
While there is no surround sound with the Stealth 600, you can give the bass an extra boost to the music. Chat and game sounds can be controlled separately so you can choose which you prefer to have louder. The sound appears to be pretty crisp and clear, without having to spend a ton of money to get there. My twins, especially, like to feel like they are IN the game and the headset helps them feel just that!
All-in-all my boys are stoked to have a “real” gaming headset and they’re happy with the comfort and sound. The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Headset would make a nice gift this holiday season, without breaking the bank!
