But the company has rethought some elements of the design for a better experience. The adjustable headband now has a much wider spike on the inside, similar to the one you’ll find in the Recon 70. It adds extra durability, though the original was never really at risk. broken. There’s also a small window cut out of the strap so you can see how many inches you’ve extended it – a handy move if you often find yourself shrinking your headphones for travel or for someone else. borrow, just have trouble fixing it later. The band feels a bit tight, but not uncomfortable. I have worn the Stealth 600 Gen 2 for several hours straight and never felt the need to take it off due to excessive pressure or temperature. Mesh fabrics are generally still cool.
The headset is also now available in white, in addition to a black version. One of the reasons I like the Recon Spark is simply because it’s neither black nor red, the two colors seem to haunt the entire gaming accessories industry. Seeing more companies use brighter tones or plain white is a good change. White is accented with medium gray in the cushion and the logo in silver. I can leave it on my coffee table without feeling narcissistic the next time my parents visit.
The biggest change in the design is that with the microphone, I didn’t even sign up immediately as it folds into the headset in such a way that you can’t see it from behind. Older Turtle Beach headphones usually have a non-removable microphone protruding from the side, but the Stealth 600 Gen 2’s mug has been designed so that the left ear cup has a small cutout so the mic can be attached. Even when I was looking directly at the headphones, it took me a second to register the presence of the microphone. It’s one aspect of the product that really makes the brand “invisible”.
While playing the game, the sound is still clearer than ever, with details like footsteps easily recognizable. However, louder moments like loud music or gunshots can overwhelm you with sensory input – I find myself turning down the volume. The boys fall I wore headphones very strangely because I could hear every pea bouncing and falling, not to mention the sound of others falling at the same time. It’s quite chaotic, and the Stealth 600 Gen 2 handles the sound admirably.
The most attractive thing about Turtle Beach’s Stealth 600 Gen 2 is actually the price. You get everything I’ve described above – excellent sound quality, comfortable fabric ear cushions, solid wireless connectivity – for just $ 100. These good-quality headphones typically cost twice as much, but over the past few years we’ve seen prices drop more often into the sub-$ 100 range, perfect for casual gamers. Its price is on par with many of the excellent SteelSeries headphones and if you wait for the price to drop, it might even be on par with our longtime favorite, the Recon 70. You can get the PlayStation version of the headset, works with PS4 (and PS5) starting today, while the Xbox version will arrive next month alongside the Stealth 700 Gen 2, a more premium headset with Bluetooth. That model is available in black only and will cost $ 150.
