But the company has rethought some design elements for a better experience. The adjustable headband now has a much wider spine on the inside, similar to the one you’ll find in the Recon 70. It adds extra durability, although the original never felt there was a risk of breaking. There’s also a small window that is cut out of the ribbon so you can see how much you’ve widened it in. later. The group feels a little tight, but not uncomfortable. I wore the Stealth 600 Gen 2 for several hours straight and never felt the need to take it off due to excess pressure or heat. The mesh fabric generally remained cool.
The headphones are now available in white, in addition to the black version. One of the reasons I liked Recon Spark was simply because it wasn’t black or red, two colors that seem to haunt the entire gaming accessory industry. Seeing more companies embrace lighter shades or usually white is a nice change. White is highlighted with medium gray in the pillow and the silver logo. I could probably leave this on my coffee table without feeling self-conscious the next time my parents visited me.
The biggest change in the design is with the microphone, which I didn’t even register right away, as it is folded into the ear cup in such a way that you can’t see it from the back at all. Older Turtle Beach headphones often had uncollectible microphones protruding from the side, but the Stealth 600 Gen 2 cup is designed so that the cup on the left ear has a small cutter in which the microphone can be inserted right. Even when I look directly at the handset, it still takes me a second to register the presence of the microphone. This is one aspect of the product that really fits stealth branding.
During gameplay, the audio is clear as always, with details such as steps that you can easily choose. However, larger moments like loud music or shooting can overwhelm you with touch input – I’ve found that I turn down the volume. Fall Guys it’s much weirder to wear headphones, as I can hear every little bouncing and pounding of my swarming watermelon, not to mention the sounds of everyone else falling at the same time. It’s quite chaotic and the Stealth 600 Gen 2 handles the audio wonderfully.
The most attractive thing about the Stetle 600 Gen 2 on Turtle Beach is actually the price. You get everything I described above – stellar sound quality, comfortable canvas ear pads, solid wireless rock connection – for only $ 100. Headphones on this product usually cost twice as much, but in the last few years we have seen more frequent price drops in the range below $ 100, ideal for casual gamers. The price puts it on par with many excellent SteelSeries headphones, and if you wait for the price to drop, it may even rival our longtime favorite, the Recon 70. You can pick up the PlayStation version of the handset that works with the PS4 (and PS5) starting at today, while the Xbox version will arrive next month, along with the Stealth 700 Gen 2, a premium Bluetooth headset. This model is only available in black and will cost $ 150.
