The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 Max Headset is an evolution of an already popular product that offers basic reliability and value for money. For our testing we used the black Xbox version of the headset, which not only looks impressive but also impresses with its functionality.
We have kindly been contacted for this review the master provided, but this does not affect our honest opinion.
Quality and design
The design of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Max in the simple black version is both robust and stylish. The headset is well built, but it could still do with some improvement in terms of flexibility. For users with larger heads, the headset may put a little pressure on the ears after long periods of wear, which is an important issue for ergonomics.
Sound quality is one of the strengths of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Max. A balanced mix of virtual surround sound and clear reproduction ensures an immersive gaming experience. While some would prefer stronger bass reproduction, most users are satisfied with the sound profile offered.
Battery life is impressive at over 48 hours and represents a significant improvement over the previous model This is especially convenient for users who prefer long gaming sessions or want to use the headset in a variety of ways
Setting options and adjustments
Compatibility with various platforms such as Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC and Nintendo Switch in dock mode makes the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Max particularly versatile. Easy connection via USB transmitter is user-friendly and makes switching between devices much easier. Pairing the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 Max with the Xbox Series X was seamless, and operating the console was intuitive and nice.
While the headset is generally comfortable, people with larger heads may feel pressure on their ears after prolonged wear. This is one aspect that should be considered when choosing a headset.
