“With our Stealth 700 and 600 Gen 2 wireless gaming headsets, we’ve delivered a stunning level of high-quality audio, comfort, and features that take these already best-selling products to an even higher level,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach. “We fully expect the Gen 2s to continue as top-performing products in the market, as the Stealth 700 Gen 2 provides the ultimate premium wireless gaming audio experience for $149.95, and the Stealth 600 Gen2 looks and sounds amazing and delivers everything gamers could ask for at $99.95.
Personally, I adored the Turtle Beach Stealth 600s when they released two years ago. I praised the heck out of it in my review back in 2018. It just had everything a gamer would want at a very affordable price.
However, there were several improvements that could’ve been made and it appears as if Turtle Beach recognized that as well is responding accordingly with the Gen 2s. The Enhanced Durability and new Mic Design have me intrigued, but I’m absolutely enamored by the Aerofit Cooling Gel Cushions on the Stealth 700 Gen 2s. Every enhancement and upgrade looks extremely enticing.
Players will be able to get their hands on the PS4/PS5 version of the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 wireless gaming headset on August 16, 2020. The Xbox version will release on September 20, 2020. Joining the Xbox version on that September 20 date will be both versions of the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2.
