Turtle Beach have been at the top of the gaming audio tree for as long as we care to remember, so it comes as no surprise to hear that they are looking to build on the market share they already have. They are doing this by creating a couple more lines in their brilliant Stealth 600 range, with the new Gen 2 MAX and Gen 2 USB headsets. And yep, the battery life on these is ridiculously good.
Adding flexibility across multiple platforms, Turtle Beach have today confirmed their new Stealth 600 Gen 2 Max and Stealth 600 GEN 2 USB gaming headsets, with gamers looking for some seriously battery power needing to look no further.
The newest entries to the brand’s best-selling Stealth 600 series wireless gaming headsets, utilising the latest latency-free, lossless wireless connectivity technology, the Stealth 600 Gen 2 MAX provides multiplatform capability to connect to even more gaming systems, working neatly with Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as PS5 and PS4, plus Nintendo Switch or PC. The Stealth 600 Gen 2 MAX also takes battery life to new heights with a whopping 48+ hours per charge (we think this is probably the Xbox headset that has the longest battery life) – and frankly, that’s a ridiculous number of hours.
Accompanying the MAX is the Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB which delivers an immersive wireless gaming audio experience with 24+ hours (yeah, only 24+ hours) of battery life. These upgrades complement the headset’s ability to deliver the powerful 3D spatial surround sound and unmatched comfort that’s made the Stealth 600 headsets best-selling products since their debut.
“We’ve redesigned our ultra-popular Stealth 600 Gen 2 wireless headsets so gamers can connect to more devices and play longer while keeping the powerful sound, crystal-clear chat, and plush comfort that has made these a best-seller,” said Juergen Stark, Chairman and CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “We’re always listening to feedback from our fans and the community, and today gamers are playing more games than ever before, and on multiple systems. With our new Stealth 600 Gen 2 MAX, gamers can easily switch between different platforms and use proprietary Turtle Beach features like our Superhuman Hearing® sound setting to stay alive longer and win more games.”
Launched in August 2020, Turtle Beach’s Stealth 600 Gen 2 has become the #1 best-selling headset series. We loved it, picking up on the brilliance of what it provides in our full review – although if we had to purchase one TB headset, the Stealth 700 Gen 2 would be it.
Now though it’s looking to get better, with the Stealth 600 Gen 2 MAX and Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB coming in a variety of colorways. The Stealth 600 Gen 2 MAX will be available in Black, Midnight Red, or Arctic Camo for a MSRP of £129.99, whilst the Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB will be available in Black or White and maintains the best-selling model’s £89.99 MSRP.

These will become available for pre-order in the U.S. on April 3rd 2022 and are planned to launch in May 2022.
