If you know anything about gaming accessories, then you’ll know that Turtle Beach are right at the very top of the tree, pushing out numerous gaming headsets with a whole range of prices and features. Two of their very best selling options are that of the Stealth 700 and Stealth 600, so it makes utter sense to head into the next generation of gaming with some next gen headsets – the Stealth 700 Gen 2 and Stealth 600 Gen 2.
The next generation of Turtle Beach’s best selling wireless gaming headsets, the Steath 600 Gen 2 and Stealth 700 Gen 2 are the successors to the current versions, taking things to the next level with a refined feel, premium build and sleeker look. Throw in powerful game sound, clear chat that is controlled via a larger flip to mute mic and enough comfort for all-day use, and Turtle Beach seem to be on to something. Even more so when you take past TB history into account – we’ve previously been mighty impressed with the Stealth 300, the Atlas One and the Recon Spark; some of the top-rating gaming headset under $100.
Compatible with Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4 and PS5, when can you get your hands on these new devices? Well, sooner than you think actually, with a release schedule of the following in place…
• Stealth 600 Gen 2 – Available in black and white versions for PS4 and PS52 and will be released on Aug. 16, 2020
• Stealth 600 Gen 2 – Available in black and white versions for Xbox One and Xbox Series X will follow on Sept. 20, 2020
• Stealth 700 Gen 2 – Available in black for Xbox One and Xbox Series X. Also available in black for PS4 and PS5, and both will release on Sept. 20, 2020
“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 Gen 2 looks and sounds amazing and delivers everything gamers could ask for at $99.95.
“2020 continues to be a historic year for the gaming industry and the excitement continues as we head into the fall with a variety of AAA game launches and next generation consoles right around the corner, which we believe will also lead to further success for our Stealth 700 and 600 series headsets.”
