Turtle Beach Launching Updated Gen 2 Versions of The Stealth 600, Stealth 700 Headsets

Turtle Beach is launching updated Gen 2 versions of their Stealth 600 and Stealth 700 headsets. Like the previous iteration, these will be available in console-specific designs (with design language and connection types paired specifically for Xbox or PlayStation systems). The Stealth 600 will also be available in a simple white version for a more neutral approach to gaming. Connection-wise, the PlayStation version connects via a specific USB wireless adapter; the Xbox version connects directly to console or PC via Microsoft's proprietary connection and wireless receiver kit.

The headsets see a redesigned mic and button layout; the mic now completely recedes into the outside of the ear cup, as if it were a perfect jigsaw fit. The controls, instead of being disperse, are now neatly lined up around the outer edge of the left ear cup, and the Micro-USB charging port is now a USB-C one. Sound hardware wise both headsets are identical; the Stealth 700 justifies a higher price-tag through the usage of an all-black design with plush, leather-like ear pads. it also offers the ability to connect to devices via Bluetooth in addition to the actual game source, so users can listen to more than just in-game audio while playing. The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 will cost $99.99 (the PlayStation version is already available, with the Xbox one being releases come September 20th. The Stealth 700 will be more expensive at $149.99 and will release for both platforms on September 20th. Each headset will be compatible with their respective current and next-gen systems.

Proprietary connections for a headset... I guess there really is a sucker born every minute.

If you're referring to the "Xbox version connects directly to console or PC via Microsoft's proprietary connection and wireless receiver kit", it's the same one that has been in place. Which has been in place for.. well, as long as the XBox One has been released. It's the same wireless connection they've always used. Nothing new here.
