Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review- Design and Functionality

This part of our Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review focuses on the third iteration of the Stealth 600. It is a stylish headset weighing 301g, making it heavier than its predecessor, the Stealth 600 Gen 2. Despite the increase in weight, it has extra onboard functionality and a longer battery life.

The primary material used for the body of the Stealth 600 is hard plastic to keep it flexible. This feature makes the headset ideal for long gaming hours. Plus, it has a sturdy metal headband that adds to its durability. It also has a firm but comfortable clamp pressure.

The Stealth 600 is a multiplatform headset that connects via 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth 5.2. This headset is the PS5 version but also works with PS4, Xbox, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.

Comfortable Earcups

When we tested the headset for this Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review, we noticed its shape resembled its predecessor. The earcups have a compact D-shape design rising to a point at the front of the headset. 

What we loved about the earcups is they can swivel by 180 degrees. You can rest them flat on your neck, a handy feature when travelling or commuting. 

Conveniently, the cushioning is also glasses-friendly, so you can comfortably wear your hair down and keep your accessories on. We loved this headset instantly when we tested it for this Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review. It did not cause discomfort even after long hours of use.

Control Buttons

While inspecting the product for this Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review, we noticed the location of its control buttons. You will find everything on the left earcup behind the flip-to-mute microphone.

The controls on the left earcup include the volume wheel for audio and mic, power switch, Bluetooth button, and mode button. The latter is for cycling between audio presets to customise your listening experience.

Aside from pairing, the Bluetooth button also works for answering and ending phone calls.

Some buttons have multiple functions. An example is the power button that can work as a switch for activating the SuperHuman Hearing technology. However, you must change your settings via the Swarm II software.

  • Frequency Response: 20Hz – 20kHz

Hands-on with the Turtle Beach Stealth 600

Swarm II Software

The Swarm II is the companion app of the Stealth 600 and other Turtle Beach headsets. It allows tweaking and customising the settings of the Stealth 600 to optimise your audio.

The app has settings for adjusting the microphone sensitivity, changing audio presets, and activating SuperHuman Hearing. You can also adjust the levels of the latter based on your preferences.

The Swarm II smoothly ran when we navigated the app while testing the product for this Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review. 

This software has four standard EQ profiles. They balance higher and lower frequencies or emphasise one of them. You can also create audio presets with the 10-band EQ and save these on the app. Plus, you can reassign the physical controls of the headset and set shortcuts to activate your custom presets.

2.4 GHz Wireless and Bluetooth Connectivity

When we started our product tests for this Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review, we first connected via 2.4GHz wireless. Our devices immediately recognised the headset after plugging in the receiver. Also, the QuickSwitch button responded immediately, allowing you to switch to Bluetooth conveniently.

We had no problems with the wireless connectivity of this headset, whether we used 2.4GHz or Bluetooth. We did not experience latency issues since it was quick and stable throughout our tests.

Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Audio Quality

The Stealth 600 headset series from Turtle Beach is popular with gamers for comfort, extensive connectivity, and battery life. What we loved about this third iteration is the improved features, including its longer battery life and better audio quality.

The Stealth 600 did not have many changes on paper. However, its audio quality in our tests for this Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review showed its enhancements. Its 50mm Nanoclear drivers delivered a broader soundstage while providing adequate balance to the low, mid, and high tones. 

Although its precision did not match what high-end headsets for eSports deliver, the Stealth 600 boosted various sound elements. With Superhuman Hearing, vital audio cues like footsteps were more audible, placing us at an advantage in FPS titles.

We noticed the echoic soundscape produced when we activated Superhuman Hearing. The technology was not ideal for other game genres and listening to music, but it worked best for competitive shooters. Despite this echoic profile, we had no complaints since presets are available for music and other games.

The Stealth 600 also outputs 3D audio like other stereo headsets with Sony Tempest. This audio engine delivers high-quality audio, especially in video games.

The signature sound was flat and lacked punch at lower volumes. However, it offers the best chance of hearing effects as artists and producers intend.

The overall audio quality of the Stealth 600 was impressive. It is ideal for gaming since it combines balanced frequencies and adequate detail.

Microphone Performance

The unidirectional mic of the Stealth 600 has a fixed position and delivers satisfying volume levels and clear voice quality. The microphone was impressive on the previous Stealth 600 models. We appreciate Turtle Beach for enhancing it with cross-platform AI noise-reduction technology to eliminate background noise further.

We made some test recordings for our Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Review and immediately noticed its clarity. In-game chats were also intelligible, and we did not experience any issues.

When activating the AI Noise Reduction feature, we noticed the increased clarity of our voices. It efficiently reduced the noise in our surroundings and offered better experiences in voice chats.

We also liked how the microphone immediately mutes when flipped and hides well like retractable microphones. 

With its high-quality sound, plug-and-play connectivity, and numerous controls and settings, we enjoyed our gaming experience with this headset. It delivered everything we wanted in a gaming headset, making it ideal for gamers.


The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 proves to be a versatile and robust choice for gamers seeking a balance of comfort, quality, and functionality.

The Stealth 600 brings significant improvements, including a longer battery life and enhanced audio performance, making it a noteworthy upgrade from its predecessors.

Its durable build, combined with the flexible D-shaped earcups, ensures comfort even during marathon gaming sessions.

The Stealth 600 stands out with its seamless 2.4GHz wireless and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, catering to a wide range of devices from consoles to PCs and mobile devices.

The Swarm II companion app further elevates the experience by allowing extensive customisation of audio settings and microphone sensitivity, giving you full control over your gaming audio environment.

With its balanced sound profile, featuring 50mm Nanoclear drivers, the Stealth 600 delivers clear and immersive audio that enhances both in-game experiences and music playback. The inclusion of the SuperHuman Hearing feature provides a competitive edge in FPS games, making crucial audio cues more prominent.

The unidirectional microphone with AI noise reduction technology ensures clear and intelligible voice communication, adding to the headset’s appeal for multiplayer gaming.

Overall, the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is a solid choice for gamers looking for a high-quality, feature-rich headset that performs well across various platforms.
