Turtle Beach has released the Stealth series of gaming headsets, which offer an eyeglasses-friendly design, wireless connectivity, and virtual surround sound. In the article below, we will compare two models from the Stealth series to help you choose, which are Turtle Beach Stealth 600 vs 700. Of course, there is a price gap between the two models. The more affordable Stealth 600 is very attractive due to the longer battery life. However, Stealth 700 does come with several great features.
The first difference between Turtle Beach Stealth 600 and Turtle Beach Stealth 700 is their device compatibility. Both models are mainly designed for Xbox One. They connect to the gaming platform via Xbox Wireless. Each of the two headsets can also be connected to a PC or PS4 using a USB cable.

But Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is not compatible with mobile devices. You can’t use it on your smartphone or tablet. On the other hand, Turtle Beach Stealth 700 also comes with built-in Bluetooth which allows the unit to connect to a mobile device. You can also do music control and answer calls directly from the headset. So, if you want your gaming headset to be able to connect to your smartphone or tablet, you should choose Stealth 700.
Active Noise Cancellation
Both of these two models come with over-the-ear ear cups, which can provide passive noise cancellation. The ear cups can completely cover your ears and reduce environmental noise. However, if your environment is particularly noisy, the ear cups may not be enough. If this is the case, you may need the active noise cancellation feature.
Turtle Beach Stealth 600 does not have the active noise cancellation. Turtle Beach Stealth 700 has. This feature actively monitors the environment noise and filters them out. It is very useful when you want to concentrate and don’t want to be disturbed at all.
For sure, both Turtle Beach Stealth 600 and Turtle Beach Stealth 700 are very comfortable. This is especially true for people with eyeglasses, who often encounter discomfort and pain from tight-fitting headsets. Both of these two models feature the SpecsFit Glasses Relief System, which nicely contours the frame of the eyeglasses so that it does not create pressure points.
They have very good sound quality. Both models are armed with 50 mm drivers which deliver strong, powerful bass and rich, detailed vocals. They deliver virtual surround sound using the Windows Sonic Surround Sound. They have several audio presets that are tailored for specific needs. The Superhuman Hearing mode is especially useful in games that involve audio cues, as it enhances the audibility of fine sound effects.
Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is rated to have a longer battery life. It can last for up to 15 hours per charge. On the other hand, Turtle Beach Stealth 700 is only rated to have 10 hours battery life per charge.
If you don’t need the mobile connectivity or active noise cancellation, you may want to choose Turtle Beach Stealth 600, which has a better battery life. However, if you think that you can benefit from the mobile connectivity or active noise cancellation, you should choose Turtle Beach Stealth 700. Both models have very good sound quality.
