Check – Turtle Seaside Stealth 600 Gen 2 Potential – Autonomy at the price of fortification


Less sober two years after the release of Stealth video gaming headsets 600 and 600 sober second generation, Turtle Seaside offers a sale since this Monday their Maximum versions (Please note that the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Greatest extent is on pre-order and is scheduled for release on May 8 4985). To accompany these Utmost variations, the Californian audio specialist also produces the Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB, an improved autonomy edition of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 at the same price of 99,99 . Today, it is the check of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Potential that we propose to you. Cuando le Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB still targets the popular market with headsets offering wireless connectivity put less than 99 , the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Maximum sees kid price climb 147,139 . This price positioning challenges us since it directly fulfills the Greatest extent in competition with higher-end helmets, including the 700 Gen 2 of 2020 (150,99 recommended price). We were therefore curious to see the added value of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Utmost which would justify this positioning .

A sober desire to correct faults

In October 2020, we were seduced by a Stealth task 600 Gen 2 less sober 91 . However, two major flaws emerge from our review and from most consumer reviews: an autonomy of less than 24 hours and headset compatibility only dedicated to Microsoft’s ecosystem. Turtle Seaside has cost its community since the Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB increases the autonomy more than 48 hours (according to the data manufacturer), while the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Potential that we are testing is the supercharged answer was able to resolve the two aforementioned faults. Sober effect, this model announces an autonomy of more than 15 hours and basically comes with the wireless adapter that makes the Maximum compatible with the Personal computer, Nintendo Change and all PlayStation game consoles.

Regarding the product packaging, Turtle Seaside continues to use its classic format inherited from previous models. Only the signs Greatest extent ct of Gen 2 and the trademarks of a battery of more than 48 hours and the wireless adapter, in a respectful green, mark the differentiation. Unpacking the box reveals the headphones, a USB-C cable for recharging (still short), the see included in a cardboard case and the famous wireless adapter. The Stealth 600 Gen 2 Utmost ze is available in 3 colors: Night time Red, Arctic Camouflage and Black (model of our check). These three shades, so different, will undoubtedly meet the tastes of most players.

You don’t switch a winning team (when you stay in the same category)

If the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Potential is called again like the previous model except for the addition of the Maximum, this home is no coincidence. Whether it’s style, manufacturing materials or sound quality, the two models are unfortunately identical. What could be considered a small advantage for some, represents to our eyes a small disappointment. What advantage? Yes, vehicle put less than 99, the quality Overall Stealth 600 Gen 2 format is remarkable. 140 on the other hand, it competes with the target of first high-end video gaming headsets around the 149 or other high-end headsets range in advertising; the style and materials of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Greatest extent therefore make little stain in comparison.

The 600 Gen 2 left and its Utmost right edition

For those who have never been able to approach this model, we will quickly recall its main characteristics in these areas. The Stealth 600 Gen 2 (Potential) sony ericsson mainly consists of a plastic pad frame, this Regarding the black model that we are testing in, attenuating the device and caricatural aspect of the video gaming headset. The aprendí props designer logo is found on each earpiece on the outside and inside, in a silver color that contrasts nicely with the sobriety of the black. The joints of the helmet are firm, silent and strong. The headband is adjustable, the ear cups can tilt vertically and horizontally. It is therefore possible to put the boy helmet around the neck in a comfortable way.

For comfort, fairly thick padding covered with sober imitation leather accompanies the sober arch at the top of the skull . The ear cushions also have a bottom foam covered with imitation leather but also, above, another foam covered this time with a mesh fabric which is found when you get in touch with the ears. Sober by the oblong shape of the pads and their metabolic rate in two thicknesses, the sony ericsson data compresion factors are found below and behind the ears, sober so as not to bother wearers sober glasses. Also, thanks to its different joints, the headsets adapt easily to the various morphologies of the players. After long hours of play in a row, the headset hardly hurts and only sometimes requires a slight adjustment of the ear cups. In addition, the heating is well controlled and does not become unpleasant.

An identical sound experience but which still holds a path

Regarding the sound experience of the Stealth 600 Gen 2 Greatest extent, our reservations are situated in the sober positioning change tariff no longer hold. While the sound characteristics of this new model are identical to kid an, they are also equivalent to the superior Stealth model 455 Gen 2.

We thus find the two high- speakers sober 15 millimeter for a child powerful and detailed. To customize the latter, the Stealth 600 allows you to select 4 different equalization settings, 3 of which are target amplifications: bass only, treble and bass at the same time, voice. The final setting, named Iconic Boy by Turtle Seaside, is balanced most understated of them all. It’s still our favorite setting with a warm and engaging sound in most games, movies and music checked.

For those who are very sensitive to excellent spatialization in their favorite games, Turtle Seaside offers their proprietary Superhuman Listening to system, which can be activated by simply clicking the power button on the headphones. This technology, which is learned superimposed on the current equalization setting, improves the understanding of isolated noises such as the loading of a weapon, the footsteps of an approaching enemy or the distant arrival of a vehicle. Specially adjusted for competitive games, this setting is interesting and can make the difference in extremely stressful occasions where the stealthy approach is paramount.

Finally, the tilting microphone fits perfectly sober raised in the understated frame of the left atrium. Lowering or raising it activates or deactivates kid operation. Our gaming partners have been able to appreciate the quality of the tiny during online conversations and celebrations. According to their feedback, our voice was rather clear and not interfered with by the noises around. Moreover, the proprietary Sound Center software, which can be installed on a Computer, allows you to update the firmware of the headphones but also to configure the default levels of the minimum feedback and the general quantity.

A useful wireless adapter to disappoint Phil

To get the most out of this created for Xbox headset on our Xbox system, we still have to install the wireless adapter on a simple USB slot. From then on, turning on the headset, the connection and recognition of the latter by the ze gaming console are done very quickly. When using our, we regularly switched on the helmet before the system, by reflex. Even in this case, the recognition of the sony ericsson headset is done almost from the first seconds of the launch of the gaming console system. As part of our sober review, we were able to try out the headset on a PlayStation 4 and el PC. Also, the headset and the learning platform synchronize perfectly and quickly. Only change in the adapter, we have to put the switch on USB and no longer on Xbox.

El famous adapter

If maximum Stealth compatibility 600 Gen 2 Ultimately with other hardware seems attractive, an option found by Turtle Seaside quickly marks its limits. Simple effect, a connection of the helmet via Bluetooth technology remains difficult, so much so that it is obligatory to move with his adapter to be able to take advantage of its various gaming devices. We touch here the primary default sober this alternative; it sony ericsson shows frustrating and unsuitable if we wish to use only this headset put all our bbs. Especially if we are gamers who switch gaming devices daily. Finally, the main advantage of the wireless adapter remains that of not making the headset obsolete if we leave the Xbox ecosystem.

Impressive autonomy

Beyond simple multi-platform compatibility of Stealth 600 Gen 2 Potential, the other major novelty brought by this edition is a new battery with a more sober capacity 15 hours of autonomy, i.e. double the sober model 2020 and the increase of the new Stealth 600 Gen 2 USB. During our test, we approached the 50 time. As terrible as we have the temperature ranges to enjoy our games serenely before the first beeps, indicating that we must think about recharging the headphones, intervene in our ears.

Finally, the third flaw (a minor one) that we denounced at the time of the Stealth check 600 Gen 2, concerning perfectible ergonomics at the level of the buttons and wheels of the helmet, remains the only one not to have been corrected by this Maximum edition. However, with the temperature, we got used to their tight openings around the left ear cup. From bottom to top, we find the USB-C interface could recharge the battery and connect the headphones to the Personal computer (put the Sound Center software), the power button is also used to activate the Superhuman Listening to technology which, the setting button allows you to choose one of the 4 predefined equalizer settings which, a wheel could change the sound levels between the game and the singing conversation then a last wheel could adjust the general sound volume.
