It’s been more than eight years since my wife and I first became parents, and despite writing about gaming often, it wasn’t until this year that I finally got to start spending some real time blowing up some pixels again. I upgraded from the Xbox 360 (which I still have) to the Xbox One S, promptly jumping right back into the kind of military-themed action I used to enjoy. After all, when it comes to fall, that means Call of Duty Season is open, but when I bought my system it came with Battlefield 1. Thing is, it’s difficult to blow stuff up good when there’s two little girls and a wife sleeping upstairs, and that means headphones. For the task at hand, I’ve got the Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Surround Sound Gaming Headset.
My first truly wireless gaming headset, Stealth 700 connects effortlessly to the Xbox One family of consoles – just like the controllers do. No USB dongle or any additional gadgets – just pure wireless (it works with some Windows 10 PCs as well). The Turtle Beach mantra is “Hear Everything, Defeat Everyone,” and that can be the case here. The “Superhuman Hearing” feature balances things out, making online multiplayer particularly exhilarating. All the little details can be heard, which means it can be easier to hear people creeping up on you.
Active Noise Cancelling technology helps eliminate background distractions, while the price point (under $150!) brings premium sound into a a much more affordable range when compared to previous headphone releases. The surround sound also makes movies sound great, and since you can also use these with your phone or tablet via Bluetooth, that opens up the possibilities for even more portable entertainment options with BIG sound.
The Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Surround Sound Gaming Headset is available now from Best Buy. It makes a great holiday gift, or the perfect accessory for any Xbox One gamer any time of the year. Rock Father-approved!
