The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 has been a long-time favorite for budget-friendly wireless audio on Xbox One, and with the recent Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launch, the company debuted its second generation. The Gen 2 revision improved almost every aspect of an already sturdy headset, with a lucrative discount now on Amazon two months after release.

The limited-time 20% saving makes this affordable headset for Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S even more attractive, ideal for those looking for many of the best features at a lower upfront cost. It covers all of the essentials, with robust construction and a long-life battery that holds up across extensive gaming sessions. And while that $100 starting price was already hard to fault, this $80 is the ideal chance to upgrade your cans.

While other premium headsets will outpace the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 in some categories, you'll struggle an alternative in this price bracket. It's especially ideal for those who aren't looking to spend hundreds on audio gear, even making for a great holiday gift. This likely matches the best price we'll see this Black Friday, too.

This model tops its predecessor with improved 50mm speakers and enhanced microphone quality, now with a handy flip-to-mute design. And while previously sturdy and comfortable, Turtle Beach switched up this design with reinforced construction, namely with changes to its hinges and headband.

But the standout inclusion is Xbox Wireless support, Microsoft's cable-free protocol for its console accessories. This headset uses the same connection as official Xbox controllers, with seamless pairing across Xbox consoles. When connected, you can individually tune game and chat volume with on-ear dials, with various audio presets to improve the soundscape. It also boasts 15-hour quoted battery life, which handles a few sessions for even avid gamers with odd recharges.

The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 is available in both black and white colorways, matching the tones seen across Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. While the sister Stealth 700 packs a few more features at $150, this saving delivers the fundamentals seen across many premium alternatives, but all at a low starting price.
