Turtle Beach Stealth 700 headset arrives with Xbox Wireless tech

Gaming accessory maker Turtle Beach only launched its Stealth 600 Xbox One headset in late August, and now it's launching its big brother, the Stealth 700. Like the Stealth 600, the Stealth 700 is also one of the first headsets to support the Xbox Wireless protocol. It also adds a few extra bells and whistles over its sibling.

With Xbox Wireless tech, the Stealth 700 uses the same protocol as your Xbox One controller to connect to your console. That eliminates the need for a dongle or base station to wirelessly connect the headset to your Xbox One, and initial setup should be pretty simple.

As for sound, the Stealth 700 supports Windows Sonic Surround with the same 50mm speakers as the Stealth 600. There's also a flip-up microphone, independent game and chat audio control and up to 10 hours of gameplay on a single charge. In addition, the Stealth 700 adds some extras over the Stealth 600, including Bluetooth connectivity with app-based settings, active noise cancellation, and dynamic chat boost.

You'll have to shell out a little more dough for the extras packed into the 700, however. The Stealth 700 comes in at a retail price of $149.95 and is available now. That's a $50 premium over the Stealth 600, which is also currently available for $99.95.
