Why get a Turtle Beach Stealth 600 headset?

Before going over what the pros and cons between different retailers are, it's important to highlight what makes the Stealth 600 worth purchasing in the first place. The Turtle Beach Stealth 600 is one of the best mid-range wireless headsets available for Xbox One users due to its solid sound quality, Windows Sonic compatibility, excellent battery life, and clear microphone quality.

It has a frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz, which is respectable, albeit not top-notch. This less-than-stellar performance, though, is pleasantly offset by the fact the headset can work with Windows Sonic on Xbox One, which gives users the ability to toggle immersive spatial sound. In addition, the Stealth 600 has a 15-hour battery life on full charge, which is a fantastic amount of time. Lastly, the microphone on the Stealth 600 is great, offering a performance that can go toe-to-toe with more expensive headsets.

Should you buy from Amazon or Turtle Beach?

At the end of the day, both Amazon and Turtle Beach are great retailers to get the Stealth 600 from since they both offer free shipping. Neither of them are really better, so it mostly comes down to your personal needs and preferences. Amazon is the better retailer when it comes to shipping quickly because they have a large collection of warehouses spread out around the country, so there's likely one close to or even in your state. This is especially true if you use Amazon Prime, since you can get free two-day shipping.

Turtle Beach, however, is the better option when it comes to payment options. Unlike Amazon, where you have to pay the flat $100, Turtle Beach allows you to break up your purchase into three interest-free monthly payments. This is a fantastic option if you need to avoid spending a large sum of money at once.
