Turtle Beach Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max review

Two minute review

The Stealth 700 Gen 2 released by Turtle Beach last year was an impressive wireless headset, but there was room for improvement. The sound quality was not always as accurate as it could have been. While it offered Bluetooth to connect to PCs and other devices, the headset is intended for use with Xbox consoles via Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless technology.

The new Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max casts its net wider, as the ‘Max’ bit stands for ‘maximum compatibility’. Bluetooth is still available, but the Max headset now includes a new wireless USB adapter to provide a faster, lag-free alternative to Bluetooth for PC, Mac, Playstation 4 and PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch. Turtle Beach has improved the headset battery life, doubling it to 40 hours for this model. Elsewhere, the Stealth 700 Gen 2 Max’s design is unchanged, with the same 50mm neodymium drivers as its predecessor housed in rather large – but comfortable – earcups.
