So off the bat the headset looks amazing, unboxing was a treat much like opening a Christmas present.
Yes, I was that excited to try on the Stealth 700.

Another thing that is super impressive is the Stealth 700s ability to connect directly to your console, much like the controller does. The process takes around 2 seconds. Once connected the headset becomes a breeze to use. Whenever the headset is powered on, it connects to the Xbox automatically and starts playing audio, nothing else needed.

There are many superlatives I wanted to use to describe the crazy level of comfort on the Stealth 700. Simply put: Its like wearing ******* butter!
Its a good thing these guys are wireless. On a few occasions I forgot I was wearing them, if they were wired, the controller would have hastily followed us in an attempt to either sever the wire or smash itself.
One of the Stealths key features to achieve this level of comfort is the “Glasses Friendly” earcups. I don’t know if some of you will agree, but gaming with glasses and a bulky headset has always been an issue.

I was fortunate enough to review Far Cry: New Dawn around the same time I had the headset. The game was such a joy to play with this headset. Crisp details coming from all around you. The headset also supports Windows Sonic Surround.

One of the marketed features is “SuperHuman Hearing” mode. This is activated by pressing the button next to the bluetooth button on the headset. It slightly amplifies the audio, making it a bit brighter with warmer bass.

Battery life is quite impressive too coming in at 10 hours. I can attest to this, often times worrying if I had charged it or not, this didn’t stop the headset, it just played on.

TL;DR:
Its an amazing headset with a really solid feel. Probably the most comfortable headset I’ve ever used


  • Pros:
    • Amazing clarity
    • Epic midrange with punchy bass
    • Solid build quality
    • Comfort, I cannot stress enough how comfortable they are

  • Cons:
    • Struggling to find one, if I had to nitpick, the price maybe on the higher end of the scale, but this is justified with all the features.
