Review: Turtle Beach Stealth 300 (Xbox One, Switch)

The Turtle Beach Stealth 300 headset for the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch is an incredible piece of hardware. It’s low price tag makes it very economical, and the nicely constructed frame fits very comfortably. The battery life on the Stealth 300 is very long lasting, which is great and absolutely makes it worth owning.

Unlike its older brother, the Stealth 600 wireless headset, the 300 is wired. Sure, owning a wireless headset is nice because it provides you with better mobility and the freedom to play games without pesky cords, but the 300 is just as good – perhaps better than its predecessor in many regards. For instance, the wired model is quite versatile, as it happens to be compatible with any device that has a 35mm outlet. Although the headset markets the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, I often used the 300 on my iPad and iPhone with no trouble whatsoever.

Although it is to no detriment, the gear sort of threw me for a loop when I realized that is has a power button. I mean, c’mon, what wired headset has a power button and needs to be charged? This finding is of course trivial, but I certainly thought it to be interesting. Another thing worth illuminating is the fact, as I mentioned previously, that the headset needs to be charged before use. And to it’s credit, you only have to charge it once and you can use it for an entire week. I’ve been using the Stealth 300 for an roughly twelve hours, listening to music and playing games on my Xbox One and Switch, and I still haven’t had to recharge. That’s awesome! It feels like the battery life will last forever.

What also makes the Stealth 300 headset such a treat, among other things of course, is the cheap price tag, which has been set at $79.99. For what the headset has to offer, that’s an awesome fare and really can’t be beaten.

When it comes to the sound department, the 300 is excellent. In fact, I think it would be fair to say that the sound quality is on par with the Stealth 600, which really says a lot to be honest. Like, you’re better off buying the 300 than the 600. If you want to learn more about the 600, click here. Bass enthusiasts should know that the 300 does an adequate job in providing a well done sound in that regard, but it doesn’t knock the section out of the park. On the brightside, however, you can practically pick up footsteps and reloading enemies from a mile away, which is great when you’re playing action-packed games like Fortnite and Gears of War 4.

I’ve had my fair share of issues, when it comes to comfortability, with previous Turtle Beach headsets. More specifically, issues involving my glasses and not reaching that point of headset nirvana. That said, I’m happy to report that the Stealth 300 fits very nicely and cooperates exceptionally well with my glasses. I was actually surprised to come to this realization, but i’m absolutely happy with the result and have chosen the 300 as my new favorite. I’m not like Goldilocks, this time around, trying to find the right fit. The 300 just fits perfectly – for me at least, and I have a huge dome, mind you!

If you’re on a budget and need a great headset to get your game on, then the Turtle Beach Stealth 300 wired headset is just the thing for you. The battery life is long lasting, and it feels like an eternity before you have to recharge. Although I found it to be a little funny for the headset to have a power button, the quality of sound is 100 percent excellent and it virtually works with any device with a 35mm outlet. It’s incredibly comfortable and absolutely worth investing.
