Turtle Beach Stealth Pro Headset Review – Another Premium Contender

Turtle Beach's latest is also its best

Turtle Beach has never been seen as the most premium audio brand, but that’s definitely set to change with the release of the Stealth Pro. With many of the same features of the likes of the SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless, the Stealth Pro is above and beyond anything that the company has produced to date.

When it comes to the design of the headset, the company has absolutely opted for something sleek that doesn’t look like a gaming headset, and I think it has accomplished that for the most part. It’s definitely on the larger side when compared to some other premium gaming headsets on the market, probably to the point that I can’t see many wearing it out of the house, but it’s still a nice looking headset.

When it comes to comfort though, it’s a 10/10 for me. I wore this for half of a day (with glasses I might add) at one time and came away with no discomfort or the headaches that some headsets can cause. Turtle Beach has been calling out its “glasses-friendly” cushioning for some time now and it’s definitely in place here. Similarly, the headset’s soft-touch foam materials both on the cups and bands provide a lot of comfort.

Just like the SteelSeries flagship headset, the Stealth Pro employs a dual battery system. You easily swap the battery in and out under one of the headset side plates, and place the other in the hub to ensure that it stays charged at all times, each providing 12 hours of battery.

This is well below the Arctis Nova Pro Wireless at 18-22 hours per battery, but when you’ve always got one on charge, I’m not sure it’s that big of an issue. I still think this is a must-have for any serious gamer as it means you’ll never be without battery power.


Active noise cancelling is also included in the Stealth Pro Wireless headset, and it does a really great job. I think it’s a mixture of the active noise cancelling and also the thickness of the cups that combined to do a great job of cancelling out noise. It’s not as good as non-gaming headsets such as the Sony XM5s (and Sony’s InZone headset as well), but it still does a great job of cutting out a lot of noise, especially when games are blasting through the headset.

The same can be said for the Bluetooth functionality, which is absolutely seamless. The headset lets you listen to both your gaming console or PC (connected via the hub) and connect to a Bluetooth device separately to take calls or listen to music whilst you game.

The controls on the Turtle Beach Stealth Pro aren’t as extensive as what’s available on some other headsets, and they’re a little bit tricky to use, with you having to really pick and choose between what’s available at your fingerprints.

That’s made up for by the fact that there’s an app that you can use on your smart phone (or Mac/PC) to easily change between listening modes, turn noise cancelling on/off and even customise the buttons/wheel that are on the headset itself. It really makes a big difference.

When it comes to sound quality, it’s pretty respectable with 50mm drivers inside the Stealth Pro Wireless. There’s a good amount of bass, and the audio is clear and crisp. Turtle Beach’s well-known Superhuman tech is here as well, so for those that play Call Of Duty and other twitch shooters, might find that to be a necessary feature above other brands.

There’s two different microphones included with the headset. There’s in-built noise-cancelling microphones and also a noise-cancelling boom microphone, which isn’t the best gaming microphone that I’ve used but absolutely serviceable. I really appreciate that Turtle Beach has figured out a way to include an optional removable boom microphone. I will mention though that this port is covered by a little plastic cover that I’m almost certain will get lost as it’s not detached.

Just like other premium headsets, buying the PlayStation version of this headset means that you’ll only be able to use it with the PS5/PS4/Mac/PC/Switch whilst the Xbox version will allow you to use it with all consoles. Connection is made using a transmitter that charges the battery and other devices as well. It’s not the prettiest piece of tech I’ve ever seen and definitely lacks a lot of the functionality found in SteelSeries’ DAC but you’re paying extra for that.

It’s worth mentioning that you can only connect to one console/PC at a time, and there’s no surround sound on PC as well, so if you’re a PC gamer, this might not be the best option for you depending on both of those things.

All-in-all, the Turtle Beach Stealth Pro is absolutely Turtle Beach’s best headset to date. It probably sits somewhere in between the Sony INZONE H7 headset at $349 and the super high-end SteelSeries Arctis Nova Pro Wireless which is a better PC gaming option at $750. If you’re wanting something that feels high-end, and pairs well with your consoles, this is definitely a great option.
