Additionally, the left ear cup houses a chat volume dial, a volume dial, an led light, a micro USB port for charging, a wireless pairing button, a mode button, and a microphone. So there’s indeed plenty to use, but I think the manufacturer could have separated them just a little. Now let’s talk about performance. The Stealth 700 comes with 50-millimetre speakers that are capable enough of delivering deep lows, crisp highs, and I’m sure you’ll be impressed with the overall depth and clarity of the audio you’ll hear.

What I also like about this unit is the high sensitivity mic, which does a really good job of capturing your voice as realistically as possible. And if you flip it up, the mic will mute. So as far as that goes, I don’t have any remarks. Last but not least, battery life has an approximate run time of 15 hours per charge. So when we combine all these things, plus the price you pay, I think that the Turtle Beach deserves our respect.
