What customers say about "Key Specs"
Turtle Beach Stealth 500P Wireless DTS Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • They are extremely comfortable, easy adjustable and make a snug fit around my head.
  • The microphone on the headset is detachable if all you want to use is the surround sound aspect or you can have chat only or both.
  • I enjoy that microphone is easily detachable. Very comfortable for me.
  • Fantastic - takes gaming to whole new level. Easy to adjust for perfect fit and detachable mic is excellent.
  • They are a little small even with the headband fully extended.
Turtle Beach Stealth 520 Wireless DTS 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • The headphones are fairly comfortable, headband is easy adjustable.
  • The headphones are fabulous. The spatial awareness is great. The detachable microphone is great feature for listening in public.
  • I really enjoy is that the microphone is detachable, which means if I'm not playing and just feel like listening to some music I can use them for that as well.
  • It is a little bit tight for my liking, you know you are wearing it after a few hours, it feels like.... your head is being squashed.
  • There is no noise isolation for both ways. It can be irritating when listening to music on public transport to have people able to hear everything.

What customers say about "Features"
Turtle Beach Stealth 500P Wireless DTS Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • The sound quality is superb in stereo mode though. I suggest also enabling the bass boost preset when using stereo mode, as it helps the low frequencies punch through.
  • The headset also provides voice feedback with a female voice confirming the mode you have selected for the headset.
  • The surround sound is good, the presets do a great job of differentiating sound spectrum and it does an all around job in the audio aspect of things
  • The only con is battery life being 7 hours tops. Not the advertised 15 hours.
  • My biggest issue is that the volume controls are on the back of the headset, and it's very easy to knock them if you lean back.
Turtle Beach Stealth 520 Wireless DTS 7.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • The battery life is excellent, after first charge got through about 9 hours of film watching and they still show no signs of needing charge.
  • Good surround sound from the headphones that let me hear where enemies are coming from when I'm playing.
  • Good wireless range and battery life is adequate. I highly recommend to all gamers here.
  • The volume rockers are incredibly accurate and the build quality is outstanding,
  • After wearing it for gaming 4+ hours it gets very uncomfortable.
