What customers say about "Key Specs"
Turtle Beach Stealth 500X Wireless Gaming Headset
  • Comfy ear cushions and a lightweight headband allow for comfortable long gaming sessions.
  • They are very comfortable even when using for many hours and sound great.
  • Great headphones and good value with good service.
  • They are great I love the little app you can get to change the sound to suit specific games etc.
  • The headband and ear cup has snapped - the same thing happened on my previous XP500s plus the pair before that.
Turtle Beach Elite 800X Premium Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Decent quality noise cancellation. Recommend.
  • Noise cancelling is pretty good, there's a ton of sound adjustment features like superhuman hearing but I don't really use them.
  • It has all the required features, noise cancellation, surround sound, various modes.
  • Noise cancelling works very well as i cant hear my wife shouting for me when I'm gaming much to her annoyance.
  • The plates are loose. Noise cancelling could not remove it. It just vibrates to your inner ear.

  • Great quality sound with wide variety of presents selectable from touch sensitive ear cups. Deep bass and good volume, very comfortable.

What customers say about "Features"
Turtle Beach Stealth 500X Wireless Gaming Headset
  • The voice-chat optimises its volume depending on in-game volume. A very handy feature.
  • The head set also comes with a monitor so you can hear your own voice - another feature I don't know how I played without.
  • The best feature for me though is that it's completely wireless to achieve this you plug in a receiver into your console via usb and optical audio.
  • I've tried the movie and game modes in particular where I have 7.1 sources and you really can hear every detail.
  • The headset is very good in itself but the wireless feature was done cheaply.
Turtle Beach Elite 800X Premium Wireless Surround Sound Gaming Headset
  • Completely wireless (no wire connecting to your controller) meaning you are no longer tethered to your controller, one of the redeaming features.
  • Can connect to another device via Bluetooth while still receiving sound from Xbox.
  • Perfect. Has a 3.5mm jack port so you can use them if you have no battery.
  • Has a micro usb so you can charge them away from the dock. I really like it.
  • Awesome. They have a mobile and windows app so you can control and change settings.
