The Turtle Beach Stealth 400 can be picked up from most major highstreet and online gaming retailers for around £79.99, a pretty good price for a wireless headset with this specification. The headset comes backed by a 1 year warranty.
Turtle Beach are one of the biggest names in the gaming peripheral business. They’ve got a wide range of gaming headsets that span from the affordable to the crazy expensive; something for everyone. The Stealth 400 isn’t cheap at £79.99, but given that it comes equipped with wireless technology, mobile support and support for more than one console, it is rather competitive.
The build quality is very good and the whole unit feels robust; it should survive more than a few knocks and bumps without any issue. The ear cup and headband padding foam is a little tough at first, but it will wear in after extended use and this kind of foam typically lasts longer too, at least from my personal experience. The Stealth 400 is also lightweight, which is impressive considering that this is a wireless headset, so there’s a few extra electronics and a battery tucked away in there that you would expect to add excess weight.
Sound quality is pretty good, but far from the best in its class. The thing that sets this headset apart is that it’s one of the best sounding multi-format and wireless headsets. If you want all those feature with even better sound, then you’re going to have to pay more for it. The Stealth 400 is worthy of our gamers choice award, because it’s a great gaming headset and little else in my opinion. If you want to be really blown away, then invest the extra £20 into the Turtle Beach PX4 Wireless headset (our review).
