Often mooted as the best XBox wireless headset in town. This Grade A refurbished set comes with a 12 month warranty. £2.20 Topcashback potential https://www.topcashback.co.uk/stock-must-go…
Please can you provide a link to the lifetime sub? Thanks
Got around to opening these and testing them today. Slightly ripped box didn't bode well, but inside I would say that the headset is new and unused, with the packing seals in place on the swivels etc. The set charged, paired and worked straight away. All in all, very happy.
I got the 9X to replace the Turtlebeach Stealth 700 Gen 2. I mainly use them on PC with the Xbox Wireless Adapter and I find them great for both work calls and gaming. My only gripe was the earcup pads, found the material was garbage and itched my head and also my ears sat on the driver which I couldn't bare so I replaced the earcups with a set of Brainwavz that I found on Amazon for a decent price and happy as a pig in (poo)
I Would love a pair of proper headphones (I don't need the mic) but I don't know where to start lol. The market is so big..I would probably spend £150 on the headphones then get something for £50 or so down the road to give then more power
I have the Arctis 7 Wireless which I got for £100 brand new, they are good compared to some others but also pretty crap for what they cost. Considering you can get a top of the range active noise cancelling headset for £160 (Bose QuietComfort 35II), I think these are overpriced.

Much appreciated! Will look into it and get one as without it the sound is so weak!
No problem dude. Having read the reviews it's not the best headphone amp in the world but it's going to be leaps and bounds better than the built in interface on your PS4 controller or alike. I have a Fiio E11 and it's old but it still works admirably. Creative also do a product for gaming on consoles called the G3. It's a bit more expensive though and not portable (requires USB power). Have a look around I say. Look at independent reviews on Reddit and forums etc if you have the time. It's a bit of a rabbit hole and you might find yourself tempted to spend far more than you bargained for, but for me it's often been worth it in the end. As I said in my review above in this thread I actually rate these headphones pretty well, if they are accompanied by a decent power source. They do have the potential to shine.
Thanks for taking the time to reply and give me this info! I will check em out. I see they're availebl on Amazon for £25
Get a small headphone amp like a Fiio A1, sure it's slightly more expensive than even the headphones themselves, but trust me it'll change your experience of these (and all your other headphones) entirely. It's portable too so you can use it on the go. It will make these go from sounding like £10 junk to £60+ decent audio.
Well, I am impressed. Well done OP, if I could give you heat now, I would. I've just forked out £700 on an amp/dac set up with a pair of DT1990s - I also own DT770s among others. Perhaps you can call me a bit of an audiophile, but I know there are audiophiles and then there are audiophiles so take this with a pinch of salt. I thought, you can't go wrong at £13.99 and wasn't expecting much for this. In fact, I was expecting really poor quality. My other gaming headset is the Sennheiser GSP300 (£85 on Amazon). Honestly, I prefer the sound on these MPOWs*. All testing was done using a Topping E30/L30 dac/amp set up to set a standard across the headphones. Edit: I have now tried the microphone, see the review at the end of this post for that. The sound is actually really quite good once you've got some power of a good interface to make it punch. I think the deep earcups help propel the bass and the overall sound signature, while certainly not flat, is warmer than the hollow sounding Sennheiser pair. The lower mids are lacking depth and detail, but at this price point everything you want in the slight "loudness curve" is there without it being drastically overdone. The treble is ever so slightly raised which I suppose is handy to allow voice communication in games to protrude, and the bass is honestly a little better than average. It's not as punchy/tight as the Sennheiser pair but it's warm and not excessively loose either. In terms of "drivability", I know others in this thread have said it's a bit on the quiet side, but I think it totally depends what you are driving it with. If you have a decent sound card these do come alive. They seem to be relatively quieter than other headphones are lower volumes, but as you increase the power they seem to respond even better than other headphones - so they are capable of getting very loud - and into distortion if you keep going beyond sensibilities. The build quality is actually not terrible, either. I think the metal frame is provides good strengthening - and I'm actually a fan of the braided cable. However, two concerns: - The inner headband which seems to be secured by 2 very thin lengths of cable, and also houses the audio cable to go from one side to the other. It feels a bit on the flimsy side, and I suspect the metal cables will wear over time . - The microphone is flexible, but it feels cheap and like it would possibly wear it's plastic sheeting, allowing damage to the metal core/connection to the microphone itself. It's exposed - and there's no way to stow it, so I feel like it's one of the most damage prone areas if you don't take care of it. Other than that, I see in the photos it looks like it might light up? I tend to stay away from audio products which try and be something else - eg. speakers with lights/water features. A speaker/headphone has one purpose. I'd rather every last penny on R&D and manufacture be spent on the audio quality, and not waste time with fanciful lights, but in all honesty - the sound quality alone at this price point has blown me away. It's not a DT1990, but if you're listening casually or immersed in your game you won't hear much difference between this and say a DT770 or MX300 - providing you are supplying it with a good dac/power source. Utterly impressed for £13.99, this has got to be the bargain of the year. Edit: So, I've just tested the microphone on this. It's good. Much more sensitive than the Sennheiser, and a bit of a warmer sound to it too. Out of the box, I think it's a really good microphone that doesn't need much adjustment. It does pick up a lot of distortion from S' and P's but I think if you can find a sleeve/boom to slide over it, alternatively have it adjusted so you aren't speaking directly into it, you will be much better off. I also tested the sound of these on just a normal soundcard built in on my motherboard. I can see where others are coming from regarding it being a little quieter than they would prefer. The sound is really lacking, and "dead" compared to how it was "alive" on my amp/dac set up. I highly recommend a decent soundcard - either internal or external, it doesn't matter. But something with a bit of power, really turn these from being just "meh" to actually really impressive.

Anyone have any good equaliser settings for these, or found any good ones on the internet? Struggling to get rid of the muddy soundstage from tinkering with it myself. Also spacial audio is a bit hit and miss. Hard to tell when a player is below or above
Mine was delayed, but was delivered next day.
Also - there’s an issue with mic monitoring (which was one of the primary features I wanted). Microsoft are aware and are going to patch it. Other than that, so far they are a pretty good headset.
this comes with 6 months dolby atmos as well in case some didn't know like me. Just install the app on xbox with headset on and it should show.
I just got an email from Amazon saying they can't obtain the item. Not sure why they accepted the pre order when they seemingly have no stock.

Turtle Beach Stealth 600 Gen 2 Wireless Xbox Headset £74.99 (click & collect) @ Argos£74.99Argos Deals
Lowest I can see them. Other versions also available.
I bought the 700 gen 2 & these are missing a lot of features compared to my working turtle beach 800x which has a lot of things like, you could tune the Microphone to what room you are in, change to movies mode or music, game or normal mode, iv even tried the steel series 9x & even tho ear cups are comfortable, that's just the same more money for less setting options. Some of these new headsets are just garbage compared to the old headsets of 5 years ago.
Razer kaira pro is meant to be good, im getting the standard as I’ve not got any need for the Bluetooth. Currently 149.99 direct from them but if you wait for the newsletter discount which is £10 you’ll get it for 139.99
Hi I'm looking for a Xbox headset that has Bluetooth as well as a wireless connection preferably using a dongle but not the Xbox wireless as too many connections problems. Any suggestions please?
What one did you go for?
I bought this headset and returned it within a week... the volume just isn’t loud enough unless in the super human hearing mode and I’m not willing to lose all the quality in sound to be able to hear footsteps in games! Just warning any would be purchasers

Good price for wireless headset for Xbox also compatible with Xbox series X !
Also oddly it seems ps4 ones don't work with xbox but xbox ones work on ps4 lol
It says surround sound but this review says it hasn't got it. https://www.gamesradar.com/turtle-beach-stealth-300-headset-review-great-range-of-features-for-a-reasonable-price/ Bit strange
I wouldn't recommend this headset personally.. although I've always had Turtle Beach, and my XO One lasted about 3-4 years, I had this for 3 months and had to get a new one under warranty, and it went again after 6 months last night.. hoping they cover it against the warranty but I doubt it, the headphones still work but no sound is coming through the microphone ;(
That's why I will repeat myself forever that there's nothing better than SounblasterX G6+Beyerdynamic DT 770 or 990+mic of your choice.
After the horrors I’ve had with wireless headsets I wouldn’t recommend any spent nearly £450 on two of the supposed best wireless headsets and neither lived up to the promise

No problem, I was wearing them for about 4 hours last night no headache, I wear glasses and the ear cup is comfortable with glasses on for me anyways. According to hyperx they're 288 grams without the mic and 298 with but in the real world example I'd say they weigh about as much as an xbox one controller holding both together
Can I ask how long do you wear them for and do you, get any headache? And if you can tell me how much it weighs? Also thank you for your information and the time you have taken out of your life to answer my questions. (ONE LOVE)
Very comfortable headset. I'm no expert when it comes to sound quality but can't really fault the sound, I used the dolby atmos app on the xbox as well and music sounds great on spotify youtube etc. Only played overwatch and the witcher so far using them but again really good sound while gaming. I don't really use the mic much so can't really comment on the quality but all in all the build quality, comfort and sound are excellent and not having the wire is great, they are a bit more expensive than I'd usually pay to be honest but I think I will be using them enough to justify the cost (y)
Let me know how it plays out. Please
Thanks been looking for a wireless headset for a while for the xbox and the reviews of this all look good so went for it (y)

MICROSOFT Xbox One Stereo Headset £29.99 Currys£29.99£37.8521% offCurrys Deals
Make the most of Xbox One gaming and communicate with ease with the Microsoft Xbox One Stereo Headset .
I've mentioned it before, but found these were very comfortable, in fact the only headset ive been able to wear without pain. however the slight background static / hum / hiss just drove me nuts in quite sections its so distracting. Tried 3 exchanges the first time. 2 exchanges the second attempt several months ago, about a year after the first. Yet no-one else seems to notice it :(.
These lasted me approx a year but the cheap plastic broke apart at the ear muffs. Still use the adapter which is very useful
I got these on a ebay deal last year for 22.50 and with a adaptor, no adapter this time so not worth it, these I find very heavy. But yes I agree they don't last long my first pair lasted me less than 6 months, but I got my cash back and scammed them in keeping the adapter, then got from argos my second pair on a 25 deal last black Friday I think, I ment to sell them on as was only after the adaptors
Agree with the above. Went through 3 sets in a year with failed mic connection, luckily had argos extended guarantee. Just pay a bit more for something else.
Headphone Jack connection breaks so easy on these not worth taking the risk

Sure, it only owes you half an hour at that price in my books. But I think you'll probably find a better driving game even at that money. Just mho.
It's 3 quid. It's worth that.
Just completed it. I'd spend your money elsewhere
You can't go back in time, but if you have been "buying " Games with Gold over the years you may have this, it was given away back in June 2016 I think.. Check you "ready to install" games before buying this, you may already own it..

:( gone up to 16.99. Was just considering trying a pair, as I find on the ear ones uncomfortable now.
Nice one bought. Good shout
Bought three xo from this seller in "returned as new" condition. Box was damaged but didn't mind, however I bought this model because of an angle jack. I was surprise when I opened the box and found out the jack was replaced.
Bargain Em, good spot, sure to go hot at that price! Also not just for console gamer's, should imagine that this is super comfy with those big ear cups and foam runners, for PC voip, skype, chitchat on duo etc etc as well, after all, they designed it to be worn for 23 hours a day by streamers and the like! ;)
Haven't seen this headset at this price for a while, but could be wrong. Argos did this first I assume, and Amazon have priced matched. Argos link (free C&C): argos.co.uk/product/85253…
No problem dude. I know there's several variations of this headset that look almost identical, and deals come and go. Even those these a gamer ones as you say, they have solid sound quality (flirt) (flirt)
Thanks, not into "gamer" ones, so only asked, as wanted a big set for a gift, but not the silly £90+ ones, that look the same as your find, so ordered them, thanks (y)
I have literally no idea, there's probably no difference just that's an old deal maybe?
No, I was referring to the headphones not a case, just wondered why this one is more that is all (y)
If you're referring to the actual headset, there's a carrying case on Currys' website for £14.99 for this specific headset (confused)
