Hello everyone
I recently broke my Turtle Beach XO seven. I am looking for recommendations on a replacement set. I don't mind wired headedsets but would like to check out some wireless ones.
What do you guys use? Any recommendations are welcomed.
Been looking at the Turtle Beach Stealth 600 and the 700.

Thanks

I have the Stealth 500s. Fantastic it of kit. If the 6 and 700 series carry on the trend then I’d highly recommend them.

As a side question: I just ordered an Xbox one S, does anyone know if plugging the PlayStation Gold headset into the controller will work as a headset? Once I get it and download everything I’ll try it but figured someone might know before I try

Best buy has the Astro headsets on sale 30% off for Cyber Monday. Either the a50's for $225 or the a40s for $185 are great deals. If you are ok with cables I highly recommend the a40s, as the digital mixer is worth having, if the headset ever dies you upgrade and still take advantage of the mixer.

I've been using the RIGs by Plantronics for a while now and I really like them. Super light and good quality sound, many come with ATMOS subscription and I get good direction out of the ambient sounds.

I'm sure others have higher quality and better dimension to the sound, but for the price they are great, modular and did I say light.

Is there a certain price range you're trying to stay around? I have tested a crap ton of headphones from Steel Series, Astros, Corsair, HyperX. I by far love my A50's more than any other headset I've ever owned. But they come with a hefty price tag of $300 USD

I recently bought the TB Stealth 600 and they're great. Easy set up, no issues connecting and long battery life. I haven't played online with them yet so no feedback on how I sound to other players though.
