Stealth 600 Gen 2 PS - Headset Controls And Audio Features

The Stealth 600 Gen 2 PS headset comes with some unique headset controls and features.

On the back of the Left earcup, there are two volume dials. One is for Master volume, and the other is for variable Mic Monitor volume.

The Master volume dial will control the volume of both game and chat audio, while the Mic Monitor volume dial will adjust how volume of the headset's Mic Monitor feature, which allows you to hear yourself through the headset when you speak into the mic -- helping you to avoid inadvertently shouting at other players.

The Mic Monitor will be active whenever the headset is powered on and the mic is unmuted, even if the headset and transmitter are not paired. If the Mic Monitor is up all the way, you may hear ambient noise through the headset; if this happens, simply lower the Mic Monitor volume using that lower headset dial.

Below those dials is the Mode Button. Pressing this will allow you to cycle through the headset's four EQ Presets, which are detailed below:

  1. Signature Sound (1 beep)
  2. Bass Boost (2 beeps)
  3. Bass + Treble Boost (3 beeps)
  4. Vocal Boost (4 beeps)

When you press the Mode button, tones will play to indicate which EQ Preset has been activated, as noted above.

Next to the Mode Button is the Power Button. Press and hold this button to power the headset on and off. Quick-press this button to engage Superhuman Hearing Mode, which adjusts the audio to allow you to pinpoint quiet audio cues like enemy footsteps and weapon reloads.

Next to the Power Button is the USB Charge And Update Port. Plug the headset in via the included cable to charge the headset, or to update the headset's firmware, as covered in further detail here.

The LED Indicator is next to the USB port on the headset. This LED indicator will inform you of things like the battery level of the headset, its current pairing status, and whether the headset is currently charging.

(For more information, please check out the pairing and charging articles for this headset.)

HEADSET LED MEANING
Solid Blue Headset and Mini Transmitter Paired
Breathing Blue (While Charging) Battery Full
Double-Blink Blue Not Paired
Solid Red (While Charging) Battery Charging
LED Turns Off When Battery Is Fully Charged (If Headset Is Off)
Breathing Red Battery Low

The Mini Transmitter also has an LED indicator; this will inform you of things like the pairing status of the headset/transmitter (in the same way the headset would), but also whether the headset's mic is muted.

TRANSMITTER LED MEANING

Finally, after the LED indicator is the flip-to-mute Microphone. Flip the mic all the way forward to unmute the mic. The mic will stop at the second position shown in the image below, and you will hear a tone (low high) to indicate that the mic has been unmuted. Flip the mic to the first position to use the mic itself.

You can also bend the mic closer to you; the mic itself has a hinge that will allow limited horizontal movement to offer a better position for speaking, if necessary.
