MAPPABLE BUTTONS

The Mode Button and lower volume dial/Mappable Wheel can be assigned to a new function based on your gaming style.

To change the button’s assignment, follow these steps:

  4. Once selected, your headset will save the new configuration.

PLEASE NOTE: The Lower Volume Dial can be assigned to Chat Audio ONLY when the transmitter is in the XBOX mode and is being used with an Xbox console. When the transmitter is in the USB Mode, and is being used with a PlayStation console, PC, or Nintendo Switch in docked mode, there is no way to assign the Lower Volume Dial to Chat Audio. This is a result of the limitations related to the way these platforms process the audio, and is not related to the headset itself.


PROSPECS GLASSES RELIEF SYSTEM

For those who game with glasses, adjust the ProSpecs Glasses Friendly System for added comfort.

The ProSpecs Glasses Relief System creates a channel in the ear cushion to help reduce pressure on your glasses frame. To adjust this, you must first remove the ear cushion. Hold the ear cushion firmly and pull it away from the speaker. The ear cushion should come off with minimal effort.

Depending on the size of your glasses frame, use the tab adjustment to create the appropriate sized channel in the ear cushion. By default, the adjustment tab is set to the shallowest setting. To increase the size/depth of the channel in the ear cushion, simply pull the tab and attach it to the post, based on your preference.

After you’ve adjusted the glasses-friendly channel to your liking, place the ear cushion back onto the speaker. The ear cushion should snap into place with minimal effort.

Manual Pairing Instructions

Your headset and transmitter will already be paired out of the box, and so you should not need to pair the headset and transmitter before using them.
If, however, the headset/transmitter LEDs are double-blinking green, the headset and transmitter may need to be re-paired.
To do so, please do the following:
1. Connect your transmitter to an available USB port on your console. Make sure the transmitter is in the Xbox mode. Your transmitter will double-blink green as it searches to pair with your headset.

2. Power on your Stealth 700 Gen 2 MAX for Xbox headset; the LED indication on the headset will double-blink green as it searches for your transmitter.

3. Within 20 seconds, the LED indications on the headset and transmitter should turn a solid green to indicate a successful pairing.

If the LEDs still double-blink green after this process is performed, or if the headset and transmitter otherwise do not pair after this process, please contact our support team for further assistance.


No Mic Audio

The Stealth 700 Gen 2 MAX headset has an adjustable, flip-to-mute mic. To use the mic, gently push/”flip” the mic forwards. You will hear a tone (low high) to indicate the mic is now unmuted. To mute the mic, just push/”flip” the mic back the other way. You will hear a tone (high low) to indicate that the mic is now muted.

If other players are unable to hear you in chat when using the headset – no matter which platform the headset is being used with, please double-check the following.

WHEN IN XBOX MODE

1. The Headset And Transmitter Are Paired/Transmitter Is In Correct Mode/Headset Is Detected By Console.

For the mic to work, the headset and transmitter must be paired, and the transmitter must be in the correct mode.

Please note that the transmitter must be plugged in to a USB port on the console for this pairing to occur. To double-check the status of the headset and transmitter’s pairing, just take a look at the LEDs on the headset and transmitter themselves. If both LEDs are lit up solid green, the headset and transmitter are successfully paired.

If the LEDs are both solid green, double-check that the transmitter is in the correct mode. The transmitter can be put in to two different modes: Xbox and USB. If the transmitter is in the USB mode but is connected to an Xbox console you may have audio issues even if the headset and transmitter are paired successfully.

As an additional test to see if the console itself is recognizing the headset:

  1. Press the Xbox/Home button on the Xbox One controller.
  2. Go to Settings >> All Settings >> Kinect & Devices >> Devices & Accessories.
  3. You will see the controller you are currently using; you should be able to scroll to the right to see other devices being used with the Console. The headset will appear in this list as “Headset”.

Do you see the headset in that list?

If the headset and console are paired, the transmitter is in the correct mode, and you can see the headset in that list, but you cannot be heard, please proceed to step 2.

If you do not see that headset listed even if the headset and transmitter are paired and the transmitter is in the correct mode, please contact our Support Team.

2. Party Test – Check Icon Ring

  1. Press the Xbox/Home button on the Xbox One controller.
  2. Scroll to the Party & Chats tab, then and select “Start A Party”. You do not need to invite any other players to this party; you can perform this test even if you are the only member in the party.
  3. Speak into the mic. When you speak into the mic, does a ring light up around your icon next to your Gamertag (in the list of party members)?

Please note whether you see that ring, and then proceed to Step 3.

3. Record a Test Message

  1. Press the Xbox/Home button on the Xbox One Controller.
  2. Scroll to the Party & Chats tab, and then select “New Chat”.
  3. Select someone from the list – you do not need to select anyone in particular, as you will not actually be sending a message. Once you have selected someone, tap the Menu button to complete selection.
  4. Two options will then appear: Write A Message (pencil icon, on the left) and Record A Message (mic icon, on the right). Select the Record A Message icon on the right.
  5. Select Record, and then speak into the mic. When you are done recording, stop the recording.
  6. You should see the new recording under the Write A Message/Record A Message icons. Select Play, and listen to that recording you made. This will tell you how your voice will sound to other players. Can you hear your voice clearly?

If you can hear your voice clearly when you play back that recording you’ve just made, the mic itself is working well – there could be an issue with the settings, or the way the headset and console are interacting. Please proceed to Step 4.

If you cannot hear your voice clearly when you play back that recording you’ve just made, please contact our Support Team with the results of Steps 2 and 3.

4. Bluetooth Test Call

The next step would be to test the headset with a different device. *For this test, you will need a Bluetooth-compatible smartphone.

  1. Hold down the headset’s Bluetooth button until you hear the “Bluetooth Pairing” voice prompt.
  2. Connect to your headset in your phone’s Bluetooth Settings.
  3. Make a test call on the phone. Be sure to keep the phone covered and away from you, to make sure that the headset’s mic is the mic picking up the sound, and not the internal microphones in the smartphone itself.
  4. During that test call, could you be heard clearly when you spoke into the mic?

If you can be heard clearly during that test call, the mic itself is working well.

If you cannot be heard clearly during that test call, please contact our Support Team.
5. Power Cycle Headset/Console

To perform a quick power cycle with the Headset/Console, please do the following, in this order:

  1. Press and hold the Power Button on the headset until the Power LED turns off.
  2. Disconnect the transmitter from the console.
  3. Power down the Xbox console. When it has fully powered down, unplug the console from the wall outlet.
  4. Let everything sit for a minute.
  5. Plug the console back in, and power the console on again.
  6. After the console has fully powered on and loaded up, reconnect the transmitter to the console.
  7. Press and hold the Power button on the headset until the Power LED lights up.
  8. Re-pair the headset and transmitter.

To pair the headset:

  1. Connect the transmitter to the USB port on the Xbox console.
  2. Press and hold the power button to power the headset on.
  3. Wait for the headset and transmitter to pair. When the headset and transmitter are successfully paired, the LEDs on both will turn solid green.

If the mic issues persist even after a power cycle is performed, please contact the support team for additional assistance.

WHEN IN USB MODE

1. Headset Is Paired/Transmitter Is In USB Mode

The headset and transmitter must be paired in order for the mic to work, so first make sure that the headset and transmitter have been successfully paired.

Please note that the transmitter must be plugged in to a USB port on the console for this pairing to occur. To double-check the status of the headset and transmitter’s pairing, just take a look at the LEDs on the headset and transmitter themselves. If both LEDs are lit up solid green, the headset and transmitter are successfully paired.

If the LEDs are both solid green, double-check that the transmitter is in the correct mode. The transmitter can be put in to two different modes: Xbox and USB. If the transmitter is in the Xbox mode but is connected to a different USB device (not an Xbox console), you may have audio issues, even if the headset and transmitter are paired successfully.

2. Check Platforms/Game Settings

For some platforms (a PlayStation console, a PC), the headset will need to be set as the default device in the platform settings. In addition, the game or program itself will likely have its own audio settings, which may include an independent setting for input and output device.

To check these settings, you’ll need to go into the settings menu for the specific platform you are looking to use the headset with. This will vary depending on your platform.

3. Recording Test

If the headset and transmitter are paired, the transmitter is in the correct mode, and the settings (for the game/program and the platform being used) are configured correctly, try a recording test.

To do this, you’ll need to use the recording option available to you on the platform in question. For a PC, you can use an application like Sound Recorder or Voice Recorder; for a console, you can record a test message.

When you play back that recording you made, can you hear what you had recorded clearly and consistently?
If you cannot hear your voice clearly when you play back that recording you’ve just made, please contact our Support Team.

4. Bluetooth Test Call

The next step would be to test the headset with a different device. *For this test, you will need a Bluetooth-compatible smartphone.

  1. Hold down the headset’s Bluetooth button until you hear the “Bluetooth Pairing” voice prompt.
  2. Connect to your headset in your phone’s Bluetooth Settings.
  3. Make a test call on the phone. Be sure to keep the phone covered and away from you, to make sure that the headset’s mic is the mic picking up the sound, and not the internal microphones in the smartphone itself.
  4. During that test call, could you be heard clearly when you spoke into the mic?

If you can be heard clearly during that test call, the mic itself is working well.

If you cannot be heard clearly during that test call, please contact our Support Team.

  • The Stealth 700 Gen 2 MAX For Xbox headset offers 40 hours of rechargeable battery life. After 40 hours of use, it will need to be recharged before it can be used again.
HEADSET FEATURES

1. Does the headset need to be paired to the transmitter for use with an Xbox console?

  • Yes. The transmitter has an Xbox mode and a USB mode. When the headset is used with an Xbox console, you will need to put the transmitter into the Xbox mode before pairing the headset and transmitter. When the headset is used with a USB device, you will need to put the transmitter into the USB mode before pairing the headset and transmitter.

2. How do I mute the mic?

  • The Stealth 700 Gen 2 MAX For Xbox headset has a flip-to-mute mic. To mute the mic, simply push (“flip”) the mic all the way towards the back of the headset. When the mic is muted, you will hear a descending tone. To unmute the mic, push/flip the mic all the way forward. When the mic is unmuted, you will hear an ascending tone.

TROUBLESHOOTING

1. My headset sounds are abnormal, it didn’t sound like this before. What could be going on here?

  • Please double check to ensure you have not left the Superhuman Hearing option on. Superhuman Hearing (SHH) is a situational feature designed to prioritize certain sounds to give you the edge in intense gaming scenarios. This should not be left on all the time.
  • Please connect your headset to your preferred version of the Audio Hub. From there, please check to see if you have the option for SHH enabled. Disabling this feature should return your audio back to its preferred state.

If turning off the SHH feature does not clear up your inconvenience, please reach out to our support team for assistance with troubleshooting.
2. My headset keeps shutting off on its own when no audio is playing.

  • In order to conserve battery life, your headset will power off after no audio is played through it for 10 consecutive minutes. This is a fixed feature and cannot be adjusted.
  • This feature helps to save battery life – if you forget to power the headset off for the night after a long gaming session, you will only lose a few minutes of battery life, not a whole night’s worth.
  • To easily avoid the Auto-Shutdown feature, you can keep some music playing in the background, like the game’s soundtrack. The headset will detect the audio and will not engage the Auto-Shutdown feature. Please note that mic input alone will not avoid the Auto-Shutdown feature.

If your headset keeps shutting off while audio is being played, please reach out to our support team for further assistance.
