    Logitech G430 or Turtle Beach Stealth 700

    I need a new gaming headset for my PS4. I have 2 headsets I want to choose between:
    - Logitech G430
    - Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum
    - Turtle Beach Stealth 700

    From the Stealth 700 I know that it gives surround sound and that the sound quality is very good. From the G430 I don't know because I only read reviews about it that people write when they use it on the PC.
    Can someone tell me their experiences with the G430 whilst using it on the PS4? How is the sound quality? And if I customize the sound through the software, for example I turn up the bass, and I use it on the PS4, will the bass also be better on the PS4? And if I turn on the surround sound from the G430 through the software, will the surround sound work on the ps4 as well?

    Which headset do you recommend from these three? Can someone answer all these questions above for me?
    I'll use the headset for FPS-games, such as COD and Fortnite; I really want to hear my enemies coming, so i can kill them easier.
    Thanks

    Cant comment on the others but I use a Stealth 700 myself since October and no probs so far.

    yeah, I have one question: do you experience any differences in sound between the Stealth 700 and a regular stereo gaming headset?

    and do you notice any delay between what happens on your screen and what comes through the headset?

    Delay no,I havent noticed any that I could tell.

    As for sound difference from regular stereo yeah.
    Many people may say otherwise,while a good stereo headset can sound great I think True Surround,or even virtual surround can make a difference.
    The Stealth 700 says it uses DTS Surround Headphone X (whatever that is)
    But when I got this headset I tested it in a private game of MWR with a mate (SuperMod Haze on this forum) to see if I could accurately pinpoint his direction as he was running around me and stop.
    I reckon 9 times out of 10 I successfully got it right.
    But its almost something you gotta train your ears to get used too.
    Ofcourse after a while I didnt really pay that much attention anymore.

    The Stealth 700 also has 'superhuman hearing' mode. Supposedly good for pinpointing those footsteps.
    And yes,it does seem to bring background sounds closer and cuts out bass etc I found the sound a little to odd and just play mostly using 'signature' sound.
    It has bass/treble etc boost and while it sounds good I find the extra bass gets in the way when playing MP games like CoD etc when you are trying to hear players around you.
    It has some good features too,flip to mute mic,active noise cancellation (not really that effective).
    You can even stream music from your phone via bluetooth,listen to game sound and party chat all at the same time if want .
    Range isnt fantastic,you cant walk around the house for eg and still be in chat range,but its around 10M as stated by TB.(My wireless Stereo Plantronics Gamecom P80 range is much better)
    Battery life they say is about 10 hours but I struggle to get that.

    Keep in mind to change most settings you'll need to connect to your phone as well and download the TB app.
    Or,connect to PC. Its firmware updateable too.

    It does feel a little plasticy but Im happy with mine and glad to have bought it.

    edit: If you have a PS4 slim dont bother getting it as its best used with a PS4 that has the Optical out. Game and chat volumes are controlled seperately and you will get the surround feature that way.
    PS4 Slim does not have optical.
    Regular and Pro do.

    Thanks, I knew of the app and firmware, etc. The only thing I wanted to know was if there was any delay
