Turtle Beach announces new Stealth 450 wireless headset

Yeah, yeah, I know we told you that the Stealth 450 was a Star Wars-branded headset a few days ago, but there was an image issue with the press release. The real Stealth 450 looks a lot more like something Sam Fisher might wear.

“The Stealth 450 PC gaming headset offers an amazing mix of best-in-class features to PC gamers for an amazing price,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “And the 450 is very similar in design to our fan-favorite 420X that we launched for Xbox One in July, so we know we’ve got another winning gaming headset sure to keep PC gamers happy.”

A PC gaming super-headset, the Stealth 450 offers a full suite of features, mirroring much of what was seen in the aforementioned Xbox One headset. And it also has the bonus of looking like it’d be right at home in the satchel of your favorite super-spy… if your favorite super-spy played video games instead of going on death-defying missions.

Here’s what’s in store:

  • 100% Fully Wireless – No wires anywhere. Experience crystal clear game and chat audio using the latest, intelligent channel-hopping technology for interference-free wireless gaming.
  • Simple Setup – One simple-to-set-up USB connection to the PC and players’ wireless gaming dreams come true.
  • DTS Headphone: X 7.1 Surround Sound & Sound Presets – Experience DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound with incredibly accurate, unmatched spatialization.
  • Superhuman Hearing – From the faintest of enemy footsteps to weapon reloads off in the distance, Superhuman Hearing ensures gamers hear it all by amplifying soft sounds when switched on. This exclusive Turtle Beach audio processing gives players the competitive advantage of hearing enemies before they come into view.
  • STOP SHOUTING! – Variable Mic Monitoring lets players hear their own voice in the headset to avoid shouting.
  • Lightweight & Comfortable Headset Design – An updated over-ear headset design with breathable, fabric/mesh-wrapped ear-cups provides for superior comfort during those long PC gaming sessions.
  • Mic Check

    – A high-sensitivity, adjustable boom mic picks-up voice audio loud and clear. Remove the mic to enjoy mobile/tablet gaming, as well as listening to music and watching movies.

  • Voice Prompts – Audible voice prompts from the headset tell gamers what setting they’ve selected.
  • 15 Hour Rechargeable Battery – A built-in rechargeable battery delivers up to 15 hours of wireless gaming.

Yep, that’s your fully-featured headset right there. As I mentioned in the past, I have a great history with the brand that is Turtle Beach, and their hardware has always been a favorite of mine. If that sounds like you too, then you’re in the same boat I’m in with all these announcements as of late from the company.

Better make up your mind quickly, the Stealth 450’s will be available soon and cost you $129.99 USD. You can pre-order a set just about anywhere.
