Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450, a full-featured wireless PC option at $130

When shopping for audio PC and console accessories, you have to add Turtle Beach to your list of options. The company has become one of the premiere manufacturers of gaming audio solutions over the last 35 years, and this year, the company is releasing one of its best wireless options ever.

Turtle Beach recently spent some time in NYC to demonstrate the EAR FORCE Stealth 450, a 100% fully wireless PC gaming headset that is packed with features and upgraded hardware.

The Stealth 450 offer 50mm speakers, DTS 7.1 Surround Sound and a wireless USB transmitter for “crystal clear game and chat audio,” according to the company’s announcements.

Fans of Turtle Beach may be familiar with the trademarked “Superhuman Hearing” feature from previous models and the EAR FORCE Stealth 450 will offer the same competitive advantage for new buyers.

As we mentioned earlier, the Ear Force Stealth offers DTS Surround Sound modes, it will also include four audio presets, mic monitoring and will feature a removable high-sensitivity boom mic. Also included in the new headset are voice prompts, a 15 hour rechargeable battery and  will be mobile/tablet compatible.

If you are new to the Superhuman Hearing feature, it’s an exclusive  Turtle Beach audio preset that gives gamers a “competitive advantage of hearing enemies before they come into view”. The headset also features Turtle Beach’s full-range audio, brought to life by the 50mm Neodymium speakers.

The Mic Monitoring option allows you to hear your voice when you speak, which to me, is an absolute must when buying a new headset. A few Windows features allow you to do this but the sound quality is improved when your device is built specifically to include the feature.

The headset’s adjustable boom is also removable. Players can use headset with mobile devices and tablets, perfect for  gaming or for watching videos.

The headset was designed for use with the PC and will release on September 12, 2015. The price should also be a welcomed addition to the Turtle Beach lineup. The new Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450 will launch this year for just $129 and you can pre-order now from authorized retailers like Amazon.com.
