I bet you’re wondering if the Stealth 450 Wireless headset is right for you, huh? With so many headsets on the market it can get pretty overwhelming at times, but lets dive right in and take a look, because Turtle Beach has done it again.
This year Turtle Beach launched the Ear Force Stealth 450 fully wireless PC headset, featuring DTS X7.1, these are the surround sound headset solution for PC and Mac users. It comes with Turtle Beach’s own SuperHuman Hearing, giving you the competitive edge over other players you’ve been wanting, allowing you to hear enemies before they appear.
The Stealth 450 comes with a few other features, such as variable mic monitoring so you can make sure you aren’t yelling at your friends when you’re not trying to, and three onboard EQ presets – bass boost, bass and treble boots and vocal boost). With the 50mm speakers and the mesh fabric earpads means you’ll get crystal clear audio and a comfortable fit. The headset also comes with a removable boom mic for when you want to chat with your friends or just listen to music on the go using a mobile device.
I’ve been using this headset for about 2 weeks now and I have to say I really like how comfortable they feel and how light they are. I have found that the headset has about a 15-20 foot range, but this will vary depending on your setup. The headset also has an auto shut-off feature in case you just leave them on your desk and walk away.
The audio voice prompts are very handy when cycling through the different EQ presets. Having volume control and mic monitoring controls right on the headset is also a nice feature. The only thing that really bothered me was how short the charging cable is, but with 15 hours of gameplay on a single charge you shouldn’t run out of juice during a session.
The Stealth 450 is a powerful beast of a machine that features the highest quality surround sound audio, and combines it with the most cloud-like fit you can imagine. If you’re looking for a powerful and long lasting wireless headset with a $129 price tag, then the Stealth 450 headset is the one to get.
