Gaming hardware and audio technology manufacturer Turtle Beach has released the Ear Force Stealth 450, the latest in its long line of wireless PC gaming headsets.

Similar in build to the company’s Stealth 420X headset released for the Xbox One earlier this year, the Ear Force Stealth 450 is suited for lengthy PC gaming sessions as well as more lightweight tasks like mobile gaming.

The Ear Force Stealth 450 boasts wireless technology that enables untethered delivery of gaming and chat audio. The hardware requires a single USB dongle, which transmits audio output directly to the user’s headset.

Turtle Beach’s latest release features several audio presets optimized for DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound, and allows users to further tweak output for an ideal experience. Turtle Beach’s audio processing features include Superhuman Hearing for amplification of key in-game sound cues and Variable Mic Monitoring, letting users hear their own voice over the headset in order to determine optimal volume.

The Ear Force Stealth 450 is ergonomically designed with mesh-wrapped headphones and an adjustable microphone. The mic can also be removed, allowing the headphones to be used independently for off-PC purposes like mobile gaming. The Stealth 450 is also equipped with voiced indicators that warn of changes in settings and presets, allowing users to easily adjust output in low-light environments.

The device is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that allows up to 15 hours of wireless functionality between charges.

“The Stealth 450 PC gaming headset offers an amazing mix of best-in-class features to PC gamers for an amazing price,” said Turtle Beach CEO Juergen Stark. “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.”

The Ear Force Stealth 450 is priced at $130.
