In this article I’ll be breaking down (not literally) the Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450 Wireless PC Gaming Headset with my overall review on what I thought about it.
I’ll be going over the features of this headset along with the pros and cons.
The Pros And Cons
There are a lot of things I really liked about this headset but a few things that may be a deal breaker for others when trying to decide on a mic to buy.
I’m not sure if the auto shutdown feature is something they can change with a software update but that would make a world of a difference for me personally.
I’ll get into more specifics about each part of the headset in its own section below.
One of the best parts about this headset is the audio quality. This comes from the DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound and Surround Sound Modes that are built into it.
Once you hear a movie/gameplay with audio like this it becomes very hard to go back to anything lesser.
I’m not sure whether this features should go under sound or microphone but one of the best features of this headset is the mic monitoring option.
This allows you to hear yourself through your headset that way you can tell if you need to adjust the volume of your mic any.
This comes in handy a lot and saves a lot of those, “Can you hear me now?” and “Is that better?” type of questions, which our buddies just love to help us figure out!
Other than that though the mic is decent quality which gets the job done but nothing overall amazing worth mentioning.
Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450 has a decent comfort level to it from the padding they have in the inner top half of the headset which makes for easy resting on the top of your head.
Along with that you also half the padded ear pads which is main area where you want comfort.
The only thing I wish about the padding is that it was a little bit softer, it’s not a huge deal but I’m trying to be as thorough as possible here for the sake of the review.
Other than that I don’t have any complaints about how comfortable this headset is.
What Kind Of Gaming Is This Headset Meant For
With so many different type of genres of video games nowadays some companies are building their products to focus more on a niche specific market.
With this headset however it isn’t generally designed at any specific type; It can be used for mmo games fps games or basically anything of the sort.
It also makes for a great movie watching headset with the audio quality and the free range of it being wireless.
Where To Buy
First option and my most recommended is look over at Amazon to buy it, which is where I get most of my gaming gear.
After that you can look at neweggs website or bestbuy to see what you can find, they usually have a solid selection in terms of gaming equipment.
Usually I would say don’t even bother trying to find any gaming equipment that you’re looking for in local store but Turtle Beach does a great job of keeping their headsets in local stores. I see them constantly whenever I go into BestBuy.
Should You Buy This Headset
If you’ve stayed with me this long and still unsure on whether you should buy this headset then I can recommend a few other things to help you make up your mind.
First off as far as wireless headsets go in this price range, it is one of the top ones you will find (at the time of writing this anyways).
If you want to look at some other options you can check over at my best headsets article to get a few more ideas on ones that you might be interested in.
Other than that I will say just look at some other reviews of this headset to see what others are saying they like/dislike about it because one of those may answer your question on what’s keeping you from buying it or not.
