Details on the first DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound headset for PlayStation 4

Turtle_Beach_Ear_Force_Stealth_500PThrough a press release, Turtle Beach has announced the first info for their Ear Force Stealth 500P item. The company declared that the product is the very first PlayStation 4 gaming headset to support the DTS Headphone:X 7.1 surround sound, a feature described as the “most advanced, accurate and realistic surround sound available for headphones.” Find the current price of the new product right now on Amazon.

The new tech supposedly allows “much more discrete control over speaker position and angles than other surround sound headphone solutions.” Thus, sounds created from walking through the snow, the radio and emptying a clip should sound more real. Along with videogames, the product is also tuned for movies and music. It comes with the four EQ settings: Bass Boost, Bass/Treble Boost, Signature Sound and Vocal Boost.

An included optical cord is needed to connect the Ear Force Stealth 500P to the PlayStation 4. Likewise, a USB wireless transmitter, which is also a part of the package, is required for voice chat. The expected battery life is around the maximum of 15 hours.

Aside from the PlayStation 4, the new gaming headset is compatible with the PlayStation 3. It supports the PlayStation Vita and mobile devices too using the included 3.5mm mobile cable. Chief Marketing Officer Bob Picunko also said that the product is expected to launch by this Christmas.
