Gaming peripheral maker Turtle Beach has a new pair of headphones aimed specifically at VR gamers.
It’s so obvious. So painfully obvious. And yet we wonder why no one did it sooner.
The new Turtle Beach Stealth 350VR is a pair of gaming headphones with purported 30+ hour battery-powered amplification. What makes these headphones “built for VR”? A divet in the headband foam to let overhead cables through from a VR headset like the HTC Vive or OSVR HDK 2.
It’s so simple, and yet, after many continuous hours of VR gameplay, the top of my head already yearns for the comfort of not having added pressure from a bulky headset resting atop the cables.
Launching October 9th, the $80 Stealth 350VR headphones have all the usual trappings of mid-range gaming headphones: 50mm Neodymium speakers, fabric-wrapped memory foam over-ear cushions, and a removable noise-cancelling microphone. Turtle Beach also says the headphones have detachable cables for easy cable management as well as on-board audio controls to change your volume in VR without the need to remove your VR headset.
