Turtle Beach have confirmed the release of new gaming headsets, the Stealth 520 and Stealth 420X+ featuring new Superhuman Hearing! I’ve always loved Turtle Beach headphones, and the am always to see what new features they’ve introduced to making gaming more fun and enjoyable.

Headlining the Stealth 520 and Stealth 420X+’s new features is Turtle Beach’s exclusive Superhuman Hearing audio setting which gives players the competitive advantage by giving them the ability to hear soft sounds like approaching enemy footsteps, reloading weapons and vehicles moving in the distance.
