Turtle Beach Stealth

The only thing that always bothered me about using my Turtle Beach headset on my Xbox One was the fact that the dongle (that word will always make me snicker) is taking up precious USB space. Space that could be used for more memory. Thankfully those days are OVER!

From the Press Release:
This morning, leading gaming headset and audio accessory brand Turtle Beach Corporation (NASDAQ: HEAR) announced the global retail availability of the company’s all-new Stealth 700 & Stealth 600 series wireless surround sound headsets for the Xbox One family of devices (Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X), and the Stealth 600 wireless surround sound headset for PlayStation®4. The Stealth 700 headset for PS4™ launches globally on September 24, 2017.

With today’s launch, the Stealth 700 for Xbox One joins the Stealth 600 for Xbox One as the first two gaming headsets in the world that use Microsoft’s Xbox Wireless technology to connect directly to the console just like your Xbox Wireless Controller. No wires, no base station, and no adapter needed. When paired directly to Xbox One, gamers simply need to turn on their headset and start playing.

Beyond groundbreaking wireless connectivity and immersive surround sound, the Stealth 700 & Stealth 600 series headsets feature everything from Turtle Beach’s unique ProSpecs™ Glasses Friendly and comfort-driven design to its exclusive Superhuman Hearing™ sound setting that gives you a competitive advantage, and much more…all for a MSRP starting at $99.95. The Stealth 700 headsets also offer Active Noise-Cancellation, Bluetooth connectivity with app-based settings, and other features for a MSRP of $149.95. The Stealth 700 & 600 series headsets are available today at www.turtlebeach.com and participating retailers around the world.

“Holiday 2017 is going to be another great season for gaming, and the Stealth 700 & Stealth 600 redefine what gamers should expect from a wireless gaming headset at the $99 and $149 price points,” said Juergen Stark, CEO, Turtle Beach Corporation. “With the imminent launch of Xbox One X as well as a handful of AAA multiplayer game launches on the horizon, we know gamers will be looking for a new or replacement headset, and the Stealth 700 & 600 are great choices with our signature high-quality sound for the best possible gaming audio experience, supported with features we know can help them play better and win more.”

Wireless Game & Chat – With Xbox Wireless, gamers on Xbox One can connect their Stealth 700 & 600 directly to the console just like an Xbox Wireless Controller – no wires, no base station, and no adapter needed.

Thelma Is Fantastic and Now You Can Watch the Opening Scene

Published

on

One of this year’s most beautiful and subdued horror films is Joachim Trier’s Thelma (review), which opens in Los Angeles tonight. To give you a bit of what the film is like, The Orchard have released the opening scene, which shows a man and his daughter hunting in the bleak Norwegian winter. When they come across a young deer, the true intentions of this trip become apparent…

Having seen Thelma, I can tell you that it’s truly something special. It’s a slow burn, to be certain, but it plays out gorgeously, resulting in a film that has yet to leave my mind.

Locations and tickets for Thelma can be found here.

Synopsis:
Thelma, a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja, a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja – feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clearer that the seizures are a symptom of inexplicable, often dangerous, supernatural abilities, Thelma is confronted with tragic secrets of her past, and the terrifying implications of her powers.
