HEAD­PHONES

Ear Force Stealth 500p www.turtlebeach.com

Tur­tle Beach has sig­nif­i­cantly up­dated its PX4 head­phones with its new Stealth 500p, a truly wire­less head­set for PS4. That means there’s no longer any need to con­nect a wire to your DualShock, since chat is now han­dled by the small USB don­gle (a lit­tle larger than the PS Gold equiv­a­lent, but sig­nif­i­cantly smaller than the PX4’s base unit) that plugs into the front of the PS4 and con­nects to the Op­ti­cal port via a short cable. The head­set boasts DTS 7.1 sur­round

sound and fea­tures vo­cal feed­back on set­tings you’ve changed while wear­ing them, as op­posed to the Morse Code-like beeps of pre­vi­ous de­vices. Chat is clear, but game sound can be too bassy at

times, though rarely to the detri­ment of the sound­track. Crys­tal clar­ity can be at­tained by spend­ing more, but for £99, the 500p does

an ex­cel­lent job of im­per­son­at­ing more ex­pen­sive head­phones.
