Turtle Beach has unveiled its first-wireless controller for Xbox and PC, the Designed for Xbox Turtle Beach Stealth Ultra Wireless Smart Game Controller.
Turtle Beach’s new king of wireless game controllers delivers ultra-premium performance through precision-crafted components and customization options for Xbox and PC gamers who demand the best. The Stealth Ultra features Turtle Beach’s proprietary low-latency wireless connectivity to Xbox consoles and Windows PCs, and Bluetooth for gaming on supported Smart TVs and Android mobile devices.
Stealth Ultra’s tactile microswitches provide fast, reliable responses and are designed to last up to five times longer than standard buttons found in other controllers. AntiDrift thumbsticks eliminate drift for precise control, and adjustable short and long-pull triggers ensure a response suited to the game being played.
Turtle Beach’s Stealth Ultra Controller also introduces a first-of-its-kind full-colour Connected Command Display that lets gamers customize RGB lighting, game & chat audio settings, thumbstick sensitivity, mappable buttons, and more. Plus, patented Turtle Beach technology also lets gamers receive social notifications from their phone in the Connected Command Display dashboard on the controller.
The Stealth Ultra also features adjustable power modes with the ability to provide up to 30-hours of battery life on a single charge, with power delivered via the included low-profile charging dock that also acts as a convenient place to store the controller when not in use.
“The Stealth Ultra’s premium components, build quality, and features elevate it beyond any other controller in the market today, and firmly establishes it as the must-have controller for gamers who want the best,” notes Cris Keirn, Interim CEO & SVP of Global Sales, Turtle Beach Corporation. “Turtle Beach controllers have been designed to provide the ultimate in control and to integrate features far exceeding the category. The all-new Stealth Ultra is a supreme testament to that ideal and another clear example of Turtle Beach continuing to deliver on that promise to our fans.”
The Stealth Ultra’s innovative full colour Connected Command Display not only keeps gamers connected while playing, but also offers extensive settings and adjustments accessible right on the controller’s dashboard.
A patented, Turtle Beach-exclusive feature only available on Stealth Ultra, the Connected Command Display shows social media notifications from your phone on the controller’s dashboard, meaning no more glancing away from the game and missing key moments while checking notifications. The Stealth Ultra’s Connected Command Display also gives players access to on-the-fly adjustments for 10 on-board profiles for different game genres or character loadouts. The display also allows gamers to adjust key controller performance aspects, like button mapping, thumbstick response, dead zones, and vibration intensity, as well as adjusting its visual style with 16.8 million different RGB colours so you can set your preference for aesthetics, notifications, and low battery warnings.
Beyond customization and appearance, the Stealth Ultra is designed for longevity and reliable performance. It features premium materials throughout, including soft-touch finishes and a comfortable ergonomic shape with micro-cooling channels, as well as tactile microswitches rated at a five million click lifecycle in the D-Pad, ABXY cluster, mappable buttons, and bumpers for reliable, faster responses with every press. The Stealth Ultra’s AntiDrift thumbsticks use contactless Hall Effect sensors to enhance accuracy and improve durability, and two extra sets of domed thumbstick caps are included for added customization. The trigger stops are adjustable for short hair triggers in action or FPS games, to full travel distance for fine adjustment of throttle and braking in racing games. Plus, four mappable quick-action buttons let gamers configure their exact control preferences depending on the game being played.
The included low-profile, high-speed charge dock provides Stealth Ultra a convenient place to rest and charge when it’s not in use. There are also a variety of adjustable power modes, including Eco Mode that turns off RGB lighting, allowing gamers to extend the Stealth Ultra’s battery life up to 30-hours on a single charge. High-speed USB 3.0 charging gets the controller back to 100% charge in under two hours. The charge dock also has a built-in USB port for connecting the controller’s wireless transmitter, and only takes up one USB port on Xbox or PC. The Stealth Ultra also comes with a 10ft / 3m USB cable, providing the ability to play and charge when needed.
The Stealth Ultra wouldn’t be a true Turtle Beach game controller without the brand’s standard suite of audio features. As with Turtle Beach’s award-winning Recon and REACT-R controllers, the Stealth Ultra also enhances any wired gaming headset connected via the 3.5mm jack with exclusive Turtle Beach-only audio features, including Superhuman Hearing for a competitive advantage, EQ audio presets, game and chat volume mix, mic monitoring, and more. Turtle Beach’s Pro-Aim Focus Mode also returns in the Stealth Ultra, which allows gamers to tune thumbstick sensitivity for enhanced long-range accuracy and is selectable as a preset for any of the four mappable buttons on the back of the controller.
Dual-rumble motors in the Stealth Ultra’s handles and triggers provide immersive vibration feedback and are also adjustable through the Connected Command Display dashboard. Beyond the Connected Command Display, gamers can also update and adjust the Stealth Ultra’s settings and customization options through the Control Centre 2 companion app which will be available on Xbox, PC, Android, and iOS mobile devices. When not in use, the Stealth Ultra controller, charge dock, cables and additional thumbcaps can be stored in the included hardshell travel case. Plus, the travel case features a built-in slot to charge the Stealth Ultra while in its case.
Turtle Beach’s Designed for Xbox Stealth Ultra Wireless Smart Controller launches on the 26th January, 2024.
