Turtle Beach has launched a new wireless headset for Xbox One, the Stealth 600. What's most interesting about this latest headset, however, may not be what drives its sound, but how it connects to your console.

The Stealth 600 is the first headset available for purchase that leverages Microsoft's Xbox Wireless tech. That's the same protocol that your Xbox One controllers use to connect to your console. That means you won't need any dongles to wirelessly connect the headset to your Xbox One, and setup should be quick and easy. You should even be able to use the headset wirelessly with your PC if you have an Xbox Wireless Adapter plugged in.

On the sound front, the Stealth 600 supports Windows Sonic Surround Sound for "immersive virtual surround sound" through its 50mm speakers. The microphone can be flipped up out of the way to mute, and Turtle Beach claims the headset's over-ear frame is glasses friendly. Lastly, in terms of battery life, Turtle Beach says you'll be able to squeeze out 15 hours before needing to charge up again.

As for availability, Turtle Beach says to expect the Stealth 600 to go on sale starting today from its website in limited quantities for $99.95. The headset will hit retailers, along with its bigger brother, the Stealth 700, on September 4.
