Stealth 450 - Surround Sound Driver Installation/Setup Guide

1. Download the DTS Headphone:X Surround Driver here.

2. Plug the Stealth 450 Transmitter into an open USB Port, and allow Windows Automatic Installation to occur. This may take a couple of minutes. 



3. Run the Installer.


4. A window will open, asking Do you want to run this file? Select Run to continue.


5. Select Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450 if prompted.


6. The software will install. When installation is complete, a window will open, showing that it was a success.



7. You will be prompted to restart your computer.


8. After your computer re-starts, you will need to configure the settings. With the Headset and Transmitter plugged into the computer, right-click the Speaker Icon in the bottom-right corner of your taskbar. Then, Right-click Playback Devices.

9. Right-click Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450, and select "Set As Default Device".


10. Click the Configure button (config.png) -- located at the bottom-left of the window -- and set the configuration to 7.1 Surround Sound.



11. In the Playback Devices list, right-click Turtle Beach Ear Force Stealth 450 again and select Properties.


12. Click the Turtle Beach Audio Settings tab (shown below). From here, you can configure your advanced audio settings.



  1. Multiple DTS Headphone:X 7.1 Surround Sound Modes are available to select from. Each mode provides a unique sonic environment:
    1. Game Mode - Place yourself in the middle of the action and hear your games just as the developers intended
    2. Movie Mode - Get the best seat in the house and experience your movies like never before
    3. Music Mode - Bring your music onto a personal stage for your own private concert experience
    4. DTS Headphone:X Off (Stereo Mode) - Down-mix all your Surround Channels into standard stereo playback.  In this mode you will still hear all of the audio content passing through your 7.1 channels including Front Left, Front Right, Center, Surround Right, Surround Left, Rear Right, Rear Left, and Sub.

  2. To bypass DTS Headphone:X, select Surround OFF. This will pass-through only the Front Left and Front Right audio channels. Any audio that would normally pass through other Surround channels will not be heard. The DTS Headphone:X Mode menu will be greyed out, and you will see the option to turn the Surround On, as shown in the image below. 
  3. Superhuman Hearing 
    • Here you can manually engage Superhuman Hearing, or set a Hot-key so it can be conveniently engaged mid-game while you are away from the Turtle Beach Audio Settings Menu.
