We here at Turtle Beach are excited to announce our involvement with the Cinequest Film & VR Festival that is taking place in Silicon Valley from February 28th to March 12th. As part of the film-based event, purveyors of emerging technologies will be able to get their hands on our new Stealth 350VR headsets.
That’s a lot of information to digest – so let’s break it down. The new Stealth 350VR headset is a Turtle Beach headset specifically designed for use with virtual reality headsets, such as your PS VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. Utilizing battery-powered amplification and 50mm speakers, the Stealth 350VR is able to create crisp highs and thundering lows in order to take your virtual reality experience to the next level.
The Stealth 350VR is designed specifically for the virtual reality user in mind as it provides clearance for VR headbands and cables while also utilizing our Mic Monitoring system, so you can hear yourself to avoid shouting at other players.
I hear you, “what does this have to do with Cinequest?” Well, the hint is in the name. Cinequest is an event that brings together creative minds, innovative leaders, artists, and audiences into one place where they can experience one of the modern world’s greatest forms of entertainment: film.
As part of our involvement with Cinequest, Turtle Beach has supplied hundreds of Stealth 350VR headsets for use over the course of the 13-day event. Audience members will be able to experience the artists’, directors’, and technology innovators’ work through our headsets. These films aren’t your usual fare; they have been specifically curated by Cinequest for their virtual reality qualities.
The VR portion of the Cinequest event will take place over the weekends, from March 2nd to 5th and March 9th to 12th. This is where the real action takes places as you’ll be able to experience VR short films that run for 20 minutes each.
After each film, audience members are invited to experience the Cinequest VR Canteen and Gallery where the VR party can continue! Here in the VR Gallery, you will be able to continue experiencing VR with our Stealth 350VR headsets, while interacting with other community members, artists, and innovators.
Cinequest is also hosting a special Cinequest VR Award ceremony where they will be recognizing artists, technologists, and companies that are driving the virtual reality industry forward into new and exciting frontiers.
Cinequest Festival Passes
There are several different passes available for the varying levels of users, from the $100 Express Line Access all the way to the $500 VIP Access Pass that grants you entrance to all screenings, parties, and a host of other VIP-only services.

Events like the Cinequest VR film festival – which has an attendance bigger than Sundance! – is a thrilling opportunity for purveyors of new technologies to express their talent and experience what has been developed in recent years. We’re excited to be such an integral part of this program through the use of our Stealth 350VR headsets. We can’t wait to see what happens next in the VR world!
