Tt eSPORTS is a branch of Thermaltake that is entirely devoted to developing products catered towards gaming enthusiasts. They are responsible for innovating unique and aggressive gaming products such as mice, keyboards and headsets. Today, I will be investigating the quality and performance of Tt eSPORTS’ Shock One gaming headset from Thermaltake. Many companies such as Creative and Corsair have already made their mark on the gaming market. It’s time to see how Tt epsorts from Thermaltake fairs against the competition.The Shock One gaming headset came in a big rectangular box. Anyone who has bought a gaming headset knows that it is huge and geared towards gamers. It has a red and black color scheme over the entirety of the box that resembles Thermaltake’s logo colors. Below is a list of the package contents that I will be discussing about that came with the Shock One gaming headset.
- Shock One Gaming Headset
- Installation CD compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP
- Warranty Information book
- Two Ear-Pad Cushions: Leather and Velvet
- 1 x Tt eSPORTS headset bag
Thermaltake is one of those companies that are not afraid to stand out. Their products are always daring and aggressive. Bigger is better for them in many respects. The general design is made to wrap around your head and engulf the entirety of your ears. I really liked this because most gaming headsets that are just circular always push on the ears; instead their design actually outlined the contours of my ear. It made them very comfortable to wear over long periods of time.
The gaming headset has a foldable design which is very convenient in case you need to bring it on the go. It has 10 levels of adjustment which is allows it to comfortably fit onto anyone’s head. It also has two different ear pad cushions: Velvet ear pads and Leather ear pads. Later on we will see that the velvet ear pads were not that remarkable. The leather ear pads performed much better during game testing and bass intensive media files. However, let’s go over the features and specs that the Shock One gaming headset has to offer.
