17 April 2014
Summary: There are many things that we love about the Shock One headset, so forgive us if we have a hard time finding more negatives. If you plan on communicating and being understood during a gaming session, this headset will not let you down and the surround sound will blow you away.
Pros: Tuned In:, Big or Small:, Perfectly Placed:, Sturdy Build:, Mind-Blowing Sound:, Perfect Condition:
Tt eSPORTS SHOCK One Gaming Headset will produce sound through its 40mm drivers, and capture your voice with its microphone. Also, the SHOCK One is a pretty stylish, and would definitely get attention at LAN parties with the illuminating Tt logo on each ear cup.
Conclusion: The sound quality is good but I think that the sound at lower volumes sound a bit like talking in a soda can, you need to boost the volume to get a clear and nice sound that is balanced with a good bass. At lower volumes the sound is very distant comapred to other headphones on the market.
Conclusion: The Tt eSports Shock One headset is a different breed than existing Dolby surround sound headsets. It has better voice isolation, equally matched in terms of surround sound, but has weaker directional audio.
Pros: Highly portable headset, Attention to finer details like ear-pad switching and inline controller design, Good microphone quality, Solid bass enhancement
Cons: Poor directional audio, Takes a lot of adjustments so get better audio quality and eliminate "muffledness", Not the most comfortable headset for long durations, sometimes causes headaches, Appearance not for everyone, Microsoft Windows only
Conclusion: The Tt eSports Shock One is an interesting headset, with its LED lights and USB connection; they look great on and sound great too. There are features such as the controller that really make the headphones nice to use.
Pros: Performed well in music and gaming tests, Portable, Comfortable, LED lights, USB
Cons: Cost, USB can be a downside for some who have already got an expensive sound card
Summary: The Tt eSPORTS Shock One headset is a well made and well designed headset, its packaging is more than adequate and it comes nicely presented. It also has a host of features that include Virtual surround sound, a noise cancelling mic, interchangeable ear-pads and a smart, well thought out control...
