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. However, when it comes to frequency response, virtual surround sound, and mic quality, the SHOCK One is not as strong as similarly priced and featured headsets, such as the Corsair Vengeance 1500.
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. The headset's directional audio performance in FPS games such as CoD: Black Ops and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 are both very poor. The Shock One's performance is somewhere between a surround sound headset and stereo headset.
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: Setting up the Shock One was straight forward and installing the software only took a few minutes. It does require a PC restart as part of the install, which we strongly recommend you do as when we neglected to do that ourselves we then experienced some errors when closing down our machine later.
The Shock One is a solid gaming headset.
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. The issue with the cable rubbing on your clothes and you being able to hear it is annoying but the way I see it, most of the time you’re not listening to anything; you have them off your head, so I don’t feel it’s much of an issue.
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
