Today we are going to be taking a look at a new headset from Tesoro, the Olivant. Tesoro Project Manager, John Lin, said it right “Gaming headsets require 3 things to be truly epic: sound quality, comfort for long duration use and durability”. Tag along and see if the Olivant can live up to the expectations!
PACKAGING & SPECIFICATIONS
The packaging Olivant comes in is a shadowy deviant looking box which gives that intriguing yet eerie vibe. You get a quick look at the headset through the plastic window on the front. Packaged for retail you’ll see the headset name as well as some key features from the 50mm Driver units to the detachable mic.
On the backside you’ll see the specifications for the Olivant. One very appealing part of the Olivant is it’s 3m total cord length. As you’ll see later on it’s broken up between two cables but 3m of length is is some of the largest we’ve seen. Along the side you’ll see the contents of box, allowing you to see what you’re getting before you open the box.
With a quick glance around the box you can definitely see that what John Lin mentioned has been taken into consideration with the build of Olivant. Opening the box and removing the contents the headset is strapped into a soft plastic shell which is rather flimsy and doesn’t seem to protective but if you’re purchasing it off the shelf you shouldn’t have too many issues with it being banged around before you open it up.
Besides the headset you’ll remove the mic as well as the braided cable which extends an additional 1.6m to the already 1.4m cable and adds an in-line remote to control the volume and on/off toggle the mic. The add on cable has two end-poles, one for the mic input and one for headphone they are labeled so it’s pretty simple.
Paper work included consists of a quick start guide as well as a fold out catalogue of Tesoro’s other products.
