In competitive gaming one of the most important things is sound. Whether it be for communicating with your teammates or listening for the footsteps of your enemy, the right gaming headset can be the difference between clutching a 1v3, and getting shot in the back unexpectedly. This is why we’re pleased to have the opportunity today to take a look at the Tt eSports Verto gaming headset by Thermaltake.
The packing of the product is actually quite nice. It features a large image of the headset itself with a black and red color scheme which matches the product. It also displays some of the products key features including: support for mobile devices, auto adjustable headband, fold-flat design and inline volume controls.
We are really glad Thermaltake chose to go with a matte finish for their packing and not a glossy one, as it displays a more premium look.
The rear of the box showcases the headsets features in greater detail and displays its technical specifications which include: 40mm neodymium magnet driver, a 10Hz ~ 22KHz frequency response, 98 DB at 1KHz sensitivity, and the impedance is 32 Ohms. The microphone is omni-directional with noise cancelling and a sensitivity of -35 ± 3DB as well as a frequency of 300Hz~ 10KHz.
Inside the box, we find both a PC compatible cable with inline volume controls which breaks out into standard dual-3.5mm mic and headphone jacks, as well as an additional mobile-friendly single 3.5mm cable with both stereo audio and microphone input. Also included is a handy carrying pouch which is made of a soft faux-leather like material and displays the Tt eSports dragon logo.
DESIGN & BUILD QUALITY
The headset itself is mostly all black with red accents consisting of the Tt eSports dragon on both the left and right ear-cups as well as a red cloth on the inside of them. It also features an all metal frame, an auto adjustable headband and a fold-flat design. It really is quite solidly built and has a very premium feel.
The ear-cups are a strange, sort of square shape, the exterior is made out of plastic with a soft-touch rubber coating that feels quite nice in the hand, although they are very prone to fingerprints and attract dust.
At the bottom of the left cup, we’ll find the 3.5mm input which works with both of the included cables. W’re very pleased with Thermaltake’s decision to make the cables modular as it helps to ensure the headset lasts a long time, especially when traveling. We’ve lost many a pair of headphones due to shorts in the cables after regular use.
The inline audio controls feature a microphone toggle switch and a volume up and down radial which has moderate resistance so, there’s very little chance of accidentally changing the volume by rubbing up against your clothing while clipped on.
The all plastic construction has a cheap feel, especially when compared to the rest of the headset. We would have liked to them use the same soft-touch rubber here as with the ear-cups. We also would have preferred a button rather than the switch for muting/un-muting the microphone.
The upside is, it probably won’t cost much to replace the cable if it ever gets lost or broken.
