   Unlike most review samples that reach our lab on a daily basis gaming peripherals require quite a bit of time to test and so we always wait until we have more than just 2 or 3 here before we start testing since usually that saves us a good amount of time. Of course the most ideal and obvious way for someone to test gaming peripherals is by playing games and so we also need to have a brand new game title in our hands in order to do that. Luckily we haven't finished Batman Arkham Knight yet (no free time to play unfortunately) and we also just started to play the brand new World Of Warships naval action MMO (by our friends over at Wargaming.net creators of World Of Tanks and World Of Airplanes) so since we have everything covered today we're going to take a thorough look at one of the latest gaming peripherals released by Tt eSPORTS the Shock 3D 7.1 headset.

   “Challenge is the game” highlights the philosophy to bring out gamers’ addiction in gaming and the ambition of reaching to the extreme. Tt eSPORTS, a gaming obsessed division from Thermaltake, is uniting gamers from all over the world in a unique & fascinating eSPORTS culture, inherited the spirits of Thermaltake, is an energetic, powerful, bold and intelligent challenger who never says “no” to the extreme competition. We do not only provide gamers the ultimate gaming gears but also fulfills the passion to achieve the ultimate success. Thermaltake has been a well-known brand in the gaming & DIY market for PC Chassis, Coolers and Power Supplies PSU for many years. The brand personality of unique, aggressive, vivid and stylish makes Thermaltake an expert in creating exciting things and fascinating environment for gamers and enthusiasts. Tt eSPORTS inherited the brand personality with unique and creative design by observing users’ behaviors and requirements. The fan cooling design on Tt eSPORTS Challenger keyboard demonstrate the brand spirit. It is the worldwide first keyboard with fan cooling function that could dry your hand sweats and blow tension away during cut-throat competition.

   As far back as i can recall Tt eSPORTS always had the Shock line of gaming headsets but the Shock 3D 7.1 is actually the very first model in that line to feature 7.1 virtual surround sound. To achieve this Tt eSPORTS has used two 40mm neodymium stereo drivers that feature a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz, 92dB sensitivity and 32 Ohm impedance with a virtual surround USB sound card (placed inside one of the earcups). This of course is nothing new since there are numerous similar gaming headsets in the market by pretty much every gaming peripheral manufacturer but Tt eSPORTS didn't just stay there since as you will also see later on they also focused quite a bit in the design (didn't win the 2015 Red Dot Design Award for no reason) and quality of the Shock 3D 7.1. A flexible Omni-directional microphone with a 100Hz-10KHz frequency response, -35dB (+-3dB) sensitivity, 2.2 KOhm impedance and auto shut-off function while in upward position completes the package.
