Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin

Last month, we looked at the Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Shock One, which we found ideal for gamers who want a highly configurable headset. This time, we’re looking at the Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin, which is a more basic package. It’s a stereo headset with a gold-plated analog 3.5mm jack connector. Gone is the tweakable software, USB connector, and virtual surround sound that we found on the Shock One. Having said that, the Shock Spin is a solid headset for more than just PC gaming.

Available in Shining White, Royal Red, and Diamond Black, the Shock Spin has a red Tt eSPORTS logo surrounded by a spiral design on each earcup. A rubber-sleeved strap bears most of the weight of the headset and keeps it from slipping around on your head. Like most of the gaming-oriented headsets, the Shock Spin utilizes an over-the-head design with large earcups, but these are some of the largest we’ve seen. The velvet cushioning has an inner diameter of over 2.5 inches, but your ears have a bit more than that thanks to a gap between the cushions and the driver housing. When wearing this headset, none of the earcup cushion was resting on the tops or lobes of our ears. Couple the large earcups with an extremely lightweight design, and Thermaltake has a very comfortable headset on its hands.

The cabling on the Shock Spin is braided for durability and to resist tangling. We also liked the modular in-line volume control and detachable omnidirectional microphone with its own mute switch. Unlike the boom mics that hover in front of your face on most headsets, the Shock Spin’s mic module has a rotatable clip that you can use to attach to your shirt. And because it utilizes an analog 3.5mm jack, you can use the headset with an MP3 player, tablet, portable DVD player, or any other device with a standard 3.5mm output port. Just disconnect the headset from the volume control box and you’ve got enough cabling to reach to your pocket (35 inches), which keeps you from having to fuss with the back of your PC every time you need to disconnect and reconnect it.

The aforementioned large earcups aren’t just for comfort’s sake; they house 50mm neodymium magnet drivers with a 15Hz to 20kHz frequency response. And because the ear cushions aren’t resting on any part of your ear, the sound that reaches your ear canal sounds more true-to-life, with midrange and bass response that was full and impressive in movies, games, and music. The headset was supremely comfortable even after wearing it for several hours. If you’re a gamer looking for an affordable yet comfortable headset, this is one of the better sounding units you’ll currently find.
