TekRepublic TH Pro 7.1 Surround USB Headset Review

Article Index

Communication is a two-way street and it is just as important to hear somebody clearly as it is to be heard. I understand that when most people go shopping for a gaming headset, they always want to know how it handles music as well as video games. I don't understand why very few ask if the microphone is any good. Perhaps the rationale is that you spend more time listening through it than using the microphone, although I know a few friends who have regretted their gaming headset purchase decision once they realize that nobody on the team can understand what they are saying.

TekRepublic TH Pro Virtual 7.1 Surround USB Headset

 

Considering the average price of a decent gaming headset, buying one shouldn't be an impulsive decision. Users should read multiple reviews and cross-reference other user experiences before making the call. Comfort is also something that should be factored in, more so than sound quality, for it comes down to whether you can wear it for several hours or if the fit distracts you from actually enjoying the game. Balance is the key and there are no shortage of options out there to choose from, especially since new manufacturers and new products always surface. Case in point, TekRepublic is a company that has recently come to my attention with their line of gaming headsets that are designed to provide the "best overall value" for users, one of which is the new TekRepublic TH Pro headset.

 

The TekRepublic TH Pro is a virtual 7.1 surround gaming headset that uses a USB 2.0 connection. The TH Pro headset from TekRepublic also comes with an inline volume control, as well as mute buttons for both the headset and the microphone. Designed for extended gaming use, TekRepublic has outfitted the TH Pro headset with noise isolating ear pads and an adjustable padded headband for comfort. The TH TekRepublic Pro also has a unidirectional microphone attached to the left ear piece that can be adjusted and positioned, depending on the user.
