I hope that everyone who might browse this site in the southern states is doing OK. We are having a crazy weather system rolling through with wind and rain up here. However, it's nothing in comparison to what just hit Mississippi and Alabama. I just read that one of the tornadoes hit EF5 status. The whole system also had a path of around 135 miles, which is unheard of. Some of the videos that were posted online are just wild. I was watching one with a guy in his truck, watching a tornado pass within 50 yards and take out a few buildings. I couldn't imagine having my entire town or city wiped out. My heart goes out to all the victims.

 

The show must go on. This iteration has to do with audio devices, gaming headsets in particular. With the advent of voice chatting and the increased quality of sound, a good headset is crucial for optimal gaming. Speakers are nice, however they are disruptive when living with others. I wouldn't be able to crank the volume and hear everything necessary during late night gaming sessions with a speaker setup. However, with a headset, I can listen at any volume, to my hearts content. Sound is also used as a gameplay element also. Stealth games rely on hearing things in the distance, like NPC talking and footsteps, which can be missed on a speaker setup.

 

Thermaltake has a new addition to the gamer audio market with the Tt eSPORTS Shock Spin gaming headset. The Shock Spin puts a bit of style in the mundane headset market. Among the Shock Spin's looks are some good features, as well. Driving the sound are two neodymium magnet speakers for enhanced performance. There is an optional in line volume controller. Instead of an attached mic on the Shock Spin, it is included separately. For comfort, there is an auto adjusting rubber head strap and ergonomic shaped velvet ear cushions. The input is a 3.5mm connector, which means it can be used with compatible devices, as well as the computer. Thermaltake offers 3 colors; Shining White, Diamond Black, and Royal Red.
