Gamers often prefer to play with headphones even if they are alone in the house and can use any speakers they want. Often headphones allow you to hear more nuances of the sound like that enemy creeping up behind you before you see them. While many of the new headsets that have been launching over the last few months have had virtual surround tech inside. Tt eSports has unveiled a cool new headset that uses stereo sound.


The headset is called the Shock and it is specifically designed for gaming. The headset has a microphone that allows the player to chat and issue orders when playing with a team. The mic has noise cancelling technology built-in to get the users voice rather than background sound.

Other features include inline controls for volume and muting of the mic. The ear cups entirely cover the ears to block external sounds and promise to be comfortable for extended gaming. Connecting the headphones requires a single USB port so you don't have to crawl around looking for ports on your computer. The Shock will ship in October at an undisclosed price.
