Thrustmaster T.Racing Scuderia Ferrari Edition-DTS Gaming Headset Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
It’s fair to say that over the last few years I have reviewed quite a lot of peripherals. However, back when I first started at eTeknix some 8 or 9 years ago, some of the first things I ever reviewed were indeed Thrustmaster peripherals. Their Ferrari licensed controllers, steering wheels, and more. Find it pretty exciting that even today I am still seeing some new Ferrari licensed hardware from Thrustmaster, with the new Scuderia Ferrari edition DTS gaming headset. Because it’s officially licensed, it bears a strong resemblance to the real-life Scuderia Ferrari Paddocks team headsets, which is just fantastic.
Thrustmaster T.Racing Ferrari Edition Gaming Headset
It’s certainly well-equipped too, as this isn’t just a designer headset that doesn’t take itself seriously. Thrustmaster has equipped it with a set of powerful 50mm drivers, as well as powerful processing hardware to deliver 3D audio with DTS Headphone:X. You get a range of onboard controls too, for volume, microphone mute, etc. There’s a folding microphone that is also detachable. Most importantly, there is support for all current major consoles and mobile devices.
