ThunderX3 TH40 Gaming Headset Review

Thunder X3 are back on eTeknix once again, following their award-winning debut with the TM60 Laser Gaming Mouse. For a new brand to hit the market with such a high-quality product on the first go is pretty rare, but since ThunderX3 is the gaming focused brand created by the well-known Aerocool, who have done all their own design and manufacturing for these products, that hardly comes as a surprise.


Equipped with powerful 53mm drivers, which are sure to give some most welcome punch to your gaming audio (or any audio source for that matter), as well as  a padded over-ear design, virtual 7.1 surround processing, a noise cancelling microphone and much more, the TH40 are well equipped for all your desktop movie, music and gaming needs, so let’s jump right into the good stuff and take a look and a listen at what they have to offer.


The drivers are nice and large at 53mm, but with the soft padding around the ear cups, as well as a closed back design, we’re expecting them to pack a good bass response, which is often welcome to many users. The omni-direction noise-cancelling microphone is detachable, which is always a nice feature to have, and finally, we’ve got a good length 2.1m braided USB cable, meaning they’re plug and play friendly.


The packaging is very nicely designed, with a clear image of the headset on the front, and showing off a teaser of the 7 colour LED lighting, as well as touting the 7.1 surround processing.


Around the back, all the usual technical details (see above).


The box opens out, giving you a good look at the actual headset, as well as a rundown of major features, such as the microphone and USB setup.

    It truly sucks, on paper it’s amazing, but in reality it’s just another trash headset.
    Microphone is potato quality. Sound does sound quite well. My biggest problem with this headset: the cable. After a few months already the first problems occured. “Your pc doesn’t recognize the usb”. After a bit of investigation I found out that the a part of the cable, which is nearby the volume change thingy, was broken from inside out. I have no idea what could have caused it. I looked on the site where I bought it from: no return possible. So I decided to fix it myself. It worked again, but after a few weeks I got the same error message again on my pc. Now I have decided that I will buy a new headset. And never again will I buy another item from ThunderX3, as my first encounter with them was such a huge dissappointment
