TteSports Level 10M PC Gaming Headset Review

A Closer Look
This may just be a headset, but even from the first picture we can see it is packed with design features! The most obvious to me is that the ear cups feature a “D” shape, a big change to the most common round ear cups of most headsets. That black finish isn’t plastic either, it’s a soft touch and rather durable feeling rubber coating that just eats light, giving it a dark and sleek look. This is off-set by the dark red rectangle accent as well as the chrome and red detailing on the round pivot mount in the centre of the ear cup.
The headband also features the same soft touch material, printed with a nice TteSports dragon and logo.
The bulk of the construction of the headset is aluminium, this makes it super light weight for its size, but also very durable. TteSports even say it’s good for dissipating heat, so it may even help keep your head cool in the heat of battle (personally, I doubt you’ll notice this feature).
Each side features a slide mechanism for size adjustment, but the red tab can also be pulled down and this locks the adjustment in place.
Most of the components of the headset are designed to look like two plates bolted together, giving some really unique style points to the design. The square shape of the back plate with the round ear pads does look odd at first, but I rather like it. The padding on the ear cups is a soft leather like material and its nicely padded for comfort, with a soft black cloth backing over the drivers.
The microphone is hard wired, but can be folded up out of the way when not in use.
It folds down from a pivot that doubles as the corner join of the driver backplate.
As with all the other joins on the headset, the fitting is really nice and there are no loose components, squeaks or rattles to any of the joins on the headset.
Connectivity is handled by a propitiatory USB port on the bottom of each ear cup, you only need to use one but you have a choice of which side you would like the wire to be on, which is very handy indeed.
Here we can see the cable connected to the back of the ear cup. You’ll also notice several pivots and joins from the headband to the “Y”, which then joins onto the back of the driver. Each of these allow a subtle amount of twisting and turning, which should help a lot in finding a snug fit.
The back of the driver rests against the headband, there is a small tough rubber pad that helps prevent it scratching its self, but also reduces any friction noise, or additional ear cup movement when you’re wearing the set. The wire is exposed from the headband and runs down into the top of the headset, there is a “S” bend to the wire to allow space for the headband to be expanded.
Exposed bolts all over the headset are really nicely finished and compliment the black rubber and aluminium construction well.
The headband is covered is a super soft fabric with a soft sponge internal padding that is very forgiving, but more than enough to keep the headset from slipping from your head when gaming.
Finally, we see the headset fits nice and snug in the well padded carry pouch. There is even a little snug on the left side to keep your wires, which should prevent them from scratching your lovely headset.
