Nowadays, mobile games can be said to be quite popular. After work and study, many people choose to take out their mobile phones and play a game; or team up with classmates and friends anytime and anywhere, and they have become a lot of people’s normal. When playing games, in addition to the good performance of the mobile phone to ensure a smooth gaming experience, sound is also very important. You should know that in many games, especially in some FPS games, a good headset can help players realize the position of listening and can greatly improve the game record.
Because of this, we see that many bluetooth headsets on the market put forward the concept of low latency, which is to reduce the transmission delay of the headset during the game and enhance the gaming experience. However, there is still a delay in low latency, and no delay at all is the best choice. A few days ago, Steelseries launched a TUSQ in-ear gaming headset. Its wired connection design completely solves the delay problem. At the same time, it also uses a dual microphone design, supports high-quality voice calls, helps you communicate effectively with your teammates during the game, and becomes a good helper for your game. Recently, I also experienced this headset, and then let’s take a look at its performance.
The earphone packaging uses Steelseries’s iconic orange-gray color scheme, which is fully recognizable. The sound quality on the front of the package contains information such as product rendering and product name. At the same time, a golden Steelseries Arctis icon is printed on the upper left corner of the package, which also indicates the identity of this headset, the Steelseries Arctis series. On the side and back of the package, the sound quality of the headset’s packaging information and product parameters are displayed.
Open the package, pull out the inner box, and you can see the Steelseries TUSQ headset, including ear-mounted earbuds and detachable boom microphones. Below the compartment, there are some other accessories, such as silicone eartips of different sizes, flannel storage bags and so on.
Steelseries TUSQ in-ear gaming earphones adopt an ear-mounted design. This wearing design can bring good stability, and the earphones will not fall off due to violent shaking during the game. At the same time, it can also alleviate the stethoscope effect to a certain extent and bring a better sense of hearing.
The earphones use silver and black colors, and the black part is made of frosted ABS material, which feels good and can avoid fingerprints when removing the earphones. The silver part of the sound quality is the Steelseries LOGO, which improves the quality of the headset while increasing the recognition of the headset.
The microphone adopts a detachable design, and users can decide whether to install a microphone according to their own usage. The microphone adopts an omnidirectional sound pickup design with a frequency response range of 100-1KHz and a sensitivity of -44dBV, which can provide users with an excellent voice call experience.
Steelseries TUSQ earphone wire is made of ordinary rubber material, which has good overall softness and is convenient for storage. A wire-controlled microphone is also set on the left earphone line to meet the needs of users for daily voice calls.
In terms of performance, Steelseries TUSQ in-ear gaming earphones use a 10mm dynamic driver with an impedance of 16Ω and a sensitivity of 102dB, which reduces the driving requirements. No special equipment is required. Ordinary mobile phones can well promote the earphones. Take the Redmi Note 10 mobile phone we tested as an example. When the volume is set to 50%, the sound in the headset is basically very loud. Normal use basically only needs to maintain the volume at 30%-40%.
As for the sound performance of the headset, from the actual experience, the tri-band performance is relatively balanced. At the same time, as a gaming headset, relatively speaking, it will focus more on the middle and low frequencies. The low frequency extension of the headset is still quite good, but it does not appear to be roaring. There is no problem at all for listening to some popular music everyday.
The performance in the game, Steelseries TUSQ in-ear gaming headset is quite outstanding. We deliberately tested FPS games such as “Game For Peace” and “Call of Duty Mobile”. During the game, the sound of various weapons can be restored well, and a very real and shocking experience can be presented. At the same time, the sound positioning is also very accurate. Whether it is the sound of gunshots in the distance, the sound of approaching enemy footsteps, and the sound of opening doors and windows, they can be well detected and enhance the game experience.
As for the effect of the microphone, it also performed well, especially the detachable microphone, which has a good noise reduction effect, and can communicate well with teammates during the game. In addition, the microphone can be bent at will to adjust the angle to obtain the best possible sound pickup effect.
With the explosive development of bluetooth headsets, wired gaming headsets designed for mobile games such as Steelseries TUSQ in-ear gaming headsets have become less and less common. You must know that wired connection methods can avoid bluetooth delays, The disconnected state ensures that the game will not change due to these unexpected situations.
At the same time, the Steelseries TUSQ gaming headset also uses an in-ear design, which is very light overall; a detachable microphone increases the freedom of use; the dual microphone design is more suitable for different usage scenarios. On this basis, Steelseries TUSQ in-ear gaming headsets also have relatively good sound quality performance, which can meet the daily needs of listening to songs. If you are not satisfied with the gaming experience presented by bluetooth headsets, Steelseries TUSQ in-ear gaming earphones will be a good choice.
