The new TTesports Cronos headphones are a little more flexible than previous members of the Esports lineup as they will work with mobile devices in addition to your PC. They still use 40mm neodymium drivers and have a decent frequency response of 20HZ to 20KHZ and they have included a foldable microphone in the design for you to game or make calls with. Red & Blackness mods liked the padding and found wearing the headset comfortable over long periods of time which is even more important for mobile usage than gaming. Check out their full review to see you prefer these to the Beats headphones you see everyday.
"Today we take a look at some cool looking headphones that can be used with both a computer and with mobile devices such as cellphones, tablets, etc. They come from TTesports and they are called “Cronos”. Its obvious to me that a good amount of effort was put into making them as light weight as possible for mobile users. So lets take a closer look!"

Thermaltake brings BMW to the mouse
Our friends at Thermaltake recently sent us a fun new toy, the Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M adjustable gaming mouse. Yes, that's a lot of letters to describe a mouse, but I can assure you this mouse is unlike any you might have seen before.
Here are the key selling points:
- Air-through Ventilation
- 3D Steering
- Macro / Lighting software
- RGB LEDs in several places for customization
- Laser sensor up to 8300 DPI
The idea of the ventilation is to keep your sweaty hands a bit drier and cooler while the 3D steering allows the user to adjust the mouse surface in two different directions (one for height, one for horizontal angle) to find their preferred placement. The LEDs do allow for some interesting color combinations as long as you are okay with the preset colors that Tt eSPORTS has available in software.
Speaking of software, the application for customization is a little over exaggerated on the "extreme" design cues but enables the feature set you are looking for. Custom macros can be created and assigned to one of four buttons (A-D) with adjustments for timing, delay, etc. In addition, you can combine macros, lighting and DPI settings into one of five profiles that you can switch between easily with the thumb stick on the left side of the mouse.
Even better - all of this information (macros, profiles) is saved in the mouse after you disconnect it and take it to a different PC - no need to install the software to get the presets you configured before.
After a couple of us have used the mouse for a few days in the office, we put together the video below for you to see our thoughts and opinions as well as how the Level 10 M looks and feels. Even though it was designed in partnership with BMW, a current selling price of $95 on Newegg makes it hard to recommend the mouse to anyone but those of you that know for sure this is the mouse you want to use going forward.
