Tesoro Kuven Pro gaming headset UK release and price

Tesoro Kuven ProTesoro has just announced the release of their latest 5.1 stereo gaming headset, the Kuven Pro.

As the name suggests, the Kuven Pro is a more advanced version of the previous iterations of the Tesoro Kuven headset and features True 5.1 sound.

With a total of 8 drivers (4 in each ear cup) and fully customisable control of every channel, the Kuven.pro promises to immerse the player into the battlefield by providing realistic, directional audio.

As with other Tesoro products the naming of this bit of tech comes from the realms of myth and legend. The headset is aptly named after the helmet of the Greek god of the underworld, Hades. The Kuven allowed its wearer to turn invisible in order to gain tactical advantage in battle. You see what they did there?

Each channel (Voice / Front / Rear/ Cen. / Sub.) can be customised via the removable in-line control. The controller also allows gamers to instantly turn off the microphone or speaker. Additionally, for those looking for even more, the Kuven Pro can be switched to virtual 7.1 surround sound audio mode.

The unidirectional noise canceling microphone blocks out distracting noise for crystal clear chatting/rants/put downs.

Both the headband and ear cups are padded with memory foam for a comfortable and personal fit. The ear cups can be folded in, for easy and safe transport when heading out to LAN parties or gaming competitions and the headband is adjustable, naturally.
