Thermaltake Technology is a manufacturer of PC cases, power supplies and cooling solutions with its main headquarters located in Taipei, Taiwan. Recently the firm requested BMW Group DesignworksUSA- a subsidiary of BMW - to develop a design concept for a high end gaming headset.
The headset comes after a successful design collaboration on the Level_10 chassis in 2009 and the Level_10 M Mouse - launched last year. The challenge for the industrial design firm was to translate the Level_10 chassis design language into the headset design.
The headset successfully translated the iconic Level_10 design language into a pure/bended aluminum design, negative-space and an overall architectural-structure finish. The result is a solid, yet lightweight looking headset with an audiophile design character.
The curved layering effect of the ear piece resembles sound waves and has been directly adapted from the tower design concept.
The Level_10 M Headset features high sound quality with 40mm driver units and embedded with Tt eSPORTS' most advanced acoustic engineering. Gamers can experience a rich sound at low frequencies, purifying sensation at mid frequency, and harmonic at the high frequencies.
The headset is constructed from solid aluminum for a robust, yet lightweight appearance with a high comfort level. Large headphone capsules and a smooth-surface headband provide maximum comfort for hours while the sliding adjustments and an adjustable microphone provides a customised fit.
The microphone is foldable and can be tucked when not needed. This nifty feature also calls for easy storage in small shelves or desks and during transportation.
The headset was officially launched in March 2013 at Hanover, Germany during the CeBIT 2013 exhibition. From May 2013, the headset will be available at most major retail stores and online in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Available in black and white, the headset retails for $149.99
The Level_10 M Headset is on digital display at Tt eSports’ website.
