Testing & Performance  

To test the Tt eSPORTS CRONOS Riing RGB 7.1 Headset I choose to use the testing suite at It has a wide range of test to determine the just how well your headset performs. Also I want to add I'm almost 40 and with age hearing loss comes in one way or another. So I set the volume on the my computer master volume to 20. This level of sound should work well from all test.  

Setting for the CRONOS Riing RGB 7.1 Headset:  
Sample Rate: 96 kHz 24 Bits  
Equalizer: Off  
Xear Surround Headphone: Enabled / Music mode  
    Room Size: Medium  
Xear Audio Brilliant: Enabled   
    Level: 3  
Xear Dynamic Bass: Enabled   
    Level: 5   
    Cut-off Frequency: 200  
Xear Smart Volume: Disabled  
Xear Voice Clarity: Disabled  
Xear Surround Max: Enabled  

Frequency Response  

Is a two part test with sound files testing the bass and treble extensions. The bass extension test your headphones 10 Hz to 200 Hz and the treble extension test your headset 22 kHz to 8 kHz. Good headphone will go as low as 20 Hz on the bass test, and you will hear have high pitched frequencies up to 20 kHz on the treble test.   

The bass test I could hear the frequency after the 10 Hz was announced so the test was great.  

The treble test I could hear the frequency about at 16 kHz. This is lower than good headphone rating but I might add age and past work history will have an effect on this test.  

Dynamic Range  

The dynamic range test goes between the quietest and loudest signals in which this case is white noise to speech telling you how far below dBFS (decibels below full scale). The test is not related to a specific function of the headset, but it helps to test isolation within a noisy environment.  

I personally could hear the Voice Over speech as low as 72 dBFS.  


The quality test, tests the bass frequencies to check how well the speakers are made. If they are poorly made they will have a rattling or buzzing noise.  

The headset had no buzzing or rattling.  

Driver Matching  

The driver matching reproduces a stereo frequency to both earpieces at the exact identical level. The tone should feel as though it is right in the middle of your head.  

The headset was perfectly matched through the whole test which was up to 10 kHz.  


The wiring test checks to makes sure the left wiring is connected to the left headphone & the right wiring to the right headphone.   

The wiring was connected correctly.  

Binaural Test  

The binaural test has two sets of wooden door knock. The recordings were captured by having a microphone in someone's ear so that it collects the sound that reaches the pinnae, the external part of the ear. This works only with headphones and you are determining whether the sound is right next to you and how real does the wooden door sound.  

The wooden sound of the doors on the right had a little more bass sound to it, but the left was perfectly clear. 

Microphone Test  

To test out the microphone and not rely on other person thoughts I simply recorded myself at different outputs levels.   

The microphone input worked well in the playbacks.  

Additional Note on the Software Testing  

While testing the Tt eSPORTS CRONOS Riing RGB 7.1 headset I found a software glitch that caused a cracking/popping sound that is heard while making setting adjustments or opening menus while playing music. Proclockers has contacted ThermalTake about the issue.
