Tt eSports Isurus Dub: A Headset On-The-Go
There's a perpetual debate between fans of earbuds versus small on-ear headphones. Earbuds can typically provide more sound pressure and even better sound quality than small, cheap headphones, when you use them correctly.
I'm not able to use my plastic head for acoustic measurements because its simple design does not include ear canals. Consequently, we're stuck with my subjective impressions for this review.

The Isurus Dub’s construction quality is high, though this is what we'd expect from a set of earbuds selling for more than $30.
The tiny microphone, which is built into the cable and sits just below your jaw, isn't half-bad. As long as your ambient noise level isn't too high, it's both effective and convenient, regardless of whether you're on a desktop PC or mobile device. A splitter divides the cable into separate connectors to plug into your headphone and mic jacks. Mobile devices should be good to go without this by just using the combined connector.
If you hoped that the Tt eSports Isurus Dub would function as a replacement for a full-size headset, then you'll be disappointed. Then again, the earbuds should also not be underestimated. If you position them correctly, they're capable of an almost pain-inducing maximum sound pressure level.
The sound quality isn't as impressive. However, it's certainly acceptable in this price range. Bass from 50 Hz and up is audible, though frequencies lower than that are understandably missing, given such small drivers. Mid-range sound is almost exemplary. But the drivers sacrifice highs in the process. With that said, I’ve heard substantially more expensive earbuds perform a lot worse. Tt eSports' Isurus Dub is certainly not a high-end option, but it's suitable for gaming on the go.

Unnecesarily hideous looking crapReply
Aimed at the teenage crowdReply
Wouldn't even bother to buy these :sReply
Truly nice products . Worth the purchase .Reply
The colors are no good. The hardware looks like all the other hardware available.Reply
No Level 10 products? I have the Level 10 Mouse and it's one of the best I've ever used.Reply
Lackluster features... Specially the headphones. Why invest in LEDs instead of using better speakers?!Reply
Makes no friggin' sense to me. Who is calling the shots for the quality and features of these pieces of crap?

I've tested it long times ago and I'm using both by myself :)

"Even before we question Tt eSports' color choice, the decision to use it on the F-keys, Enter, Shift, Alt, and Ctrl over WASD is perplexing."Reply
Perhaps you should do some research on who the target market is for this keyboard. I didn't see a single mention of the Prime *TEAM* anywhere in your review of the G1, rather you just kept calling it "The Prime". I mean, it even shows them on the box.
