Tesoro Kuven 7.1 Gaming Headset review - Hades' sound helm

Testing

I “tested” Tesoro Kuven with both compressed MP3/AAC files on mobile devices (amped with the Fiio E12, as well as un-amped on a Huawei Ascend P6). I also hooked them up to an ASUS Xonar Essence for PC audio, where I used Flac files. Lastly I used the USB dongle present in the package.

To compare the Tesoro Kuven, I used a pair of SteelSeries 9H, Logitech G230, HyperX Cloud, Audio Technica M50x, and even the Philips Fidelio L2 thrown in there for good measure.

As for testing the headphones, I used my usual playlist, which you can see below:

Imagine Dragons - Radioactive
Diablo Swing Orchestra - Guerilla Laments
Dream Theater - Scarred
Dead can Dance - The Snake and the Moon
MS MR - Hurricane
Coeur de Pirate - Metal Gleamed in the Twilight
Cristopher Tin - Mado Kara Mieru
Arctic Monkeys - Brianstorm
Cage the Elephant - Sail to the Sun
fun. - Carry On
Florence and the Machines - Drumming Song
Nirvana - Smells like Teen Spirit
Dido - Let us Move On
Metallica - One
Darren Korb - Paper Boats
Saltillo - Grafting
Massive Attack - Teardrop
Venetian Snares - Hajnal
In Flames - Lord Hypnos
Rammstein - Keine Lust
Cranberries - Zombie
MS MR - Hurricane
Dead can Dance - Into the Labyrinth
Excision & Datsik - Deviance
Queen - The show must go on
Catamenia - Dreams of Winterland

As always, while I describe my impressions in detail, and I am fairly certain my hearing is accurate enough, I do have to put a massive "SUBJECTIVE" disclaimer on the results.

Since these are gaming headsets, I had to try them in at least several gaming scenarios. As such, I spent a few hours with my updated games "library" for sound-checking:

Battlefield 4
Assassin's Creed: Unity
Civilization: Beyond Earth
Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm
Far Cry 4
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Valiant Hearts: The Great War
Tales from the Borderlands
