First introduced to market in the fall of 2011, the amazing ViviTouch® actuator technology was demonstrated in handheld devices with “HD feel” and is now being applied in a new way to headphones. And when combined with Tt eSPORTS’ expertise and passion in gaming headsets, the e-Sports community will be facing a revolutionized acoustic sensation when gaming in FPS, Racing, or MMORPG. Together with Tt eSPORTS’ other pro-gaming peripherals, gaming will be more than just a competition, but also an acoustically stimulating process as well.

ViviTouch® EAP technology is also customizable, such that the vibrating sections can be tuned to perfectly match the game’s acoustic setting. Combining realistic visual presentation that we have seen on First-Person scenario games on the market, ViviTouch® actuator-based acoustic technology can definitely shake up the world of e-Sports, exclusive only through Tt eSPORTS.
