The ThunderX3 TH40 by Aerocool ships in a dark grey box, with a large product image on the front which immediately makes a feature of the LED earcups.
On the back of the box we find multi-lingual product specifications.
Turning to the headset itself, it is certainly a good-looking piece of kit. The earcups are attached to the headband via a stainless steel slider which looks very classy and should stand the test of time as well.
The back of each earcup features a mesh section which allows the whole of the earcup to be illuminated 1 of 7 colours. We look at this in more depth on the next page.
A small ThunderX3 logo is also positioned in a central location behind each earcup.
The headband itself features ThunderX3 branding across the top, and has a good half-inch of padding where the headset sits on your skull.
Looking at the inside of each earcup, we can see these cups are circumaural, meaning they completely cover your ears. The foam padding is covered by what feels like faux-leather.
The microphone measures approximately 17cm in length and is fully detachable. It is also flexible, meaning it can be moulded into any desired shape.
The TH40 also features an in-line controller, which has 3 functions. First, via the front-facing buttons, users can switch between 1 of the 7 LED colours – or switch them off entirely.
The side of the controller also features a volume wheel as well as a mute switch for the mic.
Lastly, the headset connects via a USB port, rather than the traditional 3.5mm jacks. The cable itself is 2.1m long, with a gold-plated USB port. While the cable is not braided, it is covered by a textured, silicon-like material.
