The Cronos: Cables & Volume Controller

The Cronos comes with two main cables. The first is a long white cable measuring 1.8m (about 70in which equals about 5.3ft.), and a red cable that’s about 1/2 the size.

The white cable is primarily for use on a desktop. It’s braided, with a velcro strap with the TtESport logo attached for cable management.

A gold plated USB dongle is also present with the TtEsport name shown on its base. The USB connection is only used to power the headset’s LED’s. For audio playback / transmission you will need to use the 3.5mm audio jacks.

Speaking of the jacks Tt Esport has made knowing the difference between the jack for the headphone, and the jack for the microphone pretty simple. The jack for the mic, besides having the traditional pink on the jack itself, and picture of a mic, has an obvious slightly elevated red area. The jack for the headset, besides having green rings, on the jack, and a picture of a pair of headsets, shows a solid white area. See? Simple.

Moving down the cable we see Cronos’s Volume Controller. It’s a pretty standard controller utilizing a wheel to raise, or lower the volume to your desired level. The controller also comes with a MIC Mute function, and has the Tt eSports Dragon logo.

The controller does not come with a clip to attach to your person, when in use (Get your minds out of the gutter you perves. You know what we meant), but its light enough, and small enough that a clip would not be needed. To be honest clips on volume controllers for headsets, and headphones have been fading away for a while now so its no surprise the Cronos controller does not have one.

Like we mentioned in our intro, the Cronos can be used on mobile devices. This is accomplished by using the red cable shown below which is equipped with a 3.5mm audio jack, and is connected to the Cronos, as with the white cable, via mini USB. The port is located just below the left can of the headset. Switching between the cables is a breeze. Just unplug the cord you don’t want, and plug in the one you do want. No locks to disable, or additional security to deal with. Easy peasey.

You could use the white cable on your portable devices as it has the same 3.5mm Audio Jacks the red cable has, but using the red cable is preferable as it’s more ideal for on the go use. You won’t have to worry about the USB dongle just hanging around not being used. Now using some tablets, or laptops you’d probably still use the dongle, but with smart phones, and MP3′s…don’t really see that happening. If your concern is using the volume controller; honestly, at least over here, we tend to use the volume controllers of our mobile devices vs. stand alone controllers so to us its not an issue.
