The “iF Product Design Award” , first presented in 1953, the "iF product design award" ranks among the world's most important design awards and represents the seal of approval for good design. For 2014 the top-class specialist juries have bestowed the award on the Tt eSPORTS SYBARIS Hybrid Headset, the gaming gear brand of Thermaltake Technology Group, stood out among 3,249 entries from 55 countries, receiving the prestigious “2014 iF Product Design Award”! A jury comprised of some of the world's leading design experts crowned the Tt eSPORTS SYBARIS Hybrid Headset as the winner! In addition to their design, the Tt eSPORTS SYBARIS Hybrid Headset was primarily assessed in terms of such criteria as creativity, design, practical aspect, functionality, application, universal design and safety.



The Tt eSPORTS SYBARIS Hybrid Headset dominated the competition with its powerful e-Sports gaming peripheral design, which portrays its outstanding qualities to brilliant visual effect. In the "2014 iF Product Design Award" meanwhile – held by the iF-International Forum Design Hannover in Germany – Thermaltake has made it onto the list of winners five times. 




“With products from categories that focused on computers, consumer electronics and mobile phones, the overall tendency goes toward simplifying and slimming down, which unfortunately also leads to uniformity. In doing so, it becomes more difficult to recognize differences in design. Whoever has the courage to step outside of the box gains advantages and is rewarded with visibility.” Says Prof. Fritz Frenkler, the jury chairman of 2014 iF Design Award. Hence, with the creative design and innovative technology of the SYBARIS Hybrid Headset, Tt eSPORTS conquered the heart of the jury successfully. This prize was awarded for the 5th time, Thermaltake Group once again showing its specific prospective vision for the IT and gaming industry with its appealing brand.
