Pros Perfect for just about all applications, fantastic sound, weight NOT an issue if you don't wear them for 147 hours straight.
Cons The cord could be a couple of feet longer.
Summary I've had these for well over a year now, and have had no issues whatsoever with them. PAINLESS setup, just plug the optical cable into your PS3, XBXOX, etc and go. Bought a second pair to watch movies with the wife while the baby is asleep and we couldn't be happier with them. Not sure how anyone could complain about the weight of them, that's kind of surprising, and makes me think that someone may need to get a bit of exercise and not sit on the couch all day and night playing games... Just a thought.
In any case, these were definitely a great purchase, and when/if they go bad I'll be buying a replacement from Tritton because my experience so far has been nothing but positive.
Pros Sound quality
PC and console compatible
High quality voice chat with independent voice and game volume controls
5.1 simulated Dolby Pro-Logic Surround Sound
Cons Sub-par cables
The voice chat cable for 360 is terrible, solved by purchasing a new one, which is cheap but inconvenient
Very short optical cable included, again, had another one so no biggy
Summary I love these headphones. They're great for gaming, but also for music among other things. Really gives movies a cinematic quality. Purchased these for 360 and PC gaming, not only for the gaming advantages they present, but also so that I wouldn't wake up my family in neighboring rooms of my house during late nights. These are basically Astro headsets with everything but the high price tag. I would HIGHLY recommend these to anyone in the market for good, high quality headphones with voice compatibility, surround sound, and a price that won't break the bank. Owned the AX360s before this, and am now a proud owner of these AX720s.
Pros Fanatastic sound. Lightweight, Comfortable phones.
Cons none so far
Summary I own PS3, XBox360, and PC Games and bought these so not to wake up people when late night gaming and as a replacement to the crappy 360 headset. I've only used these on xbox 360 so far.
The surround sound is excellent eg I can hear people sneaking up behind me in BFBC2. In some online reviews there's comments about the AX720's not having a good bass sound but I haven't found that at all eg BFBC2 sounds like a full raging battlefield with deep exposion sounds. These headsets are light and very comfortable. I have no discomfort from wearing them for long sessions.
Don't be put off by all the wires. The instructions are easy enough to follow and there's lots of youtube clips on setting them up if you need any more help. Main point is that an XBox 360 may need an optical adaptor, unlike the PS3 which has optical out built in, and if you're in Oz you'll need a power convertor ($12).
The mic is nice and sturdy. The clarity of other people talking on online isfine and the adjustable volume control between mic and game sounds is easy to access.
Pros Dolby Digital 5.1 is very crisp and clear and each channel can be uniquely heard. Wasn't a believer until my first night of Battlefield Bad Company 2. Was able to isolate where players were shooting from easily in shooter games.
Cons The mic seems to pop a bit if you move abruptly or wiggle the connection akwardly. The optical cable provided is short and of low quality, but provides it function if all devices are within close proximity.
Summary If open surround sound is not an option for you when you game, these headphones will provide the punch you need. The Dolby Digital 5.1 is very crisp and clear and each channel can be uniquely heard. Personally, I felt the low frequency sounds were effective as well. If you are a gaming dad that has to choose your gaming times carefully, the AX720 will not disappoint.
"Amazing Value"on by godfrey1975
Pros Sound is crystal clear
Cons Headset takes getting used to
Summary I had Intended to buy the AXpro model from Tritton But found it backordered at Best Buy so I decided to down grade to this model. After minimal setup I was amazed to find the clarity and response. I had difficulty for the first hour or so adjusting not only to hearing voice chat in both ears but the amazing surrond sound these provided. I game primarily at night when my wife and kids are asleep and theese afford me the oppurtunity to enjoy full surrond and high volume late into the night something I was only able to do when the house was empty. I love the in-line adjustments for volume. The wires are worth the hassle as the sound and immersion is awesome I highly recomend these to anybody lokking for a solid solution for gaming where noise is a consideration.
