"Excellent product for gaming"4.5 starson by NickFuji
Pros: Great sound. Excellent gaming features. Easy set up. Very comfortable. Feels like cheating in COD4 cage matches.
Cons: There are lots of wires. Would like wireless. A little bulky.
Summary: First off, I am not an audio file. I am however a guy who would be hard pressed to spend $800.00 on a home theater headset. So I will concede that there are better sounding headsets on the market, but for the price these do sound great.
I bought them for use with my PS3. I was sick of people sneaking up from behind and stabbing me. Also, my wife was sick of hearing all the cars explode at 1am. If you play cage match in COD4, you can clearly hear your opponent running across the map in all directions. You can hear where a frag lands in and its proximity to you. You can feel the thud of the M60 in your head while you fire it off.
Hook up was EASY. Yes there are a lot of wires but any twelve year old can hook this thing up. The digital converter box has a bunch of buttons. For the most part you don't really need to touch them. The cord from the box to the headset is 12 feet long. For me this is plenty of cord to run from the tv, across the carpet, and up to my head without suspending the cord in the air for someone to trip over. Once you put this headset on the only control you might need is the control located on the headset end of the cable. This control can adjust total volume and channel volume. It can vary the volume of the other players mics which is very helpful. There is also a separate switch to toggle your own mic on and off.
The only time I have contacted Tritton was before I bought the AX pros to get some details so I can not speak about the product support. I have not had any quality issues. This headset has worked great since I bought it four months ago.
