4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The headsets Dolby 5.1 surround sound is amazing for games, since you can change the volume level to our liking. The fact that it covers your entire ear is another great part, also with the adjustable mic, it helps put it right where you need it.

Cons: The mic cord is extremely thin and is easily broken. Mine broke after a few months of use.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth the money

Pros: Ok, once you are able to get your volume levels balanced - when they were working.

Cons: * poor microphone design
* low quality headphones
* no separate voice channel; part of center channel, and so gets drowned out quickly on EVERY game
* poor customer support; has not responded to any support requests outside of "Live Support" which is offline 99/100 times

Other Thoughts: I was really excited to get this product, and was quickly relieved of that feeling. After about 1 month of usage, the microphone died. Wire broke because the extension cable pulls down on the back of it. Replaced mic, 2 days later, the extension fails. Received replacement, and both died. Support's solution: Zip tie it up to the main headphone wire. Good solution for wires, obviously. 2 weeks later, the center channel gave a loud "pop" in both headphones. No center channel, no voice. Support has ignored my support tickets and live support is never "Live". For an item of this price, you should expect more than about 1-2 months of life, and there should be some kind of customer support behind it.

I will not deal with Tritton again for any reason. If they ever happen to take care of my problem, I will be selling this product as is, just like you should do with junk. Glad I didn't use them more, they probably would have melted.

3 out of 5 eggsI have had this for a long time.

Pros: Great sound. Output to a secondary sound device (like my 5.1 Logitech sound system). Great for decoding dolby digital dvd's when you use the optical out on a computer. They still work after 3 years (see below).

Cons: I used this headset for a computer, and comes with lots of quirks. To use the mic along with the digital box, you can't use the built in jack, you have to buy an external cable to plug it into your PC (or just use another mic like I did). With gaming, it is typically better to just use the adapter it comes with to hook it via 4 3.5mm audio cables to your computer.

Dolby Digital doesn't work with most video acceleration programs like VLC or WMPC. Annoying to change out cables for gaming and dvd watching.

I have had my headset for about 3 years, and in that time both earcups have broken. They broke where the cups slide out to extend for larger heads. I have made them tolerable to wear by smothering the broken areas with hot glue, but that still doesn't fix them from bending.

The little blue decoder box they give you gets hot. I tried to put some sticky Velcro on the box to mount it to the underside of my computer desk, but it gets so hot that it melts the glue of the Velcro.

Other Thoughts: The next set of headphones I am planning on getting for my computer will definitely have a USB adapter. I might still buy a Tritton, it was a good headset, just to many quirks for the price. They have another version of the headset as a USB one though, but not when I bought this one.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but not great

Pros: Very comfortable, even for long periods of time, movable mic is great (I am not sure why all headphones don't have this). Sound is good. The headphones themselves are very durable.

Cons: I would have expected a lot better for the price. I did buy them on sale, but even then I wish they were better. The copper wireing on the mic is becoming expossed, and the foam part of the headphones has fallen off before. The headphones claim to have a integrated rumble effect, but this is unoticable. If they made the sound a bit better (I have a SB X-Fi soundcard even) better, and improved (added?) the rumble effect, these would be GREAT.

Other Thoughts: I am a professional gamer, and actively participate in ESL and touraments. Games such as Crysis require good sound, and while these headphones deliever, their is something lacking. The mic very good for my TS and ventrillo.

3 out of 5 eggsNot for the Price

Pros: They do have nice features like Digital Input, External Amp,
eight speaker Surround sound, Long cord and are Comfortable.
I bought these to hook to my Xbox and PC. The digital mode switch is nice lets me hook my Xbox up via optical and PC Coaxial(digital).

Cons: The bad things about these is the cord on them is thin and will wear quickly if you move around allot. Also You can't help but notice that the headband is a somewhat thin plastic that feels like it might break if you ever accidentally drop them. The sound from them is fair but for the price you would expect to have richer sound. You will notice that they will crackle on the highs, base isn't very good(Its there just doesn't sound as clean) and there is a consistent pink noise in them "most people will probably not even notice it unless you stop and listen".

Other Thoughts: For fun and games these are great headphones and most people will enjoy them. They do have a higher price tag but have lots of features to help help make up for it. Hope my review helps you.

P.S. Optical Cable included is junk. Might want to buy one when you buy these unless you plan to use Coax.

4 out of 5 eggsLove them!

Pros: Awesome for gaming on X-box! They do produce a little digital audio buzz, but I haven't fully explored the DSP functions yet. I'm sure that I can remove most of the hiss, but for right out of the box they sound great. They are a little heavy, not like my AXPs that I use on the PC. Padded for comfort and make long sessions easy to endure. Audio is the winner with these, very detailed and rich. Buzz is only noticeable when no sound is present.

Cons: Aside from being a little heavy, is the cord. I could have gone with an IR set but you have to maintain a line of sight for those, so separation drop outs occur with those systems. The cord is long enough to give ample play space so you not glued to the monitor/TV. The hand control is hard to read as the letters have no color to set off what is what, my reason for 4 stars. Lastly, voice works very well for VOX, except some folks sound like chipmunks when talking, you sound fine though. Again, that may be a DSP setting.

Other Thoughts: The mic is great, no probs so far, but I dislike the mount clip. Kinda cheesy. Why they did it this way is odd considering how Tritton did it with the AXP version for PC. Still, overall a solid headset for gaming that sounds really great when you consider the X-box alternative headset.

3 out of 5 eggsSecond look, not so good

Pros: Second review, this time I have some important things I've learned to share. I didn't notice before because I was not using the box unit that comes with it (I had it on a computer with the multi-plug adapter).

Cons: Every time the audio single refreshes the volume resets to max volume.

Say you're using your computer, and decide to start up your PS3. You turn the PS3 on, and switch the ax360 box from coax in to optical in. Suddenly, you hear your PS3 start up at max volume. Once you change to volume setting on the box at all, it will jump back to how it was before. So now you decide to start a game up on your PS3. Somewhere along the line of that game starting up, the ax360 box has decided it's going to play this new audio signal at 100%. "!@#$", you exclaim, as you touch the volume up or down button once, to re-set it back to what it was set at.

This get's EXTREMELY annoying if you're doing something that would cause it to jump up a lot, like trying out game demos.

Maybe this is just a PS3 thing, but be warned.

Other Thoughts: The optical cable that comes with it is junk. All the reviews saying the sound quality isn't so great and that there is noticeable crackling and beeping at low volume, that's the optical cable.

I bought a $27 monster cable replacement, and it's noticeably much better.

------

FYI, the microphone will not work with a PS3. There's a video on youtube (search ax360 ps3) showing a mac product that will make it work, but so long as your dropping the big bucks for a mac accessory, you might as well just get the PS3 Camera that has a Microphone aray built in and use that as a mic.

------

I was really liking this thing until I got a PS3. Still, once you're in-game and you've fixed to volume, it's nice.

1 out of 5 eggsFell apart on me.

Pros: Decent sound

Cons: First time I put them on the left earmuff fell off. I put it back on, but then the right one fell off! I ended up taping them on, which sometimes gets stuck in my hair. The mic is now broken because of poor wiring. The cord from the plug on my left earpiece to my mic got flimsy and broke so the wire is sticking out. Even the glue holding the foam underneath the earmuffs is breaking. I've used these for less than 3 months, gently.

Just terrible.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy these.
