As a long-time gamer, I have always found that the music and sound effects truly set the game’s tone. The problem there is that to hear the sound effectively, you generally end up with your neighbors calling the police or your parents yelling at you to “turn that noise off!” The solution is, of course, to use either ear buds or headsets. But they generally sound tinny and weak no matter how loud you crank up the volume, making them rather pointless. The way to circumvent that is, of course, to find and buy a top gaming headset. This, however, may be easier said than done!
You could, for example, run out to any “tech” shop of your choice and stand around trying on various headset makes and models to find just the right gaming headset amongst all of its peers. You could go to site after site and research all of them and just hope you get lucky. You could even tell Grandma that you want a headset for Christmas and keep your fingers crossed.
Face it; with the plethora of top gaming headsets out there, finding just the right and perfect one is almost impossible. After all, if they all claim to be top, how can the consumer really tell? In Tritton’s case, however, the words “top gaming headset” take on a whole new meaning. The Tritton AX 720 Precision Digital Gaming Headset has been designed specifically for use with the Xbox® and PS3® gaming systems, and Dolby Digital and Dolby Headphone technology and, because of this; it has set new benchmark standards in 2-channel surround sound headsets. Additionally, although designed primarily for gaming consoles, these headsets will work with virtually any audio/video device that has a digital or optical port, a USB connection or even a video card with stereo input/output. This includes pretty much anything from your computer to your stereo to your iPhone!
So what? It works with everything? Is that any reason to claim this headset is THE top gaming headset out there? Well, no, not really. What does make it the best is the true 5.1 Dolby Digital audio, the eight precision speakers hiding inside those two ear cups and, lastly, the Dolby Digital decoder. All these work towards creating a 3D audio environment that will be the envy of all of your gaming buddies! In fact, you can brag all about it to them using the detachable microphone and then listen to their every whimper! Adding yet more to your gaming experience, it’s easy and convenient in-line audio controller features separate game and voice volume controls. These all add up to give you total control of the audio component of your gaming experience.
Despite all this, and although its quality is well beyond professional grade, its price falls on the “Wow, an average person can afford it!” side of the coin. On the whole I would have to say that the Tritton AX definitely lives up to its hype as the top gaming headset out there today! Listen to your games and music your way, and enjoy them one hundred times more!
