Tritton AXPro 5.1 Headset


Some time ago we reviewed Tritton's quality headset, the AX51 5.1 Headset.  At that point I was thoroughly impressed with the set, so much so in fact, I took them to our last local party LanOC V.3.   I decided that even with the power brick as an...

At this point, I think it would be futile to continue to berate Tritton for the two power adapters.  When you throw down $180 for a headset, you know what you're getting into.  Obviously you don't need a headset that's all about portability if you are...

Tritton AX51 Gaming Headset (TRIAI-712)


Back in Sept of 07 I had a chance to look at Tritton's USB AXPC headset. Today we are going to be taking a look at the AX51's which are a true 5.1 surround sound headset. The AXPC's performed really well for my liking, and have been in use since back...

True 5.1 Surround Sound ; Looks Awesome ; Portable - Don't forget the power supply ; Sound greats, although more bass is needed ; Durable

Volumes change easily if bumped ; Needs more pressure to hold them in place better

Finding the right headset for your gaming needs is a rather tough task. Just think how hard it would be to create the right headset for the majority of gamers. Each person has their own likes and dislikes about headsets. Finding one with the right...

Tritton AX Pro 5.1 Headset


Discrete 5.1 surround sound effects are becoming more popular for all types of gaming platforms - and to take advantage of the latest sound effects you will need either a 5.1 surround sound set of speakers, or a set of 5.1 compatible headphones. The...

Excellent surround sound reproduction, very versatile for PC/console gaming and movie watching, comfortable

Tedious setup and configuration, $160 USD price may be too high for some, bass and rear-surround effects are occasionally lacking, illumination cannot be turned off easily

Aside from the few minor drawbacks that I mentioned previously, the difficult setup is really the only major sticking point. Since I expect that most of the users who will be considering buying this headset will be tech-savvy, this is probably not a...

Tritton AX51 Headset


Quality audio, despite the bemoaning of many, has proven time and again to be subjective to the listener.  This allows for a wide base for competition within the industry, and serves to cause confusion among the average consumer.  For instance, a...

Gah. That power lump, it really hurts in all the wrong places.  Still, I have to give Tritton credit for this headset. Its comfortable, sounds great with music, does directional 5.1 like a champ, and has that convenient inline audio controller. The mic...

Great headset


I have owned turtle beach and razor headsets in the past. The dog ate the turtle beach set and the razor's broke, one of the ear cups just snapped off one day. i am fairly hard on all my equipment and the fact that these still work, and work rather...

I have been using this headset for well over a year now and it has worked very good. It has outlasted many other previous headsets that i have owned. If you get them adjusted right and have a good sound card you can hear where everyone is on the...

The mic swivel point is easy to break. Mine is broke but it has not effected anything yet and the mic stays in place. There is a loose screw or something inside my right ear cup. if i move my head fast i can hear it rattle around. They dont breath that...

Powering off the Headset


TrojanMan, if this headset is anything like the Tritton AXPro, which I'm assuming it is because they're identical, you power them off by holding down the volume swith *the mute button* and holding down one of the channel switches. Hold them down for at...

Sounds Great with NO UNPLUGGING


To all of the people on here with problems with the wiring...I've had these for 9 months now(bought last summer) and I have had no problems with the wiring. I don't use the mic that often tbh. I do NOT plug and unlpug the darn headphones. If there...

Great Sound Quality ; Fairly accurate surround for a pair of headphones ; Bought on Sale not on newegg ; Currently have my xbox sound running to my PC and out to the headphones which sounds GREAT when playing COD. (I know, why didn't I buy the PC...

The cord might be too long. Even when I tie it up with the hand little velcro thingy it still occasionally gets caught up on stuff when i move around, but thats kinda expected with a wired set of headphones ; Also, I recommend springing for a sound...

Good, but some design mistakes.


Everything is good but after skimming new egg it looks like there are other decent choices in a similar price range.

Excellent surround sound quality ; Excellent mic sound qaulity ; Not USB, it actually plugs into Creative sound cards

Has a serious design flaw. There is no way to turn off the headphones without either unplugging the power cord (hard to reach in my case) or separating the headphones from the long cord that connects them to the PC. This connection has a whole bunch of...

Not Worth The $$$$


This was a waste of money, i could get this quality headset for 20$ if i tried.

The sound is very good, the cord is very long, and the headset itself is extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods of time

The microphone broke on the second week. I started hearing static even when the volume is fairly low, every once in a while the speakers will loudly crack when the cord is moved

Wouldn't buy again


If the unit functioned better out of the gate "surround-wise" without all the difficulty trying to get the sound placement correct; and I had had less problems with cable repeatedly pulling out from the controller with little force; and had the company...

Headset itself is fairly sturdy, comfortable for long periods of time, mic works okay and has a long cord

I never could not manage to get the surround "right" after far too much playing around. Had the unit for 1.5 years and the headset itself is in okay condition, but the cord is too easily pulled out of the controller. After too many times repairing it,...
