The Tritton AX 180s offer fair audio quality and durability.

At the end of the day, many consumers are looking for a simple, no-nonsense headset to throw on their head and start their gaming. If that sounds like what you want to do, the Tritton AX 180s are a solid choice, and should do exactly what’s expected of...

Tritton AX180 Gaming Headphones Review


A great sounding messy headphones.

superb sound in music and games, great looks, compatibility with current consoles, good directional sense

can get messy with wires, USB dependent

The second major problem with the headphones is that it needs a USB power source. It shouldn’t be much of a problem with consoles since you would hardly use up all the slots, but if you plan to use it on the PC, it will gobble up one of your USB ports...

Tritton AX 180 - Review


Very recently we have reviewed a Tritton AX 720 and we loved it so much that we had to review the mini version of AX, AX 180. AX 180 is a gaming earphone set which has alot of potentials. Just like AX 720, AX 180 can be connected to the Playstation3,...

Simple to use ; Light weight ; Great sound ; Multiple compatibility ; Independent sound control

None that we could find ;

The AX 180 is a wonderful product for any gamer or entertainment nut out there. Having said that let me state that, while Alex is the main reviewer, I couldn't help but get my hands on this. After seeing the AX 720 product in action I had to try it out...

Tritton Technologies AX 180 Universal Gaming Headset


Everywhere you look, there's a gaming console set up next to your Big TV. Chances are you pipe the audio through the family home theater system or stereo system because ...

Impressive quality construction and design ; Full console support and PC compatible ; Very comfortable fit ; Break away Inline Controller ; Very good audio gaming quality ; Priced near $49.99 or less

2 days of console and PC testing got me in trouble with “The Boss

As for durability, the outside of the headset themselves are covered by a light, black rubber layer. That gives them a really nice quality feel not to mention, protects them a bit. I'm sure it also helps direct sound and limit distorted vibrations you...

Consumer review by:

Perfect midrange gaming headset.


Great headset for the price. Better durability than Turtle Beach. Looks nice and sounds better. The mic is easy to use and looks sleek. Easy to set up. Honestly, there aren't that many wires, and in any case the wires should be mostly out of sight.

Comfortable. Aesthetically pleasing. Good sound, nice bass. Worth the price

Can be tight for some. May be uncomfortable if used for long periods of time

Consumer review by:

Stereo headset with mic & multi-platform compatibility.


If you don't want to spend the money or can't afford a nice surround headphone set up this is a great alternative. Clear, clean sound and very comfortable. I highly recommend this headset as a less expensive alternative to the pricey surround headphones.

In their price point they have a very nice, detailed sound to them. You can use them with literally every current generation console and both pc and mac. They're also comfortable enough to wear for hours on end and have plenty of volume

WIRES!!! I hate the amount of wires needed especially when using it with xbox360 due to the wire having to go to the controller. Sound wise, there's a low volume hum/hiss which isn't noticeable during gameplay but is when at game menus

Consumer review by:

For the price of this headset, i would not recommend.


for this price i would recommend switching to another product such as the Turtle Beach headsets.

Clear audio with control of the chat volume and the game volume ; very durable, with detachable mic parts

not very comfortable for people with small- medium size heads ; cable that connects the volume dials to remote controller is very sensitive, if even brushed, will disconnect the mic, making you unable to talk with your friends ; wires often get tangled...

Consumer review by:



If you want to pay more then you can get better. But for the price I'd say they are the best there is. Customer support wasn't bad for me, and they were really comfortable.

They were really comfortable to me. When I played a lot of Modern Warfare 2 I could wear them for hours without even realizing I had them on. They didn't feel like they were that cheaply made or anything ; My dog chewed through my cord and after...

WAAAY overpriced!


Just purchased these headphones with high expectations. Sound is sub-par, in order to maximize their quality you need to reduce the bass they put out. Ive played Halo Reach on xbox live with them and the bass ruins the sound, many players mics are...
