Year After Review: Tritton Ax 720

Posted: January 9, 2012 in Gadgets

Tritton Ax 720 Gaming Headset Review.
After a year on the shelves at game stores, the Tritton Ax 720 Headset is still one of the best headsets on the market. The Tritton Headset will run you a nice price of 120 dollars in stores. The first unique feature about the Tritons’ is that they work across all major platforms (Xbox360, PS3, PC). As well as listen to in game sounds and chat you can also use them to simply watch a movie or music in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound.
The entire package includes the decoder box (mix amp), detachable microphone, optical cable, power plug, volume controller and pc connector. Setup of the device is pretty straight forward, but it can leave you with an array of wires running across the floor. The headset does come with an instruction book to make setup a lot easier.
The headset at a glance is substantially bulky. They are size adjustable to fit all head types. I did find the headphones comfortable to wear after long periods of intense gaming despite the bulkiness. A downside of the headset is they aren’t very flexible and may crack with minor pressure. I have actually cracked one of my headphones cups, but have reinforced it with electrical tape. They are made out of a hard plastic that does not offer much movement.
I have found sound quality of the headset to be very crisp, picking out the most indistinguishable noises while in game play. Listening to teammates or my fellow party chat member was also enjoyable for the most part with some quality decrease. While talking on the headset I have found that people can hear me clearly despite not speaking loudly. Yelling into the microphone was not needed.
The headset has proven to be one of the best despite their being a year old. They are offered at a reasonable price and should be considered when look for a new gaming headset.
