5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed 21 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Received today and up and running within a very short space of time. I don't understand why people say 'there's too many wires'. You have:

1 usb connector from PS3 to the decoder (needed for the mic to work)
1 optical link from PS3 to decoder (this is for your surround sound)
1 power lead to decoder
1 headphone wire to decoder

Seems reasonable to me...although I do hate wires!

Very very quick to setup and no instructions required, which is just as well as they are a bit sparse.

Very nicely packed and well designed COD case which if your headset is packed in after use, will keep it nice and safe.

Impressive audio quality and the mic is superb. The handy mic on/off switch on the inline control a necessity if you're interrupted by someone that wants a chat (unfortunately too many players out there neglect to turn their mics off when having a chat but that's another story!)

The enclosed earpads fit nice and snug, ensuring external distractions are kept to a minimum. Even after a few hours of wearing, my ears weren't aching which I would normally get with an earpiece. It's nice to get surround sound and use the mic. It's a much better experience than having the audio out of the speakers with a mic earpiece in one ear, as I find I don't miss as much audio detail as before (such as an enemy reloading a magazine nearby or sneaking around me).

From a PS3 perspective, the only thing you might need to do is turn off DTS option (within PS3 audio settings) which is the only useful thing I found in the instructions. Ensure you change your output options on the PS3 so the mic goes out over the USB device, or your mic will not work (not in the instructions).

5.0 out of 5 stars Why can't life be in Dolgy Digital? 18 Sep 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing video games now for over 20 years, FPS games more so for half of that, and in that time i've never bought a headset before. Previously i have had the standard out of the box ones that come with the Xbox 360, but never have i spent ludicrous amounts on one. That was until now.

2 days ago, a friend of mine showed me a link for this headset on Amazon, marked down to 70 from 150. I'd been searching for a headset for some time and have heard many great things about the Tritton brand, but i knew that in order to get the best ones around, i would have to spend big bucks. Fortunately, Amazon are throwing away money and after a bit of hesitation on my part, i parted with my cash and awaited my new toy.

A package arrived this afternoon for me, a massive box from a courier and to my surprise it was the headset. Upon opening it, i'm greeted by what i can only describe as one of the nicest presentation pieces i've ever seen. The quality of the box the headset comes in is absolutely top class, very nice indeed. I open the box and to my surprise, there's a carry case! After reading back the description of the product on Amazon again, it did say it came with it, but it must have escaped me.

Packed neatly inside was the headset, complete with 2 lots of ear covers (one leather and one soft cotton like material), a few cables, a decoder box and of course the headset itself.

Set-up was relatively easy, if you can't work out how to set this thing up then you probably shouldn't be allowed to wear socks, let alone own electronic equipment. After plugging it all in and a quick read in the guide book on what each button and light represents on the decoder, i started up my console and gave them a whirl.

The quality of the sound is incredible.

If like me you like to enjoy the full on surround sound experience but as soon as the volume is increased get a nagging "turn it down, you'll wake the kids!" reminder then this is an ideal product.

Easy to set up and super sound quality it really adds to the gaming experience, picking up on all of the sounds of the gameplay environment. There is a notable improvement on sound quality compared to the cheaper headphones you can get and this also helps if playing online.

Well worth the money......!

4.0 out of 5 stars early days 1 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
i will update this review later but so far.
it all looks very nice, nice box, nice case, and it plays beautifully in the ps3[better than my turtle beach]
only downside [at present] is that i cant connect the optical output to the xbox if i use the hdmi cable!
it can be fitted to the av cable but then i lose a perfect picture but gain perfect sound ,[call me fussy but for the money i just paid i expect both]
it should be ok if you have the new slim xbox, but my 'old' elite is less than 12 months old, and i dont want to change it yet.
i am still searching for a solution to this problem, but if you only have a fat xbox and like playing in hdmi then i would
keep hold of your cash until you are certain.
i havnt worked out if the virtual 5.1 is as good as true 5.1 on the gaming front [true 5.1 is supposed to be better and triton sell them cheaper if you don't care about the black ops colour and logo [sadly i do]
the truth will be told if im top of the leaderboards at call of duty next week lol.

update!
fat xbox connection sorted
easy way.....my tv is only 6 months old, so has an optical output at the rear ..job done [i never knew it was there, its under a plastic bung. i had never heard of optical cables till i bought these headphones]
or... you can buy a xbox cable for 50 dollars [us forum]
or... cut down the av plug plastic [prize it off with a screwdriver]remove the wires and use the optical part and still fit the hdmi lead in [ type in optical/hdmi hack]
hope this helps

update on the update
to get the 5.1 dolby i had to plug the optical lead into the ps3 [not the tv]
trouble is when i swop playing the ps3 and put the xbox on i have to start transfering all the leads over
anyone any sugestions [other than buying another set]?
