Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Excellent headset when first bought in february but after 3 months the mic stopped working. After a bit of research on the web i found out that its a very common fault. Got 1st class customer service from amazon when i contacted them on a saturday morning they sent me a new headset which was received 2 days later. If you buy some keep your receipt just in case they develop a fault.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING¬¬ 10 July 2009
Bought these about a week ago for xbox live gaming. And I can honestly say they are amazing. The sound quality in 5.1 is brilliant even when chatting with your friends the sound is crisp. The sound you can adjust via the remote which is cool. The only thing I don't like about it is it uses two adapters. Otherwise excellent headphones. BUY THEM!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best headset I've ever used 16 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, first I've got to admit, before I got this product, I've only ever used standard stereo headsets, so in terms of judging the quality of true high-end headsets, I don't have enough experience. []
It does work exactly as advertised. To keep this short and sweet, I'll only mention a few points not specificly mentioned in the product description.
1) This can play normal stereo sound in 2 channel mode, or it can process a 2 channel audio track into surround sound with Dolby Pro Logic II.
2) To play in full Dolby Digital 5.1 mode, you must select the Dolby Digital audio track on a DVD or sound file. Otherwise, your computer will just output in 2 channel mode.
3) To connect to a PC, you will need to use the optical cable included in the package. You can't connect to the decoder box with analog cables: the analog ports on the box are Analog OUT, not Analog IN.
4) To connect to an Xbox 360, you will need an Optical RCA adaptor, and use that to connect to the decoder box. There's nothing else needed if connecting to a PS3, just go into Audio Settings and select Audio Output going through the Optical port.
5) There are two D-Sub connectors for headsets, so if you and a friend have Tritton AXPro headsets, you can enjoy 5.1 surround sound on both headsets.
6) The decoder box can only process either standard 2 channel audio or 5.1 Dolby Digital. It cannot process DTS audio, its all Dolby. Also, if you are playing a Blu-ray and select the Dolby True HD audio track, it will be compressed back down to "standard definition" Dolby Digital 5.1 once the signal hits the decoder box.
7) The Xbox Live chat connector that comes with this headset will only work with an Xbox controller if there's no Chatpad, it won't plug in otherwise.

Unfortunately my first pair of these Tritton AX Pro's from Amazon were literally DOA, as the power adapter was faulty, however Amazon as always, responded quickly and sent me an advance replacement which worked just fine.

The headphones are quite large but comfortable, and can be worn for long periods, sound quality is very good indeed. One can get true dolby 5.1 sound which really does make a difference in games, I'm currently playing COD Black Ops and you really can tell where specific sounds are coming from.

Music files such as MP3 ect. are stereo, but can be enhanced if one wishes by using the Pro-Logic options, one can also add delay/effects between various speakers in the h/phones. DVD Films or Blurays are played back in true dolby 5.1. Remember Pro-Logic is a simulated virtual surround sound effect, the genuine 5.1 dolby really comes into it's own within games, or when playing DVD films ect.

One observation I did make was that the first set of headphones from Amazon had been sourced from a company called Mad-Catz, while the second replacement set had a label on stating they were made in China under licence. Otherwise both units were almost exactly the same, the manual was a little better on the Chinese made second set, and the rear artwork on the boxes slightly different.
However, I did notice that the set from Madcatz seem to have a much more flexible cable, otherwise they were identical, and the sound quality from both exactly the same to my ears.

Only one power supply adapter is used, as they now use a splitter near the end of the cable to give you the 2 required 9v supplies, which is a little neater than earlier models which came with 2 power adapters.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME SOUND 17 Jan 2009
By N. John
After much debating i decided to buy these babies and was not dissapointed. To hear 5.1 sound from headphones is a beautiful thing, the detail especially on games is fantastic and brings a new dimension too gaming. Ok they are quite expensive but no more expensive than most 5.1 regular sound systems. Bad points there are two ac adaptors to plug in but it didn't put me off.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'M LOVING THIS! 16 Sep 2009
Wow. What a headset!

You certainly get your £140 worth of cables! Despite the amount of cables setup was easy - with sections in the instructions for 360, PS3 and PC.

The sound quality is crisp with the surround sound adding a lot to already amazing games! You can control each speaker (there's 4 of them) invidually...making the rear speakers louder than the front etc. This is easy to as this can be done on the clip and instead of numeric volume levels (such as volume: 20) it uses colours, Red for Max, Green for min and as you adjust each or all of the speakers the colours fade...!

The microphone clips on easy and it has all of the important features such as mute and volume control. I've often found that some headsets are a bit quiet and Ive had to mute the TV to understand what other people are saying...this is clear and crisp.

It does require two eletrical make sure you have space and one optical and USb port (for PS3).

In all a fantastic product...I can't get enough and I never tire from the crisp sounds!

One warning though the Sub really really vibrates your head!!! I've had to take regualr breaks to stop my head from exploding lol
