5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile Beasts 20 Jan. 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This headset is just brilliant. I use them connected to my PS3 via the optical cable which is supplied with the headset.

Setting them up to the PS3 was a breeze, no problems at all and they were un-boxed and ready to go within minutes. The sound quality is incredible, "sound-whoring" is a doddle with these things, you can hear locations of enemies which will stop you getting killed from behind on game such as Black Ops.

They feel VERY sturdy, you get what you pay for, I have had some Turtle Beach models in my possession and these's feel far well made, however they don't feel brittle. The cable length is very long, but it does make them accessible from pretty much anywhere in your room. 12.5 feet I think is the length.

I use these for all game types, from Call of Duty to FIFA, the sound is equally impressive. 5.1 audio REALLY makes a difference if you are used to standard TV speakers. I can't play without them any more. I also use them for listening to music, the sound over different genres is impressive, from heavy metal to hip hop, they deliver in mid range and top end volumes without distortion. Bass is ample, I find some headphones are bass-orientated but these deliver the right amount.

I can't find any negatives at the moment, I've had them for about 2 weeks.

Another bonus is they look awesome as well, different from the boring black headsets!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Piece of Kit 16 Sept. 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I initially balked at the thought of spending a large amount of money on a set of headphones, but a particularly flush week meant I took the plunge and bought these AX720 headphones and it has turned out to be one of the best purchases I have ever made.

It was a breeze to set-up thanks to all the cables needed being included in the box and the manual being easy to follow. I do recommend though that if you own both PS3 and 360 like myself, buy a cheap optical cable splitter so both consoles can connect to the Tritton receiver and you won't have to swap the cables over each time you want to play the other console.

The audio that comes out of the headphones literally left me jaw-dropped. The first game I tried was the new Deus Ex and initially I had to take the headphones off to check that there was no sound coming from my TV speakers because the sound being pumped into my ears was so clear and loud and wide it literally felt like the entire room was filled with the sound of the game. The surround sound is simply amazing. Audio envelopes you completely and peripheral noises can be heard clearly within the game space. I have never been so immersed within games, and as such I have returned to some of the older games in my collection just so I can experience them anew with this added dimension of depth and immersion.

I should also like to add just how brilliant these headphones are for blu-ray movies. Like my other-half said, its like sitting in your own private cinema. Audio again is crystal clear with some wonderful, deep bass.

Having experienced surround sound like never before with these headphones, it seems unlikely I could ever go back to regular speakers. I cannot recommend these things enough!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gaming never sounded better! 13 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought these headphone instead of the Turtle Beach set that had been originally recommended to me. I almost went that bit extra and bought the 5.1 set but then changed my mind and settled on the AX720's. They arrive in a very large package which looks a little ostentatious. In the pack you have a complete set of connectors and converters so that they can be used on a none optical output based device.

Setting them up was easy. Simply plug in the power supply, plug in the optical cable (from a PS3 in my case and a 360), switch off the DTS support (PS3 only), and away you go. The sound quality is very good and I was able to pick up on subtle effects which instantly put a whole new veneer of immersion to games. I played through Mass Effect 2, Bulletstorm, and Killzone 3 using them and dialogue was clear, the soundtracks were vast, and the effects strident. I also watched season three of Eureka (DVD), Avatar (Bluray), and a number of other films (mostly Bluray) and all the soundscapes were reproduced brilliantly. Audio placement is very good and sound reproduction is stunning. Volume can be controlled on via the small in line control unit.

The built in mic can get in the way of drinking or eating but can be removed when not in use. It is very sensitive and you have control over it's volume and also the option to switch it on or off via the inline control unit. On the PS3 you have to attach a USB lead to the console for the mic to work. If you have a model with only two USB ports I would recommend getting a powered USB hub. This way the PS3 doesn't need to be switched on to recharge the controllers. I use a 10 port hub myself.

The earphones are more than comfortable enough to wear for long periods and do a very good job of blocking out background noise.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality... 6 Feb. 2013
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Well where should i start?
Sound quality:
Sound quality is very good, hit the low, mid and high notes on all levels very well. the only problem is that the unit itself I personally think has the bass setted up a lot more overwhelming than anything else, so on BLOPS 2 an explosion almost just takes over every other sound. This can be a problem or a good thing if you like the overwhelming bass however there is no adjustment to this unfortunately, so it means that the user would bascially have to "deal" with it. in addtion for £95 headsets I had expected atleast some sort of software to adjust sounds of even some sort of profiling system for different set-ups.

The unit has a decoder box, which is basically powered up by a usb port and an optical input which in turn you plug your headsets into. If connnecting by PC then the USB is all you need as the device registers itself as a headset so works fine just on usb in addition, the in-line controller allows for game volume and chat volume controls with also SVM so you can hear yourself, helps alot if you breathe down the mic or speaking too loudly above everyone else. Also the box has volume adjustments on/off siwtch and also you can toggle between the modes, Dolby surround sound, movie mode and dolby surround sound off which is a nice extra but doesn't really sound too different when its all off or on in my opinion. The headset has a great length of cable from decoder box to the headset, so that always a given plus if you have a set up quite far away or if you want to tidy your cables away then theres always more than plenty of cable length, i can't stress how many times that a good headset with no length of the cable can be a hindrance.
