5.0 out of 5 stars Best headset I've bought, 19 July 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tritton AX Pro: Precision Gaming Headset with Dolby 5.1 True Surround Sound (PS3/Xbox 360/PC/Mac) (Accessory)
The surround sound in this headset is really very very good. In FPS games you can pinpoint where the enemy are, and how high or low they are eg upstairs or down. I have the Rear and Bass levels higher than the other 2 settings - Centre and Front, it's just my preference and you'll find yours if you have this. Turning the bass up, you can really feel the heavyness and deepness in a bass heavy game or film, and it enhances the atmosphere tenfold. If you're coming to this headset from a Turtle Beach, firstly, great choice, you won't regret it, and secondly, it takes a little bit of getting used to to begin with. Make sure you choose the right volume settings for yourself first before jumping into a film or game proper, or you could either blast your ears off for the volume being too high, or keep getting stabbed in the back in a game because you can't hear them sneaking up behind you. My personal settings are, front = dark blue, rear = light blue, centre = dark blue, bass = light blue. Read up on the settings if you don't understand that, but it correlates to the volume for each setting on the headset.

The build quality is ASTOUNDING. This will not be breaking easily. Previously my Turtle Beach PX21 headset snapped after I just took it off normally. With this headset, that's no problem at all because it'll never happen. It's very sturdy and hardly moves at all. Mic quality is also very good, using it on PS3 with the voice changer you can hear yourself talk and it's nice and clear and easily understandable. It clips in, and you can take it out and twist it around to a different angle, it's a unique mic. Also the newer version of this headset has a breakaway cable, so if you're dying to go to the toilet but you want your headset left on, you mad man, then simply pull the connected supplied wire apart and you can go and do your thing.

There might well be better headsets than this, but they're more expensive and I doubt the sound quality will be a massive step up. The only other pair people might recommend over this is an Astro A40. They come with a mixamp, but you might be spending upwards of £210 on it, without the mixamp for pure surround sound it's about £190. This headset is the better choice in my opinion.
