Why can't life be in Dolgy Digital?,
This review is from: Call of Duty Black OPS ProGaming AX720 Headset (PS3/Xbox 360) (Accessory)
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. I honestly couldn't praise it highly enough, the 5.1 sound really gives you an edge when you're playing your games and you can hear things you would never have picked up on before unless you were sitting on top of your TV. Wearing the headset is so immersive that taking them off is like a thump back down to Earth.
There is next to no sound bleed either and the microphone is extremely high quality.
I couldn't praise this headset higher if i tried. Even if you're not a Call of Duty fan and just love something like Killzone, Halo or Battlefield, try these out! You honestly would not regret it.
