4.0 out of 5 stars
Great Sound, Great Design... Good Comfort., 1 Nov. 2013
Bought this headset not too long ago and I have to say I am very impressed, a definite 5 star headset if it wasn't for one thing (which I'll get to shortly).
Having had 3 successive Turtle Beach XL1 all break to the same wiring issue, where the left earphone would completely cut out, I decided to move on to something new. In all honesty, the sound of the Tritton itself is of very good quality, but just misses out in the bass quality in comparison to the XL1, but still holds itself pretty well! It provides great quality surround sound as you can really pinpoint in on where certain sounds are coming from, whether it be the quiet plodding of footsteps in Call of Duty or the subtle groans of zombies in Minecraft, it is quite phenomenal. However at times I found it to be a little too much, as sound seemed to play solely in one ear of the headset if it was immediately left (or right) which felt rather uncomfortable, however such occasions are pretty rare. The design too, I find to be very stylish and a lot better than that of turtle beach, with the orange on black giving a very striking, contemporary scheme. However the one big flaw I have with this product is the level of comfort. Being a relatively serious gamer (I play everyday for medial stretches of time) I found that over time the earpieces would sit a little too heavily on the ear and become rather uncomfortable and even painful. Now this may just be a sign I should be gaming a little bit less (!) or just user specific, but in all truth it's a polluting tarnish on an otherwise grassy meadow of excellence in product design. Nevertheless, still strongly recommended.
Ease of Use: 8/10 (a few wires to deal with, nothing too tricky)
Value for Money: 7/10
