5.0 out of 5 stars Good all around GAMING headset! January 11, 2010
By Chad
--I needed a nice headset for late night gaming. (As to not wake the neigbors, and what not) I searched for the best, which would probably be the Astro headset. However, the price, at almost $300 put me off abit. The tritton 720's, a nice quality headset for a nice price. I bought these for my PS3 only. The features:

1) Sturdy quality
2) Microphone, solid and bendable
3) comfort level is a 9 (headset is a little heavy) but not terrible, no neck fatigue, or head aches, even after long hours of game play, but I do get up to fix drink, rest room...etc.
4) Speaker volume, microphone volume/mute (both are seperately controlled), very nice...sometimes you wanna play with your buds, sometimes you want strangers to shut up. *flip the switch...all you got is game sound!
5) I find the controls and set up very easy to use and manage. Nothing is complicated or cumbersome. *note this is NOT a wireless headset. The wire is nice and long, got the voice control velcroed to the side of my Lazy-boy. Plenty of wire to not compromise my mobility. On a surpising note...I can actually hear other things going on in the house, phone ringing, doorbell, etc... I thought for sure I would be closed off to the world..NOT SO!
6) Head phones are very nice and comfy. Surrounds the ENTIRE ear! One bad note, it seems the padding comes off a little too easy. So far it isn't anoying (yet) But I have to pull the head phones apart then take the set off. Do not recommend that you just pull them off of your head. --this almost cost it a star...it still might.

I have read over many reviews, including Amazon that the next version up of this headset, which is $200, is nothing but problems...that was a main decsion factor in my purchase of this headset.

I've been trying to decide on a gaming headset for Modern Warfare and other FPS for a while and researched many products. I even tried a few. I started out with the Ear Force X41 and while they were great for the surround sound effect, I found the quality very lacking (tinny) and sometimes painful (crackling, popping, hissing, you name it). I also liked that it was wireless... until I used it for a few days. After three, 3-4 hour sessions, the battery was dead. I have plenty of rechargeables but I just didn't like having the headsets go out during a match and then having to find replacement batteries (and getting killed in the process). Being wireless is a convenience and a nuisance at the same time.

Then I tried the Ear Force PX21 because it was able to connect to PC, PS3, and 360, all of which I play on. BUT, there was no surround effect to speak of.. at least none that I could detect. The quality was there but just in stereo. Not much else to say about it.

Lastly, I ordered the Tritton AX 720. What a difference from the PX21 and the X41. It's better than the PX21 because it does have surround and can connect to all 3 systems. It's better than the X41 in sound quality. I'm not an audiophile but these had much warmer lows and cleaner highs that was clearly noticeable from the X41. I immediately returned both of the previous headsets. The surround sound on the AX 720 is there and very noticeable. I found myself instinctively turning toward footsteps before I saw them. The only thing the X41 has is the chat boot feature... but I haven't had any issues talking to my friend in-game with the 720s.

Now, I set about 6 feet away from the TV in my office and the wire from the volume control to the audio processor doesn't get in my way.

Pre-Product Review

After reading all the reviews about the other headset: Turtle Beach, astro A40, Tritton AX Pro, Tritton AX 720

and I have decided to get a Tritton AX 720, and here is why.

Before you continue reading my review, I want to let you know I am in my early adult years, and I am a very decent FPS player, scoring top 1st majority of the times, in games noticeably Battlefield bad company 2; COD modern warfare, etc

From my personal experience, I have never owned a surround sound system, but I sure had some time with them, and I sure want one. But because I live with other people in the house I sure do not to want disturb the peace especially at night.

At first I was looking into audio headset with game sound output, and I didn't know such electronic existed. But researching on different brand of headset, reading reviews and updates extensively while on a budget constraint.

I game on PS3 and I have read that the turtle beach may offer marginal better sound quality but at the cost there is probability that it will break within 6 month, so I swayed away from turtle beach.

If I had the money I would definitely get the Astro A40, but on a budget constraint, I was left with the Tritton Ax Pro or the Ax 720.

I have read that Ax Pro have "real 5.1 surround sound", while the Ax 720 have "simulated surround sound". Ax Pro have 4 speakers on each side of the headset total of 8, which offers more precise directional sound. It features three 30mm driver for front and rear, and 1 40mm for sub-woofer.

While the Ax 720 features only one 40mm driver. But I have read although the Ax Pro does offer superior directional sound, the mid to high range in frequency is worse than the Ax 720 which is superior at.
