After finding a disheartening lack of comparative reviews online I decided that I would write about my own experiences with the above headphones. This review is targeted only at headphones for gaming based on sound from a PS3 slim connected via Monster Ultra Fiber Optic and set to Dolby Digital. I understand there are significantly more options than those I have tested. However, my wish is to give a first-person detailed and reliable account regarding the phones I currently or have previously owned. For a summary of what I found just scroll to the bottom of the review.

As a sidenote I have watched just about every youtube video, read every gaming website review, and scanned through every forum in my search for audio bliss. This is the cumulation of my knowledge and experiences.

Originally I had wanted an all in one processor for DTS and Dolby Digital with a simulated surround sound. I watch most movies and play most games at night, and was trying to "kill a few birds with one stone" on this one. After round 1 of extensive research I settled on the Sennheiser RS130s. I bought two sets. The sound was pretty good. I could not detect ANY simulated surround, but for watching movies the dialogue was VERY bright and enjoyable. In addition there was no interference with my Wii or PS3 due to the RF and the charging system was a good setup. Unfortunately, the wireless was also the problem. I tried switching through every single channel and resetting the base unit. I consistently got a weird "modem" buzzing and clicking sound in the background. Some people might be able to overlook it, but I definitely could not. Back they went and back I went to burning my eyes reading everything online.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great price December 12, 2008
There were two main reasons why I wanted to pick up this headset: The first was so I would not disturb others in my household who are not gaming insomniacs like myself and the other was to get an advantage over friends and foes so I can hear where they are coming from and where they are going. The Tritton AxPro satisfies both needs perfectly.

I am currently using the headset to play the game Left 4 Dead on my Xbox 360. The difference in sound quality from my TV speakers (nothing shabby mind you) and this headset is astounding. I can hear the little audio details I otherwise would have missed and the louder effects such as a shot gun firing booms into my ears and rattles down my spine. Most importantly I can hear where someone, or some thing, is. I can hear that hunter zombie growling and scratching off to the left or right in some unseen location just waiting to pounce. When he does pounce his wailing screech makes me want to do one of my own, it freaks me out. I can hear the obese Boomer zombie up ahead belching and waddling getting ready to spew his bile all over me, bile which serves as nectar for the lesser zombies who will feed on me if I am covered in it. I can hear the Smoker zombie shuffling along somewhere behind me, coughing and hacking, just waiting to snag a straggler and drag him off to do bad things to him. This head set has intensified my gaming experience tremendously. My only complaint with the audio, which shouldn't come as a surprise, is that I can't hear if someone is directly behind me. This would be hard for a head set to do and it does do a good job at least of suggesting that a creature might be behind me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cans for the melon. September 2, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got these a little more than a month ago, and have been lovin' them since. I was a bit hesitant on getting these as I've read mixed reviews, but I feel that the bad reviews were either a bad set or they just didn't set them up correctly. I wanted true 5.1 instead of simulated surround, and I just couldn't afford a full HT, plus I can turn up the volume up at night without bothering anyone.

To explain some of the "issues", I have read that they sound "Tinny", well right out of the box, I would agree. At first impression I thought "please don't let this be how they sound, or they are going back", BUT I have found, and read, that you have to set them up right. I completely agree. I spent around an hour trying out different volume amounts for the different speakers with the amount of delay as well. Now they sound fantastic. Not "Tinny" at all. Very natural sound with excellent bass.

Also read that they hiss a lot. Sorta True. Again you have to set them up right. Turn down the volume on the ACU, and use the in-line control for higher volumes with NO hiss. Mine are perfectly quiet, er no distortion. :)

Also read people having problem with the mic. Not really their fault, the included documentation is outdated and not very helpful. The first time I plugged them in, the mic didn't work, or so I thought. What the doc didn't show was that the mic should face straight out, with the notch lining up, and push all the way in an turn to lock in place. The boom will bend toward your mouth. After that, presto the mic works perfectly.

Also read that you can not power off the headset. Not True. Press and hold mute (side button) and press/hold Front button. The ACU has its own power button.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Sound. Cheap Construction.
Bottom line: don't buy it. Its cheap construction does not make up for the sound quality and the bass isn't accurate. Buy some Astro's and do it the right way.
