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. The wireless headsets out there including the X41 only removes that one wire from the volume control to the audio processor. You still need the volume control and the mic cable to your controller if you're on the 360. Not a big deal for me... the crackling, popping, and hissing was.
Aside for all that, here's the most important reason I like the 720s... I wear glasses and anyone who does can attest to the fact that over-the-ear headsets can be painful! The X41 are a good example. The cups pressed on my rather large ears and onto the stems on the glasses. At first, it was unnoticeable but after a couple of hours, I had to take my glasses off and hang them over the cups so I could still see (at an odd angle no less). My ears and the skin behind them were sore from the pressure. The PX21s led to the same effect.
I don't know what it is with the AX 720s but they designed a great headset for glass wearing geeks. They don't press on my ears or the stems on the glasses AT ALL! Most of the pressure (which isn't much) come from the top rim of the soft cups so the rest of the cup doesn't seem to apply that much pressure. I've gamed for 8hours with my glasses on without any pain. It's a miracle!
Just for those interested, I also was looking at the Tritton AX Pro for the discreet adjustments you can make on each channel. I'm wondering if that would make an even bigger difference in noticing the surround sound effects. Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't sell them directly as well as costing $70 more, and returns with 3rd party sellers are a pain. I also, just yesterday, came across the Sharkoon Xstatic 5.1 which seems exactly like the Tritton AX Pro as far as the audio processor goes down to the volume control module (but about $30 less or $40 more than the AX 720) ...hmmm. They're either a sister company or someone's going to get sued for patent infringement. lol
All in all, you can't go wrong with the AX 720... especially if you wear glasses.
If you have the money to spend on these Tritton's they're cool and you can play with loud volume without disturbing other people. The mic is detachable, and the headphones are comfortable - I can wear them for hours and not worry. Set up is easy; the directions in the booklet are clear and simple for ps3. Perhaps, the best feature is being able to adjust the game and voice (other people's) volume separately on the inline remote, great feature!
You won't be disappointed.
Its important to note that I didn't buy these to watch films or to listen to music. I already have an amazing pair of headphones that serve that purpose so I cannot say one way or the other just how good these headphones are in that regard. I purchased these for one purpose and one purpose only, for gaming and in this regard they are simply AMAZING!
First and foremost they sound amazing. The 40mm drivers do not disappoint as the bass is simply outstanding and the highs are very very clear. I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting that they would sound as good as they sound. Don't get me wrong, I was expecting high quality but these delivered above and beyond what I was expecting for a gaming headset in the 150$ price range. I now understand why my friends were so adamant about recommending this headset. It simply doesn't get much better than this in regards to gaming. The simulated 5.1 sound is impressive in every respect. I had absolutely no problem figuring out where sounds were coming from and the dual headphone/microphone control is simply a must have feature. It allows you to fine tune the volume to meet your needs.
As much as I love how these headphones sound, my single favorite aspect to these headphones has to be how comfortable they are. I perfectly understand that this is extremely subjective as heads come in all shapes and sizes and so do people's preferences in regards to headphones. Some people like light headphones, some like them a bit heavier. Some people have really big ears so need a larger opening, some dont and thus want a more tapered opening. In other words everyone is different in regards to headphone comfort. With that being said, the Tritton's are hands down one of the most comfortable pairs of headphones I have ever worn. They are absolutely perfect for me. Its like they used a model of my head when they designed them. The fit is absolutely perfect and so is the weight, not to light and not to heavy. I honestly wouldn't change a thing in this regard even if I could. They are a tad on the heavier side but that is exactly how I prefer my headphones and I had absolutely zero head fatigue with these, even after super long gaming sessions. I honestly cant give these any higher praise in regards to fit and comfort.
The microphone is detachable, which is a must in my book, and its super easy to adjust. A lot of cheaper headsets have very unmanageable microphones. Well that is certainly not the case here. Its extremely bendable and very easy to adjust. Like the rest of this headset, the quality of the microphone is superb.
As for the installation, I had absolutely no problem setting these up. The directions are concise and very easy to understand. For people that have a basic knowledge of hooking up consumer electronics, these should be a no-brainer. I had my set out of the box and hooked up in less than 3 minutes.
Bottom line - Whether your gaming on a 360, a PS3, or even a PC/Mac, if your looking for a high quality pair of gaming headphones then look no further. Sure, if you absolutely have to have the best then you can spend another 100 bucks and get the A40's but I for one see absolutely no reason to do so. These headphones are outstanding in every regard. They sound fantastic, fit like a glove, and have all of the options one looks for in a high quality gaming headset. Again I wouldn't change a thing even if I could.
