The Tritton AX 720 is ranked #3 on our list of the best gaming headsets of 2011. The AX 720 uses Dolby digital as well as Dolby Headphone technology in order to bring you an environment that is a 3D audio experience. Included within the ear pads are 40mm drives that give you the perfect highs and the low bass that you’re looking for.The AX 720 makes it easy to chat with teammates on Ventrilo, Xbox Live, Playstation Network (all game systems), or other voice chat softwares with its superior.
The microphone is an adjustable boom microphone that can actually be removed if its more comfortable to go without it.
As far as sound goes any movie, cinematic, or effect elements are simply incredible and really can’t be beat. A negative aspect to these headsets is the lack of 5.1 digital surround sound. I find this extremely important in first person shooters.
Customer Reviews on Amazon:
“I Love these headphones with my PS3. The Tritton Triax-720 is an excellent set of headphones with convincing surround effects. They offer a relatively easy set up for my PS3. The flexible microphone is easy to adjust and it’s removable, which is a plus. You can adjust game and chat volume independently.”
Customer Reviews on NewEgg:
“Pros: Comfortable with great sound! dose not hurt your ears from wearing them long periods of time! Awsome for gaming. Smooth sound for movies and videos or music, verry loud. Clean and clear microphone and I’ve never had anyone in the game say i sound bad!
Cons: “The ear piece covers don’t like to stay on! When you take the headset off you have to be extra careful! Just moving them from the desk to the shelf the ear cover falls off, and if you have kids like i do this could be a big problem!”
Overall we give these headphones a 4 out of 5 stars. The lack of 5.1 surround sound and the higher price makes it difficult to choose these over the G930 or another higher end 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound model for a few dollars more. If you are looking for your PS3, then the setup seems convenient and sound is great enough that we would highly recommend these.
