Tritton AX360 Headphones Review

If you are a gamer than you know that sound is just as important as graphics. It can mean the difference between a game experience being mediocre and phenomenal. Tritton has developed some headphones that can really make this difference.

The idea, to me at least, behind these headphones is to provide a product that can deliver what a 200+ dollar soundcard can. With 5.1 surround sound, tons of ways to connect these puppies to anything, a mic that works with your pc/xbox360, and digital hook ups, these headphones in fact do deliver what they say they do.

Yes. The headphones are awesome with a computer that doesn’t have a way of putting out amazing surround sound into your ears. But where they really shine in my eyes is when I hook them up to my 360.

Let’s say that you don’t have surround sound, your girlfriend is working on homework in the same room, and you need to be able to hear / talk to people in Halo. Guess what? Tritton allows for all the above circumstances to be a reality.

Don’t have surround sound ports on your pc? No big deal. Tritton comes with a self-powered input/output box that allows you to experience the full effect of your headphones. You can also change the volume for each one of the four speakers in the headphones individually.

Do you have a sound card that puts out surround sound (like a fatal1ty series)? If you answered yes to this, then these headphones aren’t for you. I found that I got better sound out of just using my 80 dollar studio headphones with my fatal1ty sound card.

If you answered no to the above question, then I would seriously consider you getting these headphones. They really are some of the most versatile headphones I have ever come across, they sound great, and are really gamer friendly. They also have an audio rumble effect which is pretty nifty. So if you have 120 bucks lying around and need some new headphones, look no further than the Tritton AX360’s!
