Tritton’s AX Pro Gaming Headset seems like a beast. It comes equipped with 5.1 Dolby surround sound and a detachable microphone that’s compatible over Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. It also looks snazzy, which is more than what I can say about these lovely headphones.
Hardcore gaming enthusiasts seem to dig them, as Tritton’s headset was selected to represent them in The Sci-Fi Channel’s WCV Ultimate Gamer — a reality show that will pit 12 gamers again each other in various digital (I saw RockBand 2, Street Fighter IV and Halo 3 in the show’s trailer) and real life competitions. It airs at 7 P.M. Pacific on March 10, if you’re interested.
We’ll be reviewing the AX Pro Gaming Headset in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back in with us about it. Until then, tell me what you expect from a gaming headset. Or what you’ve always wanted from one.
