The one time it’s good to get the axe.



Let’s say you spend a ton of cash and time pimping out your home theater system. You get the best TV with the newest tech and a fancy stereo system to boot. But perhaps there’s a catch? What if you live in an apartment with a noise curfew or maybe you have a baby that is sleeping down the hall? All that money you spent on a great system goes down the toilet.

When you think in those terms, spending $200 on a really nice pair of Dolby 5.1 surround sound headphones is getting off cheap. While the Tritton AX Pro Precision Gaming Headset may seem a little pricy for a set of cans, what you get with them ends up being quite a deal.

There’s a set of tiny little speakers in each ear that you can balance through an attached controller for the perfect blend between front to back and left to right. And they sound fantastic. The sounds of exploding shrapnel in Far Cry 2 boom. The tunes blaring out of my ride in GTAIV are bright and clear. And the best part is, I can attach them to any of my systems for the same aural experience. And instead of adding a vibration function, they just made the subwoofer as badass as they could. I much prefer that to the dying vibrator effect of most sound units I’ve tried with rumble.

While most headsets of the same quality tend to be exclusive for one rig or another, the AX Pros set themselves apart through sheer diversity. Whether you get your kicks playing WoW, sneaking around in a box in MGS4, blasting away Flood in Halo, or all of the above, you can connect these puppies to your console or PC and get the same brilliant sound out of all them.

The headset has a ton of options, such as optical or analog inputs, but the drawback to that is the sheer amount of stuff involved using them. When you open the box for the first time, you might be a bit intimidated by the tons of cables to connect and two big wall warts to power everything. This is most equipment I’ve ever seen for a headset in my life.

The only other problem you may have with these headphones is that since each ear pad contains four separate speakers, it can feel quite cumbersome on your head. While there is a good amount of padding to counter it, they are big and there are a lot wires and attachments that go with them. So they’re not really ideal for traveling.

While it might seem a bit daunting at first to put it all together, the rewards are worth it. This is seriously the best and most compact sound system I’ve ever had. If you do decide to put up the cash for the AX Pro headphones, you will not be disappointed.
