Gears of War 3 Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound Headset for Xbox 360
Tried at Comic-Con
At the NerdHQ outside Comic-Con they had Gears 3 Horde mode set up for five ppl to play at once, and every set had these headphones equipped. They seriously sound amazing and made the game way more fun. I seriously played through 10 waves of horde mode, looked up and a party was going on around me. Hadn't even noticed cause the sound was so immersive. I'm definitely buying these bad-boys...
Too Good to be True
These headsets are so great the sound us unbelievable, my only complaint is the cords if they didn't have so many cords it would be better if they didnt have so many wires. The 179.99 was good for what I got if it were wireless that would have put these over the top but It saves me from plenty arguements about why the tv is up so loud I can my wife can read her book while I play GOW3 and she won't hear a thing.
Why doesn't the preview video work? It'd be nice to see what this product actually looks like on video along with the pulsating LED's before I spend the money. Technical teams should get on that.......
This headset is awesome!!
I have been using the Tritton AX Pro with my Xbox 360 and my PS3 for the last 2 years. I have tried numerous headsets in the past and have been most impressed with the Tritton's.
TRUE DOLBY DIGITAL
independent speaker controls for Front, Rear, Center, and Sub
Break away cords.
Works with PC, PS3, and Xbox 360
Cords, Cords, Cords
Mic is stiff and not very adjustable
Overall id rate the Tritton's a 8 out of 10
Get rid of all the cords and it would be a 10!!!
$179 because it has the Crimson Omen on it?!?
Look, just because Gears 3 is one of the most anticipated games and because it's going to be one heck of a game, DOESN'T mean that you need to pay so much for anything and everything that slaps a Gears sticker on it. There's already a Gears 3 Console bundle, multiple variants of Gears 3 Lancer bundles, and even a Gears 3 boardgame (...yeah, I know....). Look, I love Gears as much as the next fanboy. But honestly, if you're that big of a Gears fan and you're willing to go all out, then I have at it. But rather than wasting $179 on this wannabe pro gaming headset just because it has a crimson omen sticker on it, spend $100 more and get yourself a REAL Pro gaming headset. I'm talking about the 2011 Astro A40 wireless system with a customized set of Gears speakertags. You WONT regret it.
Gonna be Awesome
I think I might get these on if I can hear the game action through the headphones rather the tv, because It will get on my nerves if my wife nags me all night about the game is to loud. I like the design and if does that one thing I would absolutely buy these so I don't have to hear anything because the game will be game of the year hands down.
this head set is realy good
it should be wierless but i love this head set the sound is amazin and it dont take batterys and it is alot better then my turtle beach earforce X31 what more could u ask 4.
Trittons are beast
Honestly having test run nearly every headset out, the Ax720's are the best.
The surround sound is clear and definately helps hear those 'hidden surprises' in multiplayer. They also enable the wearer to hear things hard to hear on other sets (say turtle beach for example)
I am not a 'fanboy' by any means, I simply did extensive tests with several sets from many companies and find that 11 out of 12 testers (myself included) prefer Ax720's over anything else out there, comfort, style, and supreme sound quality are huge factors, enabling voice/game independent controls also helps.
Don't believe me? Try some 720s yourself and hear and feel the difference. As long as they didn't decide to change out the 'guts' these 720's should be amazing - and my favorite colours to boot.
The cost is not about the logo on the side
The cost of these headsets is not about the gears of war 3 logo on the sides of them but the high quality headset that TRITTON provides. I have had two headsets made by TRITTON and they usually last 6 years plus even though my roommates tend to be rough on them. The pair I use now is 9 years old but I think its time to upgrade from 5.1 to 7.1 surround sound.
These are going to be some real bad boys!
I mean everybody would prefer Turtle Beachs(a.k.a Girlie Beachs). But I have went through five pairs of turtle beachs considering the fact I just picked up some Tritton Ax720's a couple months ago and let me tell you I have never been more pleased in my life. But i decided to sell them bad boys for eighty bucks so i can get these. Yea it was a steal... But hey these are the same bad boys as my older pair but who would want to turn down some led lights and most especially another add on to your gears collection!!! I mean if you haven't already ordered these bad boys then something is wrong with you!!! And yea these bad boys are just like the Tritton Ax720's but better Trust Me i already tested these bad boys in Springfield, IL's gamestop and i love them. Their look their feel. The sounds quality especially, i mean i was surrounded by tons of customers and didn't hear a single one of them behind so imagine you not being able to hear anyone yelling at you while your playing as in your granma, granpa, mom, dad anyone in your annoying family, or even one of your loved ones to annoy you in the last game of the trilogy . Now I'm telling you order these bad boys and you won't go wrong! Yes and gears is going to be legendary!!!
