The Tritton AX 720 gaming headset is a 7.1 surround sound headset that features immersive 3D directional audio, separate game and voice controls, as well as deep bass and crisp highs. Based on the description, the Tritton AX 720 should prove to be absolutely brilliant and well worth the £130 price tag. Let's find out… Upon removing the headset from the box, it soon becomes apparent that the Tritton AX 720 means business. As well as a detachable microphone and an in-line audio controller, the AX 720 comes with a separate decoder box for the various connections that are supported; including PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac. You receive a range of different accessories with the Tritton AX 720, seen as though it's compatible with quite a few platforms. Included in the box: The headset itself is coloured white and made from plastic, but has that sturdy and well-made feel to it. Each ear piece sports the Tritton logo and has the typical adjust-ability. The earpieces fit around the ears, rather than over them and have just the right amount of padding so that they sit comfortably. The microphone is detachable rather than being typically fixed to the headset, which I found to be a great feature because the microphone doesn't get in the way when not in use.
Among all the video game accessories available today, no other market seems to be expanding as rapidly as the video game headset. With most current-generation consoles able to produce 5.1 surround sound, finding a headset solution to handle such a request is now much easier than before. We've tested a handful of gaming headsets, most of which are not designed to accommodate 5.1 sound. The latest from Tritton, the AX 720, not only handles 5.1 surround sound, but it does a pretty impressive job at doing so. The last Tritton product we tested, the AX Pro 5.1, performed well, but we were really turned off by the gratuitous number of connections that had to be made in order for the system to function properly. This time around, Tritton has slashed the amount of connectivity required, all while maintaining most of the same user experience. The AX 720 will take any optical audio connection you can throw at it, allowing you to hook up any video game console that supports it (Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3). This also means that any device with an optical out can be decoded by the AX 720 amplifier. DVD and Blu-ray players, even a PC with a sound card supporting the proper outputs, will also work.
