Review of the AX Pro


I recently received the AX Pro for review. It is a gaming headset made by a company called Tritton. We have had other Tritton products reviewed here on Gadgets and Tech and they have turned out pretty good. Over this review I will tell you if the AX Pro continues the pattern.

Of course what everyone wants to know about gaming headsets is their sound quality. To me this is one of the AX Pro’s biggest pros. This headset has excellent sound quality. The sound quality from these headphones is better than my TV. It also has 5.1 surround sound so you feel even more into your game. To deliver this excellent sound quality the AX Pro has eight speakers, four in each ear.

One of the items that is included in the box is a controller for the headset. On it you can increase or decrease the volume, turn your microphone on and off and turn the chat on the game higher or lower. You can also choose to turn different parts of the acoustics higher or lower. Just click the part you want to change and put it up or down. You can choose between front, center, rear or subwoofer. If you don’t click a certain one then you will just control all of them by default.

Since the AX Pro is a gaming headset a microphone is also included. So you can talk to your friends on Xbox Live, PlayStation Network or your Mac/PC. I did find one problem with the microphone; it doesn’t pick up quieter sounds. So if you talk softer than most people this might not be for you because the microphone will not be able to pick up your voice. Other than that small problem the microphone has worked fine for me.

The biggest con I found in the AX Pro is its size and set up time. It did take me a while to figure out where all the cords go because there are many cords that come in the box with the headset itself. The set up process is also fairly complex. There are many different boxes, cords, and outlets, but hopefully you can figure it out with the instruction manual that they give you. This is one thing that I think they could improve on in the next generation of the AX Pro. Once you figure out the set up instructions you are good to go!

Final Points

Pros

  • Sound quality is excellent.
  • Surround sound. 
  • Microphone included.

Cons

  • Very bulky set up with many pieces.
  • Cords seem like they are going everywhere.
  • Microphone doesn’t pick up quieter sounds.

If you want a great sounding gaming headset with surround sound and you don’t mind a bulky set up system or many cords then the AX Pro would be a great choice for you. You can pick up the AX Pro online for around $160. In my opinion, the pros definitely outweigh the cons.
