Universal Tritton AX180 Headset
I bought this product and was impressed at first but after a couple of weeks the Xbox 360 portion of this mike stoped working after that the right ear cup started to snap off even though I took great care of this product. This headset is not built well at all and it is definitely not worth $70
I received this as a gift at an MDA event, and they are awesome. Sound quality is good, but there is occasional echo from mic. Also, these can make your ears sweat, and may feel uncomfortable if they seem too small. Overall, this is an excellent headset.
Breaks too often, but is a tolerable headset.
I bought this headset to use with my PC, a USB headset for Skype, and listening to music and a higher quality than I can find for a $30 headset. When I looked here for this headset, I did not thing much of the reviews, or the rating it had, and I had purchased the headset shortly after. It worked great for the next month. It did have a buzzing noise when I was in a Skype call, where it used the microphone (seems like the only time it makes the buzzing noise, is when the headset needs to use the microphone). Other than that, it was a pretty awesome headset. After a month, however, I noticed a crack on the left arm of the headset, just above the left rotating cuff. Of course, a moment of trying to wear it after that, and it broke even more. I contacted Tritton/Madcatz customer support and had it repaired quickly (they received it on a Monday, and I got it back on the following Friday). I was rather happy with how fast the process was. The headset was great, this time for another month and a half. Then when I take my headset off in the late hours, I notice a crack again, in the same exact spot. The following morning I have gotten out the box and receipt to make copies again, as I will be sending it in for repairs again. And I will probably just sell this headset on Craigslist after this repair, since I can't be having a headset that breaks every month. When I purchased from Tritton, I did not purchase quality. I got a device that works for a month and then has its own structure fail. I will not be buying a Tritton headset again, I will probably be purchasing a cheaper, and probably better overall Turtle Beach headset.
Don't buy if your after a headset to chat.
Overall the headset sounds wonderful. Used this headset for my PC and the main game I played was Planetside 2. Right off the the get go my friends could hardly hear me. Within a week the mic stopped working. If you plan to use this headset for chatting online I don't recommend this headset. If your are just needing a headset for sound this headset sounds amazing.
I will keep using this product.
The Universal Tritton AX180 Headset is the best headset ive used yet and i will keep using it. it puts out the best sound. i can here evey little thing and when headset is on i can barely hear noise around me when its on. i will recommend this product to my friends and family. soo please keep selling this item. thank you for such a great headset.
Good investment, but...
I feel as though this particular headset is for people who are starting to put money towards a headset. These Trittons in particular are a good starting point: they're durable, comfortable, dependable (for the most part), and gives good sound quality. The only two things I should point out is that if you're a gamer like me and like to move around a lot it gets to be a hindrance when you accidentally unplug it and all the series of cords it comes with. Sometimes I talk to my friends online and the mic cuts on and off, but when you unplug it and plug it back it everything returns to normal. So, if you don't move a whole bunch and want to get a good mic that's pretty endurable and has good sound quality I say start here and then branch out to the better pairs of Trittons :)
Well theTrittonss were good the first week until they broke and I couldn't hear the game and I found out I did not have a cord plugged in and I plugged it in and it worked I love them!
Great headset for the price
I've had this headset for well over a year. It is easy to use and for the price you can't go wrong. These are just as good as a $250 dollar set. I highly recommend these to anyone looking for a good set at a good price.
good headset overall for xbox
I just bought this today. The overall performance is great and has its own little surround sound. looks durable, however it does make a high pitch hz sound that some people dont like when the mic is on and youre not gaming.
Returned them in 3 days.
They seemed like a really nice headset. I took them home, set them up, and put them on. My first thoughts were "Wow this is amazing" and "These are so comfy". But after about a day I encountered this huge technical issue that made me return these within 3 days of owning. There was this high pitch buzzing noise and every 5 minutes it would occur. In my xbox 360 live party's my friends would go nuts because of how annoying it was. I needed a better headset. But before I put them down I gave them a chance and did a little research. About everyone that has owned them and written an online review said they encountered this same issue. After my research I went and grabbed my keys and went to return them. DO NOT BUY!
