Summary: I bought these headsets assuming I would be getting the latest version 1.5 based on the product description. I received the older version and I am sending these back. I will wait to buy this headsets until I can walk into Best Buy or Gamestop and get the latest version.
MadCat will not honor warranty or provide any support!

Summary: My AX Pro headset died in a month. I tried contacting MadCatz for support, but they don't answer emails (just get back auto-replies), don't answer their phones (sit on hold till the call drops out), don't answer livechat (never anyone available), and their trouble ticket system has been "down for...
Not the 2011 revision, as depicted in the Amazon images! Do not buy!
14 December 2011
Summary: This headset is the "old" 2010 AX Pro (single power supply) model, it is not the new 2011 revision, that is shown in the main images on the left on Amazon's product page. I am awaiting information as to why it was miss-advertised, and if the new model that is depicted is available from Amazon.
Summary: Unfortunately my headset never worked after my first use. Between the time I fell asleep till the morning as I was excited to play my music in these headphones, they didn't work. Too many cords in my opinion, I later learned that Tritton has faulty equipment anyhow, so I was misguided by some of the...
Summary: I took the time to hook everything up, and then I was ready to play some Battlefield. Much to my dismay, the band that holds the ear pieces together snapped as soon as I put the headset on for the first time. I'm astonished that a $160 headset would break that easily.
Summary: This headset has given me problems from the first time I used it. The microphone seems to have a loose connection internally. I bought this at the beginning of the month and I tried to use it for a month and I gave up and decided to return it.
Summary: I did a lot of homework before I decided to by the Tritton ax pro headset. They were the best pick because of the 5.1 true surround sound. Everything was great until 3 months in the in-line chat stopped working. When ever I would plug them into my controller they would make a horrible buzzing sound.
Summary: I don't know about you, but if I'm going to pay $169.99 for a set of 3D Gaming headphones I'm not going to be happy with a click/hum noise every time they have to reproduce sound. Come on Tritton you were kidding right?
Summary: Tritton does not honor their warranty and customer service is non-existent. I will admit that the headphones were great when working but did not last more than six months. I highly suggest staying away this from company.
Summary: I should have sent it back to Amazon for a new one. Good luck if you RMA these. Mine was DOA out of the box. Sent it to Tritton and all I have heard is "we will ship it on Monday" for the last 3 weeks. The story changes today..
