Summary: ***Updated*** Well about seven weeks after filing my ticket for a warranty claim a customer service rep finally got in touch with me. From there I sent in my broken headset and was astonished when a week later a new headset was at my door. So Mad Catz did come through and honor their warranty, even though the service was painfully slow (over two months from start to finish). Updated from one star to three star review.
The only road that matters, is the road ahead... New version review. + "Trouble" EDIT.

Summary: I wanted to sneak in an edit/update on this review. As of 11/21/2009 I returned the headset to Amazon. The mic stopped working. I replaced the cord. Nothing. I tried a different mic... nothing. It broke just in time too. On day 29 I printed the return label. I googled the mic breaking, and there is a shocking number of people with the same trouble. Just like the 360, its not a matter of "if" you'll get the 3 red lights, but when.
Summary: After finding a disheartening lack of comparative reviews online I decided that I would write about my own experiences with the above headphones. This review is targeted only at headphones for gaming based on sound from a PS3 slim connected via Monster Ultra Fiber Optic and set to Dolby Digital. I understand there are significantly more options than those I have tested.
Summary: Went through two headsets. The first distorted certain sounds, namely voices, and the second had issues with the voice connection to the 360. It works sometimes, but then it gets choppy or just cuts out entirely, even though I can hear the person on the other end just fine. In addition, they are fairly uncomfortable as they the handband is much too stiff. I didn't realize how bad it was until I went back to my old Sennheiser headphones. Man, what a difference.
Summary: Updated 1-7-2010 Ok well i have owned these since september last year. I have the updated model with 1 ac cord and flexible mic boom. First of all i must say that for all the trouble people i hear that are having with mics and these, call TRITTON directly,they have GREAT customer service and these have a factory 1 year warranty through them. I talked to customer service today and they told me that one of their manafactures was cutting corners making these issues.
Summary: Bought these to use for my PC. Worked great for the year and a half I used them. I found that over time that they kind of stayed loose to my head and the control box on the cable slowly stopped working (along with the mixamp). Great product and I feel like I got my money's worth when I found out it worked with the Dobly Home Theatre drivers in my computer for even better audio.
Sehr gut / Bis auf einen entscheidenden Nachteil!!!

Summary: Die Klangqualität ist überwältigend!! Ich habe es bei BF3 getestet und bin Zuhause bei dem ersten Helikopter in Deckung gegangen! :D ABER: Leider habe ich sehr starke Mikroprobleme bei der Xbox 360 Variante (nur da getestet) und hoffe, dass es sich beim PC legt, denn sonst besitzte ich eine Roboterstimme. Für den Preis INAKZEPTABEL!!!
