Summary: Compared these to Turtle Beach Z6A which I had to return due to a defective front speaker. I am VERY happy I got these instead. Compared to the Turtle Beach Z6A these PC51HDa Trittons: - Provide the same 5.1 surround sound on your PC - Provide BETTER clearer and deeper bass - Provide same level of clarity for higher frequency sounds - Have more comfortable leather ear cushions - Have cool lights where Z6A has none - Have a nice clean black design But: - Microphone is...
Summary: i love to use a headset for gaming since i love to crank games like Battlefield 3, the sound is pretty good imo. being able to remove the mic when i dont need it is pretty nice. i would recommend this product to friends.
Summary: I paired this headset with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional sound card and I can hear people coming up behind me in my games. They sound fantastic, fit well & are comfy. I can wear them for hours without any issues.
Summary: In addition to reviewer Koshbhakti's remark that, "The master volume is a knob instead of a rocker and when the volume is turned all the way down [with on/off detents] the headset powers off.", I think it's worth noting that the power state of the headset is reflected on both the Headset itself (Tritton's Double-T logo turns on/off on the sides), but also on the U-shaped window on the control module (can be seen on Amazon's 7th product image), which will be Green or Red...
Summary: This headset claims to be a 5.1 surround sound but their is NO WIRE FOR REAR SPEAKERS!!! this headset is missing the "white" rear speaker wire and you will have no rear speakers. I cant believe no one has pointed this out yet. To be considered a 5.1 surround sound head set you need to have the rear speakers. I have owned this headset for 1 week and it is not a TOTAL buzz kill but if you advertise a 5.1 surround then you must include the rear speaker.
Summary: Superb tool/toy. I've shared this with my 13-year old son, too. Great sound and it's perfect for online, well, everything. The size of this headset is a surprise. I thought that I might be able to bring it on an airplane, too - to watch videos. But it's VERY large, so that's not going to happen. I do recommend it for anyone sitting at a desk, playing games, listening to music of watching videos. Nice product.
Summary: I recently got the Tritton PC51u headset after my Kalman RS6 headphones suffered a severe structural failure following 4 years of use. It took a little to figure out how to get things configured (it would be nice if they had a legend on the plugs as to simplify matters, instead of relying on matching colors. There is a little bit of noise in from the amplifier when you turn things up, and it does pick up electrical noise from cooling fans.
Summary: I had a G35 previously which is a great headset, but the lack of hardware acceleration and configuring of the surround sound speakers was not for me. With the Tritton I was able to set the rears, sub, center, and fronts to different volumes easily with the in line volume control, which is handy for myself being partially deaf. The G35 was a great headset but I prefer having the analog connections and customization of speakers in the Tritton.
Summary: As a Battlefield (the game) veteran, I was looking for a new pair of True surround sound headphones before the launch of BF3. Ive tested these extensively with BFBC2 and love them. Great for gaming.
Summary: Summary: There are some drawbacks but overall they are good. Worth buying. What is not to like about this headset? Well: 1 - It's hot with prolonged use. For something marketed for gamers I think this is terrible. Gaming sessions last hours sometimes, especially for MMORPG games. Even FPS games, which can be considerably shorter per session, last long enough to be uncomfortably hot.
