When it comes to high-quality gaming headsets, TRITTON Technologies' AX line of Dolby-powered 5.1 surround sound headphones is right at the top of the list. So when it comes to new additions to the critically praised line of ear-pleasers, it only makes sense to reveal them at a massive gaming event. If only there were just such an event coming up soon...
That’s right TRITTON fans. Two new headphones will be on display at this year’s E3, and given the company’s track record for churning out quality products, audiophilic gamers everywhere have a lot to be excited about.
The first headset is the AX 720, which kicks up the Dolby goodness to the next level thanks to the inclusion of Dolby Digital Headphone technology, inline audio controls and a separate control for chat volume. It also sports USB microphone support for PS3, PC and Mac, Xbox Live voice compatibility and a breakaway cable for MP3 player and/or iPhone support.
The other is the AX 400, a new Dolby Headphone-powered wireless headset. The Wii-compatible headphones pack the same audio punch as the AX 720, minus the in-line audio controls obviously. Plus, no wires means you're free to dive around your living room, as you act out the in-game action, without having to sacrifice audio quality. Sweet deal.
And just to show how confident they are in their products, TRITTON will be holding a competition at their E3 booth where attendees will be able to test out and then judge headsets from various companies in an all-out, goes-to-11, audio battle royal.
To find out who wins the “TRITTON Challenge”, be sure to tune into G4’s E3 ’09 coverage starting June 1.
