Tritton AXPRO 5.1 Headphones with 8 Speakers

August 14, 2019

Alright, guys, you’re looking at the Tritton AX Pro. This thing is, oh man, so ridiculous, I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s almost too much. It’s a little bit over the top. But, if you’re one of those types of people, you know, over the top, this is right up your alley. This is a 5.1 surround sound headset. But usually those things are 2 speakers and they’re emulating surround sound with processing. Instead, these are actually surround sound. There’s four speakers in each cup of these things. You can’t see them, but there’s four drivers in each one. There’s highs, mids, you even got a sub in each ear. Okay? So you get literally the best 3D awareness that you’ve ever gotten from any gaming headset. This is not only for PC. It’s optimized for Xbox 360. It’s optimized for PS 3 network. It’s optimized for your PC, as well. And, on top of that, you can use them just to listen to Hi Fi music. High fidelity stuff if you want to, because they sound absolutely great. They’re gonna give you the clearest, crispest highs, and some pretty grungy base that’s… it’s gonna vibrate your head a little bit. Let’s talk about these a little bit. I got a lot to go over. This is gonna take awhile. There’s a lot of stuff in here. First of all, they look really cool. This lights up orange at night, so it’s gonna look really cool if you’re at a land party, you’re not going to feel like a retard having dumb headsets on. You’re gonna look cool. ‘Cuz these things look really, really sick. They got an adjustable mic, right here. And it’s also removable, so if you don’t want to use it, you simply pull it out right there. And, besides that, they are extremely comfortable and extremely adjustable. You can remove this top piece, right here. And you can also remove these side pieces and install different ones, different sizes, to suit your ear as comfortably as possible. Now, everything about these is awesome, but I’m gonna move on to the stuff that is attached to it. So, first of all, you’re gonna notice that you have this box right here. Now these are Dolby Digital Certified, and they’re also certified for Dolby ProLogic. So, you can adjust your individual Dolby channels, right here. You pretty much… You hold which one you wanna adjust and then you move them up and down for volume. Also, if you push it down you get a mute. So, you can mute your rear channel. Or, you can hold it down and mute all of them. It’s… It’s absolutely crazy. Another thing you’re gonna notice is that you have a mute for your mic down here, and your mic control up here. And also, these are all gonna light up. So, these are gonna tell you, individually adjusted by lighting up. And you even have a key on the back. It tells you red is the maximum. Cayenne is high. White is medium. Blue is low. And then minimum is green. So, you will be able to tell what volume each level is set up at. Now, another really, really cool feature, right here at the bottom. See that right there? That’s a 3 point, looks like a 2.5 mm audio jack, actually. But, that, you use this cable that’s provided and this is for your Xbox Live. So if you wanna plug your Xbox Live into here, you can do it. You just put this right in here, and the other one will go directly into your controller, and boom, you’re talking on Xbox Live with your friends. Another thing that’s really cool about this thing is that you can adjust you master volume. You can adjust your chat volume. And you can also adjust your mic volume. All independently. So if everyone sounds a little loud, you can lower them. If the game sounds too loud you can lower that. And if you want people to hear you, you can increase your mic volume. So that’s extremely cool. As far as connectivity goes, it’s kind of weird. You have a very long 12, I think it’s a 12 foot cable, 12.5 foot cable. And it goes to these proprietary connectors. There’s two of them. There you go. Right there. And this right here is power. Yes. Power. You need to actually plug in a wall jack into your headphones, just to power them. So you’re gonna plug your power in, right there. And this other one is gonna go into your processing box. You actually have a real processing box right here which is almost unheard of. I think it literally is unheard of. I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s absolutely ridiculous. There is true Dolby processing in here. So, if you noticed, right here, you can do time delay and dynamic range compression changes. So, if you wanna do volume, you can adjust your volume, right here. Or you can turn your ProLogic on and off. That’s this setting. If you flip it over here, now you’re on your time delay. So if you wanna increase or decrease your time delay to whatever channel you want, you can pick those here. Or, if you wanna do dynamic range compression, you can turn it on and off with this button. So that’s really cool. And then you can also do the time delay on either your surround or your center channel using this little selector. This is your power selector. This is where your USB microphone is gonna plug in for your computer. And this is where your Toss Link cable is gonna come in from your Toss Link card. If you do not have a Toss Link, I’ll put an S/PDIF optical output. You can use these 5.1 surround, 3.5 mm audio jacks for your analog. And this thing will automatically convert. It’s got a digital to analog converter inside of here. So that’s absolutely really crazy. And you literally just plug them up and use this instead, and plug it right on in and it will go straight from there. Or, if you do have that S/PDIF optical, they do give you the Toss Link cable. Or the S/PDIF cable, and that’s all optical, no metal. Really, really cool stuff. And they also give you a second power adaptor. I think that’s the only con to this thing, is that you’re gonna run out of power strip space when you have two adaptors, one for the box and one for the headset. It is again, really, really over the top. I’ve never seen anything like it. You also get the USB cable on the inside, you know, with it. So, this is for your microphone, I mean, this is really, really out of control. And, they’re very, very nice. Definitely intended for gamers. You got the long cord, you can adjust… This is the best controller I’ve ever seen. You can adjust every channel of your… All your Dolby channels on this. So, your front, your rear, your center channel, your subwoofer, they can all be controlled. Through this controller you can adjust your mic, your game volume and your chat volume. Let’s see if I missed anything. 4 speakers per cup. That’s really ridiculous to have 4 drivers in here. They’re superbly comfortable. And, let me see if I missed anything. Not really. Actually, the only thing I missed is the passthrough. This is very cool. You also have a passthrough here. So, again. Let’s say you’re using your S/PDIF optical out to here, you can use this output. It’s kind of like a passthrough to do 5.1 channel audio to your self powered speakers. They’ve gotta be self powered so that can’t use a receiver. But, if you have self powered speakers, like Logitechs, or anything like that, you can plug them right into here, and go from there. That’s really cool. And, gosh, I’m pretty much at a loss for words. This thing is very, very impressive. The Tritton AX Pro Headset. They’re extremely comfortable. They block out a lot of sound. And they sound terrific. And they don’t even look that bad either. You’re not gonna look too goofy at a land party. So, big thumbs up for me. I like these a lot. If you have any questions on them, Email me. And, I’ll see you guys next time. For more information on the Tritton AX Pro 5.1 Surround Sound Headsets, go to any of these retailers and type in: T26-1114 into their search engines.

    @PhotoShopChannel 8 speakers = 7.1 (7 channels + 1 efx) but thease headphones aims on doing 5.1 since they need 1 efx and 1 center in each cup = 2 extra channels. So if they were going to do 7.1 they would need 5 speakers in each cup.
