Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Adapter

Adapter:
"Not even good for a kid the wire going from controller to headset broke first day had to find adapters to make a different cable workMic fell off about a week later for no reason it was taken care of and put in a rack nightly just very poor quality"
_
"The only downsides to this are that they are not compatible with the Turtle Beach's wireless adapter, meaning no surround sound, BUT the rich and clear and loud sounds that they make completely make up for that."
_
"The overall cabling on the Triton is far superior in build quality to both the turtle beach headsets, it has a thick quality cable and great in line adapter."
_
"These work, and they work well on the XBONE with the Stereo Adapter."
_
"I wanted corded, 'cause wireless eats up batteries and occasionally has interference... and they HAD to work with the HDMI... these have a 14' cord and come with the adapter to work with HDMI, PERFECT..."
_
"Tritton Trigger:+ More phone accessible.+Audio Adapter included.+ sleek design.+A bit cheaper than the X12.+ Thicker cable, a bit more Tangle proof."
_
"No problems with syncing the headset to the adapter, and the range of 30+ feet is legitimate."

Amazon

Amazon:
"THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD, sad that Amazon would even let a company like this do business on their site."
_
"I purchased this Tritton Detonator headset on Amazon; this is an absolutely terrible product."
_
"Do yourself a favor and just grab one from Amazon which is WAY MORE ROBUST with a THICKER cable - depending on where you place it you may wish for a longer cable - the one that came for it in my opinion is too short and of terrible quality."
_
"I want to be clear on that because, the MadCatz Amazon product page lists 4 different headsets, all available through the same page and the posted reviews are a hodgepodge of the reviews for all 4, different products."
_
"Plus Amazon got it to me on time and they have the best customer support ever."
_
"Amazon was great with the return and refund!"
_
"I'm a 2hr night gamer (COD, Battlefield, Dead Space, Borderlands, etc are my jams).PS: I have a pair of Tritton Trigger's (wired, that i no longer use) that sound 90% as good as these and they're $40 on amazon."

Base

Base:
"Charging base developed a contact problem after only 2 months of service and had to be replaced."
_
"There's something wrong with the base or something."
_
"A nice caveat was not only the charging station built into the base, but also that it came with two rechargeable batteries."
_
"No screw driver or crazy tool needed the battery cover is a magnetic design so it is easy to take off, pull the dead batt, replace, and insert dead batt into the base charger."
_
"Anyway I wasn't worried because I thought the base was not going to overcharge the batteries."
_
"The X12 also has a base boost feature which is nice for movies."
_
"The rechargeable batteries included with it would be a good feature if they weren't slightly too large to be easily removed from their recharge slot on the base."
_
"I love the magnetic battery covers on both the headset and the base."
_
"Easily fits of my (somewhat late) ears- Build quality is great- Stand Base station- Sound quality is excellent- No clicks or pops (and I have a lot of network interference at my houseBad:- Has optical in but not out (can't pass through to signal to go to a sound bar) this was a pain for me since my Turtle Beach had this feature and my audio setup was designed around it."

Battery

Battery:
"I left one of my batterys in the charging port and after a week I needed it so I opened the port and the battery was expanded a little and was damaged and I can't use it, so now I only have a single battery."
_
"Also the battery life isn't very good."
_
"However, since I had a defective part I wanted to make sure everything else was functional before I worried about the battery."
_
"Both batteries fail to hold a charge and take 8-10 hours to recharge."
_
"The thing uses batteries at a ridiculous pace."
_
"the battery chargers in the stand it's fantastic."
_
"the fact you can be playing and have the battery indicator on your xbox dashboard is great."
_
"Sound quality is excellent, bass decent for battery powered headset."
_
"The twin batteries is great as well."
_
"Simple and reliable and no batteries to changeAmplified audio (USB powered plugs into Xbox)Separate chat and game volume controls (Plays game sound and teammate chat through both speakers)Stereo sound (all have good sound quality)Similar hook up to Xbox (RCA cables with optional chat wire to Xbox controller)Still with me, OK."

Beach

Beach:
"Not as good as turtle beaches"
_
"I have spent over two hundred dollars on turtle beaches which broke after a few months as well."
_
"I have 2 turtle beach (xp510,and 400 or something) and i wasn't really happy with them, i felt as if i were losing sound at points and wasn't really getting full surround probably (and i know how to hook my stuff up, just saying i have a home theater system running prologic iiz when i watch movies, dont know what prologic iiz is?"
_
"The wires on this are the least annoying I've ever seen on a turtle beach."
_
"Not as nice and seamless as the Warhead, but much better than the Turtle Beach's I own."
_
"The ear pieces however are very small compared to turtle beaches and are INSANELY UNCOMFORTABLE!"
_
"Before these I went through 3 different pairs of turtle beach, these are way more comfortable, and even sound better, less complicated to hook up to different systems and so far seem to be holding up much better! "
_
"I have spent over two hundred dollars on turtle beaches which broke after a few months as well."
_
"I would recommend buying an analog pair of turtle beaches or triton's for $40-$50."
_
"-Advantage: Turtle beach ControlsIn order for a set of gaming headphones to work with the Xbox 360, they must be self amplified."
_
"-Advantage: Turtle beachBoth Turtle Beach headsets have Microphone monitoring Nonadjustable but also very nice feature and in my opinion a must."

Button

Button:
"Comfort: 8.5 10Sound: 9 10User Friendly - 10 10 - most buttons require that you hold it for at least 1 second and they are dead serious, the power button for instance is not just a click but a click hold count a second then look at it."
_
"Only complaints would be awkward button placement on headphones."
_
"Some complain about mistakenly hitting the buttons."
_
"Only downside is that I push the mode button when I put them on if I'm not careful how I grab them."
_
"The only downside really is that there is so much you can do and push ... sometimes you accidentally push the wrong buttons while trying to push other buttons ... but once you have them figured out they are that much better."
_
"Comfort: 8.5 10Sound: 9 10User Friendly - 10 10 - most buttons require that you hold it for at least 1 second and they are dead serious, the power button for instance is not just a click but a click hold count a second then look at it."
_
"So, if you dont mind reading the handbook and keeping all the buttons and what they do memorized then you will love this, but if you are looking for a simple headset you may want to look for something else."
_
"Very good and it's got a lot of buttons all over it but it picks up all kinds of noises."
_
"Those headsets do not compare to this in anyway, let me start out by saying I did extensive hours of research through blogs reviews online and found the Tritton Detonator to be the best bang for your buck for under $100, why buy the Tritton Triggers - they have less power and less buttons to handle your voice and receive them as well."
_
"And cycling though the different EQ presets is as easy as pressing and holding the button for 1 2 a second."

Cable

Cable:
"Do yourself a favor and just grab one from Amazon which is WAY MORE ROBUST with a THICKER cable - depending on where you place it you may wish for a longer cable - the one that came for it in my opinion is too short and of terrible quality."
_
"I didn't even remove the cable and the jack broke."
_
"They broke from the bridge when I took them off and the control cable is so cheap that one of the jacks broke inside."
_
"Unfortunately the Xbox 360E doesn't have an optical cable connection."
_
"The only downside was the price and the fact that you had to plug in a chat cord."
_
"Easy to connect to the cablebox for my father-in-law who is hard of hearing and hates cables."
_
"They do offer the rca cables but i dont beleve it will sound as good but im sure they wont sound bad."
_
"My console is hooked up to my TV via HDMI which carries a Dolby digital 5.1 sound signal so I ran the optical cable from my TV's output to the stand and that was all I had to do, the sound is really good."
_
"Setup was easy, the directions pretty thorough, in like 5 languages, had all the necessary cables and connectors, (again very high quality),I have the newer E series box so I couldn't plug the optical cable directly to my box."
_
"Do yourself a favor and just grab one from Amazon which is WAY MORE ROBUST with a THICKER cable - depending on where you place it you may wish for a longer cable - the one that came for it in my opinion is too short and of terrible quality."

_
"No screw driver or crazy tool needed the battery cover is a magnetic design so it is easy to take off, pull the dead batt, replace, and insert dead batt into the base charger."
_
"- The last problem is similar to the last on in that the play and charge cable the charges a controller via usb causes a constant feedback hum over the headset to the point where they are unusable."
_
"Comes with two batteries (one is always charging) and the battery life is great."
_
"The stand for display and for charging is excellent."
_
"A nice caveat was not only the charging station built into the base, but also that it came with two rechargeable batteries."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"My friends say I sound normal throught the mic (which is a problem I've had with some other headsets) and they are comfortable."
_
"Really like the mike for me the headphones are over ear and it's very comfortable but I've had some technical problems when playing like it'll just randomly start making static sounds then stop and sometimes I have to completely unplug everything and put it all back together"
_
"Bad Things- Not the best comfort depending on who you are- Earcups are a little small- Bass needs a tiny boost- Strictly Xbox compatible only- No SVM, which my be a problem for some- Talk back cable is puck-shaped (can only use on Microsoft branded controllers)Overall, if you are looking into buying your first headset, I highly recommend the Tritton Trigger."
_
"I was initially disappointed by the plastic finish on the earpieces, but its overall comfort, and subsequently discovered toughness won me over."
_
"I got the A50's home and I was mildly disappointed that there was a chat wire and that the stand seemed a bit flimsy for a $300 set but that headset was sooooo comfortable that I was willing to overlook a few details."
_
"The only down sides are that it won't work with PC as well, and the ear cuffs are not comfortable at all."
_
"Comfortable fit, great sound and chat, good distance."
_
"They are durable and comfortable."
_
"Very nice and comfortable headset!"
_
"Pros: great sound, comfortable ear cups."
_
"All the EQ's sounds good and they are so comfortable to wear"

Connection

Connection:
"headset is great but mic is horrible due 2 the fact that it doesnt stay connected well an makes loud static noises as its coming loose i taped mine on an that solved the problem"
_
"Unfortunately the Xbox 360E doesn't have an optical cable connection."
_
"Turns out the whole thing that connected on the main PC board was broken, and unusable."
_
"There easy to set up with any 360 (HDMI SETUP OR NO HDMI SETUP) The wifi connection between the receiver and the headset is ridiculous!"
_
"Great for hdmi connected xbox comes with everything you need"
_
"headset is great but mic is horrible due 2 the fact that it doesnt stay connected well an makes loud static noises as its coming loose i taped mine on an that solved the problem"
_
"Works well but some of the connections are bad after a couple years of constant use."
_
"Anyone share a comment if you dont have any problems if connected via digital optical cable for surround where enemy footsteps coming from."
_
"You also need a usb connection to your xbox, as well as all the wires to the headset itself."

Connector

Connector:
"I didn't even remove the cable and the jack broke."
_
"They broke from the bridge when I took them off and the control cable is so cheap that one of the jacks broke inside."
_
"- Now, the most important thing to mention here (a question never answered to me when I asked about it) is that it can work with Xbox360, PS3, BluRay player or any other peripheral attached to your TV (Chat will only work for xbox360 though with a cable that attaches to the xbox360 controller which is fine too and not a big deal since i only play Live using the xbox360).To be able to use the headset for all consoles, you must attach the audio cables to the TV out RCA cables and not the xbox360 plug, also another thing to mention here that you can attach it also to the Headphones Jack of your TV but this is not recommended because using the Headphones jack gave me a clear sound but without the BASS, while using the TV RCA Out gave the correct sound output with BASS like normal."
_
"PROS+$ 70 is a fair pricedeep bassclear highsthe construction is good not the bestsleek designSVMCONS-This is a stereo set with a 3.5mm jack but it's not compatible with all the devices."
_
"Despite that this is a pretty awesome headset, be forewarned about the connector for the headset!"
_
"I am pretty sure we can find a headset connector for the controller.."
_
"I'm new to the Optical audio cable and it's pretty short (3 ft maybe) and very curly so it never wanted to stay put while I reach behind the entertainment center to plug it in, although there is a supplied option to also use analog connectors as well."
_
"The best feature is that it connects with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, so it also works as a regular pair of headphones in any mp3 player, phone, etc."
_
"ie=UTF8&qid;=1363900664&sr;=8-22&keywords;=3.5mm+male+to+2.5mm+male+jackIf you have a gaming controller that needs another type of jack use this one it's pretty much the same thing."

Controller

Controller:
"Actually, the only minor complaint I have is that I have to take my hand off of the controller in order to mute the mic whereas before (because it was wired to the headset) I could mute the mic in milliseconds with my hands remaining on the controller - the same goes for the chat volume."
_
"Incompatible with non micro$oft controllers."
_
"I am using a wired controller and am being told that this is the reason why I have this problem."
_
"It must be either the headset or my controller and many other people had this problem once I'd googled it."
_
"But why i wrote this review is because the cord that sends the voice into the controller broke it broke internally and i thought it would be fine because they offer it on there web site but the problem is that they dont offer it for the U. S."
_
"First, I would have to plug my controller in, to talk, if I didn't I wouldn't be able to talk, then if the controller was plugged in, it would make a very loud beeping sound."
_
"I am pretty sure we can find a headset connector for the controller.."
_
"This item does have a pros, like I enjoy how the mic works, as well as how it connects to the controller."
_
"these are the best gaming headphones ive ever had and would recommend them to anyone who wants something easy to use and wants great audio quality that come wireless, no controller to headphone plug in; sleek and smooth and easy to use 12 10."
_
"I installed the good battery and discovered paired controller headset station etc."
_
"Well guess what...you do have to connect to your controller in order to chat while you play."

Cord

Cord:
"The major problem with it is their is way too many cords."
_
"Although, the cords are a hassle there to long!"
_
"And frankly I never liked the wired ones because of all the cords."
_
"Only downside, lots of cords to deal with for a 7 year old."
_
"the cords you connect to the xbox are pretty short but got them to work."
_
"I would give this headset 5 stars if the cords were not so annoying that hang off of the headset, and it would be nice if there was a clip or some way to attach the volume adjustment to your pants or something because it constantly falls off of my lap while playing and it's annoying when it just hangs there."
_
"It has no cords, and you can hear people coming behind you with ease."
_
"so many cords but one very great thing about this head set the sound that u think that u would never get through a head set, but u do with the trittion."
_
"Works good, sounds great and wireless is awesome on these, no cords unlike Turtle Beach"

Cover

Cover:
"Since the head phones cover your entire ear it might be hard to hear anything around you."
_
"I don't think it was made to totally cover your ears and if you tried I could see them getting very uncomfortable like mentioned in the other reviews."
_
"They should be more durable over time, though the cover may come off if dropped."
_
"I love the magnetic battery covers on both the headset and the base."
_
"The cover for the battery charging compartment is magnetic and easy to use, unlike what someone else stated in their review."
_
"The spare battery charges in the docking station for an easy swap and the battery cover on the phones and the dock are magnetic, so no fumbling with little plastic clips for access."
_
"No screw driver or crazy tool needed the battery cover is a magnetic design so it is easy to take off, pull the dead batt, replace, and insert dead batt into the base charger."

Gaming

Gaming:
"These headphones are not comfortable for more than 45 min of gaming."
_
"I have a home recording studio, I record and mix hip hop music, I'm familiar with GOOD headphones... for the price, these things sound excellent, as good as many more expensive brands... the sound is crystal clear, with a healthy low end and crisp highs with no mud in the middle... the simulated surround effect is fairly accurate, and really gives a good spatial experience in games... the detailed background sound effects come through nicely... the chat is clean and sharp, easily controlled by an inline control wheel... the mic is very strong, I typically have it below my chin and in front of my throat, and it's projected loud and clear without need to talk above a normal speaking level... overall, I couldn't be more pleased with these... they're a perfect gaming headphone set, why spend more?"
_
"I haven't owned a good set of gaming headphones till now -- again, casual gamer -- so I didn't wanna spend three figures for a set... these were in the right price range..."
_
"Felt the headset was too tight on the head and was uncomfortable after a few hours of gaming."
_
"The only negative I can say is they are a little heavy but when I'm gaming with friends, I don't even know I have them on."
_
"(I needed it because I'm in an apartment with roommates who don't appreciate gaming."
_
"These are absolutely some of the most comfortable headphones I've ever had (gaming headset, regular audio headphones, whatever).Mic Quality - I never had any complaints with respect to mic quality."
_
"Having an extra set of rechargeable batteries is important for long gaming sessions, and the mike is great too."
_
"Awesome Headphones perfect for gaming without wires."
_
"The turtle beach X12 is the #1 selling wired gaming headset, and for good reason."
_
"Purchased for my son, shipping was fast and he and his friend love them for gaming."

Hdmi

Hdmi:
"I also found it very easy to set up, (I use HDMI, so I don't know how it is for the other ways) The only downside I could think of is the mic has to sit on the left side, the bendy part of the mic sits on an arm that flips down on the left side only."
_
"It's not really Tritton's fault, but with some huevos, they could design one for the HDMI crowd (which I'd guess is the growing trend of hook-up... dunno).The bottom line:These are about as simple as you can find and they work well with HDMI hookup."
_
"Ill make it simple Pros:Nice designDetachable micSvm switchComes with hdmi adapterSomewhat sound cancellationCons:Very weak mic ( I am a loud person but terrible mic )Cheap plasticSvm doesn't work wellleather gets hotOverall i wouldn't buy these for the price of ($30+) ( i got these for $50) I returned these after the second dayI return these because of the poor mic you literally have to have the mic a 1 2 inch away from you mic for people to hear you and still people could barley hear you I bought these because my turtle beaches mic had a short ( after 11 months) I will be buying turtle beach x12s"
_
";) Last thing i want to say is i was happy it came with everything i needed to set up with my HDMI tv, i was kinda worried id have to buy an extra part but nope everything was there!"
_
"Great for hdmi connected xbox comes with everything you need"
_
"Everything works nice and you can hook it up with HDMI or component."
_
"Pros:- Easy setup (similar to the X12s)- Comes with an HDMI audio cable to replace the ones you start out with for the 360."
_
"If this is the case with your equipment, please refer to the diagram on how toconnect your headset.1.Connect an HDMI cable from the Xbox 360 to the TV or AV Receiver HDMI input2.Connect an optical cable to the optical output on the TV or AV Receiver3.Connect the other end of the optical cable to the optical input on the headset decoder box."

_
"Instead of stopping rotation at the max or min of the volume dials, it continues to rotate after you've reached max or min levels which makes it a bit annoying to find the right levels again if you need to adjust your volume."
_
"the sound quality is terrible and its hard to find a good volume level."
_
"But all-in-all, it's a pretty good entry level headset, or a substation for a broken one."

"Alot of people on these reviews say theres a buzzing and I agree....If your deaf you probably would hear it more but i put the level of volume at comfort until i realized the power coming form my xbox was not properly controlled."

_
"Especially when certain games have such awesome background music or great narrative that it's annoying to have someone being really loud over the chat."
_
"Now when it comes to chat you just need to lower the chat settings on the xbox360 to 3 and ull be good, higher than that is a little to loud and makes distortion."

Music:
"Especially when certain games have such awesome background music or great narrative that it's annoying to have someone being really loud over the chat."
_
"Listening to songs like I am all of Me by Crush 40 or Higher Ground by the Red Hot Chili Peppers shows off how good the Warheads are for music Overall, for stereo, it is good, but not as good as the A50, and to an extent, the XP500."
_
"The EQ Settings change the Dynamic Range and Compression of AudioNow that you know how exactly the Warhead works, take a look at the results:Music:Definitely the worst of the three EQ settings."

Performance

Performance:
"But, when you fail miserably at the primary function the product should perform, as I feel this headset did, only 2 stars I believe is warranted."
_
"The sound quality and or performance is very very good but the build quality is pathetic."
_
"However, I've found that these will perform well to about 25 feet from the xbox though not through walls."

Plug

Plug:
"The only downside was the price and the fact that you had to plug in a chat cord."
_
"The problem is when anything gets unplugged while the Xbox is on you have to plug it back in and restart your console for it to work again, also the connection is a bit much."
_
"First, I would have to plug my controller in, to talk, if I didn't I wouldn't be able to talk, then if the controller was plugged in, it would make a very loud beeping sound."
_
"I do kind of wish the other end that plugs into the headset didn't stick straight down, as I am worried about breaking it on my shoulder or something, but again it's pretty sturdy."
_
"- When I plug in my charge-n-play while my headset is plugged in I get a nasty hiss in the headphones until I remove the charge-n-play."

"TERRIBLE quality."
_
"I game professionally and the sound quality was horrible to the point where i felt deaf."
_
"We are both very happy that I did... they are hard to figure out at first but the sound and the quality of the headphones are worth the money! "
_
"Do yourself a favor and just grab one from Amazon which is WAY MORE ROBUST with a THICKER cable - depending on where you place it you may wish for a longer cable - the one that came for it in my opinion is too short and of terrible quality."
_
"It's not perfect, but for the price and its quality, you'd be hard pressed to find a better deal."

Setup

Setup:
"The Tritton Warhead 7.1 Dolby has great sound and range, but the setup and use is somewhat confusing."
_
"There easy to set up with any 360 (HDMI SETUP OR NO HDMI SETUP) The wifi connection between the receiver and the headset is ridiculous!"
_
"My only complaint would have to be the wiring setup, it is setup quite strange."
_
"Ease of setup and use has been great for the Xbox 360."
_
"Setup was easy, the directions pretty thorough, in like 5 languages, had all the necessary cables and connectors, (again very high quality),I have the newer E series box so I couldn't plug the optical cable directly to my box."
_
"The Tritton Warhead 7.1 Dolby has great sound and range, but the setup and use is somewhat confusing."

"There weren't a ton of options, and the speakers were pretty small, so it never got very clear."
_
"The headphones were small and verry uncomfortable for my ears."
_
"The ear pieces however are very small compared to turtle beaches and are INSANELY UNCOMFORTABLE!"
_
"My only complaint is that the ear cups are just a little small...like they are designed around a child's ears and not an average sized adult."
_
"So, he had to to adjust the size, and he said that the way they sat on his ears was uncomfortable."
_
"- The ear pieces Headset size is about the standard head size, it fits my head fine and it's a little tight around my ears, but when u get used to it it's fine, maybe for larger head size it can be annoying."

Speaker

Speaker:
"There weren't a ton of options, and the speakers were pretty small, so it never got very clear."
_
"I think that was just the speakers being broken in because now I'm not hearing it."
_
"The only draw backs I see is the 40mm speakers, I tried my friends X12 (which are broke now) and the ear cups covered my ear completly which I enjoy."
_
"For this kind of money, speaker failure should not be an issue."
_
"There were times where they got a little uncomfortable but I liked that I could twist the speakers around and hang it on my neck, the flexibility of the mic helped make this easier to do also."
_
"Today my left speaker went out *again* with the same problems as before."
_
"If the some of the parts were built with some sturdyness and the speakers didn't ring I wold recommend these."
_
"Simple and reliable and no batteries to changeAmplified audio (USB powered plugs into Xbox)Separate chat and game volume controls (Plays game sound and teammate chat through both speakers)Stereo sound (all have good sound quality)Similar hook up to Xbox (RCA cables with optional chat wire to Xbox controller)Still with me, OK."
_
"If the seller could help me with that then it would be perfect, Other then that this headset is great you can actually can connect your speakers through your headphone port and have a completely different experience of a movie"
_
"It had good speakers but every time i recorded with it on my mac i always heard a weird statick."
_
"Then I got an idea to try: I moved the supplied adapter from the Xbox connection to the main Audio Out port of the switchbox so now all devices plugged into the switch box not only push audio to the home theater speakers but to this headset as well."

Static

Static:
"all that created was create even more static and feedback into the mic which is extremely irritating for your friends."
_
"I would give it five stars but they have a static noise in the background it could be my fault but i dont know."
_
"They have updated their support site to show that people just need to talk normally to prevent this audio static, because it's our fault."
_
"It would make a static noise and it was so frustrating that I threw it out."
_
"***NOTE: Many people are having problems w static break up from the volume being too loud(particularly in chat)."
_
"that was just out of the question for me.. this is 5.8 ghz compared to the 2.nothin' ghz of the turtle beach... i have experienced 0 static or interference .. i even walk into the kitchen between matches to get a brew( way beyond the distance specified) and i could still hear everything crystal clear.. the head set is powered as well with 2 AA batteries.. i have been using the same set for over 2weeks and still have not had to change them.. also.. one of the coolest things, i think anyway, is that the sound comes right out of the xbox .. so you can have the TV tuned all the way down as to not annoy your significant other.. or turn it up so that your friends that don't have the head set can hear everything as well... and as i mentioned before, you can adjust them where you can hear your buddy just fine as well as the gameplay sounds... i have read another complaint about static.. which prompted me to write this review... no static for me..not sure if there batteries where going dead.. or had some wires crossed ... i'm using the newest xbox 360;; so i don't know if that makes a difference ... i'm not saying there are not better ones out there(like the ones with Dolby surround sound) this set seems very surround sound to me.. i can always hear what side someone is coming up on or firing from.. which is pretty cool... i just don't see how it could get much better than this.. everything else kinda seems like a waste of money to go Dolby.. it is like they're charging you another 50 bucks for a name.. i hope this is helpful to some people .... i did not want people to buy a product just cause it has MW3 or what ever on it, and that's what you must use.. most importantly shop around try on what your friends are using ask people at game stores and remember you can always return something that doesn't work for you .. never settle... as for me i have found my set."

"Listening to songs like I am all of Me by Crush 40 or Higher Ground by the Red Hot Chili Peppers shows off how good the Warheads are for music Overall, for stereo, it is good, but not as good as the A50, and to an extent, the XP500."

Surround:
"You will not be able to set up 7.1 Dolby Surround if you are using it with a PC."
_
"To make a long story short, they sent me the WRONG headset back (the TRITTON 720+ 7.1 Surround Headset for Xbox 360 and PS3 - White), told me I could keep that headset when I told them about the mistake (kudos to them for that), and then they sent me a replacement Warhead 7.1 headset."

"The bass isn't as good as I was expecting but they're not 5.1 surround sound."
_
"despite not being 5.1 7.1 surround, I was able to tell directional sound with ease."

_
"Overall the Tritton Warhead 7.1 dolby surround sound is a good strong headset! "

Video

Video:
"While being able to remove the microphone from the Detonator when using the headset to listen to music movies, it doesn't make up for the fact that the mic is disappointing."

_
"NICE... Connects to XBox1 for TV, games, movies, etc."
_
"The X12 also has a base boost feature which is nice for movies."
_
"These are about as good as you can get for Video Game wireless headphones."

Voice:
"The product had many errors: wouldn't sync, voice wouldn't work, couldn't hear other peoples voice."
_
"The headphones that have broken can still output game volume, but the microphone and voice output have broken due to the wire."
_
"Unfortunately the Triggers lack voice monitoring, a feature that their higher tiered headset (Detonator) contains, really holds it back."
_
"The mic was easily detachable and did not have the best voice quality."
_
"They are super uncomfortable, the microphone doesn't pick up your voice when you talk and every time is does pick up your voice there is an annoying buzzing sound on the other end."
_
"Everything is great except for the mic it doesn't pick up my voice that good"
_
"Cons:- The mic doesn't pick up my voice as well as the X12s."
_
"The X12s were able to pick up my voice from a further distance with a lower volume voice."
_
"While I do feel the Detonators are more sturdy and more aesthetically appealing than the X12s, the X12s just have the much needed bass control as well as a mic that does a good job at picking up voices from further away."
_
"Those headsets do not compare to this in anyway, let me start out by saying I did extensive hours of research through blogs reviews online and found the Tritton Detonator to be the best bang for your buck for under $100, why buy the Tritton Triggers - they have less power and less buttons to handle your voice and receive them as well."
