AX360: Dolby 5.1 headset with microphone

TRITTON AX360 Headphones

Game players who want private listening environments are familiar with compromise. Voice chat in games is best served by microphone headsets, but these sets either treat voice as a separate channel or else strip the audio of its better qualities, especially surround sound. TRITTON says its new AX360 headphones are perfect for listeners who would prefer not to sacrifice sound for conversation. Four speakers in each ear cup position sound dynamically in front or behind of the listener without requiring special support; the new headphones are Dolby 2.1 and 5.1 certified and use Dolby Pro Logic for sources that virtualize their surround sound. At the same time, the AX360 also includes a detachable microphone boom that works with Xbox Live's voice feature as well as voice chat in most Mac and Windows software. The only special requirement is a digital co-ax or optical audio jack on consoles; computer sound cards with 5.1 connections are also supported. The new design is shipping now for $150.
