Tritton AXPC Headset
Tritton on Monday expanded its gamer headsets and launched the AXPC. It trades the universal support of the console-friendly AX360 for simplicity, the company says. Native 5.1 surround sound as well as voice chat are piped through a single USB cable, and a smart encoder can optionally turn stereo sound into as much as a 7.1-channel signal. Audio quality is said to be powerful with four drivers per ear cup and the ability to fine-tune the volume of each channel layer.
The AXPC works with virtually any computer that supports USB audio out, including Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows systems. Pricing is unavailable for the headset but should be available when it ships to stores in the near future. [via I4U]
