Pump up the volume: Tritton AX360 “rumble?” headphone

The Tritton GA-600 AX360: huh, you were saying something?When you read the specs for Tritton‘s TRI-GA600 AX360 Gaming Headphones, you’re going to wonder if your ears can take it. Dolby Digital and Pro Logic compliant with the Xbox, Xbox 360, PS2, PS3, PC, Mac, and DVD players, the AX360 features no less than FOUR different speakers in each cup. If you think that’s overkill, those speakers are labelled “Front,” “Rear,” Center,” and “Subwoofer” and can be individually adjusted through an external 5.1 audio controller. And finally, Tritton claims an “integrated rumble effect” built into the headphones.

The net effect of these seems to be akin to bolting a couple of subwoofers to your ear and then playing J-kwon’s “Tipsy” at max volume. The rumble effect is not really a gimmick – it’s meant to help amplify, or more accurately, to simulate the deep bass from a quality subwoofer. The AX360 will vibrate in reaction to low-frequency sounds. “The effect is surprisingly successful at mimicking the aftershock of big woofer moving lots of air,” says TeamXbox in their appraisal of the product.

The headset would not be complete without a quality microphone (Xbox Live-compatible). This bolt-subs-to-your-ears will set you back a total of, on average, US$ 130.00, but that includes the Audio Controller box and its power adapter, and a bunch of other important cables. That box can support additional “secondary” headsets, each a still rather whopping US$ 59.99, but that’s the price of “Tipsy” turning your ears to mush.
