Aural acuity is paramount when it comes to situational awareness in
any game these days. Unfortunately sound isn’t the problem with this
latest headset from Razer.
Razer has been catering to gamers with a variety of peripherals for a long time. Such dedication to an obsessively meticulous crowd demands countless hours researching and developing new products. This latest headset however is neither an original creation of Razer, nor has it been properly tested to make sure the product is even comfortable. Perhaps there are some out there that have absolutely no problems with the design of the Razer Piranha. I’d like to argue that they’re a bit masochistic in their endeavor to get quality audio.
Today we’re going to go over Tritton Technologies’ two “5.1” headsets, the AXPC and the AX360. Do they really stand up to other “5.1” headphones or are they just another dead corpse along the consumer electronics highway.
This past summer it seemed that everyone and their mom had their own take on “5.1” headphones. We saw Audio Technica, Turtle Beach and numerous others release this “revolutionary new technology”, which in some cases seemed like nothing more than smoke and mirrors combined with stone-age electronics. Among the competitors, there were a fair share of duds and an equal amount of sets that really shined among the rest.
