Tritton PC510 HDa Gaming Headset Review

Recently there have been lots of similar looking gaming style headsets released which quite frankly have all been the same. The headsets are either stereo headsets, or headsets pretending to offer 5.1 or even 7.1 surround sound. While all the companies producing these surround sound headsets will claim that they give you the full surround sound feel, it is at best, virtual and produced digitally. When you stop and think about it, does it seem possible for 5.1 surround sound to be played through 2 speakers? While it may not be truly possible they certainly give it a good go.

Tritton certainly seem to think that there is only one way to produce 5.1 surround sound and that is the same way that home-cinema systems do it. This is to have a speaker or two playing each channel independently, normally giving you the two front speakers, the two rear speakers and a centre speaker, as well as the subwoofer or bass speaker. 7.1 has the additional ‘side speakers’. Tritton have in this headset tried to make this a reality by producing a headset which does contain the full 5.1 speaker set-up.

Tritton are a company owned by Mad Catz who aim to bring high-performance consumer electronics and computer peripherals to the market. They are best known for their gaming headsets but specialise in several categories, including Gaming Audio, Mobile Audio, USB Video Technology as well as Bluetooth Technology.

    "Another few inches might have made all the difference"

    That, sir, is what she said. But it's a valid point – I guess the only answer is to wear a shirt with a top pocket in which to stick the remote. There's quite a few stereo headsets that also have a short remote-to-headset cable, but their remotes are lighter.

    Use a Sound Device Changer for a one click between your speakers and headset. This will let you leave the headset plugged in at all times.

    Great review btw!

    “will claim that they give you the full surround sound feel, it is at best, virtual and produced digitally.”
    It does feel like surround sound and it is virtually created. That’s not as great as real surround sound but its not a negative either.

    “Tritton certainly seem to think that there is only one way to produce 5.1 surround sound and that is the same way that home-cinema systems do it. ”
    Wrong, Tritton also has virtual 7.1 headsets they sell, along with stereo.

    “Taking a look at the headset itself in more detail, both ear cups have a large illuminated Tritton logo which glows red when on, but powers down when turned down or not plugged in. ”
    Actually they glow white… >.>

    “…it doesn’t use any fancy converters or dolby digital decoders it just uses pure raw 5.1 surround sound and this is not tweaked, tuned or adjusted it is just played as the pure sound.”
    Just to clarify for everyone what Dolby Digital technology does I’ll explain. I specifically does only one thing, it compresses the audio channels to be able to fit them through optical, and this is actually pretty much loss-less. The only thing to note here is that AXPro users have reported hearing digital decompression noises from the low quality amp box. With a decent home system that wouldn’t be an issue.
