    With the introduction of its AX 720 7.1 virtual surround headset and stablemate AX Pro discrete 5.1 surround headset, gaming manufacturer Tritton acknowledged that its audience is split into two distinct camps when it comes to those all-important rear and side channels. Whilst the AX Pro housed four individual speakers in each earpiece that ranged from a 30mm sub down to a 23mm speaker for the center channel, the AX 720 placed its faith in stereo 40mm speakers working in conjunction with Dolby’s software to produce its enveloping surround soundscape. The results were pretty decent too, with those faked-out rear and side channels proving a welcome substitute for the slightly tinny 30mm drivers in its more expensive cousin.

    This new version of the 720 (minus the AX and with a + tacked on to signify change), increases the size of the speaker in each earpiece to 50mm and also throws in a range of tweaks and alterations to what was an already popular and highly customisable setup. The USB-powered control box takes a standard optical audio cable as its primary input, meaning that you can hook it up in a matter of minutes to any Xbox, PS3 or modern PC that you have lying around.

    A range of included adaptors covers most other connectivity demands that you might have, and if you’ve got an older system and another ten minutes to spare you’ll be able to hook yourself up through a standard 3.5mm audio jack and utilise a variety of microphone sources for that all-important in-game chat

    You can pretty much throw any source at it then, and the 720+ will likely respond positively. Being a jack-of-all-trades isn’t always the best path towards a quality product however, so once you’ve gotten the 720+ hooked up to your tastes, is it still a good fit for a hardcore gaming audience? With a few reservations, absolutely.

    If there’s one area in which the Tritton brand seems to be moving forward year-on-year, it’s that of presentation and packaging. From the understated box (understated by gaming standards, anyway), to the sleek plastic and cardboard innards, the 720+ is a product that – although not reeking of high-end manufacturing – manages to pitch itself firmly in the mid-to-high bracket of gaming peripherals, with a pleasing look and feel to almost every component.

    Delving into the contents, the orange box presents you with the headset itself, along with a USB-powered receiver and a host of peripherals that will allow for connection to a wide range of devices. Although the primary input of the 720+ is a standard optical socket, the included breakout adaptor means you’ll be able to hook up any HDMI-enabled Xbox 360 as well. You could also use the combined USB and 3.5mm audio jack cable to connect up any device with a standard headphone and/or microphone socket. As long as you can get USB power, you’re good to go.

    To complete the package, the 720+ ships with Tritton’s standard flexible microphone that locks into the left earpiece, along with a cable adaptor to attach it to your Xbox 360 controller. Playstation 3 and PC owners running through the USB receiver simply need to select the appropriate device from their system and calibrate as necessary – no extra wires required.

    Got these yesterday and used them all night long. They are crazy comfortable. The padding on your ears and head is nice and thick and soft. The boom mic feels substantial. The sound quality on the mic and speakers is great. The plug is standard headphone jack. The cord is cloth wrapped and has a control box built onto it for volume and muting the mic. Great to have for gaming. Tritton Headset 721 are really nice for the price.

    Very clear in game audio. I could wear these for hours, very comfortable and lightweight. The removable Mic is great when not needed.
