Although for the past 7 years or so i have used countless stereo, virtual surround and "true" surround headsets i have to confess that nothing beats an dedicated 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround sound set in terms of positioning audio, clarity, volume levels and comfort especially if you plan on spending many hours in front of the screen. Still i can't deny that headsets can be extremely useful especially when you are using it with multiplayer games (mainly because it's easier to speak with your teammates) or you just don't want to intrude on the privacy of those around you and vice versa. I guess that's also why most people i know own headsets that they use with their computers, however the same does not apply for people with gaming consoles such as the Microsoft XBOX 360 mainly because there aren't as many fully compatible headsets out in the market which is also why today we will be taking a look at the Detonator Stereo Headset by TRITTON.
TRITTON™ was founded in 2000 and has since evolved and transformed into a brand that is recognized worldwide. Best known for our critically acclaimed high performance gaming Headsets and USB External Video Card Technology. In 2010, Tritton was acquired by Mad Catz Interactive. The Tritton brand has focused extensively on developing industry leading headsets for all gaming platforms including an exclusive range for the Xbox 360. Tritton performance headsets are available globally. TRITTON™ is focused on developing, manufacturing, and bringing to market high-performance gaming headsets and audio peripherals. Striving to create innovative and reliable products with cutting edge technology, the Tritton is the brand of choice for professional and casual gamers world-wide .
TRITTON has designed and manufactured several award-winning and best-selling headsets (they also released some of the first "true" 5.1 ones) so it really comes as no surprise that a larger company like Mad Catz would show interest for them and finally acquire them roughly 3 years ago. Since then TRITTON has gained even more ground in the market and currently has several line of products available most of which are aimed towards PC and console gamers. The Detonator Stereo Headset is one of those products and comes ready with all the cables you will need to connect it to your XBOX 360 in under a minute. It also features two 50mm neodymium drivers (25Hz-20KHz), a removable and quite flexible noise-cancelling microphone, selectable voice monitoring (SVM) and an in-line volume controller with separate game/voice controls. So far all of the headsets I’ve used by TRITTON have performed very well but since the Detonator Stereo Headset is the first stereo one in my hands by them I’m very curious to see just how good it really is.
