Conclusion

The Tritton Pro+ True 5.1 Headset has so many things to like it’s hard to list them all. The Pro+ has a sturdy build quality but is not so heavy to cause neck fatigue. Styling is simplistic yet sleek and is available in multiple colors to match your other accessories. Large ear cups encompass the entire ear with thick soft foam to provide maximum comfort. Four speakers in each ear cup allows for clear sound reproduction because each speaker has a dedicated range unlike virtual surround or emulated headsets that get distorted at higher volumes. Adjustable ear cups, adjustable headset rest and adjustable mic allow you to get a perfect fit every time.

Sound quality from the Pro+ is really amazing and can be used for music, movies, video chat Skype and, of course, gaming. It isn’t just FPS games which benefit from the Pro+. RPGs like DarkSiders 2 and Final Fantasy can have their game play expanded by hearing hidden sounds you probably never picked up on before. The orchestra type music really fills the room to further immerse you into the world. Battle scenes are just outstanding!

I did get a slight humming noise when using the Pro+ but after researching the issue I found out, it was because of my PC. It is called a ground loop. Ground loops are created by improperly designed or improperly installed equipment. They are frequently a major cause of noise and interference in audio and video systems. In my case, it is all of the fans and water cooling gear in my PC. If you can’t find the source of your ground loop you can purchase a ground loop isolator to rectify the problem.

With a price of $129.99 in the US and $139.99 in Canada, the Pro+ True 5.1 headset fits right into the price bracket for 5.1 surround headsets for the PC. Few of those can also be used for Xbox360 and PS3 too. If you already have the Xbox360 and PS3 version of the Pro+, this headset can connect to the digital controller box for some dual headset action. I told you the features just keep on coming! This is one of many reasons we will be giving the Tritton Pro+ True 5.1 Headset our Pureoverclock Editors Choice Award.

    This is undoubtedly the best blue tooth headset I have ever owned. I love it, and you will love it for multiple reasons. http://www.jabra.com/Products/Bluetooth/JABRA_WAVE/Jabra_WAVE

    1) It wont fall of your ear and it isn’t annoying. Its very ergonomic and you will forget its there, it doesn’t feel like something hanging from your ear.

    2) Battery Life is amazing, better than my previous two Motorola’s

    3) No one on the other end will ask for you to take them off speaker phone. Its very natural sounding.

    4) The sound is crystal clear and the bud isn’t jammed inside of your ear.

    5) Easy to take on and off your ear, and will not fall off when you bend over.
