Tritton’s Trigger headset is a wired gaming headset for the Xbox 360 gaming system that allows players to enjoy full stereo quality audio, whilst maintaining clear communications with friends. The headset allows players to immerse themselves in a world of higher quality gaming, as enhanced audio ensures they stay at the top of their game, whether it be Minecraft or Call of Duty.
The actual headset is pretty light, which makes a great change from some of the other gaming headsets out there. It also boasts a slick style that is hard to hate, making you feel that little bit cooler as you sit playing games, whether it be alone, or in a room blanking your real life company.
The Trigger headset combines both video-game and live chat audio, bridging the gap between television and the controller. This combination really adds to the immersive experience, as stereo sound makes it a lot easier to place yourself within the game. This higher awareness is something that is particularly handy if you’re directing allies, whilst trying to survive in an FPS title, as the headset allows you to pick up and locate sounds of movement at a much faster rate.
The headset also provides players with separate audio controls for the in-game and microphone sounds. This is pretty handy if you find you’re having trouble hearing your team, or just want to tune out completely, as you’re sick of that 12 year old who apparently just learnt to swear. I thought this was a great move, as it really did allow me to maintain my gaming experience without wrenching a headset from my head just to avoid garbled mumblings of other players.
As with many wired headsets, Tritton’s Trigger headset falls a little short due to the sheer amount of cables it requires. The headset comes attached to a tv input cable, with option to also attach it to the controller. Unfortunately this will lead to some awkward moments if you have an OCD for clutter, as the cabling takes up nearly as much space as the headed itself!
Past the cabling issues, the Trigger headset is an awesome piece of kit that will definitely please any player who decides to make use of it. The audio coming and going out make for a better experience, as you’ll find that it’s not just you who is receiving messages clearer, but also friends, as you instantly become easier to hear. Of course, it’s not just about chat either, as the stereo audio really does provide a high level of immersion.
