Perhaps the most compelling reason to pick up Mad Catz's TRITTON Pro+ 5.1 headset is because it will provide you with 5.1 surround sound on both PC and consoles as they use multiple speakers as opposed to emulation software. Along with the headset comes a physical audio decoder that allows you far more control than just changing the volume, there are delay settings, dynamic range controls and other options. Just having all of these choices doesn't make this a great headset which is why Mad Shrimps unpackaged them for testing so head on over and see if the actual product is as good as the features imply.
"The new, revised TRITTON Pro+ 5.1 Surround Headset from Mad Catz comes with a redesigned decoder box which features multiple options, one in-line remote for adjusting volumes on each channel, SVM, voice or Master Volume, but also a removable microphone. The shape of the headset has been also tweaked so now it is more comfortable and the cups can be rotated 90 degrees."
