Gaming headsets are a dime a dozen these days, but names like Turtle Beach and Tritton continue to produce goods that are a cut above the rest. Now, Mad Catz is announcing the Tritton Pro+ True 5.1 Surround Sound Headset, which is billed as the update to the Tritton AX Pro. It supports both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, with shipments expected to start next month. The Pro+ offers up 5.1 surround sound through eight separate drives. Moreover, there's a redesigned inline Remote and Selectable Voice Monitoring (SVM), allowing users to choose if they hear their own voice in the headset. Price of admission? $200.

Flagship Multi-Format Headset Features Advanced Speaker Separation And Improved Design

San Diego – August 16, 2012 – Mad Catz Interactive, Inc.

That looks pretty nifty, but we need different colors, imo. I'm tired of white, and I'm sure many others are too.

Still, it looks very nice, and true 5.1 is never a bad thing. Corsair Vengeance 1500/2000 are great headsets but the surround is software based, and you can tell.

Color isn't nearly as important as performance, and if this is really a mind-boggling headset I don't care what color it is.

The Triton brand is somewhat new to me, i have used Technica headphones before but they are primarily DJ style not gaming models. Where do they place in the Gaming Circles?
