Tritton Kunai Stereo Wireless Gaming Headset

 

With all the hype about the Sony wireless headphones for the PS4, and Microsoft’s headphones for the Xbox One, I decided to see if I could find something a little more universal.

I had originally pre ordered the Sony PlayStation Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0 which provides 7.1 virtual surround sound, and also the Official Xbox One Stereo Headset, however, after a little research and cancelled them both. The cancelation was nothing to do with the products themselves, I just realised once the ‘new shiny’ hype had died down , I only occasionally needed to use headphone. This is normally when I’m getting in my gaming fix at unsociable times and attempting to stay in the good books with C and the neighbours.

So why the Tritton Universal Kunai Wireless Headset? Simple, they ticked all the boxes. I can have the audio input connected to my amp via the headphone jack meaning I don’t have to keep switching cables between devices. As they draw their power from the USB, I simply bought a cheap three pin USB mains power adapter and plugged them into that. They’re wireless so no trailing cables. With the Official Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter coming out in a couple of weeks, this would make them compatible with all my games consoles.

So, how are they? They’re very good at what they’re designed for, which is gaming. I have tried these with music and a couple of movies, but felt the audio was a little too wide for them, and just didn’t sound right to me.

Onto the headphones themselves, they’re comfy, have a sleek drop down mic that extents to be closer to your mouth (didn’t realise it extended until I accidentally pulled on it). I did read a number of reviews before buying and a lot of people where complaining about a background hum on when you have the volume low. They’re correct, there is a hum, however the simple fix is to turn up the volume a little.

As for the microphone quality, I’ve only tested this so for with the Xbox 360, and it worked just as well as the one that comes with the 360.

I do have a few minor gripes, the headphones are battery powered and not rechargeable, however this was simply fixed by inserting two AA rechargeable batteries. The other, the volume control, it’s one of those switches that incrementally turns the volume up and down instead of having a wheel. Again, this isn’t too bad, but there’s no notification that you’re at the highest volume, I would have much preferred a simple wheel. Finally, I would have preferred an independent bass control, I find when there’s a lot of bass, like really deep bass, the headphones tend to distort a little. This has only happened a few times, and maybe I’ve got them set to loud.

All in all, a cracking set of headphones, they come with every lead you could ever need, and for the price they do the job well, unboxing photos below.
