    Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. ("Mad Catz") announced today the shipping of the TRITTON Pro+ True 5.1 Surround Sound Headset for Windows PC and Mac.

    Previously announced at E3 in June 2013, the TRITTON Pro+ for Windows PC and Mac features four separate drivers in each ear cup for true 5.1 surround sound, alongside an in-line remote with Selectable Voice Monitoring (SVM), allowing users to choose if they hear their own voice in the headset.

    "The TRITTON Pro+ headset received a warm reception with the passionate gamers at E3 thanks to its advanced feature set and multiple speakers, delivering highly accurate sound separation, ideal for online gaming," said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. "We believe the TRITTON Pro+ for Windows PC and Mac will enable us to further diversify our platform base within the high-end audio category."

    The TRITTON Pro+ for Windows PC and Mac sports a lightweight and flexible design, and is available in gloss black, gloss white and gloss red colors.

    $160-$200. MY Roccat Kave was $109 but this headset appears to be for PS3/360.

    Wow, for that money you can buy a high quality pair of cans like Beyer DT770 Pros or the like. Why these super-gimmicky surround sound headsets are still being bought is quite a mystery.

    Ah. Me too.

    I understand that there's probably some licensing fees to make hardware work on consoles, but a $70 price bump? Seems a bit much.
