Tritton Switchblade for PS3 [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The Tritton Switchblade for the PlayStation 3 is a durable and extremely reliable option for gamers out there looking for something solid to use while playing online.  With a sleek design and small footprint, the Switchblade doesn’t feel like you’re talking to someone through a string can as the quality on both the audio and mic side of things is handled well.  Outside of having to come to grips with making the Switchblade comfortable, the ear clip can’t be adjusted and isn’t too flexible, the device is certainly worth investing the money in for those looking for a completely wireless and affordable audio solution.

The Pros: 

+ The design is simple yet incredibly effective.

+ Not everything may sound like it’s coming from a perfect source, but the audio quality in general is good and is almost comparable to high-end headsets.

+ Charge time is rather short and a full charge doesn’t drain too quickly.

+ Having a docking station is nice and makes charging the device a breeze.

The Cons: 

- Ear clip would’ve benefitted from some padding or alternate clip sizes. Rating : 

Advances in technology can be great and this generation we’ve become more acclimated with certain things which have become a part of our lives in one way or another.  In video games we’re used to playing online multiplayer modes, perhaps more often than standard single-player experiences since having some competition against another person is more engaging and there’s always the added bonus of trash talking being thrown in as well.
