The Good The Tritton AX Micro is a compact Bluetooth headset with a secure grip and affordable price.

The Bad The Tritton AX Micro has an odd fit and doesn't perform too well in windy environments.

The Bottom Line Despite the Tritton AX Micro's unusual ear cover, we think the AX Micro is a secure-fitting headset with decent sound quality.

Every once in awhile we get Bluetooth headsets made from a company we don't usually hear about, and Tritton is one of them. Known mostly for their USB devices, Tritton is venturing into the headset market with the AX Micro, a Bluetooth headset with one of the most unusual earpiece covers we've seen yet. Though we can't say we like the design, we do think it has fairly decent sound quality, and it's quite affordable at $59.99.

From the outset, the AX Micro looks like the average Bluetooth headset. Measuring about 1.5 inches long by 0.6 inch wide by 0.3 inch deep, the AX Micro is small and compact, with an all black rectangular casing. Its multifunction button is on the top of the headset, and the volume buttons are on the left and right side. We found the buttons rather slippery and smooth--we would've liked to have a bit more texture on the buttons so they would be easier to find by feel. However, they are slightly raised above the surface and yielded easily to pressure. There's an LED status indicator light on the lower part of the front face.
