First Look: Tritton AX Micro1:15 /
Despite the Tritton AX Micro's unusual ear cover, we think the AX Micro is a secure-fitting headset with decent sound quality.
[ Music ] [ Background Music ] >> I'm Nicole Lee, senior editor for CNET.com and this is the AX Tritton Micro Bluetooth headset. It looks like a pretty normal bluetooth headset from the front. There's a very sleek black look to it. There's a multifunction button right on the top here and the volume control is on the left and right side. On the back of the headset is a very unusual looking earbud cover -- is, as you can see has a sort of perforations on the front here and have also five rubber fingers on the top which add to the secure feeling of the headset when fitted in the ear. We found the multifunction button a little difficult to press because it is flashy on the surface of the headset and the fit of the rubber fingers in the earbud cover here is a little bit uncomfortable. It feels odd if you try to get the headset to fit comfortably. As far as sound quality goes, the AX Tritton Micro performed admirably. We hear our callers just fine. They hear us loud and clear as well. Our only problem was that because the earbud cover sits on the outside of the ear, we could get a lot of wind and noises during windy environments. The AX Tritton Micro is available for retail for around 60 dollars. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the AX Tritton Micro Bluetooth headset. [ Music ]
