Tritton Kama Stereo Gaming Headset Review
So as some of you guys may know, I am a pretty avid gamer and have been for just about my entire life. I have done some PC gaming in the past, but for the most part I have always loved and owned many different gaming consoles. For the time being my console of choice is the Playstation 4 which I got last November. So a couple friends of mine who are also very avid gamers and myself have decided to start live streaming our game play for you, the Nerd Nation. That being said I wanted to get a decent gaming head set that would sound good and wouldn’t break the bank. I know the PS4 comes with it’s own chat head set but lets be honest, it’s not very good and definitely isn’t good for party chat or recording quality audio. Besides, any excuse I can get to buy some new teach then I’m all over it.
So after doing some research I settled on the Tritton Kama Stereo Gaming Headset for the Playstation 4. It was important that it was specifically for the PS4 so both the audio and chat functions would work. For a while I just thought about using the apple Iphone ear buds but the chat feature wouldn’t work with them. Oh the other important (all be it less important) feature for the headset was that it came in white. Black would have been fine but I have a white PS4 with a white controller. I think you see where I’m going with this. The Tritton Kama headset retails anywhere from $25.00 to $35.00 depending on where you purchase it. I happened to find it on sale and in white (every other place I checked only had black) at the Mad Catz online store for $24.99.
It took a little longer than I would have liked for it to get here, but the important thing is that it arrived safely. I’ve had the headset for two days and have thoroughly enjoyed them. For the small price tag I am very pleased with the quality of this product. The head phones themselves feel sturdy but not too heavy. The cushion around the ear cups and head band are very comfortable. After several hours of gaming I didn’t feel any discomfort at all or feel the need to take them off during gaming. I’ve seen other people complain about the ear cups being a little on the small side but I personally don’t think that at all. Along with the adjustable head band I think this head set would comfortably fit just about anyone.

The sound quality from the headphones is great (in my opinion). I’ve tested them out on several different games (GTA V, Black Light Retribution, DBZ: Xenoverse) as well as on my Iphone. The bass is decent although not great, the lows are very full, while the highs are not over powering or tingy. The Tritton Kama stereo headset has a very full and robust sound over all and are perfect for gaming. All the sound affects came through nice and clear. I was able to easily make the distinction between what was close to me and what was further out in the games. This is perfect for games like Battlefield and Call of Duty. The microphone sounds great and is very crisp and clear on the other end. However, It does pick up some background noise so I found it best to game with the door closed.
The Tritton Kama gaming headset is easy to set up and you get some simple instructions right in the box that tells you step by step how to get started. Even if they didn’t give you the instructions I’m pretty sure most gamers would be able to figure it out on their own. My only real complaint with this headset is the chord that attaches to the 3.5 mm headphone jack. It is a little on the short side (44 inches), but not too noticeable. However, it is not the braided nylon chord like more higher end gaming accessories usually come with. It’s the basic rubber coating like the Iphone ear buds have and I can already see it wanting to kink up on me. That could potentially be a problem down the line so just be careful how you store them.
In all honestly I think that the Tritton Kama Stereo Gaming Headset is a great buy for someone that is an avid gamer but not necessarily trying to get onto the MLG pro circuit. If you are in need of a good quality gaming headset with party chat functionality but don’t want to spend a ton of money, then I highly recommend the Tritton Kama Stereo Gaming Headset.
