Summary: Works fine on Mac OSX. Use Audio MIDI Setup.app in the utilities folder to enable 5.1 operation. Rated it low for several reasons: 1: The ear pads are not very comfortable and don't wrap around the ears. Almost like the pads on mine were mounted sideways.
Summary: My wife seem's to like these even though they nearly blew out her ear drums when they were first hooked up. After several months of use the are finally not clamping her head as tightly anymore but I will say she complain's about their weight.
Summary: These sound great and am very pleased with the purchase. Didn't buy them for gaming or anything other than enjoying music. Good noise reduction and although a bit heavier than I anticipated, they are very comfortable. Highly recommended!
Summary: This may be just me since I have a small head, but when I got this headset less then a year ago and put it on I realised it was very tight and it was uncountable to where for over only 30 minutes. This loosened up a lot in the following months though.
Summary: It's weird getting use to hearing things behind me. Yup, these really do work. I'm not use to hearing things behind me when I put headphones on. These do it. Even the old analog Turtle Beach 5.1 headphones were not this directional. Those were really good too, but these are so much better!
Summary: These headphones sound great. When put in surround sound mode, you can really tell where things are coming from. They sound even better when put into stereo mode (good for music) The mic also works well. No one's complained about the quality of it.
GET RID OF THE @#$% FLASHING LED - good headphones

Summary: Well, for a Prime item with my Prime membership, this one took a bit long to arrive... 4th business day. Still, not bad really. I like these so far, on a few hours use. *THE CONSTANTLY FLASHING BLUE LED HAS TO GO!* I expect to tape over or destroy it...
Summary: Windows 8 owners do not despair! ARCTIC has a driver and these work great. There is true separation from the front to rear - quite useable in location of sound from front to rear. There is a center channel driver - it is very phase locked between earcups so a nice front and center image is produced.
Budget headset - vibrant sound, but low quality mic

Summary: This is an excellent budget headset. When purchasing you should keep in mind that you can't beat the quality for the price point, but that if you're willing to spend a lot more, there are better options. That being said, I'm very pleased with the sound quality.
