Summary: First off I only purchased the Asus Orion headset, not the PRO version. The PRO version has a usb adapter that acts as an equalizer and supplies additional power to the headset. I bought this for use with an xbox 360 via an astro mixamp. It works perfect as I expected. You can however hear your own voice in the headset when you talk, and if you turn the dial to voice your own voice gets louder. You get used to it and it's not intrusive but it's definitely odd.
Summary: This is one of the best gaming headset that i've seen. It provides deep bass in-game as well as for music. The 7.1 virtual surround is awesome and sounds are more life-like. To conclude, the amplifier and FPS equation are also a great addition to the bundle, making the Orion Pro a great deal!
Summary: Fantastic piece of kit works as advertised and agree with all the other 5* reviews. Bought this after my Logitech G430 went faulty and was credited. I am not disappointed. Easy to set up, comfortable to wear with great sound quality as well.
Summary: These are very good for music and gaming, but the positional audio is not as good as expected (wouldn't recommend these if you're looking for a headset that has good positional audio), however, with Asus Xonar DG soundcard and 5.1 dolby enabled, positional audio is awesome! My ears never get tired of wearing these - very comfortable and soft earcups. Retractable mic is a big PLUS.
Awesome headset, may not be good for prolonged periods of gaming.

Summary: The headset is great and after 30 hours of use it sounds great and is comfortable. The remote is very useful, the aesthetics are great and the braided cord really adds a feel quality. The mic, while not the best is of good quality and the retractable functionality is definitely a plus, however at times it can feel a little flimsy. I usually use the headset for no longer than 3 hours at a time so I cannot vouch for how comfortable it is for any longer sessions.
