Conclusion: After testing three different surround sound gaming headsets since starting here at Techgage, I think it’s safe to say that these types of products will never be truly geared towards music and movies – though the Sirus certainly improves upon things.
Summary: I bought this headset sometime ago and the left speaker was a lot quieter than the right one. I got a replacement and the problem was there still. I contacted the manufacture and they said we have had reports of a few batches having similar problems like that.
Nice audio, but speakers are not built for durability and break easily

Summary: I've had two of these returned to the manufacturer. They accepted the returns. The reason: these headphones may sound okay at first, but audio quality detoriates quickly. In no time the midrange drivers break down and start crackling.
Summary: Very comfortable, loud, 3d positioning is very good in games. The only problem I have had is when using usb the 5.1 mode disables the Mic. Apparently this is a common problem with all Usb 5.1 headsets. Using analog connection solves this though.

Summary: one ear stopped working then the microphone stopped working, installed new drivers to make it work again (thankfully) lots of bass to be herd! microphone again is very quiet ear cups wiggle connecting to the headband
Summary: Not so great. Bought these and the 5.1 via the USB wasn't that great with poor sound in general at empty hollow levels. Attached the 5.1 analogue to my sound card (Xonar DGX) and it wasn't much better.
