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: 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.
Summary: Pretty bad headphones for the price, they broke within a year of use and the volume is pretty bad and too quite. the microphone was first to go and then the top part started to brake apart not sure if it just my headset or the quality of this product is fairly bad.
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: Going from the Tritton 510 hd a or what ever they are called there is a big noticable difference all round. 1 the comfprt on thse things is unbelievable with the cloth type ear cups just wow. 2 The sound directional when in 5.1 is amazing . Not tried stereo in these but why would you I would say.
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.
