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: 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. The quality is amazing in either mpde dual usb or via a decent sound card to even beat the usb quality.
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. So i then took the replacement headset back to amazon for a full refund and bought it from another retailer. Tell you what, It was PERFECT !!! Amazon got some bad batches from them.. Overall They are good.
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. This is a huge disappointment, since the audio quality at first is quite nice. Although, out of the box, it is not very finely tuned.
