Summary: I received this headset from my son for christmas and i find them very cheap and nasty,i would avoid like the plague. The sound without the vibration function is tinny and lacks any bass and when you turn on the vibration function it is overly bassy and distorted,there really is no middle ground. The worst problem i have had is that they only work via usb.
Summary: Coming from the Creative Tactic 3D Rage, the quality of audio is very bad. Low amount of base and in shooters the soundtrack sets off the vibration rather than gunshots or explosions. The surround effect was there after configuring the butt ugly software however was not as obvious as some products. The headset was loud but not massively loud, I use it slightly below Max volume.
Summary: Few More Words... Just got this headset through and was using it for recording videos not the gaming features, have spent the last hour just listening to things to make my head vibrate, what an ausome feature.
Summary: In short- This headset is incredible for the price. BUY IT. The mic is incredible. I have the mic currently set to 20% on it's sensitivity and it still manages to pick up sounds ridiculously quiet. And the quality is spot on. I should also mention(as it's not that clear in the description)... When you fold the mic up, it auto mutes. Which is a great feature meaning no buttons for those moments you have to talk to someone else in the room. For the speakers, just wow.
Summary: You have a great clear sound quality to these headphones, especially for the price and the Microphone works great and is pretty durable. Along with it retracting back up to the headset makes it pretty hard to break.
Summary: Got my headset very promptly today, as a replacement for my problematic Turtle Beach x12s. The packaging was nice, and seemed sensible. The headset comes with a mini disc, which fits most CD drives, but you can update online as well. The sound utility isn't groundbreaking but it does the job well. As for the headset, it's very comfortable, and the ear cup based controls are really good.
Uncorfortable, i would say its 2.1 rather than 7.1. Not supported by linux

Summary: Have tested this item for a few days and would say that these are worth £10 and not £40. Cheap looking, very bad sound (mine stereo sony or philips sounds better), uncomfortable for ears, poor ventilation, bad ergonomics. I would suggest to a new buyer to save his money for some normal brand headphones where its properly tested before release to the market.
