Summary: In order to test the Piranha headset, I basically just used it for everyday tasks like, music, movies, and gaming. In all my testing I used a Creative X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion Series sound card .
Pros: Good Sound, Noise Filtering Microphone, Nice Long Cord, High-Quality Headset
Summary: Overall I found this headset to be a great peripheral for gaming. The build quality is excellent and the device excelled in voice communications. The only real drawbacks would be in listening to music and movies. In those areas the headset lacked the balance to provide a rich sound, in my opinion.

Cons: » Ear cups smaller than others in this price point, » Microphone mute switch easily activated, » Takes additional time to adjust for comfort for people with larger heads, » Not surround sound capable
