Pros: a very nice looking product, loads of different options to test out, sounds good with the 5.1 sound cards. microphone is also detachable. long cables so it does not add extra weight on your head like some other headphones do.
Cons: must have a 5.1 sound card so really your looking at spending more money than just buying a headset like other ones, some times the surround sound is off and does not work properly, the microphone has issues - can be looked up over the internet to find out what issues.
Pros: Sound excellent well built solid oozing quality for very little money. I owned the Razor Carcharias and even though its a quality headset and very light in my opinion the Kane 5.1 has better sound and more for your bucks :)
Cons: Can be quite heavy after a few hours other than that none. If Roccat were to design a lighter model!!! they will sell like hot cakes$$$$$ :)
Pros: Really comfortable around the ears as they don't make contact with them, they cup them. Surround sound is real, there are actually multiple speakers in each cup. Sound quality is very good for the price. Comes with detachable mic. Can wear for hours/all day without any discomfort to the ears.
Cons: After wearing for very long periods of time the part of the headset that rests on the crown area of your head can become uncomfortable. A little adjustment or short break will solve this though. They are somewhat comically huge and will make you look like you are wearing a helicopter pilot's headset. Not a major problem though.
Summary: Great quality all round, but a pain in the back side to get the 5.1 working properly. That said, once you have managed it once it is easy from that point on wards. Furthermore, My wire snapped after 2-3 months - nothing a bit of tape couldn't fix. The wire was worth mentioning in this review however I may have been to blame as I was a tad heavy handed with it. So if you use it carefully you should be fine. All in all a great product. Recommend it.
Summary: The head phones sound very good indeed I do not have gripe with the quality of the sound these headphones produce. It's the build quality, on day two of using the headphones the cover to the balance controls broke off. Not much of a big problem so I excepted it and got on with enjoying the great sound. After 28 days of owning and using the headphones the hinge on the left ear peace broke through normal use. This left the headphones unusable.
Summary: An amazing headset! Though this is my first I've tried and experienced some of the highest end headsets costing 3 times as much and to be honest this is no worse. Sound quality is excellent, bass is dramatic and the in-line controller works brilliantly! The microphone is also very good and extremely versatile. I would definatly recommend this headset though perhaps not for those with small heads!
Summary: this headset coupled with the asus xonar dgx sound card is amazing the only down fall at first is the weight but you get used to it after a while and long sestions are not a problem. the sound quality is brilliant and the surround sound is very accurate the mic is clear and blocks out background noise well. would recommend to any gamer that wants to get more realistic gaming experience.
Summary: This is a fantastic headset for the money, offering true and well balance 5.1 surround audio, with good mid's and highs (not tiny), and rich thumping bass. Build quality is strong and sturdy, it feels hefty and well made, and can take a good knock or two without joints breaking. Though some say the headband isn't comfortable, it is purely a matter of preference.
Summary: Solid headset with good mic, great sound(nice bass,vibration) but, you need time until they set on your head before that they are uncomfortable, you can get head ache , and dent your head. However gaming experience is amazing, films and music are good also.
