Summary: In relation to other $75-$100 range headset, this one is right in the middle. To put it in to perspective, I compared this headset to the Logitech g930, Corsair Vengeance 2100, and the Steelseries Siberia V2. The quality of the of the headset was the only thing I was disappointed in. For me personally, I like a nice tight, solid built headset, which isn't hard to find with my larger head. This headset felt loose and flimsy.
Summary: The surround sound wasn't as gimmicky as I expected it to be, and the mic worked really well. Otherwise it was quite comfortable, my only other gripe was how flimsy the thing felt. Unfortunately the pair I got didn't work properly, the left driver didn't work very well and went out completely when I changed the volume. There may be better headsets out there for the price.
Summary: For reference I have a pair of HD-598's and 518's. These don't sound bad at all. For casual listening they are only a step below my other headphones. They have brighter highs, not nearly the warmth of the HD's. I would easily be pleased with these if I'd never tried the 598's. The brightness actually plays better with games, so that's a plus. What I have issue with, is the 7.1 (and 5.1) virtual surround are terrible.
Summary: Sennheiser has been the go-to brand for professional microphones for years; filmmakers, musicians, broadcasters, you name it. But I never realized they branched out into headsets for the home user, because I always associated their brand with the professional market. So I was interested to see how the Sennheiser brand translated to this type of gaming application.
Summary: As of writing this, this headset costs £109 which in my opinion is way too much. The sound is OK. There's a lack of base. It just feels flat. It's a step up from just using speakers (except the lack of base; for explosions etc) as you can hear what's going on around you (7.1 ss), which is great, but I believe you can get a much cheaper product which will sound better.
Good sound but not so sure 7.1 headphones are that useful

Summary: Comfort and Build quality. I have been using these headphones from everyday use for listening to iplayer and music through to playing computer games. I find the headphones very comfortable.I have got quite small ears so they fit nice and snugly and cover all my ears. I have not found them uncomfortable to wear for long periods.
Summary: I bought these after sending back the Creative Labs Omega with the Recon3D. I have since sent these back as well. They are ok, it's not a rounding endorsement, but they are just ok. If I'm honest they don't sound like what a £110 set of headphones should. Compared to my Sennheiser 595s they again sound ok, perhaps a little thin and metallic, but ok. Those were £89 about 5 years ago.
Summary: Produkt gekauft geliefert bekommen soweit alles gut. Auch die Verpackung wertig und sicher - eingesteckt Software wie in der Anleitung beschrieben isntalliert - lief alles reibungslos. Nun aber zu den nicht so tollen Punkten - das Headsets drückte bei mir auf den Ohren und am Kopfbügel bereits nach 1-2 Stunden tragen stark. Ich habe aber auch eine recht großen Kopf und eine Brille vllt. ist das für nicht Brillenträger ja bequemer.
Summary: Ein sehr gutes und stabiles Gerät. Bequem auch lange zu tragen, gerade nicht zu schwer. Gefertigt als eher audiophiles Stück, mit einer unglaublichen Räumlichkeit, egal ob mit oder ohne Dolby-Effekte. Was viele kritisieren, das ist bei Sennheiser der Bass. Das kommt wohl eher von künstlichen Bassanhebungen, die mittlerweile viele Geräte produzieren, die auf das 'Hochschrauben' von schlechten mp3-Quellen getrimmt sind.
