Summary: What i like most in this piece of hardware is it`s great performance when listening to music and to be more specific i like the bass it produce. i bought this headset from an electronic e-tailer called "nefsak" available here in Egypt at about 30$.
Summary: Well, I knew I was going to have problems from the start, as I run Linux in the flavour of Ubuntu, but after a quick install of PulseAudio volume control, I selected 5.1 Surround, and my ears started bleeding! The Audio is awesome, the headset is comfortable, and the microphone is super! I know that they're not proper 5.1, but films are just amazing, and you can tell when something is behind you, especially in Left 4 Dead 2 and Serious Sam 3 BFE!!
Summary: I have used many headphones in the past. From 200£ to 30£. I ordered Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Rage headsets and I wanted it to replace my roccat Kaves. When the headsets arrived in the first 20 mins I started to feel uncomfortable. The quality was crap. I then started searching for Good 5.1 headsets when I found these. I knew I dont want to get roccat Kaves back because Roccat one have some static issue etc and Creative one was just crap overall.
Summary: Basically what the headline says. I bought one of these for me and one for a friend. They've been relatively hard-wearing (I ended up breaking mine only slightly after stepping on it, which is rare for hardware) and the quality of sound, microphone and comfort is as good as I would like. Obviously wearing it 24/7 hurts, but wearing it for a 3 hour stint feels nice.
