Fantastic headphones. The real deal for gaming and for music. The feature about these headphones which had me sold was the usb connectable soundcard which effectively reduces CPU usage on the built-in desktop card. Using music production programs such as FL Studio and Ableton, I was instantly able to hear a less strained sound after the drivers were installed.
Overall, the 7.1 surround sound is great, but it's best not to use it on everything such as music and YouTube vids as they are optimized for 2 channels. However, when it is needed, such as for movies and gaming, you literally feel immersed in the sound as it is coming from all around you.
Comfort levels are great, going from a $30 of logitechs to these, I could barely notice I was wearing them after a couple of hours. The sound cancellation from outside noise is top-level as well.
Finally, the microphone is very solid as well, with friends saying that my voice was noticeably clearer over VoIP programs.
