Rated 3 out of 5 by UKai Not worthy.
When I first received this from DPD I couldn't wait to get it out from the box. Eagerly I opened away like a kid at Christmas to be amazed by a stunning and impressive box for the headset.
Once opened, the joys continued - looks the part! Without waiting around and trying not to stare too much I tried them on and they're very comfortable and was impressed with the added addition of the wired remote/control for the speakers settings etc.
Anyways, once plugged in I flipped on some sound and got my music playing to tweak some of the speakers as at first, I was really disappointed with the sound quality (I thought it may just be down to the EQ as such). Upon tweaking between music audio and movie audio, I just couldn't get that rich audio sound? no matter what I did!
Anyways, so I loaded up the game that would benefit from the true 7.1 surround and wow, the directional audio is second to none. I was relieved to the point that I wasn't totally at risk of losing my £170. None the less, if I had a choice, I wouldn't buy these again nor would I recommend them.
Comfortable. Look the part. Immersive 7.1 sound that really does deliver and surely will give you advantage in a game such as BF3 or any other game that provides a directional environment.
Cons: Terrible audio quality when 7.1 isn't used for gaming purposes. Mic isn't too great. A terrible hissing sound that apparently isn't due to the headset but that of a poorly grounded USB port (Common problem).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kain172 good but you have to play with settings
I have already did a review but scan would not allow it. It says + Watchdogs but I never received this with the headphones. Also you do need a 7.1 dedicated soundcard which Scan do not mention.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jaffa Fantastic Headset
You'll need to buy a 7.1 sound card if you want to get the most out of this headset. On-board sound won't do... Especially not for the 7.1.
The bass is fantastic, I have had a few headsets and this has the best sound quality BY FAR. The build quality isn't the best and it is quite cumbersome (if you're a laptop gamer then this isn't the headset for you).
