5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly good... 27 April 2012
Style Name:Gamecom 780|Verified Purchase
An astonishingly good set of headphones even if they were twice the price that is being asked for them.

Physical characteristics:

The headphones themselves, in terms of their construction, seem to be of very good quality, with none of the cheap, creaky plastic you might find in some other headphones. The ear muffs fit comfortably over my entire ear (my ears are on the large side) and are cushioned comfortably against my head by the padded velvet type ear muffs, and on top of my head, by the similarly padded and covered headband. The headband will go over pretty much anyones head I think, and has just enough spring loading in it to keep it firmly attached on your head, without giving you a headache or ear ache. Cable quality seems good, and it ends in a standard USB connector with none of the bulk associated with some USB headphone connectors, so for those of you with crowded USB sockets, it should fit in without problem and without you having to swap all your USB plugged items around in order to get it inserted. The mic arm on the headset is of the usual 'boom' style and can be moved up and down through a 90 degree arc. It is also flexible and can be bent towards or away from your mouth. On the left hand ear muff of the headset itself, there is a button to turn the Dolby NR on/off, a mic mute switch, and a volume control. The Dolby button lights up with a blue light when the Dolby is turned on.

Installation:

These headphones have a set of drivers supplied with them on a CD, and these should be installed before plugging in the headphones and will require a system reboot for them to be enabled properly. Once the system has rebooted, plug the headphones in, and wait for them to be detected and the appropriate drivers installed.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only everything had this much value! 27 July 2012
Style Name:Gamecom 780|Verified Purchase
Update: After 8 months of ownership and daily use for several hours a day, the plastic headband snapped - Right at the joint with the earcup. From reading a LOT of the other reviews, this has happened with some others' headsets, so bear this in mind. Also, mine seem to have lasted the longest out of those that have failed. Will be investigating possibility of refund/replacement through Amazon.

With this in mind, my remarks below still stand - It's a bloody good 7.1 headset for the money and I am still considering a replacement:

For all the great reviews, this is still the cheapest 7.1 headset I could find and I expected everything about it to be thusly attributed. What I got was surprisingly good...

Packaging:
Good enough. Nothing fancy, no amazing marketing designs, but then why would you need that when it just costs more money anyway? It's a cheap headset.
Inside of the box flap has a little note pointing to where the installation CD is taped in place, too. Nice helpful touch.

Software:
Install and restart PC *before* you first plug the headset in. They even include a small orange card to remind you of this. Don't worry, the software is tiny and won't affect your system resources or anything like that.
Once done and you've plugged the headset in, the software is easy to use and very, very simple. There's only a couple of options and a button that opens the PC's audio properties... But for the sort of person who'd buy this headset (rather than the fancy one where the fifty aspects of every individual driver can be customised), this is all you need!
Here is where you can switch between 5.1 and 7.1 sound and set up anything else you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars top quality, fair price 18 May 2012
Style Name:Gamecom 780|Verified Purchase
I was told I wasn't allowed to plug a surround sound system into my new all singing all dancing computer I built not only is space an issue but neighbours as well so I thought headhones, I thought to get a decent set with a mic for computing use and when I saw these I was skeptical about the surround sound that they boast but to be honest it works fantastic sometimes I look over over my shoulder to see if theres someone behind me; to me it feels more like magic than technology.

Packaging & Delivery: packaged well came within 36 hours of being ordered.

Installation: plug the USB into usb 2.0 slot then insert disc to install the software. (They work without the software but the 7.1 surround needs the software I believe)

Microphone: works a treat I have been skyping without a problem it picks up your voice even when speaking quietly the noise filtering works great to.

Sound: I have tried a lot of high end headphones i.e dr dre beats £280 and skull candies £160 these are different in that they are for gaming but i'd say these are suited to more tasks i.e music, films, games and that they are a pleasure to use

Build quality: big thick and chunky also they feel sturdy but more importantly they are comfortable and hug the ears well, theres no danger of them falling off, the 2 metre long usb cable is a treat as well so they dont tie you in one spot.

To conclude at £40 I feel I owe them something; I would deffinately recommend them.
