This review is from: Turtle Beach Ear Force Universal Gaming Headset Bundle DPX21 with Dolby Surround Sound (Xbox 360/PS3/Windows XP/Vista/7) (Accessory)
I have had these head phones for a number of months now. I purchased them in the US and have been using them on a regular basis. I also have a 5.1 DD system but actually prefer to use these when gaming.
The sound is excellent with no hissing or fizzing when actually in games.
The bass is very tight and is comparable to my active subwoofer. Everything is controllable the bass, in game sound and the chat which is great as you can cut out any unwanted natter without effecting the game sound.
The best thing is that you can really hear where sounds are coming from: left, right, in front or behind you.
The leads are very long ~3.5m and therefore allow you to sit far enough away from the TV without putting the leads on stretch.
I would definitely recommend buying this product it has added a new dimension to me playing Bad Company 2 (which if you like FPS and have not bought yet, where have you been hiding!)
Update 07/02/2012 The headset does not support DTS so if you are playing a DTS game or watching a movie you need to turn off DTS in your sound settings - not a big deal but the only downside, however this alone is not worth dropping a star rating.
