The headphones themselves are excellent, but the decoder adds a huge £70 to the price

Good sound quality ; 7.1 effect quite good ; Comfortable ; Can be used with other sources

Price ; Not the best looking headset around

Clean and Lean 3d sound

 

The features on this headset ( usb, 2ch, 5.1ch,7.1 ch, effects, and compression) are very unique and I would say Sony pulled them off. I am impressed with the quality of the sound but I am mostly impressed with the fact that it is easy to operate. All...

easy switching between 7.1 and usb, good sound clarity

quality is completely dependant on your motherboard

Makes Gaming Awesome

 

Got the DRGA500 headset system as a Christimas gift. Was fearful when I took it out of the box that I would have setup issues. Turned out to be easy to connect, well documented, comfortable and provides downright awesome sound! Now I can enjoy ripping...

Sony 7.1 Gaming Head Phones

 

I bought this gaming headphone sight unseen, and I am never disappointed with Sony and their music products, but when mixed with gaming, its phenomenal. The FPS setting is great when playing "LEFT4DEAD2" The real 7.1 surround sound decoder makes...

Great for Gaming and Music

Volume level could go a bit higher

Great headphones

 

The mentally challenged guy below, optimon99, clearly can't read since this is labeled as a PC GAMING HEADSET. This will not work on your little consoles, so if you can't read don't put up useless reviews. Are they worth it? You can get better sounding...

Lightweight, Durable, Good Mic, Very Comfortable

Not as sturdy as most but surprisingly durable

Doesn't work on PS3

 

How can you design such a high end set of headphones that don't even work with your own product. Your biggest market is your PS3 customers. Why doesn't it work?

Looks, sounds and feels great

Useless

DR-GA500

 

I really enjoy this product, its a nice upgrade from the platronic gamecon. It requires a great sound card to output the full pontential, but even with my on-board card the 7.1 works like a charm! I love it!. Havent tried the astros but i think they...

the 7.1 work AMAZING...Note: You must have a good sound card if you want the best quality

doesnt have a quick disconnect. I think on the long run i think they might not have grip on the head after overusage
