Great mid/high range headset

 

This headset has held up great over a year. From packing and storing abuse, all works well still. The sound is great, In fps you can really tell which direction footsteps are coming from

Its heavy. After a 6 hour gamathon you might start getting a headache

Good Headset

 

They have held up for over a long time and I believe I got my moneys worth.

5.1 sound and very good sound quality. I have had them over a year now and still working great. has a nice long cord

I have had 2 problems with them.... since I wear them a lot I had to add padding to the headband because my head would get a red square on it ( I do have a large head so that may have something to do with it). The other problem was with the in line...

Works like a champ

 

i didn't purchase my headset from the egg. I bought mine from a brick and mortar and have since moved to where there just happens to be no stores within a few hundred miles, just my luck. I loved this headset when I first bought it. The sound was...

Pretty upset with Roccat. Can't say anything good about them right now

These things are heavy! They are built like a tank and weigh almost as much. After long nights of gaming they will leave indentations across the top of your head that won't go away for a couple of days. If you wear a hat it's no problem but if you rock...

Still going strong

 

They are a bit heavy but I have a thick neck so maybe thats a prequisite. Play BF4 for hours in perfect comfort.

Last reviewed these 2/24/2013 and happy to say after dropping them dozens of times , spills, etc. they are still going as strong as the day I took them out of the box. Do not know what the negative reviewers here are doing wrong but..after owning...

Great Case

 

Really comfortable, amazing sound. Buy an external mic, i use the Audio-Technica Atr2500 (a semi-cheap usb mic) would buy gain.

Amazing sound, the true 5.1 surround is better than any virtual 7.1 i've heard. Comfortable - fully circumaural!!! Fit really snug on my ears. Ladies will dig your well muscled neck after 1 week of use

Heavy-ish... I got used to it really fast so now its just really comfortable. The mic. I have tampered with it, messed with all my settings, downloaded programs to help, my mic always sounds quiet to people. This may be a problem with Mac OSX, but who...

Fantastic for What it is

 

I alreadty have one of these for my tower, but I decided to buy one for my media server to take advantage of surround sound without disturbing others.

Takes advantage of surround sound without disturbing others ; So far, solid build ; Control module is robust and nicer than other 5.1 headsets that just hang off your head when in use ; Don't need a lot of output power to drive the speakers for a good...

It isn't 7.1
