3 out of 5 eggsBad Experience

Pros: Nice fit and comfortable to wear. Surround sound seemed nice for the couple hours I had them on.

Cons: Shipped with bad talkback cable. Can't use them to chat with friends.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully RMA will get me a set that works.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad... Read other thoughts before you buy though.

Pros: Newegg had the best price.
They are comfortable and feel light on the head.
Look cool.

Cons: Not wireless but that would be hard to do and keep light with a battery and 8 speakers needing power lol.

No analog input surround options :( see "Other thoughts" for why this is a con...

I only play BF3 and the sound is great except for it seems like sometimes the sound (mainly the explosions) is almost like a hall/echo type unless I just am noticing the Dolby Digital compression. I set the enhanced stereo off as you should for surround and set to headphones and also tried home cinema but same. No idea if is sound card or headphones or the game or if I am just more picky vs. others. Don't do anything else with SS to care and only got these for the game. Guess will found out with BF4 comes out lol

I wish these offered DTS which supports higher quality due to increase bit rate over optical.

Wish the side green logo lights could be turned off. The cable has a power LED don't need more lights lol but not really a con, just don't care for them, maybe just make them glow in dark or leave them bright green with no light..

Non-refundable with Newegg so couldn't return (see other thoughts for why I would have returned, optical issue and no analog)

Other Thoughts: So got these for my computer and learned the hard way that 90% of the computers that come with optical out don't support 5.1 through them. To use Optical out with 5.1 on games you must have Dolby Digital Live. This is only supported on sound cards that have the proper hardware and licensing. I had to buy an USB sound card (this is a laptop) to get working which was another 50 bucks and also waste my last USB port and now have a no gadget on my desk :(

Movies that are Dolby Digital will be fine as they are already encoded so it's passive and will work but everything else needs something to encode it as games don't use Dolby Digital but use a raw format, thus needing an card that can encode :(

I would have returned and got a set that did USB or analog but I had an optical out and figured this was better but turns out not to really be the case. Analog surround sound outputs on a computer will offer highest quality as Dolby Digital uses audio compression which will reduce quality a little. If these offered both optical and analog SS input would have been perfect, could just plug in the few extra cables.

5 out of 5 eggsMy new favorite headset

Pros: Sound quality is amazing along with the fact that it looks very sturdy and the included mixer is classy. I enjoy how comfortable the ear pads are and how I do not even notice them on my head after a while.

Cons: had to think of something; can't change the color of the lit up "pro" log on the sides of each ear, I like the neon green but my rig is all blue, and I just like blue.

Other Thoughts: best 5.1 headset I have ever bought.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Comfortable for the size. The SCU is nice, it converts stereo signal to Pro Logic 2 and will also automatically switch to true Dolby 5.1 if available. 4 drivers per ear is awesome, clear highs, nice bass and surround sound is definitely noticeable.

Cons: Noise leak, people can hear me in the other room. Not really a con since these are meant for home use and not travel.

No option to turn off the bright green LED on the headphones.

Other Thoughts: I had to RMA the first pair because the right earpiece rattled with a little bass. Not sure if the driver was blown or something was loose in the earpiece itself. The next pair was perfect. Still worth 5 stars for the sound quality vs price, IMHO.
