A Desert Eagle isn't worth its fancy name, if you don't know where to aim. Imagine your advantage within the heat of the battle when you exactly hear where your opponents are before you can actually see them. Knowing the position of your enemy is half the frag. Realistic 3D surround sound makes you locate your opponents easily by the noise they generate. The desktop control enables you to adjust to situations quickly with sound and microphone mute buttons and volume control for different channels.
First off it is an analog sound set up, so you will need to a 5.1 surround sound card for it to do 5.1.
First thing i noticed about this headset was the build quality, feels really good in your hands, all plastic but feels high quality with a great finish. Everything feels sturdy over all and the ear pieces are also very good quality.
Second thing was comfort, the headset fits to nearly any head very nicely and is not heavy at all. Even after wearing the headset now for the past 3 hours my ears have not begun to feel hot at all or sweaty.
Import thing obviously though is the sound quality which I am happy to inform you is great, I do not play a lot of FPS games so cant comment on those but for The Witcher 2, Diablo 3 and Skyrim it is phenominal and gave me a far richer sounding environment in these games than I have ever had before.
Movie and Music quality is very good as well with nice strong bass and clear voices.
The microphone is also beautifully clear and is excellent for recording.
Over all very happy with this headset and anyone looking for a true 5.1 surround sound headset should check this out.
