    Their last 7.1 headset was an overpriced price of crap. (I’m an owner). And they never mentioned that it was virtual surround. I would avoid razer headphones like the plague. Particually when they force you to use their crappy USB integrated sound card.

    My brother uses a logitec one plugged into an old creative sound blaster, which is miles ahead of mine in terms of 3d sound and sound quality.

      This may not be one to avoid as it does not use a usb sound card it has full 7.1 connections plus a usb for the controler and power.

    @ecbf7c08d3a9d5b0ea0feac138fa8e60:disqus It clearly states this is the worlds FIRST 7.1 headset so how you purchased a 7.1 headset off them previously would be an interesting story.Idiot.
