Amazing Headphones! 9.5 out of 10. Back Story:I have had a lot of headphones over the years and the majority of them have been utter crap. I had one really good pair of headphones that were made by Sony back in the 1980s and I used them so much I broke both sides and had to tape them together to make them work. The sound was so good that I would have rather kept those beat up headphones than be forced to use the 2 or 3 pairs I bought after them. I was sad when I finally just had to throw them away and accept that it might be a while before I lucked out and got something that good. (It’s taken a long time).Fast forward to the late 1990s and early 2000s. I have gone through another 2 or 3 headsets. I had a Sony that was decent, but not nearly as good as my original Sony back in the day. I then went through Logitech, Microsoft (totally AWFUL) sound and some other headset that I threw away because it was crap. I even checked out Bose and was really underwhelmed by the sound.

The Amazing Budget Headset I hope this review gets to as many people as people. First I’d like to begin by saying something very important.PLEASE READ IF BUYING THIS HEADSET:Make sure to go down to the ‘Speaker’ icon in the taskbar and right-click it. Click playback devices find the ‘Speakers: Gamecom 780’ entry, and right-click again. Then click ‘Configure Speakers’ and navigate down to 7.1 surround. Keep clicking Test and then the Next buttons until it says that 7.1 surround is set up. If you do not do this even if you enable Dolby Surround in the headset’s software you’ll only be getting 5.1 virtual surround, instead of 7.1. It does make a difference, and is considerably better. I wish it explained this more in the documentation. Also note if you switch to stereo mode it still is normal stereo, this changing in the options menu doesn’t screw up the stereo option at all.Now on to the review:First off, this headset in pictures looks a bit silly with the orangish red…
