"Gamers must have. Great, lifelike surround sound"4.0 starson by gracdp
Pros: Fanatastic sound. Lightweight, Comfortable phones.
Cons: none so far
Summary: I own PS3, XBox360, and PC Games and bought these so not to wake up people when late night gaming and as a replacement to the crappy 360 headset. I've only used these on xbox 360 so far.
The surround sound is excellent eg I can hear people sneaking up behind me in BFBC2. In some online reviews there's comments about the AX720's not having a good bass sound but I haven't found that at all eg BFBC2 sounds like a full raging battlefield with deep exposion sounds. These headsets are light and very comfortable. I have no discomfort from wearing them for long sessions.
Don't be put off by all the wires. The instructions are easy enough to follow and there's lots of youtube clips on setting them up if you need any more help. Main point is that an XBox 360 may need an optical adaptor, unlike the PS3 which has optical out built in, and if you're in Oz you'll need a power convertor ($12).
The mic is nice and sturdy. The clarity of other people talking on online isfine and the adjustable volume control between mic and game sounds is easy to access.
