Looks nice but the wi-fi will definitely degrade performance, not that these were going to perform that good anyways. tongue.gif

What about the Turtle Beach HPA2's? I've read tons of reviews on them and they have all agreed that the surround aspects work perfectly. However I have yet to try them for myself, so I still reserve personal judgement. I only mention them because I'm very tempted to buy a pair

There are some headsets that actually have 5/7 physical drivers to recreate surround but no one has successfully done it well imo.
you only have 2 ears, i'm just saying. i saw news section on reddit my friend had up and it was demon straightening software that could accurately recreate surround sound through to speakers. again you only have 2 ears so as long as you fool the brain the illusion of the proper distance you can have surround sound with 2 speakers.

Speakers project linear sound. Ears receive surrounding sounds.

Wireless and 8 channel.
Every audiophile's nightmare.

Why does it need a USB wifi dongle? Why not just use the one in the PS3?

It looks cool, but I certainly hope it has better build quality than the last set of Sony headphones I bought - which fell apart in a few months of light use because of the shoddy quality one would expect fromsome Hecho In China sweatshop...
