I was just going to link this video, lol. People don't realize that true omnidirectional surround sound works perfectly with just two speakers/headphones. These surround sound headphones truly are a gimmick, they are making so much money off of general misunderstanding, something the whole audio industry in general is amazing at.

I've been using Sennheiser PC360's. They are comfy, have great sound and in my opinion features one of the best microphones for a headset.

I dont see why everyone is hating. Ya sure razer may not be best known for quality but until reviews we can only assume.

The difference of `true` surround sound @ less than 1in from the ear canal opening is going to be negligible.
Heres an example completely unrelated to headphones, but still in the audio spectrum that makes this make more sense.

I have $500, and a very small room which I want to put a home theater system in. I can go out and purchase one of those cheapo boxed 7.1 systems for $499.99 and be set with a set of cheap component speakers and tweaters, and a garbage subwoofer with an 'okay' receiver.
OR
I can go buy 2 decent full dynamic range towers, and a pretty decent receiver, and achieve better sound with much the same positioning since I can just use the Dolby3d virtual surround of my good receiver.

Its the same situation, positional audio is negligible when there isn't much room for the audio to come from. I.e. An enemy player is walking 15 feet behind you at 270* from your current facing position. 15 feet behind you is a wall in real life. You CANNOT possibly place the audio actually 15 feet behind you... but a simple time delay can trick your brain into thinking there is an audio source 15 feet behind you.

er..no.
5 actual speakers will always sound better than a "virtual" software hack.
The 2.0 might sound a lot better in it's capacity, but it's NOT going to emulate real surround.
For an actual speaker setup, not headphones.

I bet my AD700+Zalman combo will blow these out of the water.

Just like they have to all my friends' razer, creative, logitech, and steelseries headsets.

Actually, anyone who has ever used a Razer product (specifically headsets) will tell you how unbelievably comfortable they are. Their sound quality isn't up to par for audiophiles but they are awesome for hours of gaming.

I give them 6 months until they start to fall apart like every other Razer product.

I feel like that is a little biased. I have had my Mamba and Charcarias since they came out, and they still work perfectly.

Razer isn't an audio company. This product is sold to people who don't know any better and will pay a large premium for something that is marketed well, regardless of how bad it might be.
