Gamecom 777 Vs. G930

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just bought the Gamecom 777 and tried it out, but I was disappointed to realized that this is a virtual surround sound rather than a true surround. The quality is nice, but the surround sound was not what i was looking for. When enabled it just makes it sound like the room you're in is full of sound vs have a front/rear balance.
I'm thinking about returning these headphone for the g930, but will this be the same kind of surround sound as the 777 or will it give me front/rear sounds as well?

The G930's sound worse than my Koss PortaPro's ($30) with an XtremeGamer sound card (Also $30). And by worse, I mean A LOT worse. They are among the worst headphones you can get for gaming and music.

If you have the money for a G930 then you shouldn't hesitate to get a pair of AD700's at all.

Those look nice, but i'm really looking for headphones that have a true surround sound for gaming (not that sound quality isnt important too) What would you recommend that has nice sound quality and true surround sound?

Nothing. There isn't a single pair of headphones that provides true surround sound. If you want true surround sound go out and spend $2000 on a nice 7.1 setup with a receiver, amp, sub, etc.

AD700's may be ugly, but when paired up with an XtremeGamer/Titanium/Titanium HD they will make the G930's sound like airline headphones.

It is completely your call though. If you want to spend $100 on that junk when $20 headphones provide MUCH better sound go ahead and do it.

Now back me up OCN.

I wasn't trying to argue what you were saying or anything. I wasn't aware that they dont make true surround sound headphones. I'll just keep the ones I already bought. Thanks

Why don't you return them and buy a pair of HA-RX700's? They are cheaper and sound a lot better for the price. Much more bass and wider sound stage. A Zalman clip on mic is $9.

Then you can always add a sound card later.
