Good quality 7.1 headphones non USB

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can anyone recommend a pair of good quality 5.1 or 7.1 gaming headphones that run off the 3.5mm headphone jack rather than USB? The reason I ask is I just got an ROG Phoebus soundcard and as good as the Razer carcharius are, I just don't think they are doing my new card any justice. Any suggestions would be great thanks.

Well, you've taken a step in the right direction, now move the other foot away from 5.1/7.1 headsets and focus on a stereo headset/headphone.

Sennheiser PC360 if you can afford it.

Ended up buying the PC360s and they are incredible especially with the ROG phoebus thanks for the recommendation.
