Pros: Wireless, Circumaural, Macro Keys
Cons: Audio Quality
I understand that you make sacrifices when you purchase a wireless headset. I'm not a huge fan of this headset, but it gets the job done and I've come to terms with that. Yes, it is true that you need the software running in order to use the surroundsound and also to equalize the headset. I've never had a problem with the software Equalizing the headset is a must, I found that the mids are very recessed. It's difficult to describe in what ways in regards to audio quality that this headset is lacking. It can be kind of hollow sounding at times and also the surround sound may be regarded by some as a gimmick. You're better off going with the AD 700 if you want a very high quality high satisfaction audio experience with gaming. The reason why I purchased these instead of those was simply because of the microphone and wireless, I didn't want to modify a microphone on to that.
