Pros: PS support (for those peasants), decent surround sound but only on PSs, works on Linux

Cons: Uncomfortable, leather starts to tear off after a lot of use, small drivers, distorted sound, ZERO bass!

Overall Summary: They're wireless via bluetooth, which means the sound gets compressed.  So there goes what little quality they had.  I'd guess the drivers are about 30mm, so nothing near impressive, or even standard.  Back in my peasant days (aka when I played on PS3), they were pretty darn good.  On PC, these are a total joke.  They have a very "V" sounding sound stage, and their sound stage is pretty dang small.  There's also a huge gap in the front of the sound stage, and things coming from 4-5 o'clock, and 7-8 o'clock sound directly behind you.  Same with the front, everything from 11-2 o'clock sounds more right and left. 
 

Pros: Good back in the day, comfort isn't terrible, weight is alright, wireless (sort of a con), works on Linux, wireless range is alright, controls are pretty good and useful

 

Cons: Wireless via bluetooth (sound gets compressed) mic quality sucks, surround sound is horrid on PC, small drivers, horribly distorted sound, ZERO bass,

 

Final Thoughts: Just... no.  These were gifted to me back in my peasant days, but I never would've bought these knowing what I know now.  Then again, this was 5 years ago, so...

Pros: Comfortable, no clamping pressure, somewhat decent audio quality.

Cons: Terrible build quality, feels cheap, bad surround sound, distortion at high volumes.

Compared to the ATH-AD700, these are a joke. Don't get me wrong, these aren't that bad. But you can find better gaming headphones for 100 bucks. The bass is there, but its barely there (cant hear it nor feel it). I don't listen at high volumes but there's a lot of distortion when you crank the volume up. The surround sound is decent, but not the best. Although i dont care much about stuff like this, but the build quality is absolutely terrible. It feels like im holding a 10 dollar headphone. 

 

What i like about it is that it is comfortable and the ear cups never get warm after long periods of time.

Pros: Comfortable over long periods of time

Cons: Squeaky

I've had these headphones for a few months now and don't really have very many complaints. It's got a good, crisp bass response. I can wear these for hours without having my ears sweat or get sore.

 

The virtual surround sound is less than satisfactory. It seems like all it does is get rid of the bass and make the treble higher pitched. Also, there is interference when using certain apps. For example, I get no interference when playing video games on my PS3, but if I start watching Netlix I get a pretty unbearable static interference. Basically any movement whatsoever will create a squeaky sound. If you move your head a lot while using these, expect to hear the squeakiness of these headphones.

 

Overall, I'd say this is a decent gaming headseat. I wouldn't pay retail for them, though.
