Question: How does the 927's compare to the SA-907's?.
I have been trying them and the Somics too. Here's what I've found.
Every Turtle Beach headset I've ever tried (Latest one I had was the Ear Force Tango, $299 at launch) had mediocre overall sound, but did pretty well with virtual surround.
The Somic G927v2012 sounds very good, but lacks in bass compared to the Sades SA-907. Mids come out slightly more on the G927, it just can't dig as deep (40 vs 50mm driver), and I like my bass. I even like listening to music on the Sades through foobar. Virtual surround works pretty well too. You can also use Razer surround with it, and the unit does 32bit 96000hz.
I've already had a sound problem with the Sades though. At times it loses amp signal and gets very distorted. Doesn't seem to be a driver issue, as the driver works with the G927 too. Could be a fluke, but get a squaretrade warranty and buy from ebay if you go Sades just in case. I have a replacement on the way.
Still, ~$25 vs ~$70 is a big difference. I tried the physical 5.1 G95v2012 too, and I prefer the overall warmer sound of the Sades. The 4 in ear drivers on the G95 are all different sizes and sensitivity, and the vibration unit fakes deep bass with a sub bass rumble, but it doesn't really have much in the 20-40hz range. I'm about to list this in the for sale forum, so PM me if you're interested.
