The sound quality of these headphones is wonderful. The ranges are vast and switching on the Dolby USB unit makes everything sound like you're listening to it in a giant stadium. The reports I get from the other end of microphone are all stellar: crystal clear, noiseless sound. The construction is sturdy, if not a little aggressive and uncomfortable for extended periods. I'm not convinced this actually accepts 3D sound from the computer, at least from video games. It seems it is just enhanced stereo and the Dolby mode does more for movies and music than games. Windows 7 64-bit only sees this as a two speaker device, the manual confirms this.

I have used these headphones for about 6 months. I must say, I do enjoy them very much. They have the most unique sound that I have ever experienced with headphones. They actually sound like they are open air speakers. The first time I used them, I actually took them off because I thought I had left the PC speakers still active. The sound is very clear. And the volume control is very easy to use. The microphone seems to be a little bit of a problem. But, honestly, I have not used that part enough to make an good comment on it. I use these for gaming and music. And the nicest thing about them is the comfort. They are the softest most comfortable headphones I have ever put on. And I have had no problem wearing them for hours at a time. On down side, I did have some trouble getting it to work the first time. I think it took me about an hour to figure it out. But, once I worked out the process, it goes fine. Also, I don't think the surround sound is that effective. I don't notice any difference in "direction" from normal headphones I have. Although the sound is a world of difference. And there is an improvement from using the USB adapter over just the plugs. Bottom line....If my pair broke, I would buy the same one again to replace it! I totally recommend these 'phones!!!
