Why would it be better? From what I've seen, multiple drivers are way more accurate.

Think of it this way. 7.1 is supposed to output sound from 7 different sides. The best way to do this is with a home theater as the 7 speakers are literally placed apart.

When you're adding 7.1 on something as small as a headset, this effect is much much less efficient. So have a simulated 7.1 will actually be much better as it'll sound more natural.

True 7.1 headsets are mostly a rip-off. The proof of this is by looking at the Razer Tiamat, which is the only true 7.1 head set I know (I know of 2 but can't remember the other brand) and they cost 200$. Whilst you can get a very very good headset for half the price. It costs 200$ because of the 7.1 which isn't that great. The sound quality for audiophiles is disappointing, and where you're spending 200$ on a headset... Whether it's intended for gaming or not, you deserve high quality sound.

I mean to be honest IDK what all the 7.1 surround sound stuff means but i know the corsair HS70 headphones are supposed to be pretty good

virtual surround is rubbish in comparison to true surround... I have both headsets with true and virtual … virtual is crap tbh …. true is far more accurate and producers so much better sound than virtual. virtual is a crappy usb sound adapter where the true is multiple 3.5 + usb for driver control...
