These headphones appear to require software to emulate 7.1. There's someone in the comments section at Amazon for this product that used Razer surround sound. Onikuma doesn't seem to offer any software and these types of headphones advertising surround sound is deceiving because it only has one driver in each cup. Windows will only recognise them as stereo.

See if Razer software can help;

I downloaded the Razor surround sound app but it asked me for an activation code.

Does not look like that is a 7.1 capable set, a lot of those cheap headset makers stick 5.1 and 7.1 in their description but they really mean that it kinda sort of sounds a little bit like surround sound sound if you close your eyes and really pretend, and don't actually have the ability to emulate 5.1 surround.

You can probably buy a USB dongle to emulate surround sound something like this https://www.bestbuy.com/site/roccat-juke-virtual-7-1-usb-stereo-external-sound-card/6335139.p?skuId=6335139&ref=212&loc=1&extStoreId=820&ref=212&loc=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwrvv3BRAJEiwAhwOdMwFh3Fc1QjzWelqBs5osrbXLlEOUG0aC1L3fdg_CU4nmNPLKw52A3xoCuEkQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

Or replace the thing with a decent headset, the Cooler Master MH752 is good but in the $100 range, this is cheaper but also a good pick for the price https://www.bestbuy.com/site/razer-kraken-tournament-edition-wired-stereo-gaming-headset-for-pc-mac-xbox-one-switch-ps4-mobile-devices-black/6263312.p?skuId=6263312 and has a USB DAC for surround sound emulation.

This Corsiar is also OK https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-HS60-Pro-Headphones-Compatible/dp/B07X9W8CBP/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keywords=hyperx+stinger&qid=1593807359&s=electronics&sr=1-10 or
