For those interested, they provide an analog version that connects directly to your 5.1+ soundcard. I own the old analog version of this headset (which is pretty much the same thing as the new one) and I could not be happier. Sound positioning is fantastic, the sound quality in games is awesome and very helpful (they do some tricking things with the fine details, I don't know, but I can hear everything that matters VERY clearly), but it's not so good for music and movies. It's passable. It's not so bad that it spoils the headset, but it's not so good to make it worthwhile for people who don't game. But then again, I don't think any 5.1/7.1 headset is.All in all, it was a great buy for me.
Sounds like a reasonable product for gamers who want headphones and surround. I would still recommend a proper sound card and good set of cans. I can't imagine the built in sound card is of good quality or headphones themselves, at least not for music and movies which gamers also enjoy.
