This reviewer turned off the 7.1 surround and then goes on to say they had trouble identifying positional sound in Valorant? Well what did they expect would happen? Idiotic thing to do. There's nothing wrong with the 7.1 surround sound, this reviewer just couldn't figure out how to actually use it correctly. It's not the best surround system you can use with this headset (Dolby Atmos for headphones is superior imo but that costs extra) but for out of the box it's still good. The wires are too long if you sit close to where you plug the headset in but my guess is they're trying to accommodate people who sit much further away, such as people who want to game on a console.
