Having owned the Zalman 5.1's for a long time, I can give you a bit of perspective on the 5.1 headphone effect.

First -- let's get the specs out of the way. They have three jacks for the center/front/rear, and one for the microphone, which is delivered in the form of a small hole on the side of the headphones. It uses USB to deliver some power to the phones, and provides a 120vac-->dc usb adapter if you don't want to use up one of your precious USB ports for that purpose. They are light on my head (lighter than the Zalman's), and the cups fold to be perpendicular to the headrest (like Bose Noise-Cancelling phones) for portability. The cord is wicked long, so you shouldn't have any problems getting it to the computer and snaking it around whatever obstacles you put in your way.

The positional effects of these headphones, which look more like "normal" headphones, I would rate as 'moderate' to Zalman's 'fairly good'. You can tell what's in the back, and what's in the front, but with some difficulty. For whatever reason, it's also somewhat difficult to tell rear left from rear right, even knowing which side it's meant to be coming from -- and I don't have a good explanation for that, other than it comes through both, and is a little softer and louder depending on where it should be. The sound quality is much better than the Zalman's, to the point where you might actually use these for listening to music. But again, a $50 pair of real headphones would blow these out of the water for listening to music.

The microphone works moderately well, but a boom mic probably would have been more effective, given that anyone buying 5.1 headphones doesn't care about the geek factor.

I play a lot of games, all types of games. I have owned 5.1 speaker surround sound systems, these do not sound like a 5.1 surround sound system. Of course, they sound like headphones. As for headphones they sound like a good pair of headphones, not an excellent pair of headphones, or a great pair, just a good pair of headphones. My issues with headphones are as follows: one, when you want to mute, lower/ raise the volume of the headphones you must press one of three buttons on the left cup. When you press the button they make a loud popping sound that is quite annoying when you are in the middle of a gaming session. The sound is almost a metallic quality to it and overpowers anything you are listening to. Also, the headphones have built in bass suppressor which makes them really lame for any movie, music, or game you want to play. I know its supposed to protect my hearing but I would still appreciate it if it were my option to turn the function on or off. Gunshots and deep bass notes sound like crinkling paper, which to me is unacceptable.
Other than those complaints they are good sounding when the bass isn't too heavy. They have a nice paint job which feels like rubber and they are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Overall, I the LTB MG-AC97's a Three out of Five stars.

Easily one of the "best bang for the buck" headsets out there! Microphone is touchy and picks up background noises easily, but sounds good also, your voice will be clear! Mic also takes to tuning and adjustment well, nice to not have a boom in front of your mouth/chin! It's just built in-to the LH headphone, and it's quality from there makes it amazing! Some of the plugs are not corresponding colors to newer standards, but is easy to figure out with provided documentation. Nice to be able to use USB for power and have AC97 style cables for better clarity! 5.1 surround is great in these! Bass response is decent, it does have some BASS circuitry protection, but it still reproduces bass very low, loud and accurately, can even rumble headset! They are comfortable, easy to size, and not very heavy, not as heavy as I would've expected after using many good quality stereo headphones. Sound output matches those of headsets almost twice the price! Volume/Mute buttons on LH heaset is also a great bonus, way better than an in-line volume/mute module (my logitechs always had issues with the volume sliders). Easy to set up, and tweak, no extra software/junk from using a USB only headset (they make this in that version, it's not as good). I highly recommend them to anyone new to 5.1 headsets that wants to try a nice pair without spending rediculous ammounts of money! These are great for gaming also, 5.1 is very nice in BF2142, and I use Vent which is loud, clear and also mic records very well in it!

Edit: Well years later I need to come back and revise this. These things were horrible. Crap experience overall. Crappy mic. Crappy fit. Crappy audio. Get a real pair of headphones and a cheap Asus sound card with a HP amp and it will run circles around what this thing was for the same price.

These headphones sound great, are comfortable to wear, and look great too. I replaced my Razer Barracuda headphones with these since both pair of the Razer brand proved defective during the short time that I owned them and I was not willing to go for a third pair in four months. Cudos to my local retailer for giving me full credit back on my Razer headphones.

Also, LTB customer service is wonderful and they responded quickly to questions that I asked of them. I am glad that I happened upon these headphones during a google search for headphones that did not just plug into a USB port; I like the individual channel connectivity that these headphones allow.
