I hope this review gets to as many people as people. First I'd like to begin by saying something very important.

PLEASE READ IF BUYING THIS HEADSET:
Make sure to go down to the 'Speaker' icon in the taskbar and right-click it. Click playback devices find the 'Speakers: Gamecom 780' entry, and right-click again. Then click 'Configure Speakers' and navigate down to 7.1 surround. Keep clicking Test and then the Next buttons until it says that 7.1 surround is set up. If you do not do this even if you enable Dolby Surround in the headset's software you'll only be getting 5.1 virtual surround, instead of 7.1. It does make a difference, and is considerably better. I wish it explained this more in the documentation. Also note if you switch to stereo mode it still is normal stereo, this changing in the options menu doesn't screw up the stereo option at all.

Now on to the review:

First off, this headset in pictures looks a bit silly with the orangish red cables and what-not, but let me tell you it actually is very pleasing to the eyes in person! It looks a lot cooler than my old Razer Carcharias, which was just a lame black everywhere. Not only does it look better than the Razer Carcharias, but it feels a lot better too. Weighing a little bit more than the Razer's it just simply feels like it is constructed out of better material. It's a lot sturdier. The only 'complaint' about the durability here is the earpads kind of spin tough at first, but personally I kind of like that because if they were super loose it would be spinning when you don't want it to.

On to the sound...
I read literally every single review here on Amazon before ordering, and let me tell you, they aren't kidding about the sound. It literally blew me away.

Back Story:

I have had a lot of headphones over the years and the majority of them have been utter crap. I had one really good pair of headphones that were made by Sony back in the 1980s and I used them so much I broke both sides and had to tape them together to make them work. The sound was so good that I would have rather kept those beat up headphones than be forced to use the 2 or 3 pairs I bought after them. I was sad when I finally just had to throw them away and accept that it might be a while before I lucked out and got something that good. (It's taken a long time).

Fast forward to the late 1990s and early 2000s. I have gone through another 2 or 3 headsets. I had a Sony that was decent, but not nearly as good as my original Sony back in the day. I then went through Logitech, Microsoft (totally AWFUL) sound and some other headset that I threw away because it was crap. I even checked out Bose and was really underwhelmed by the sound. My definition of good sound is crisp clear highs, warm mids and booming bases. Not excessive, but enough to feel like it could be live.

Finally, I saw a $79 Plantronic "Gaming" set at Best Buy about 4 years ago and bought it. The sound was great, or at least a LOT better than I have had in a long time. But there were some quirks to the headset that annoyed me. The Microphone would flop down into position, so the only way to keep it up was with a rubber band. The voice input was sketchy and the device had problems working properly with Windows 7. Nevertheless it was a good enough headset that I decided I was going to give plantronics another shot with my new computer because I wanted a headset that addressed the annoying issues of my previous Plantronics.

Plastic snapped after 4 months of very light office use. (see picture)

I called customer service and was told that this is "not a common problem" but that I should have listened to the other one star reviews. I purchased this headset because there are so many great reviews on this which I agree, the sound is fantastic but please take this as a warning...The build quality is terrible. Unacceptable customer service. I know Plantronics has received complaints about this same issue that are not from Amazon customers on this same issue. If they don't put out some sort of fix for this common problem by using a better plastic or reinforcing it with a metal wire and continue to sell this product knowing it will break with light use then I find this as inexcusable corporate behavior.

Sorry I can't give this a higher review because once the plastic is snapped there is no duct tape or glue that can properly make it fit snug to my ears again.

Little background:

I've used many gaming headsets over the years as well as regular headphones such as audio-technicas and sennheisers so this isn't my "first time" with a pair of headphones/gaming headset, but this is my first review of any product on Amazon. I felt it was really important to review this headset because of the value that you are getting is pretty amazing for your money. I am mostly an FPS player most recently playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the last couple of months and I purchased this headset because I played back a demo and I hated the way my voice sounded in the game... Just muffled and barely understandable unless I was talking reeeeaally loudly. I was using my Audio-Technicas + Zalman clip-on mic which was a nice combo until I realized the sound on my mic was really bad. Together those two items cost around ~125 dollars.

After doing a lot of research and reading a fair share of these reviews I was a bit hesitant to purchase these since everyone I talked to constantly says "don't buy gaming headsets" since the sound quality wasn't going to be that great, but I obviously tried the headphone/mic option that wasn't that great so I gave these guys a try and at $55 I am more than happy with them after about 4-5 months playing with them.

SOUND QUALITY

The 780s are really great as far as directional sound is concerned. I *cannot* use 7.1 in CS:GO since it isn't an option, but I did try the 5.1 in game sound and it was pretty decent except for the fact that most of the time I have teammates in mumble talking and they sound... I like how another reviewer named it, "God Mode" where they are talking down to you with their voice echoing around the room.
