I posted a review above on this topic:

http://www.amazon.com/review/R1QQIE3TBYQZQ2/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

Summary - did *not* work at all for me. I could in no way delineate sounds in front of me from sounds behind me. I appear to be in the minority, but given that each can appears to have a single driver, I just do not get how folks are hearing such positioning. Either I am missing something, the physiology of my ears is different, or there is a little bit of Kool Aid flowing in these parts.

I can easily tell which direction everything is coming from , but I had to download Logitech Gaming Software before 7.1 Surround Sound would actually work. Obviously it doesn't work without that at all, but with it on, I can hear sounds coming from left/right, front/back, and diagonals in every game genre I care to mention.

It does seem that some games don't handle the Surround Sound all that well, though. I sometimes get little sound glitches in some Indie/Alpha games.

Thanks for the reply man. I appreciate the informative review that actually addressed the issue of whether the supposed 7.1 surround sound actually works or not. As a side note, I find it funny/odd that my online handle is also ScubaSteve.

No prob! Glad to help!

BTW, I just edited the review, but it looks like amazon is going to sit on it and review my changes before it goes live...but the major message didn't change. These things have a single driver in each ear. Real surround sound is going to require more than one driver per ear...spaced. Something like this: http://www.psykoaudio.com/

Always glad to help another Scuba :)

I play Smite (a MOBA) and watch twitch at least for 1 hour a day, and also occasionally play Wolfenstein. They all sound amazing so, yes, the sound quality is really good.
