It's a solid choice for a gaming headset. It's still plagued with only decent audio drivers and the usual lower-middle quality microphone.

However, all wireless gaming headsets have this issue because first, high quality drivers require more power and amperage than your typical motherboard can deliver/process and second, wireless headsets have very limited bandwidth to transfer sound from the mic.

Overall they look quite slick, no fancy RGB and the design is not going to look dated five years from now. The fold away mic is great, the controls on the headset feel great, and the Logitech software is the best the market at this moment.

The construction is almost all hardened plastic so it's remarkably lightweight. They are comfortable enough for marathon gaming and the ear pads are fairly large and rounded, so nothing is resting or pushing on my ears at all.

The 7.1 channel is a clever trick Logitech uses help immerse yourself in the game. For example, footsteps to the left of your character in-game is heard on the left side drivers. it doesn't always works that flawlessly, but it's still very good.

The sides of the drivers has a glossy finish, not bad but attracts annoying fingerprints. I would have preferred a matte-type finish.

The price is a tad steep at $140.00 but for wireless gaming headphones that just work, easy to use with great build quality, I definitely recommend these if your looking for an upper-middle quality wireless gaming headset.

My first wireless headset, and I was impressed! The sound is great, better with 7.1 surround off, and my favorite part about these, the battery life is about 15 hours, tho I was able to get 17 hours out of it one time.

Sound is good. Surround is meh when coming from audiophile stuff elsewhere. Wireless and battery life are excellent.

All wireless headphones have below average sound/mic quality since USB power limits the frequency range. Keeping that in mind, this is still my second favorite wireless headphones, and I got it to compliment the Logitech gaming software setup rather than several software applications for multiple peripherals.
