so volume control and a green mic ... I have the usb-Chroma-7.1 gen 1 of these and love them, but do wish it had volume control, but at the same time that is just something to fail. I have had units in the past (not Razer) that have failed at the volume control (hope Razer beefed up connections)

Razer devices are pretty expensive but it is still a wonder to me that this one has 5 speakers inside (the subwoffer and center speaker must be on both sides, left and right side) one side.

there are many makers that have 7.1 sound in their headsets.
I personally prefer the g930, if you want to expensive staff, or pick the wired one which is cheaper.

ok, I just saw the price...
Price: U.S. $79.99 / EU EUR99.99
so that's 111 $ for the Europeans.
Actually, logitech's products are also cheaper in the states than their country Switzerland(they have 9% VAT there).
Something weird is happening.

DSPs don't make it surround but make it "surround" ;)
