I appreciate they spent all the development money on the headset and not unnecessary drivers, but for $160 would it have killed them to provide a physical, dedicated LED toggle button?

You know that "virtual surround" is really misnomer.
Binaural sound is the one which gives real world like immersion with 360 directionality and even feel of distance with headphones...
It just needs good headphones, because binaural sound has specific lot harsher than any stereo music requirements.

I have a pair of Qpad and Hyper X II headphones and wanted to go wireless so did some research. Checked out the review and took the plunge and very pleased with these. Yes they're not 7.1 surround do you really get that in games.
Well pretty chuffed with this purchase and thanks again for the review. Sorry I know it's old this thread but if this wasn't on here not sure i would've got these.
