do these headphones really have 7 drivers + sub woofer? Razer had potential years ago, but the crappy products and marketing like this is a turn off. I wish more companies focus on making a solid product and letting it sell it self, rather than hype it up with techno babble bedazzled flashy neon light marketing. Product design and build quality isn't any better than it was 5 years ago

"7.1 virtual surround sound"... I´m not 100% sure, but I think I´ve never seen a real 5.1 or 7.1 headphone...
