Razer Tiamat Elite 7.1 Surround Sound Analog Gaming Headset
If you're interested in really rich 7.1 stereo sound, then this gaming headset a great choice. The controls with this headset are terrific, including a control box that lets you switch between different speaker sections and control the volume of each one individually. For 7.1 surround sound from a headset, this is a fantastic model because it has 10 different drivers, between 20mm and 40mm in size, creating an unparalleled surround sound experience.
The noise-cancelling microphone boom is retractable, a nice feature to have so you can easily keep it out of your way while listening to music or watching a movie. The frequency range on the microphone is 50Hz-16KHz which captures most of your vocal range while speaking. The ear cups on this model have a comfortable design as well as being replaceable in case they end up worn out from extensive use.
On thing to note here is since a lot of games don't have native support for 7.1 audio, you'll usually use 5.1 stereo surround while you're gaming. That doesn't make this headset a bad choice, but you're paying for a feature you might not use very much, so keep that in mind. Beyond that, this is a solid candidate for your consideration.
