*You HAVE to manually set up the surround sound per the instructions and select the correct default devices or it will NOT WORK.
The main selling feature here is that Sennheiser has come up with simulated 7.1 surround sound (with a plethora of features) to compete with dolby's. Having used both types by sennheiser I can say that this is both better and likely not worth the price. Many lower end games do better without 7.1 enabled (fortnite) while some games give better positional data with it enabled (Overwatch) and this gives you the ability to turn it on and off rather quickly. When you turn off 7.1 surround sound, you still get the games surround sound so it really comes down to playing with settings in each game.
The larger benefit is being able to tune the reverberation to indoor or outdoor games to add to the positional accuracy. In Overwatch for example it's much easier to pinpoint that and enemy is 30 degrees to the right and above you with this enabled.
As far as gaming goes it's passable. When I was using stereo through the computer it was pretty easy to Ballance com volume with game volume but with the simulated 7.1 its wierdly difficult to keep one from drowning the other. The simulated 7.1 opens up the sound a bit to make sounds seem like they are coming from farther away but when it tries to play voice comms at the same time it doesn't work so great. Switching to 2.0 with headphones doesn't seem to fix the problem either.
Beyond that the EQs are lame, and the main benefit I bought it for was for a one stop volume and source control system to manage sound between the headphones and speakers. It does that but the hiccups keep me from being completely satisfied.
I paired this with a Sennheiser Game One headset and couldn't be happier with my decision and highly recommend to anyone willing to shell out the money.
