Features

ON-CABLE CONTROLS
Keep the mute switch and volume dial close at hand for quick, precise audio adjustments. All attached to an extra long, x-meter cable.
DOLBY HEADPHONE 7.1 SURROUND SOUND
You can hear up to seven discrete channels of audio data plus the low-frequency effects (LFE) channel, known as 7.1 surround sound. Dolby Headphone technology perceptually positions each channel in the correct location to reproduce multi-channel content the way developers intended.
LAY-FLAT EARPIECES
We know even twin gamers are one-of-a-kind. For a personalized fit, the earpieces swivel up to 90 degrees. And because they can turn to lay flat, they're less prone to breakage from everyday wear and tear.
SPORTS PERFORMANCE CLOTH EAR CUPS
Marathon gaming sessions mean heat and sweat. We covered the G430 ear cups with carefully selected sports performance cloth for a comfortable, soft touch even after hours of use. And they slip off easily for washing to keep the headset in top shape.
LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN
The G430 earpieces have been designed to be slimmer and lighter, without skimping on audio quality. A lighter, balanced assembly means you stay focused on the game. You might even forget you're wearing a headset.
FOLDING, NOISE-CANCELLING MIC
When you want to be heard, you will be-loudly and clearly. The noise-cancelling mic can be adjusted to pick up your voice alone. Don't feel like talking? Easily fold it up and out of the way.
FULL-SPEED, ALL-DIGITAL USB
In-game sound isn't an effect. It's a critical component of game play. Our USB headphones surround you with aural information. The sound is crisp and clear, and the jack on your sound card stays open for desktop speakers.

Reviews

Epic headphones. Highly recommended. Perfect for gaming, decent for recording, and great for music. Comfortable, and it's blue which is always a plus in my book.

from completed build Vulpes Vulpes

I've owned this baby for about 2 years now. So far, they're perfectly fine. The cable is still perfectly fine, the sound is still as clear as it ever was, and the mic is still as clear and crisp as always (I have people in csgo/tf2/teamspeak ask me what mic I'm using pretty frequently). I actually got this on sale for ~40 bucks at a best buy 2 years ago, and this has been the most reliable and comfortable headset I've owned. The removable/replaceable earcups are nice, too. I might try to make mine orange instead of blue.

I can't in good conscience only rate this 5 stars when I rated other stuff 5 stars as well. This should be a 6.

from completed build My First Gaming Build ($1500)

Wish the max volume on them was a little higher, usually not needed but there are some really soft video on the interwebs and you really need to crank up the volume somtimes, but amazingly comforatable for only $50 I personally think this is a steal since it's usally $80.

from completed build Black Rose

Just got these recently as an upgrade from my Turtle Beach X12's. They do feel fragile and a little flimsy, but the sound quality is great, the software is easy to use, it can be used in surround sound more or normal mode like headphones, the mic is clear and people are able to hear me with it. Would recommend.

from completed build Nemesis (First Build)

Good. Not amazing. Replaced broken 3 year old Astro A40's which are $250 headphones and I haven't seen much difference. For $40 they are a good buy.

from completed build SR2 Normandy

Coming from a Roccat Kave XTD 5.1... I'm not impressed by this headset in the slightest. Audio quality could be improved tremendously and the earcup material feels like cheap foam from a swimming pool toy.

Awesome mic quality and great connectivity (either USB, or 3.5mm jacks) is what saves this headset from a 2/5.

If you are looking for good surround sound, or good audio quality from a headset. Take your cash elsewhere.

from completed build illusion FX-1.0

I had Razer Chimaera 5.1/Razer Tiamat 7.1/Corsair Vengeance 1500/Steelseries Elite but I have never been able to use them for hours comfortably except this one and the Corsair (Corsair 50mm Driver is amazing), I wish they make 50mm driver for this model.

from completed build High End Gaming PC

The virtual experience isn't as good as I hoped but it's not bad.

from completed build My Current Build (AMD)

Pros: Good quality microphone, nice feel, comfortable. Cons: When using Noise Suppression it makes you sound like a robot.

from completed build The Republic of the Seas

Comfortable and 7.1 sound.
