    7.1 Dolby Digital Amplified Gaming Headset for Xbox® One, PS4®, and PC - BLACK

    While stereo audio is great for recorded music and television, when it comes to FPS gaming you really need more audio directionality, so you can hear when someone is ahead of you, behind you, or even overhead. In short, you need a Dolby® 7.1 channel audio system, such as this 7.1 Channel Dolby Digital Amplified Gaming Headset from Monoprice!

    The headset is designed to connect to PC, PlayStation® 4, and Xbox® One gaming systems, and comes with all the necessary cables and connectors. It supports both analog 2-channel and digital 7.1 channel Toslink (optical) input and is certified by Dolby for use with Dolby Digital 5.1, Pro Logic® IIx, and Dolby Headphone modes.

    The headset uses a USB connection for microphone communications on the PC and PS4®, or a 3.5mm TRRS plug for the Xbox One and smartphones. It comes with two boom microphones, one designed for gaming and the other for mobile hands-free use with Smartphone. The TRRS jack uses the Apple® standard, with the ground on the second ring. An adapter is included, which converts to the older standard with the ground on the sleeve, so this headset can be used with any Smartphone, old or new. Additionally, it supports the Xbox Live® Communication standard.

    Rather than using eight small drivers packed into the two ear pieces to produce the 7.1 channel audio placement, this headset uses a single 40mm driver on each side. The larger driver produces superior, distortion-free sound reproduction under both 2-channel stereo and 7.1 channel conditions.

    The Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) creates the necessary phasing of the audio signal to the headset to produce a clear and accurate 7.1 channel soundstage, which provides the necessary audible queues you need to excel at FPS gaming. The DAC also allows for separate volume control over each of the 8 audio channels, so you can adjust it for the perfect soundstage balance.

    Although this audio system comes with only the single headset, the system supports up to two headsets. The headset from the Entry-Level Amplified Gaming Headset (PID 9770) can be used as the second headset for this system. Although the Entry Level system is not designed for 7.1 channel audio, the headset can produce a 7.1 channel soundstage using the DAC's internal phasing circuitry.

    Not too shabby

    Pros: Comfortable, great sound, clarity, value

    Cons: Wired-although being wired gives better performance, occasionally I wish for the freedom from wires that wireless offers

    Bought these after letting my home theater stay with the house we sold. Home theater was a 5.1 Sony out of the box which wasn't a custom set up but still sounded pretty good. These headphones are not a 1 to 1 replacement of a full surround sound set but do sound great. Even though they state that they are 7.1, to me it still does not have the same dimension that truly separated speakers set around the room have. With that said, their sound is great. Decent amount of bass with immersive sound (just not quite as easy to pinpoint sounds as it was with home theater). They do pull out sounds that I was missing with the home theater, such as breathing sounds and some of the footsteps.(Batttlefield game)
    I love the mic feature and the clarity. It has separate volumes for voice and sound which is a plus. The headset itself is comfortable. It states that it is for PS4, xbox one, etc. but also works with last gen systems.
    Overall, very satisfied with the product and would recommend it, or buy it again if need be.

    Great headset, horrible adapter cables

    Pros: The headset themselves are amazing.
    removable boom
    can unplug headset from the volume box
    adapters for anything that plays sound

    Cons: The cables that came with it...

    This headset is amazingly comfortable. I've played with it for 8 hours and not once felt the need to remove it or got hot. The sound quality is amazing. Playing fps like battlefield is completely different with these on. I really like how almost everything has a plug to the next part of the system instead of everything just being 1 giant thing that can't be unatached.the one that I don't like were the cables...

    The optical is extremely thin and fragile and short. Get a nicer one if you want it to last.
    The 2.5 to 3.5 Xbox live adapter stopped working after 2 weeks. It was always loose when plugged into controller and would give off static, after a week it started losing mic and after 2 weeks it stopped working all together. Tested another cable and it works again. So prettty much...get better adapter cables and then its a 10/10.

    Thank you for your review and truly sorry to hear about the issues experienced with PID 9771. If I may ask, what devices have you tried with this headset so far? Does this issue persist with all devices or just the PC? Also, does this happen with all USB ports on that computer? Please let me know so we can look into the issue further. Thank you!

    center channel dialogue sounds as a surround channel

    • Rodolfo,
    •  Lansdowne, VA 
    • 11/21/2014 10:37:24 PM

    Pros: Price. Functionality.

    Cons: Center channel sounds like a surround channel echo

    I got this unit just for private listening of multi-channel surround movies, but is not very useful for that purpose because the dialogue that should be heard from the center channel is actually reproduced with abundant reverb, similar to a surround channel, making more difficult to understand the dialogue. One way out is to reproduce the soundtrack as L/R but that defeats the purpose of the headphone for movies.

    I will continue testing but it appears I will have to return the unit.
