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.

Great headset, horrible adapter cables

  • Eric Kamka,

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.

There is alot of feedback coming when your connected in USB since its not connect to usb directly. i would not recommend buying it for pc

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,

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.

Good, but some parts are better than others

Pros: Headset has a solid build, Amp allows for use on many systems, and has ports for 2 headsets.

Cons: Cannot buy second headset without full kit, boom mic failed on me quickly, optical cable very flimsy.

This headset is very nice, and has lasted me over a year now, but it isn't without its issues. First off, I have quite a big head, and it felt like the boom mic didn't reach out as far as I would have liked. It still picked up audio without issue, so that wasn't really an issue, until the boom mic died entirely. Fortunately, it also came with a bluetooth-type mic to use in the same port, so the headset is still fully functional.

In order to fully take advantage of the 7.1, you need to use the optical input, but the optical cable that comes with it is very flimsy, and I would suggest buying a longer, higher quality cable along with it during purchase to avoid the issues. I had my audio go in and out with the included cable. Even using the 1/8" port the audio is still very nice.

The headset plugs on the amplifier seem to be proprietary, so only a second headset would work if you want to use two, instead of any old headset. If they sold the proprietary plug to TRRS separately, as well as in this pack, I would pick another up in a heartbeat to use two headsets the first being the headset I bought, the other being any iPhone/android earbud with mic. The price to buy a second headset just for shared audio is a bit steep.

The setup may be a little tricky, but once it's up and going, it's solid. The removable mic is a nice option, and the whole system is very flexible to meet your needs. It's a worthwhile purchase, and it's great for long sessions. Even with my small issues, I am still happy to have this for my Skype/gaming sessions.
