Gaming Headset - 7.1 surround

Hi,

Looking for a new 7.1 gaming headset that runs on Linux, any idea or recommendation.?

Thanks //T

Headgear + 7.1 is snake oil. Get a proper headphone like Sennheisser (or the cheap ones they sell in drop.com) and attach an antlion modmic.

If you “must” get a gaming headphone get a HyperX Cloud II. Surround 7.1 in headphones are just marketing and wont pass a blind test. You actually need a large physical space to produce a proper 7.1 sound. This is not achievable in the space between your ear and your headphones.

Cool - thanks for your feedback :+1:
Have been looking at the hyper- the price is okay if 7.1 doesn’t work out :wink:
