Not 2.1 nor 5.1, these headsets go to 7.1

With 7.1 sound came the idea that you could control the vertical as well as the horizontal. This was usually achieved with a setup that included not only an above average amount of speakers but also a knowledge of the space you were filling with sound and an obnoxious amount of money spent on a stereo system. Is it possibly true that you can reproduce the same feeling with an $85 pair of USB headphones? OCC says maybe ... but you won't be disappointed by the sound when you are gaming and you might just develop an edge.
"Now that I have made it obvious why you need a headset let me introduce the one up for review. ROCCAT has had a lot of new products released for US purchase recently after being founded in Germany back in 2007. One of its newest products available over at Newegg.com is the ROCCAT Kulo Virtual 7.1 Gaming Headset. The key here is the "virtual" tag in the product name. As it turns out, the 7.1 is a function of a stereo output rerouted through an included USB sound card. Thus it is not true 7.1 quality but perhaps it is still a great headset. Let’s take a gander at how the Kulo Headset looks and also listen to the beauty that comes from those earmuffs."
