The Razer Tiamat 7.1 has 10 speakers (5 in each ear cup) and offers exceptional positional audio compared to any simulated 5.1 or 7.1 headset I've used. I can tell in BF4 when someone is running behind me and which side they'll be coming in while I'm camped out in a building. I can tell when things are in front of me or behind me; this is where the 2-speaker surround headphones fall short.

The lows are not as low as other headsets I've used, so that is the only drawback.

I did have to boost the mic signal a little, but once I did I had no problems with people hearing me.

It's what I currently continue to use. If you play a lot of first-person shooters where positional audio makes a difference, I'd definitely recommend these.
