Hello
I am in need of a great headset, and fell over the G4me Ones from Sennheiser. They look great, and from reviews, they sound great too. But i have a couple of questions:
1. Will i be able to run these from a laptop? I have no idea how it works, but they are apparently powerhungry.
2. Does it matter that they have no surround sound? I do play a fair bit of Counterstrike, and these will be my main headsets, with earbuds as secondary.
An example on 2. could be if i wanted to hear someone on ct side dust2, if they were coming through b tunnels into upper dark, would i still be able to hear, that they are coming from the right, and not just hear that someone is coming from somewhere?

Thanks in advance

I have the Sennheiser PC360's (The generation before the G4ME ONE) and they have the exact same housing and drivers, so they should sound the same. I will say that you don't NEED a sound card with an amp or a DAC, but you will benefit from one. They will still sound good with on-board audio, but sound much better with an amp driving them.

With this headset, I have never felt the need to use virtual surround with them, although there are free programs out there, like the one that Razer provides, that can give you virtual 7.1 surround sound if you'd like. The positional sound on them without virtual surround is great as it is.
