Pros Surround actually works Inline volume control
Cons Not very portable A bit pricey but still worth it
Summary This ends up replacing my speakers 99% of the time as I live in an apartment. Installation was quick and easy. Although... mine did have some plastic debris stuck in the G9-to-analog connector, so one of the surround speakers didn't work, but that was a quick fix... (good'ol 8bit-nitendo-style blow in the connector)
Inline volume control for the mic, is a great feature as you don't have to go back to some config panel whenever someone can't hear you loud enough.
Pros Sturdy; easily accessible controls; good sound quality.
Cons Would only get them on sale.
Summary I haven't tested the surround yet, but the sound quality is pretty good (though the bass needs some tweaking). Overall they feel sturdy and well built. Would recommend, if they're on sale again.
Pros Great sound quality,Comfortable, Long cord,No drivers to install.
Cons The long cord is a plus but it can also be a burden getting caught up/under things if you don't have it tied up.
Summary I mainly use them for gaming and occasionally music. They work great for gaming because of the directional sound, When playing games I can clearly make out which way the sounds are coming from. And I have no complaints about music quality, they clearly play bass and sound great all around. Highly recommended especially if they are on sale.
Pros Great sound and 5.1 effect,can be set up using in line volume control.Really long cable included so no problems reaching back of computer.Kids think they look really cool. RMA support is pretty good.
Cons Cost alot.Heavy and take getting used to.Boom mike is NOT flexable and although it works great it is just waiting to break off. May look quite dorky to adults. So first RMA in march took a month+ now I have to do it again for the same reason.Wiring breaking and shorting out.Which is a good thing because both sets started falling apart at about the same time.
Summary Good sound and work with old digital amp unit from AX360,which these replaced.using included analogue amp provides plenty of volume and sounds much better than AX360 in all uses.Volume can be adjusted conviently using cable mounted control on the fly,including Mike Volume.The only problems were weight,boom mike is not flexable and waiting to break off and absolutely transparent to room sounds using original ear cushins,but an alternate set is included that is a little more isolating.However forget about going to your happy place like in a set of cans or noise canceling phones. EDIT:First RMA came in March.Second Starting now in June.They sound good but not very sturdy or reliable.

Cons Can be difficult to distinguish the different audio channels.
Summary At first when I tried out these headphones I was not very impressed with the bass, but after I enabled bass management with my Realtek HD onboard audio and increased the db for the bass it made me think the complete opposite. I was much more impressed. They did need a little tweaking to get out the full potential and I'm glad that I didn't feel like I just wasted $100. On a side note I noticed in the AXPro reviews that people said that there was no way of turning the headphones off. I don't think the AX51 is much different aside from not having the decoder box, but if you press in the Mute and Front button at the same time and hold for a few seconds they do turn off.
