got one the other day and this is far better than my analogue Tritton 5.1
might not work properly with usb and skype but in game is fantastic if you only want to use the headphones in 5.1 with usb or analogue. Info on websites does also suggest that team speak etc... might also be affected same as skipe. Anything else other than 5.1 with mic. on usb will properly both work well (4.0,2.0 etc...)
Something to do with their software (skype) CM said. You get the mic. working or the headphones working, a bit of a problem to make them working together, somehow today is OK (installed the w8.1 driver from their web site on w10 pro)
In analogue it is great but would have been useful with a proper sound controller (not supplied). Both headset and mic. do properly work in 5.1 from your sound card or onboard sound card.
Obviously we would not get it at this price if there was not any problems at all.
Very pleased at this price. Still a True 5.1 bargain and not rubbish surround
