You'd look a bit of a wally on the tube wearing these...
And using the 3.5mm jack you won't experience any of the 7.1 "software" surround sound stuff..
But they will function as headphones, yes.

Seems my order is part of the Amazon Prime Time Travel trial... Great Scott!!

I meant watching Youtube, which normally in bed when the Mrs and kids are asleep so not bothered about how they look ... but if they wont be any better than regular headphones then i guess there is no use getting them

They're a gaming headset foremost.
If you don't intend to use them with a PC for games and/or 5.1/7.1 movies - I wouldn't bother. Just get a 'normal' set of headphones, you won't have an extra cable hanging around and a useless microphone strapped to your head.

P.S. You mis-spelt RedTube..

Lol, yeh thats the answer I was looking for. If im not going to get an amazing sound, more so than the regular AVG headphones I already have, then I didnt want to part with the money. As for RedTube, I dont like wearing headphones for that... cant hear them sneaking up on me
How does the 7.1 surround sound work for the PS4? Do you need to plug the USB dongle into the PS4, then have the mic and headset inputs into the dongle and sit very close to the PS4? Is there anyway to get the surround sound out of the aux jack in the controller?

No 7.1 support on the PS4 (source)
Yes, you have to plug the USB in - it won't work off the DS4 controller (source)

Edit: looks like you can use the controller if you buy one of these

Thanks for all of your help. Pity you can't use 7.1 on the PS4, that's the only feature I am really interested in.
Still tracking for delivery by yesterday...
I wonder if when delivered yesterday, my timeline will change, or if it's a true multiverse and there will just be another universe where I now own them?

Yes, you either use 3.5mm or plug the 3.5mm into the USB adaptor which is provided!

Bought my kids a pair of Sony zx310 for using on their iPods and phones. Really great set of earphones and for £20 can't go wrong with with them.
Ordered.

Great price.
Great headset for FPS games but really poor for other games - volumes just too low.
Stupid question: are there surround headsets that actually work for the ps4 then?
Just be careful with these. The plastic holding the ear cups is fragile. My lads pair lasted 4 months before they started to crack.

Don't have an issue with volume, here.
Did you turn them up in the Logitech Gaming Software control panel? They default to medium volume and can be boosted quite significantly.

Quite impressed with the faux-7.1 surround sound. Even listening to music - it sounds like you have 5+ speakers in your room rather than 2 strapped to your head. Bass response is impressive too. Drops nicely!
