This headset was purchased with gaming needs in mind, however it works great for listening to music as well as watching movies in surround sound. It has a great deep bass which makes it ideal for all needs.
It was purchased brand new from eBay about a year and a half ago, for a bargain price of $45 (compared to retail around $75). The basic specs of the headset include a retractable microphone (which I have had no problems with yet and still works with great clarity) and one of the key features includes the ability of the headset to play in 7.1 Virtual Surround Sound, which in my opinion is very like the booming theater-like sound quality. It works great for gaming and hearing the very precide sounds, including footsteps and pin drops from a room away! This headset was designed for and by gamers, and so far I've had only good experiences with it.
I recommend this headset to anyone looking for a great quality headset that will last and perform for years to come, but cannot afford a $200 headset. I've had it for over a year and a half and it still performs like new :)
