"Comfortable headset!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

First of all, I find that the black on the sides rubs off over time; this means that the light shines through where the black once was on either earcup. The headband is clever and very comfortable. Sound is good, software is easy enough to use. Chat/Game volume adjustment is an excellent idea, but the cables are messy for me, and I find myself disconnecting it by accident at least once or twice a week. It doesn't really stay in place well. The dial may need more resistance, it is easy to accidentally turn it all the way mid game, muting the game or chat. The mic is good! It isn't as good as a dedicated mic, but it does a fine job. I find the dual sided mic function to be meh; people can hear my keyboard easily.

"Good stereo, but bad surround sound"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

For stereo mode, gaming is actually quite good while competitively play games like CSGO, PUBG, etc. Stereo sound is very detailed. Enemy footsteps in games is pretty amazingly detailed. But as soon as you enable the DTS:X surround sound, the audio sound pretty bad. It's like every sounds feels like it's coming from a hole or something. The Steelseries Engine is pretty dissapointing too because the equalizer setting is a standard one, not the advanced so customizing it to your needs is pretty tricky, you will need extra software to do that. I used razer surround sound software to do that ( even though it is a Steelseries Headser, I know ) for a better sound quality for watching movies and listening to music. And when I gaming, I switched back to the Steelseries Engine. Great comfort, good durability but cable management is a bit tricky as there are pretty long cables, you will need to buy some cable ties for better management. Overall, I would strongly suggest buying the Arctis 3 instead of the 5 because it is the same but without that USB connection. But if you need that RGB illumination and that surround sound ( Seriously, don't get it just because of the surround sound, it is sucks ), then get the 5, otherwise the Arctis 3 will be a better option simply because of the great stereo sound and design.

"Awesome sound"

The sound really comes to life, I enjoy listening to spotify whilst playing my favourite ps4 games and the Mic sounds awesome. My wife never knows when my headphones are on either because there isnt any residual sound.
