    My G6 arrived today.

    Found out there's a problem with sidetone, it has a delay on it making it horrible to use, the sennheiser was much better. Seems they know about this issue and many people have it but they haven't fixed it.

    The 7.1 mode doesn't help with positioning, someone was above me in game and it made it sound like they were right next to me. I'm trying 5.1 now which seems better.

    I've not tried that incarnation but I gave their old positional audio app a whirl - it did a serviceable job but was a little lacking when it came to the small subtleties that really rounded out the presentation of positional audio of the top offerings like CMSS-3D.

    Thanks Rroff. I might have a look around the web and see if anyone has done a comparison between the different releases.

    I turned off all the enhancements and it's helped with the sidetone delay, it's almost zero now.

    Cods audio is bad you'll get the same direction confusion in stereo
    i get this thing in it where audio direction can follow my mouse movement and look direction
    say i hear a sound to my right if i quickly turn left the sound will also move

    Yea it is poor, seems to work better in stereo mode.

    Overall it is an upgrade from the GSP550's own little box, which could struggle to fully drive them and had a slight background buzz, the G6 had loads more power.

    SB G6 and a mix of PC 360's (or 350's whichever is mic/speaker not USB), 598SR's and some soundmagic E80c in-ears for when a headband bugs me.

    Does anyone know what the story with EPOS is? As best I can figure out, they're a gaming (and corporate too, apparently) audio company formed by Demant, who had been partnering with Sennheiser. It looks like Sennheiser have sold their "gaming dept" and EPOS/Demant will be selling Sennheiser's existing gaming headsets under their own brand, and developing their own products too. The first of these is due to debut in October.

    I know most here use headphones rather than headsets anyway, but I gather some of the Senn headsets were reasonably well thought of. Looks like the GSX will be an EPOS product from now on as well.
