I got them around the same price a couple of months ago. The sound quality of the headphones are great. However the software is crap and the headphones build quality in general is bad. Some times the headphones go undetected when you turn the computer on.Some times the wireless doesn't even work and the only way to use the head phones is to keep them plugged in. I tried this on 3 pcs in the house, all the same problem. One my friends that I game with bought these about a year before I did and he said he was having similar problems, and there is very little support from Logitech with these issues. I would recommended passes on these even for the price.
How would this compare to a decent stereo headset? I have some Creative headset and it works great, but that's only stereo. Don't most PC games not support much beyond stereo?
Actually a lot of games support 5.1 and a lot of newer games are supporting 7.1. There are only a handful of audio engines out there and fewer that are already integrated or compatible with the major 3d engines and for most game developers it's just a little more work to integrate support for 5.1 and 7.1 sound.
I'm not sure why, but even Starcraft 2 has 7.1 support.
I've owned a lot of headsets and these are my favorite. They are light (much lighter than the G350's) and the batteries hold a pretty good charge. The only two cons are that they are USB and rely on the Logitech software to render the audio and eat into CPU performance and occasionally cut out due to Windows redetecting the audio device (caused by the Logitech software).
I'm waiting for a good deal on the Astro A50's so I can move away from the USB downfalls, but these G930 will be hard to beat and it's no wonder you see them everywhere (youtube vids, lan parties, tournaments, etc) and hear them everywhere (they come with a distinct set of voice changing "avatars")

Don't forget to +rep me if you find one of my posts useful, it's the only way I'll know if I'm being a troll or contributing something that has made an impact on someone's life.
I've had these for almost a year. These headsets are pretty bad. The mic has no cancellation and noise filtering is awful. You can hear keyboard sounds to the slightest. The memory foam ear foams are hard and painful after a few hours. Sound emulation and range is pretty good. These are much better then the Sony's, but I would not recommend.
