The Ear Force Z6A is a solid headset, with surround sound that "really enhances the gaming experience," according to KitGuru, though they thought that "when listening to music, the experience isn’t quite as impressive," and Maximum PC declared the bass response "a little weak." But gamers should be pleased overall, as MMORPG.com found the Z6A "quite comfortable for extended wear," and the voice chat to be "pinpoint clear." KitGuru felt it offers "reasonable value for money as it offers top notch performance in a quality package."

This is the only PC gaming headset that we reviewed that uses multiple drivers. The legitimacy of this 5.1 system comes out strong in games and movies, allowing you to get that three-dimensional effect that immerses you in the audio.

If you are looking for a dedicated gamer headset and like the ability to boost various channels for games where the sound is not altogether top-notch, this is the headset for you.

I found this set to be comfortable and solidly built. The sound quality is excellent for gaming and it revolutionised my experience thanks to its 5.1 capability. Suddenly, I can better distinguish where enemies are coming from in FPS games and hear things in-game, in all-genres, that I'd never...
