My experience with this headset was great; the headset is an all-around listening experience but shows its true potential while gaming. We really like this headset it had a few issues with it such as the padding on the headset so to fix this I adjusted them so it does not rest on my head, I was able to do this comfortably due to the earcups fitting snug. The other issues we had is how you can hear everything that goes thru the mic thru the headset so you can hear yourself. The last issues was that this great headset can only be used for the PC, when we tried to use it on the consoles we couldn’t make out what anybody was saying and there was no way for us to fix this do to the fact that we can’t install the drivers on the console, but the positives outweighs the negatives.
While playing one of our favorite games, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, the 5.1 surround sound gave a more realistic audio perception and sound quality which allowed us to get the jump on a lot of players as they tried to sneak up behind me. I really enjoyed that as I’m sure must gamers would too. Overall if you are looking for a 5.1 surround sound headset that delivers excellent sound quality, comfortable ear cups, multiple sound drivers, and independent volume controls the Oblanc UFO 5.1 is your headset.
Legit Bottom Line: The Oblanc UFO True 5.1 Gaming Headset is a great all-around headset giving the user personal surround sound anywhere via USB. If you’re a PC gamer then this headset is worth the price, but if you’re a console gamer looking for one surround sound headset for all of your systems then you might need to look elsewhere.
