Did you need to pay extra money for those in-game items? I really regret pre-ordering L4D2 for that stupid baseball bat. Everyone has access to it now?!

No, if you pre order Rage you get those extra items, that's all.

Were these worth the price? I was just looking at them because I need a nice headset with awesome sound quality but I'm not sure if I feel like dropping a decent amount of cash for a headset.

Were these worth the price? I was just looking at them because I need a nice headset with awesome sound quality but I'm not sure if I feel like dropping a decent amount of cash for a headset.

So far I like them a lot. It hasn't been a perfect experience (see below), but overall they're the best headphones I've ever owned (including the Medusa 5.1 headset they're replacing).

Pros:

- VERY comfortable, even with my big head and glasses

- It doesn't sound like you're listening to headphones when using them. I had to keep taking them off because I thought the sound was coming from my speakers (it wasn't)

- Sound quality is very crisp and clear

- The surround sound is pretty amazing for the most part - the rear surround doesn't truly sound like it's coming from behind me, but all other channels are spot on.

- USB dongle connection allows me to keep my normal speakers plugged in so I can stick to using headphones only for when I can't be blasting full volume throughout the house.

- The range on the headphones is amazing. My computer is on the opposite end of the house from my back patio, and if I stand by the back door, I can still pick up a signal and hear everything clear as day.

Cons:

- Software set up was a total PITA. My advice, skip installing the software from the CD and just download the latest Logitech gaming software. It didn't recognize the headphones the first time, but a quick uninstall/reinstall fixed it.

- Some games with heavy bass cause a crackling distortion at high volumes (I listen to these way too loudly sometimes). Crysis 2 is the worst offender in this category. I've tried several workarounds, but I think it may be wireless network interference - won't know for sure until I have CAT5 run through the house and can stop using wireless.

- If you don't switch headphones to stereo mode when listening to a stereo source like Youtube or a stereo MP3, there's a subtle reverb effect from the sound virtualization. This can be fixed simply by flipping the switch on the side of the headphones, but it's still annoying.

I imagine for the price tag, you're looking for a perfectly working as-is experience out of the box, which you won't get with these - they require tweaking due to poor software, but once you get them running and tweaked, they sound amazing.
