Not sure why you would want to spend so much money on high end audio equipment and then opt for "virtual surround" doesn't that just negate the quality?

The reviews generally seem positive but I'll keep researching as I can't do anything till July so plenty of time to find the right one

I use and fully recommend the Magni 3 + Modi 3 combo.

You can get them for around 100 USD/GBP each.

The magni modi combo is good BUT there's no way for me to plug in my mic, I don't want to give up my Game Ones and I mostly game and Youtube on my PC so my focus is more to that than say pure music /movie enthusiast, as I have my home theatre for that.

I actually have the Modi/Magni near my PC so plug the mic straight into the PC. I use a set of MMX-300s that have a separate cable for the headphone and mic so work out well for me.

Yeah you're luck I can't do that with the game ones and a video talking about these kinds of setups said if you try and plug in like you have you get grounding issues a stuff just won't work
