Putting more than two drivers in one pair of headphones is a fad. Getting good quality headphones is the way to go. Most games target headphones for positional audio and you can run software for Dolby Atmos if that's not the case.


As an added bonus they won't suck for music.

Centurion don't suck for music. At all. The sound quality is really rather amazing.

If they weren't as good as I believe them to be I would have sent them back or sold them/given them to a friend. As I said though, they are very good. I would not want to rely on them for audio but then I have thousands of pounds worth of headphones. So I would feel that way. To your local noob though? I would say they could well be all you would need. The only thing they lack to me is volume, but that is obvious given I run amps and pre amps and god knows what else. Do bear in mind I am also half deaf from my days of competing in the car audio world lol. So I like my music very loud.

If you tweak a surround headset (if you even can, you need a high end one) then positional audio is very good. Better than any of the headsets and headphones I have, even with Atmos.

There are a few downsides though. Cable length is short and they are HUGE and heavy. So they are nowhere near as comfy for long sessions as my T5P or Grado with big cushions on. However, they are superb in FO4 and that was the reason why I bought them and shall continue to use them. So I guess in a way it's kind of like a flight yoke or steering wheel. You buy them for one game mostly, so if you don't play those games then don't bother as they really are only good at surround. Not tried them in a movie, but that's because I don't really watch movies.
