It's the other way around. The Carbons are more expensive. From what I have been told,the Kryptons are similar to the original series.

Audio is extremely subjective. What may rock slik's world may not rock yours Jackquelegs. slik is only expressing his take on them. He's not telling anyone to run out and buy a pair. He's happy....let him enjoy them.

I have a set of the G35s and I know what you mean about the surround sound. It does sound iffy, almost tin-like if you will. However I find it does give excellent directional audio once you get used to how it sounds.

As far as the mouse goes, not sure what the deal is :(

Jackquelegs...with all due respect...this is a forum where members express their opinions. It didn't appear to me that Slik was reviewing them but only expressing his impression of them. As far as a review goes....HWC reviewers don't have a set to review yet. I will be looking forward with an open mind as to what they have to say.

Listen with an open mind only if you don't know what to expect.

What I expect is not necessarily what you expect. That's what makes us individuals with individual tastes. BTW: Why did you remove your previous post re:HWC reviewers?

Move the mouse to a different usb port or try dropping the polling rate, I know both those worked for others mind you using different mouse and headset but worth a shot.

Settle down folks. You've got 2 opposite ends of the spectrum arguing against each other. On one hand you've got someone only interested in gaming effects, and the other is an audiophile reviewer of headphones. What one thinks is great doesn't meet the others' expectations for the product.

I find that there are almost as many opinions on headphones as there are on the sheer awesomeness of Apple products.
