Footsteps and bullets are heard from farther away, and the sound is very well balanced and is easily pin-pointed. It works great when you get an asshole who all he wants to do is sneak up behind people and knife them. I can hear him coming and drop his ass.
$250 headphones, 500+ hours on a game, seems well worth it to me.
How much did you pay for your headphones?
