The major and inexcusable problem is with their "7.1" USB control adapter, huge frequency passthrough.
When I first received it I thought it was a defective part so I contacted Kingston and they gladly sent another one, same exact problem.
The USB creates a constant white noise that is exaggerated with subtle low volume sound changes, it's completely unacceptable for a part that you literally pay extra to have. The faked 7.1 is great and I really love to use it in game but the constant boost in this white background noise is ridiculous.
I've tested it with and without the dongle on 4 separate machines with 3 separate OS' and all the same, it's the USB dongle that is poorly made.
For a nearly $100 headset I'm quite disappointed that they would cheap out on literally the only reason people pay an extra $20 for.
On the plus side, Kingston support is really great so no problems there.
One (and only) con so far is that the wire easily gets twisted, as others have said in their reviews, but this is minor.
Update 08/18 - so after some time I've found a VERY annoying quirk of this headset (enough to drop it by two stars). Because of that twisting (or perhaps it's unrelated, not sure) the cord has become somewhat frayed. It doesn't look that bad but now when I shift in my chair the wrong way, the headset crackles and cuts out and I need to find the right placement of the cord to get it to come back on. It happens more and more frequently and has become such a source of frustration that I am considering getting a different headset or using an older one even though I still love the sound and noise cancellation of these headphones.
UPDATE 2: So I was scrolling past old reviews and realized I hadn't updated this one. Well, the issue was the (non-detachable) cord - so unfortunately, contrary to some of the comments, I can't just replace it without re-splicing. However, HyperX DID honor their warranty without any hassle whatsoever. It's been awhile since this happened, but I believe I had to pay for return shipping, then they basically shipped me a completely new headset. As of 11/11/2019 it's still going strong (this one with no fraying, though it does twist up still) and I'm giving it back a star for their stellar returns and customer service!
