CORRECTION: It turns out that the ASUS Fusion 700 uses virtual surround based on Bongiovi Acoustics' Digital Power Station technology, not ASUS' proprietary solution. Sorry for the confusion!

Pro-Tip: Use SteelSeries Arctis Pro headphones on High-Res mode (stereo), use Equalizer APO with the Peace GUI, and download Dolby Atmos. Ta-Da: Audiophile quality headphones with gaming quality microphone.

My Turtle Beach Elite 800X headset works great for 7.1 surround sound. Worth the $300 price tag. Sounds come from an accurate direction. Even though it is a console headset, to use it properly the dock has to be connected to the source so you can use them on PC.
