Picking up a 100W+ 5.1 surround sound system is guaranteed to make your ears happy and likely to occasionally make the ears of those around you upset.  Of course, just because your neighbours are unhappy is no reason to abandon positional audio in either gaming or while watching movies.  That is why products like the ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset are popular.  PC Shop Talk takes a listen to these gaming headsets, which even feature a switch to toggle between gaming mode and movie mode.

“The little cap on the top of the remote can be opened and some extra buttons get revealed. We can control independently the center, front, rear and subwoofer channels and switch between 2 preset profiles: one is very good for game environment and the other one is good for watching movies.”
