    Or just play music via the PC media & use the media keys on your KB to pause, play & skip !

    I actually use audio splitters to listen to music and videos on my tablet while gaming, is much easier to have an easy to use touch screen than alt tabbing and messing around with apps that waste resources. But even with the cable mess, I have no interest in the headset.

    For that price, I would expect it to have 50mm drivers and look much better.
    The control pod only makes some sense, but I can also see it as a hindrance.

    I think it's a good idea, and I wish I'd thought of it!

    To the people thinking, "I can do this on my PC, blah": Okay but this works with anything, and having a simple crossfade wheel is a great decision - no fiddling about with relative levels, and it really couldn't be quicker than this. Feeding calls into that, automatic levelling, without you having to touch controls? I'm too cheap for that and I don't care about games so much that I won't pause them to talk with my friends, but for someone who wants those features I think it's a really good package, and a decent price. £100 is not bad at all for a dedicated mixer, a noise-cancelling mic and headphones.

    I just use a mixamp. Dolby headphone amp with mixer and enough inputs to keep me happy. Also can be used as a usb sound card. Upto 7.1@44khz. Does the job for me, new version has different modes. Bad thing...£100 just for the amp. No headset.
