    True 7.1 surround sound via discrete neodymium magnets

    Each ear cup of Strix 7.1 houses five discrete neodymium magnets to enable true 7.1-channel surround sound (or eight-channel surround sound). Together with the optimized position of each driver and precise chamber mechanics, Strix 7.1 delivers realistic surround sound that makes every gamer feel the excitement of being right in the center of the game.

    Perfect for music listening

    When listening to music or enjoying other 2-channel content such as YouTube videos, switch to stereo mode for an optimal audio experience. This fine-tuned stereo mode uses multiple discrete speaker drivers to deliver sound that is more lifelike and immersive than any dedicated stereo headset on the market.

    Regardless of whether your favorite game features 7.1, 5.1, or stereo audio, Strix 7.1 will reproduce it in the most optimal, natural way. With just a click of the 7.1/stereo mode toggle switch on the audio station, you can easily change between surround and stereo audio.
