Hi, I bought the G930 as a replacement to my Zalman ZM-RS6F. The sound of the G930 blows the Zalmans away and the convenience of wireless headphones is great... The only thing that really bothers me is the G930 surround, or lack of it.
I play Black Ops most of the time and unfortunately, the sound spacing is very bad. For instance, with the Zalman, I was able to tell the direction a chopper was coming from, which is impossible with the G930. Even worse, I hear sounds in the right ear that I should pick up from the left one and vice-versa. I usually end up not using the surround at all, at least I can tell my left from right !
I have the latest version of the sotfware and suround is detected and shown as "working" in the console, just wondering if people have the same experience and / or have tricks to make the G930 perform better ?

Try right clicking playback devices, selecting the g930, and click configure. Then run through the wizard and turn off all of the chanels except the left and right channels. Then make sure channel phantoming is enabled and see how that goes. I've read on here before that this happens because the software is attempting to split the audio into eight channels, and then windows attempts to split it again or just a miscommunication between the logitech software and windows. Anyways, worked for me, hope it helps!

i have the same probem. Any given channel test can be heard in both ears. Ive tried many things. Im starting to think this is how it is meant to be. It seems like they take all 7 or 5 channels of surround and put then into one... then broatcast it over two speakers in the headphones with a cheap reverb effect to make it sound like youre in a room.
