The package is very standard and comes with everything you require to use the headphones including the driver. One thing to note is that Zebronics do not have the drivers uploaded on their website as yet.

Perhaps they would upload them in the future but you can’t use the 7.1 virtualization feature without the drivers. Other than that it’s a simple procedure to install the drivers and configure the headphone and mic to your tastes. There is also a bundled EQ along with environment effects to play around with.

  1. Nice review.This is the only review i found which tested the sound properly. I want to know more about the 7.1 surround sound feature of this headphone. Is it really good ? I am buying this headphones for 7.1 gaming and movie experience and i am expecting a big difference from my Logitech X 540 2.1 setup.Please reply.

  2. Thanks for the feedback Duke ! 🙂

    Well if you are asking if this budget headphone can beat your Logitech speakers then the short answer is no.

    No 5.1 channel headphone that I have had the pleasure to review be it the Coolermaster Sirus, CM Sonuz, Rosewill 5.1 etc. could ever match even a budget 5.1 speaker system for movies or gaming.

    Mind you these above mentioned headsets actually use multiple headphone drivers to provide a real 5.1 effect. The Zebronics Iron Head is actually just a 2 channel headphone with a simulated 7.1 effect via software.

    That said using a speaker system requires proper placement and customization and there is a limit to how loud you can play it at depending where you stay.

    I always prefer my headphones for gaming over my 2 channel speaker system but for movies I prefer my speaker system over my Rosewill 5.1 headphones.

    I hope that partially answers your query.

  3. Very brief and nice review.
    My only question is since it’s usb powered can we use it cellphone or iPod ?
    Maybe with connector or something ?

  4. Hi Sahil. Thanks for writing in. Unfortunately no there is no way to use these with a cellphone or ipod. 🙁
