I'm asking because I have a Mac so it'll be a while before I can borrow a pc to handle the firmware updates.

I'm a Mac user as well, and while I like all the features of the set, and the generally positive reviews, I'm not going with Turtle Beach since Mac isn't supported. I don't feel like jumping through hoops to get a $300 pair of headsets to work.
I think I'm going to try the Astro A50s first, as I can get them (and return them, if needed) at my local Best Buy. If they don't wow me, I'll try the SteelSeries H Wireless.
