Perhaps I can help with this, I have both.

I much prefer the G35's, for comfort and audio quality. Many will tell you just to go with a high end stereo headset, and that's probably sound advice... however the G35's are easily found just about anywhere and they sound great.

Remember, it's not real 7.1, rather simulated through driver software. Any stereo headset can be turned into a 7.1 surround setup with an open source driver i've seen floating around the 'net.
Also a plus for the 7.1, it's USB, so no case-buzzing in your mic recording and it's straight digital to your earpiece. It also has its own sound processing hardware, so you will not need to use your onboard sound for it to work.

Hope this helps :)
