Not much experience with 7.1 cans, But have some knowledge on USB audio.

You might want to check the specs of the USB chip they are using in them cans.
Usually anything audio that has a USB connection has it's own sound processor.
When you plug it in, It installs drivers and when you use it, It bypasses your on-board sound or sound card.
Most USB sound processors are not as good as modern on-board/dedicated sound card, Latency is slower and bit-rates are usually lower. Add to the fact they are synthesizing 7.1 sound too, not sure what the result would be.

Still though, for £11.99 it's a canny deal.
Let us know how they sound :)

I've already got a set of Creative ones that do 5.1 - these were more, as buggrit says, as it would be rude not to at one-sixth the price. ;)
