I found these at a similar price elsewhere and I got them out of curiosity. I have gamed with a fairly extensive list of headphones, mostly non "gaming" headphones.  Long story short, Adata doesn’t know much about sound. Long story: From what I can tell the drivers seem fairly capable for the price but it's also hard to be sure since the tuning is horrible. I don't commend anyone that likes stupid amounts of mid-bass but if you do, these are where it’s at, though I still don’t understand why anyone would want to be here. Also, it’s fair to say as stupid as the bass is, for those that are so far gone that they enjoy the vibrating headphones even these might not be enough since they don’t have any vibrating motors. Comfort is fine on my average sized head though it might not fit comfortably on larger heads. The amp components are meh, quality wise an Asus DGX would whop the floor with it but it would have done well enough for this headset if only Adata did not again s*** on the software, still it can get decent positional info by using voice mode, which cuts the bass, and turning 7.1 on. The 7.1 is oddly fine in this case as it's fairly simple as it only increases soundstage fairly evenly but there are a lot of better starting points to positional audio which don't require software to work. The stand is pretty nice. There are many decent gaming headsets nowadays but most of them are still very bad. This one is very bad as well but unlike most which are not the best choice for anyone at least this one fits a niche. Also, I think they might not be bad as a starting point for some experimental modding but if you want to test this hypothesis you do so at your own risk.

The headset stand/AMP is a good idea which I wish more companies tried but boy is this one ugly.

Looks over-engineered. I'm happy with my Massdrop x Sennheiser PC37X and not in the market for another gaming headset, so that's all I have to say about that.

Tom's Hardware gives this complete set a 1 1/2 out of 5 starts and their BEST comment I can find is: Really, the Emix H30's biggest assets are its bundled stand.
TechPowerUp and Trusted Reviews both agree - in the positive "Nice metal headset stand"
When review sites need to focus on the peripheral items OUCH

Is this over the ear or on the ear? I hope it is completely over the ear, but the pads in picture do not look very big. The review said the ear pads are not replaceable. So it is a big concern. I want the pads size as big as Brainwavz XL pads.
Also, the main reason I want to buy this is for gaming in 7.1. Does it require additional software (in addition to driver) to achieve 7.1? How is its 7.1 effect?
Thanks!

virtual surround effects (5.1, 7.1, etc) are garbage: they mess up the sound in so many ways, it's not worth even considering. My motherboard had a lot of virtual DSPs, including "3D virtual surround" and several "sound enhancements" , and after trying each and every one of them I just turned it all off (my headphones were ATH-M50x).
If you wanna listen to the games as they were intended to be heard, don't put anything between the original audio and your ears. Just get a decent set of headphones (open backs are preferred, if you don't bother leaking sound and not getting isolation, because they usually have better soundstage and imaging) and a decent source for them (most embedded audio chipsets suffer from a lot of static noise, offer poor audio quality, and low power output).
Something like a Schiit Fulla 2 (or Fiio E10K if you're on a budget) and some AKG K7XX or Beyerdynamic DT 880 (80ohm is you prefer more bass, 250 for a more balanced sound, DT770 80/250 ohm if you need closed backs for isolation) is a much better setup than any fancy headset with a shitload of "gaming" features and fancy LED lights, just attach a mic to your headphones (like the Massdrop Minimic) and you're ready to go. It'll sound 1000 times better than 99% of the gaming headsets.
And if you're on a very tight budget, Superlux HD668B are actually pretty amazing for the price (usually around $30 on AliExpress or similar webs). They're quite easy to drive, so you won't "need" any other source than the standard headphone out, but they'll definitely benefit from a better source if you upgrade it later.

This is rather bias.. But, do not ever buy any headset for the "virtual 7.1 surround sound". That is the biggest buzz phrase that gets people to buy. To me, 7.1 is a joke. Default stero sound is far better than 7.1 virtual surround sound. Especially at a price point like this. The only reason I even looked at this was the headset stand and amp honestly 😆, and if you look at the top post, the reviews mention that it is pretty much the only solid thing about it.

Does anyone have experience with this brand? The headset and amp looks cool, but how well does it work with games or movies?

XPG is a subsidiary of ADATA who are established in PC storage and memory.
The 4 different profiles are not adjustable fully, but largely preset. Largely in that they fixed offsets from whatever you set the default equaliser to be. Making them in my opinion to be largely useless.
I lack a lot of experience with headsets or much audio equipment for that matter, so I can't offer much of an opinion on the sound. I thought it sounded decent, but i've had little to compare them against.
I find them pretty heavy and bulky, and not comfortable to wear for moderate periods without the need to remove them to allow my ears to cool down and get a little relief from the squeezing.
I am just one person with little experience of other headphones or headsets, so my opinions on comfort will not be universal, just what I experienced.
The AMP functions really as advertised with the note above about the profiles.
Has an awkward cable layout though, really suiting a PC placed on the left on your desk, the AMP to the right of that, and you somewhere the right of both. Should have had really been PC connectivity at the back, and headset at the front.
If the amp is important to you for the desktop control, it isn't bad value function-wise. But personally in the future I would seek an alternative headset. Anything with two seperate 3.5mm jacks, or a splitter into the 2 standard should work.
I won this very same headset in a contest, so this is an opinion of the actual product I have in front of me.
It is my goto purely because I lack the means to seek an alternative at present.
If you have further questions, reply and I will do my best to answer them.

That is a very thorough reply. Thank you so much. I have had a number of really good - cheap and expensive - headsets and some of them squeeze the shit out of my head. Plus, I have rather sensitive ears. So, I think I may be taking a pass on this. There are plenty of amps I can plug my existing headsets into.
Again, thank you very much for your thorough review!
