More often than not, when using 5.1 headphones, I am not impressed, lots of guys trying to make "innovative" headsets, most failing. Looks like Psyko Audio may have actually turned out a quality innovative 5.1 headset. Read on for more details of the Psyko Audio 5.1 gaming headset.
A couple of the most notable features are;
1 – the fact that you can have the earphones closed for more sound isolation, or you can open a set of ear vents for more external sound and air.
2- instead of trying to cram all 5 speakers inside the ear cups, Psyko put the speakers on top of the headband and uses tubes called PsykoWave guides to pipe the sound into the right parts of your ear. In other words they direct the front channel of sound to the front of your ears soundstage and the rear to the rear. The subwoofers are the only speaker located in the ear cups.
"We call the Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System "The Perfect Roomâ„¢" because they deliver the audio experience of the perfect room. That audio experience lets you hear where every sound comes from. They improve your positional awareness and your reaction time for improved game play. There is no DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to alter the sound, and no latency. They put you into the sweet spot.

This is a quantum leap in headphone technology. The Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System create 3D sound, in exactly the same way a room system does "“ with 5 speakers plus the subwoofer positioned accurately around you.
