I'm the official gaming headset guy here at GN. I have 2 specialties, and they're both niches (NHL titles and expensive headsets). But I don't complain, because gaming headsets are awesome. 5.1 sound drilled directly into my ears while my wife sleeps blissfully unaware that I am
watching porn at full volume about to make all your base belong to us. Or is that bass? (I love puns).
Anyways, the big news today is that there's a new player in the 5.1 headset market; Psyko Audio Labs. In just the past couple of years we've seen Astro Gaming, Tritton and most recently Vibras enter the market and start jockeying for the high end audio dollar. Even with these players, along with audio veteran Turtle Beach turning up the heat with the X41, competition is a really good thing.
I've tried everything out there except the X41 (and that's on the list), and so I'm looking forward to getting my hands on the Psyko 5.1 system. Already it has 2 things going for it: a really cool design and a marketing campaign with the catchphrase "Audio as a weapon".
Me Likey. Now we just need to get a unit in the lab and break it down for you folks.
Catch the jump for the full details.
