If you’ll recall our trip to CES back in January, you may also remember me mentioning a pair of headphones from Psyko. These somewhat strange-looking headphones go above and beyond the traditional gaming headset. By utilizing special “Psykowave guides” it is able to realistically pipe 5.1 surround sound from 5 individual speakers. This provides some of the most accurate 3D sound available in a contained unit.
Why do I bring these up you ask? Well the company has announced that their flagship product has finally hit store shelves. That’s right, you can go into Fry’s, or log onto Newegg and pick up a Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System. This comes complete with a detachable mic and a dedicated amplifier for tweaking the sound to your liking. Yes, that $299 price is still salty any way you slice it. However, if you’re the kind of gamer that is willing to go that extra mile for an edge, these may be for you.

I have used quite a few different gaming headsets but, the best resource I found to get an impartial view on them can be found at http://www.gamingheadsetreport…, they are constantly adding new headset reviews.
