Using the Psyko 5.1 was truly a great experience, for those that have never been able to see how much of a competitive advantage a good set of headphones can make, I invite you try them out the next time you see a pair at a show or LAN. They truly...

Pros: I used this on both World of Warcraft (with max. Audio Channels, Sound Quality, etc.) and Mumble (voip client, like Ventrilo). I asked my friends on Mumble if I sounded extraordinarily clear and they definitely agreed. The mic. is definitely of...

The Psyko 5.1 Headset sets its sights for FPS gamers and nails a bull’s eye. Psyko Audio took a new approach to 5.1 audio and nail it as they offer the best positional audio I have heard in a 5.1 headset. The Psyko 5.1′s are bulky but are...

When I first heard about the Psyko Audio Labs 5.1 headset I have to admit it seemed more like a gimmick than an innovation. After all, if true surround sound could be integrated into a headset in this way why hadn't anyone else done it yet? To my...

I would like to say these things are amazing and great to use. The sound while gaming is just perfect after you find the right settings that suit your needs. I just plugged them in and went into the sound card and changed it to 5.1 and that was it on...

Well, I expect many of you will be feeling very disappointed now. I certainly am. With the promise of natural-sounding surround sound, mimicking a home cinema speaker system, and a unique design directing sound in a novel way, I was genuinely excited...

The Psyko 5.1 Gaming Headset certainly stands out from the crowd, it offers superior sound to the traditional gaming headset by featuring quality 5.1 surround sound. It's unlike anything currently on the market in looks and functionality. Priced at...

Great audio really can give you an edge in game. Like many top of the line headsets, the Psyko Audio 5.1 Gaming Headset work best with a decent discrete audio card. In our experience the better the source quality, the better the quality of the sound...

Made sure to read the previous page where we delved into some of the issues in more detail? Good! After over a month of use (who wouldn't love to be doing work by playing games?) we began to notice the benefits of these headphones more and more. At...

In an industry as competitive as video games, companies look for ways to differentiate themselves from everyone else in the marketplace. There are really only three ways to do that these days; make something really cheap, or make something really...

When the Psyko 5.1 headset was announced, I will admit I was one of the skeptics. Using 5.1 surround in a headset is often referred to as a "gimmick" by most naysayers, and to date, I do believe that's largely been the case, as the science behind...

The Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset is an amazing piece of technology that sounds great but falls on the hard-to-afford side. At times, it’s also a little hard to keep on your head but it’s never, ever hard to listen to. In fact, the Psyko...

We'd like to thank Psyko Audio Labs for providing their 5.1 headphones for our review today. These true surround sound headphones really changed my point of view on how sound should be used and incorporated during FPS gaming. I used to think of...

The Psyko headset does a great job at playing surround sound. For both gaming and watching movies, one could tell from where the sound was coming as easily as if the comparison 5.1 surround speakers were used. This can be attributed to the PsykoWave...

In my testing, I was acutely aware of where my enemies were lurking and whether I was going to get passed from the right or left. As you might expect, the headset is really heavy, and Psyko warned us that the built-in equalization settings were unkind...

I really wanted to fall in love with the Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset. It’s very expensive and at the price, it sells for I could find a set of headphones that I would be much happier with overall. As it is only the VERY hard core gamer should shop...

Soundcard used: Auzentech X-Fi Forte with driver version 1.1 on Windows 7 64-bit.The first thing which will strike users about the Psyko 5.1 is its weight; this is a heavy headset in comparison to other models, even taking into account the inclusion...
