The Psyko Audio Labs 5.1 channel headset offers some really exciting new ideas about how surround information can be delivered. Developing Psykowave proprietary technology as the flagship feature truly makes this headset something quite unique. Plus, the added design feature of building the speakers into the top of the headband chassis allows for two large subwoofers with a vented ear enclosure, which is another key part of making this system work the way it does.
Adding an external amplifier really allows all of the speakers to reach their full potential and is also quite an attractive unit in its own right. The included mic is also a bonus for those users who seem to swear by them when they play games.
Performance was very impressive when it came to the timing of the sound being delivered to our ears. Onscreen action seemed to match up very closely with what was being heard and the system felt very much more like a small surround speaker system rather than a headset with processed digital audio. Transitional sound effects were also very impressive and provided a good overall awareness of the scene being played.
High frequency sound has been tuned down in the factory to save ears, but this causes a slight shortage when using this headset for different applications such as music listening. On the upside once again, positional effects were also very clear and had a nice raw unprocessed feel during listening.
Overall, the Psyko Audio Labs headset is a winner in our books. It's not without a couple of minor foibles, though, which are to be expected. But all in all, this is probably one of the best gaming experiences out there. For those who are willing to save up the money, there's no doubting that fact. Today, we think they deserve some recognition for said innovation.
