If you're an audiophile and avid gamer the Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset System is as close as it gets to a real 5.1 speaker experience. They are dubbed, "The Perfect Room" because you are always sitting in the sweet spot! This is truly a leap forward in headset design, and it's refreshing to see such innovation.

Hello Rodney,

 

the Psyko 5.1 Headset is a real unique product when comparing to other 5.1 headset.

Personally there are several issues I had with this item and that was the reason I returned it after three days. First thing is that you definetely need a serious soundcard.

And in my opinion it is a little bit heavy and because of that reason it is uncomfortable to wear it for longer gaming sessions.

And on the other side for the price of the psyko I´m able to purchase three roccat  kave headset´s.

Greetings

Wearing your headset looks completely KICKA$$ for me, Rodney! :)

Hey Rod! Did you get a lot of bass from your headset below 40Hz (especially around 30Hz)? I'm a bass freak, so it'd be nice if I could make the bass as loud as it can be without that much distortion between the frequencies of around 20 to 40Hz.

Thanks for wearing that headset for us, I was wondering how big this thing might be. I think I might get this headset or the A40.

5.1 surround does indeed improve your gaming skills. I have noticed this while using my 5.1 real surround sound headset in any fps game that supports 5.1 surround sound.

I didn't know about the speakers in the headband, that was kinda new for me.. I wonder if it differs a lot from a headset with multiple speakers in each earcup?

I wish I could buy computers for 5$

Rodney Raynolds (sorry Rod I didn't remember the correct spelling for your last name) has already stated multiple times clearly that he disabled the commenting system in his YouTube channel.

Having tried these myself, I can attest to the fact that they are the best surround headphones in existence. Nothing else on the market feels as comfortable or sounds as realistic. Not just for gaming but also for also for sound processing.

Hello, this so called "gamer" in the commercial is a quite fake one, (monitor, mouse...) for his gamig needs, stereo speakers will do

Considering it comes with a soundcard (or Amp, not sure) I would purchase it. My question is does the mesh stick to your hair? I had a creative labs Fatality and a lot of hair caught onto it like flies to honey, did not like that at all. It also looks goofy if your not using it at a computer or laptop, if I used it freely I'd probably wear a hat.

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.

That's cool and all but it looks a little top heavy for me.

I sleep fine at night knowing we are banning people who deserve it.  Tivon

That headset is NICE! good unboxing Rodney, I'm looking forward to the review.

I have the Creative Fatal1ty headset(green and pink jack) and think that's a very nice headset but I think it's only 2.1 I(think).

They checked if it worked or not before sending it to you... That doesn't sound so good does it? ;P

I'm not sure why it was opened, I'm was only speculating when I said about them testing it or making sure it was operational. This is not uncommon for some products to be tested or inspected before sent to reviewers. Although, as I mentioned, if you (non-reviewer) receive a product where the security deal is broken, inspect it carefully and/or return it.
