Psyko 5.1 Gaming Headset

In online games, sometimes the only difference between nailing a perfect kill shot and being a stain on the pavement is a few milliseconds of latency. Psyko Audio Labs claims that its gaming headset delivers "instant positional awareness," so you can hear your opponent's movements moments before he or she hears yours. The secret? The company's proprietary psychoacoustic technology simulates 5.1 surround sound without the use of digital signal processors, reducing delays to almost nothing and permitting real-time game play. So go ahead, kill or be killed — it's up to you.
