    Psyko Audio finally ships outre 5.1 surround sound headset

    Sale price of $300 is pretty crazy, but good sound might be worth it.
    I've been listening to Sub Assassins Radio a lot lately while sitting at the computer. But last week I had to do a 10 hour drive each way so I decided to download the past shows to listen in the car. The difference between my $100 Tritton headphones and the car speakers was night and day. Listening in the car sucked, and it seemed like half the music was missing. Good headphones are very worth the money.

    I've read some mixed reviews. The preveiw from last year gushes about the fidelity, but a recent one on techreport called it it's fatal flaw.

    Before I drop $300, it NEEDS to be comparable to a set of senns. (using 595's, but don't need quite that high end sound)

        The quality of the headphones is what matters, not the 5.1. The 3D effect comes from the time delay between audio reaching one ear and then wrapping around your head to the other ear, and the difference in sound level between the ears. The headphones shouldn't make a difference unless that box has hardware to account for this. Decent sound cards have this hardware.
