Psyko Carbon™ is the premium PC headset that delivers the most precise directional audio soundscape in gaming.  Unlike other surround sound headsets that approximate direction through simulation, Psyko Carbon uses precision-tuned front and rear audio waveguides to channel sound instantly and naturally to both ears simultaneously, just like a 5.1 room speaker system.
