Psyko Audio unveils Carbon and Krypton gaming headsets

first_imgPsyko Audio prides itself on rich, loud, and immersive gaming audio. One of their headsets, the Psyko 5.1, featured speaker elements all over the headset itself, including the band that rests on the top of your head, for a fully immersive experience. Now, the spiritual successors to the 5.1 have arrived in the form of the Psyko Carbon and the Psyko Krypton: two high-end gaming headsets that look sharp and hopefully sound sharper.The Psyko Carbon and Krypton will replace the Psyko 5.1 Gaming Headset, which was initially released back in 2009. Both headsets feature the company’s trademark PsykoWave technology, which adds rich, directional audio and immersive feel by adding speakers to the headphones and giving the user additional audio controls to tweak and personalize their audio experience.In fact, with most traditional headsets, you have two speakers: one over each ear. In the Psyko Carbon and Krypton, you have two subwoofers over each ear in the earcups, and the band across the top of your head has all of the speakers in it, including the center channel that rests directly over the top of your head, and the front and rear channels for each side moving out towards your ears from there.The Krypton is really the true successor to the original Psyko 5.1 Gaming Headset: it features 5.1 channel audio, a removable boom microphone, in-line audio controls so you can change the volume and toggle your microphone on or off quickly, and an external amplifier that powers the headset and gives you volume, processing, and EQ controls. The Carbon is the premium version, which offers the same features but trades the gunmetal and red design for a sleek black and red look and gold-plated audio connector cables.Both models are available to pre-order now. The Krypton is available for $149.99 and the Carbon for $199.99.Read more at Psyko Audiolast_img read more
