I have been gaming for a while now. I have owned the Astro A40 2011 edition, the Tritton AX Pro and the Turtle Beach PX5. The A40 was supposed to be, in theory, the best headset out there. While it beat the PX5's easily in terms of sound quality ( due to the PX5's 2.4Ghz frequency) and the pro's, it could not beat the Ax pro's in 3D audio positioning. After being dissapointed, it was time for me to go back online to look up a good headset, as I had to send the pro's and PX5's back because they just did not make the cut. I found a company called Psyko Audio. Since I really do not like startup compaines, I thought this was a waste of time after I heard of it. My thoughts changed as I read they won CES Most Innovative award, an award not to be given out so easily. After learning this, I decided to buy the Carbon's (Updated Psyko 5.1 from 2009.)

The Old Way:

Now I am going to use the Turtle Beach HPA2's for example to explain how traditional 5.1 is achieved. Traditional 5.1 headset's put multiple drivers in your ear. This is done to recreate True 5.1 sound. Out of all the headset's that have this configuration (Tritton AX Pros, Vibras, CoolerMaster 5.1) the HPA2 did it better than any other, and thankfully I still have it. The reason having multiple drivers works half the time is because all four drivers are shooting sound in to your ears. The HPA2 solved this problem to an extent. While the drivers are still in the earcups, they are arranged in a way that the sound is not, or barely distorted.

On to the Psyko Way:

Instead of having the drivers in the ear, they are actually placed in the top of the headband or "bridge." The sound is then passed down through these objects called "waveguides" into your ear.

After spending 5 months arranging these headphones to the UK The end result was not satisfactory. I used them for 10 months, the sound quality is amazing, the microphone is clear and noise cancellation is very good. The ear cuffs fit around your ears comfortably and the idea for the breather flaps is good too. The 5.1 surround sound works extremely well with the bonus of the amplifier which also gives you a sound indicator. I found most games worked fine with these headphones. These are designed for gaming so if you like listening to music or watching movies a few tweaks are required in your sound cards configuration software.
Now the downsides. My first and major problem was the quality of the build, the hollow channels from the bridge are glued or poorly plastic welded together. So if you have a big head this puts major stress on the seems causing them to crack and split. Also on this subject the hollow channels are joined to the bridge using the same method, this is a major design flaw causing extreme stress and they will crack and eventually snap off (I have read many posts online with users experiencing this problem). My second issue with these headphones are the weight! they are very heavy despite the padding under the bridge, they dig in and after an hour of gaming you start to feel the weight and becomes uncomfortable. My next issue with these is microphone boom, it often gets in the way ending up being knocked quite a lot and has no retractable option. You can however remove this but doing this too often causes the socket to crack. My last issue is the cost!!! they are very expensive! $399 on average! There are much better headphones for less money. I contacted their sales team and customer support and to this date have had no replies, very disappointed.

For starters, some clarification. When it comes to judging this headset i am not judging it based on its ability in every field available. That is just too broad. I decided to judge it in the field in which it choose to compete in, gaming. When it comes to competing against other headsets, it out-preforms tremendously. It is definitely one of the best headsets out on the market. The fact that it is realistic surround sound versus the standard virtual surround sound makes for a major difference. When it comes to virtual you can here things around you but it is hard to detect exactly where. With the realistic surround sound setup it never fails. It is much more noticeable where the sound originated and allows for a faster response. When it comes to games like first person shooters, this can decide who ends up on the kill board.

A few downsides to the headset are the fact that it is a little heavy, which is not bad once you realize that the headpiece cushions are removable and the amount of cushion is customizable based on what you decide to put on it. When it comes to using the headset for other applications such as music or a movie it doesn't really preform as well when it comes to these, but it makes up for it by coming with an equalizer and allowing you to adjust the settings to maximize results for each situation.

Finally, another great aspect is the customer support. I recently had a little problem with my headset that caused the bass to put off and odd chirping/clicking sound and i didn't know what to do.
