Anyone have a pair of Psyko 5.1's? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
For surround gaming they are great, positioning is excellent. If you are looking at getting these you probably don't care about the price. And the sound can be heard by people in the room. They are very confortable so playing games for hours is no problem.

I got them when they first released and the audio quality for movies and music sukked bad, I mean real bad. I RMA'd them and they must have improved the speakers because my 2nd set is much better. Watching movies with them now is a good experience. I'm no audiophile though. Since you are a huge audio freak you should probably test drive them first. I think Fry's sells them.

I use a Buttkicker with these to feel the explosions. Great experience. Works well with a nice bass line and movies too.

No such thing. Soundstages vary wildly between different headphones of the same brand, unless you have a targeted audience and specific sound like Grado which Audio Technica doesn't. the M50 soundstage is quite small actually.

Audio Technica AD700 + Xonar DX OR refurb'ed beyerdynamic DT770 32ohm + Xonar DX =

MUCH better value for money.

I should have explained more clearly. The Buttkicker is something completely separate. Its a transducer that hooks to your chair and shakes during low sounds. You get the shaking of a subwoofer without the sound. It has its own amp and the chair vibrates for explosions and such. Its a great compliment to a set of cans.
