Headsets such as the Ozone Strato use multiple speakers inside the ear cups for surround sound, while others like the Logitech G35 emulate the effect through processing. Most 5.1 headsets also require a USB connection and incorporate their own audio logic hardware. Psyko Audio Labs has decided to take a different approach altogether, in what they have coined as "the dawn of audio as a weapon" to improve positional awareness and reaction time for improved game play. Rather than placing multiple speakers in the ear cups they are located above your head, and use WaveGuides to direct the sound around each ear. The headset also makes use of your existing audio hardware, so if you've already got a high-end sound card you don't have to give it up.
