Psyko Audio launches their latest elite gaming headset – Psyko Carbon & Psyko Krypton

galaxy s3 covers

I own a pair of the Psyko Audio 5.1 headphones and I absolutely love them, they are by far the best gaming headset I’ve ever owned or reviewed.  Sadly they’re going to retired, but they’re going to be replaced by a new improved version called the Krypton. Psyko is also launching a new headset called the Carbon that is supposedly superior to the originals.

Psyko Audio Labs announces the next evolution in their gaming headset line with two new products – Psyko Carbon and Psyko Krypton.  Both new products are based on Psyko’s patent pending PsykoWaveTM technology, the same technology used in the multiple award winning Psyko 5.1 Gaming Headset.

Psyko Carbon is a product advancement and includes premier components and materials for a superior level of audio, design and finish.

Psyko Krypton will replace the Psyko 5.1 product and incorporates a number of market based improvements over the original product.


Both models deliver the most realistic and accurate directional audio ever and are designed specifically for gaming.  Win more and feel more of the game. Psyko Wave technology improves your situational awareness, reaction time, game performance and game immersion.

“We continue to push the envelope with a true 3D sound experience for today’s advanced gamer”; said James Hildebrandt, Founder and Chief Technology Officer, “We’ve had incredible feedback and industry recognition with our initial Psyko 5.1 product, so given the evolution of the technology and products, we’re looking forward to the success of both Psyko Carbon and Psyko Krypton in the marketplace.”

PsykoWaveTM technology uses the physics of sound flow to deliver true 3D surround sound, instead of faking or mimicking surround sound through digital simulation methods (such as DSP).  Simulation methods tend to deliver poor sound quality and cannot deliver the correct directional audio cues that must be customized for your unique ear. PsykoWave technology places the speakers in the headband instead of in the ear cups, and uses waveguides to deliver the sound to both ears. Sounds are delivered with the correct timing difference and correct front and rear sound flow direction to reflect off the ear, exactly like a 5.1 room speaker system. This provides the unique customized directional sound signature needed at the ear drum – customized by your own ear shape.  PsykoWaveTM technology results in the world’s best directional audio, higher quality audio, and no digital signal processing, so therefore no latency.
Both products are available at the introductory price of $199 for Psyko Carbon and $149 for Psyko Krypton, and are available directly through  More information can be found on the official product page, and on Psyko Audio’s retailer page.
PsykoWaveTM TechnologyPsyko Carbon and Psyko Krypton deliver true 5.1 sound from 5 speakers strategically placed in the headband. The sound is channeled and flows to each ear in a natural way which allows everyone to enjoy true 3D surround sound.


  • The headphone bridge houses 5 audio speakers (front left, center, front right, rear left and rear right) with a subwoofer in each ear cup for a total of 7 speakers.
  • Sounds from each speaker carry throughout the Wave guides to pass over the front and back of both ears, giving users natural, not simulated, 3D surround sound.  For a demonstrational video on how this works, click HERE.

  • Five individual speakers in the bridge of the headset to recreate the perfect room
  • Precision audio waveguides naturally drive the sound to both ears with zero latency and instant positional awareness
  • Simple setup -plug and play (no software drivers)
  • Psyko Amp with fully adjustable bass, volume control, and 5 LED visual direction indicator
  • Pivot-open ear cups keep your ears cool during extended play and hear others
  • Removable Mic – out of the way, but there when you need it

Psyko Carbon extra features:

  • New high performance speakers deliver enhanced audio performance and more bass
  • Tough braided Cable – tangle free and more durable
  • Gold plated connectors
  • Premier materials for superior design and finish

Simulation methods don’t work for most people.  PsykoWaveTM works for everyone.  Psyko Carbon and Psyko Krypton are designed specifically for gaming and deliver the most accurate directional audio ever.  If you play First-Person-Shooters, Racing Sims, RPG or MMO games these products are for you.  Psyko’s precision directional audio helps gamers win more and feel more immersed in the game.
