Sony has launched two new gaming headsets, the DR-GA500 and DRGA200, designed following extensive consultations with gamers themselves.
The DR-GA500 combines a Dolby Pro Logic IIx decoder with Sony Virtual Phones Technology to create ‘3D surround effects”. The signal processing hardware is contained in a compact external unit (pictured right), and the effect created is ideal for first person shooter games, says the equipment manufacturer.
Both headsets feature 40mm driver units for high quality sound reproduction, and incorporate a compact boom microphone.
They are made from durable materials in Sony’s ‘triple enfolding’ design, which aims to put less pressure on the wearer’s ear.
As an added incentive, from October 15th Sony is offering a free copy of the new Medal of Honor single player game with both the DR-GA500 and DRGA200.
