1More might not be the first name you think of when it comes to gaming headsets, but having launched their first pair of gaming headphones late last year in the form of the Spearhead VR, they’re now following it up with an even higher-end sibling, the Spearhead VRX – because everything sounds better with an X on the end. In this case, though, the X may well be warranted. While it shares much of the same DNA as the regular Spearhead VR, including its 50mm graphene drivers, subtle RGB lighting and suspended headband design, the VRX throws professional audio wizards Waves’ fancy 3D audio Nx tech into the mix, supposedly giving it a more authentic surround sound experience than the usual virtual 7.1 systems you see on other headsets. Is it worth £190 / $200 though, and is it enough to earn it a spot on our best gaming headset list? Let’s find out. You’ll have to use its USB connector and download 1More’s VRX driver software to take advantage of the … [Read more...] about 1More Spearhead VRX review: Is Waves’ 3D audio tech better than 7.1 surround sound headsets?
Gaming peripheral manufacturer Roccat announced a new product to its line of gaming headsets this week, the Khan AIMO. According to the manufacturer, the Roccat Khan AIMO is a RGB lighted headset that promises to produce high-resolution virtual 7.1 surround sound, a 24-bit (at 96KHz) integrated sound card, passive noise cancellation.

Roccat added a new gaming headset to its product lineup today, one that it claims is capable of hi-res audio and rich sound courtesy of pairing 50mm drivers with a 24-bit (at 96KHz) integrated sound card. Called the Khan Aimo, this is an RGB illuminated headset with the promise of delivering virtual 7.1 surround sound. Virtual surround, of course, is hit or miss among headsets, so we'll reserve judgment until we have a set to play around with ourselves. Users also have the option of disabling virtual surround and using the Khan Aimo as a stereo headset. Roccat's biggest bragging point, however, is the integrated sound chip. According to Roccat, the dedicated sound card inside the Khan Aimo is capable of "easily outperforming onboard audio solutions provided on most gaming motherboards." That's a lofty claim, especially considering that motherboard makers have increased their focus on onboard audio in recent years. The Khan Aimo has stainless steel sliders for durability and memory foam … [Read more...] about Roccat’s new headset aims to blast your noggin with virtual 7.1-surround sound
