E3: Best Gaming Accessory – EXEO Psyko Krypton Headphones
Well deserving of the name Krypton– Superman’s home planet. I would imagine if Superman was a gamer, he would be wearing these headphones.
Featuring Surround Sound Basics in a 5.1 surround sound system with six strategically placed speakers
- 3 in front of you: front left, cent and front right
- 2 behind you: rear left and rear right
- A sub woofer that can be placed anywhere (humans cannot detect direction of low frequencies)
Don’t let the bulky exterior of the Psyko Krypton headphones turn you away– it’s value in what it offers far surpasses any other gaming headphones my ears have ever experienced!
Comfort is one on my biggest factors with my headphones and one thing I don’t get with most headphones are a super comfortable fit; either they are too big and slippery (even when adjusted to the tightest setting, or they fit okay, but long gaming sessions end in sore ears. EXEO Entertainment found a balance with their PK headphones, that I really appreciated, since I sat for quite a bit with them at E3 and I purposely moved one of my tragus piercings in an usually irritating position, and I felt absolutely NO soreness afterwards. The speakers on the bridge portion are also VERY comfortable, in fact– I forgot they were there!
Professional and hardcore gamers usually look for sound quality first and Psyko Krypton’s offer some of the best sound you can get on the market. With the turn of a knob, you can adjust your bass and volume to your own taste — I turned the bass all the way up and it did not effect the quality of Call of Duty: Blackops 2′s environment whatsoever. To be able to tell the difference in weapon sounds of not only yours, but other people’s weapons was an eargasm of EPIC proportions. A less thought about feature, is the ability to press in the side of the ear muff someone is talking to you on, so you’ll still hear the game in high quality, but hear and respond to everything in the real world as well!
As a bonus feature, my colleague Shawn, who is hearing impaired, tried on the Psyko Krypton headphones and he reported that he could hear everything CLEARLY with his cochlear implant, which was hard for him to use at E3 since there wear so many sounds bombarding it. If that doesn’t sell you on why we chose this as the best game accessory, I don’t know what will.
