Sony is launching two headsets into the gaming sector. Each has been designed in response to extensive user research that shows what different gamers want from the ideal headset.
The DR-GA500 combines a Dolby Pro Logic IIx decoder with Sony Virtual Phones Technology (VPT) to create 7.1ch 3D surround effects. The signal processing hardware is contained in a compact external unit. This audio environment is recommended for first person shooter (FPS) games where what you can hear is often as important as what you can see.
Both the DR-GA500 and GA200 headsets feature 40mm drive units.
