While stereo audio is great for recorded music and television, when it comes to FPS gaming you really need more audio directionality, so you can hear when someone is ahead of you, behind you, or even overhead. In short, you need a Dolby® 7.1 channel audio system, such as this 7.1 Channel Dolby Digital Amplified Gaming Headset from Monoprice!

The headset is designed to connect to PC, PlayStation® 3, and Xbox® 360 gaming systems, and comes with all the necessary cables and connectors. It supports both analog 2-channel and digital 7.1 channel Toslink (optical) input and is certified by Dolby for use with Dolby Digital 5.1, Pro Logic® IIx, and Dolby Headphone modes.

The headset uses a USB connection for microphone communications on the PC and PS3®, or a 3.5mm TRRS plug for the Xbox 360 and smartphones. It comes with two boom microphones, one designed for gaming and the other for mobile hands-free use with Smartphone. The TRRS jack uses the Apple® standard, with the ground on the second ring. An adapter is included, which converts to the older standard with the ground on the sleeve, so this headset can be used with any Smartphone, old or new. Additionally, it supports the Xbox Live® Communication standard.

Rather than using eight small drivers packed into the two ear pieces to produce the 7.1 channel audio placement, this headset uses a single 40mm driver on each side. The larger driver produces superior, distortion-free sound reproduction under both 2-channel stereo and 7.1 channel conditions.

The Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) creates the necessary phasing of the audio signal to the headset to produce a clear and accurate 7.1 channel soundstage, which provides the necessary audible queues you need to excel at FPS gaming. The DAC also allows for separate volume control over each of the 8 audio channels, so you can adjust it for the perfect soundstage balance.

Although this audio system comes with only the single headset, the system supports up to two headsets. The headset from the Entry-Level Amplified Gaming Headset (PID 9770) can be used as the second headset for this system. Although the Entry Level system is not designed for 7.1 channel audio, the headset can produce a 7.1 channel soundstage using the DAC's internal phasing circuitry.
