Tuned for FPS and long hours of gaming, the new lineup of headset features 7.1 Dolby and Sony Virtual Phones tech implementation.


Sony has launched two new gaming headsets, the DR-GA500 and DR-GA200, designed specifically for gamers after ‘extensive research’.

The DR-GA500 supports Dolby Pro Logic IIx and uses Sony Virtual Phones Technology to create “convincing” 7.1ch 3D surround effects.  The headset also comes with a separate processor unit. Sony says that it makes for “perfect” first person shooter experience (as demonstrated in the trailer below).

DR-GA500 is the budget-friendly version of the two, and while not specifically detailed in the press release, promises superb sound quality. Both the headsets will feature 40mm drive units and Sony’s ‘triple enfolding’ design for comfortable wear during late hours of gaming.

The headsets are planned to release sometime in September (and are PC compatible only) and will come with a free copy of EA’s Medal of Honor, which releases on October 15th. Price wasn’t mentioned, however, expect it cost no less than your right arm.
