Today, Razer announced the latest member to its software family called Razer Surround. Razer Surround is a software based audio engine that provides virtual 7.1 surround sound to any standard stereo headphones. Since we all hear differently based on our ear shape and size, this software will allow you to calibrate your virtual surround experience based on how you want to hear it. Razer says this will help give you that “unfair advantage” against other players, being able to pinpoint them with accuracy while they stumble around trying to find you!
The software is available now for PC, and because Razer is awesome, they are waiving the fee for Razer Surround through December 2013. What’s wrong with free, right? Should you be inclined, you may also donate to their charity, the Child’s Play Charity. Anyone wanting the software after January 1, 2014 will have to pay the full retail price of $19.99.

With the patent-pending Razer Surround audio engine, users have the option to calibrate their personal surround sound settings through a series of listening tests to match their preferences, giving them far superior positional sound over traditional virtual solutions. Razer Surround gives gamers a truly individualized 7.1 surround sound and attuned 3D audio experience, allowing them to acoustically pinpoint exact locations of opponents in game, providing “the unfair advantage” in gameplay.
