X2 Saturn Gaming Headset

X2 Saturn 5.1 Gaming HeadsetX2 has sent us a true 5.1 USB gaming headset to try out and it’s not relying on virtual surround sound to get the job done. Each earcup on the Saturn headset has multiple drivers which outputs different surround channels for better positional audio compared to two channel stereo headphones and headsets. You may or may not recognize X2’s parent company, Spire, but in any case, they are most well known for their heatsinks such as the Thermax Eclipse lineup.X2 Saturn 5.1 Gaming Headset

The Saturn is not the only headset from X2, but it is their current flagship gaming headset. The Saturn in addition to its true surround sound implementation also features a flexible microphone, inline volume controller, and red LED lighting. This headset comes backed with a 2 year warranty and is only sold by Cooler Guys in the USA for $79.95. Local availability in other countries is listed under the “Where to Buy” button the Saturn product webpage.X2 Saturn 5.1 Gaming Headset

    Been looking to replace my CM Sirus Storm with something now that it’s durability is in serious question (Had to soder some contacts back together inside the left earcup). But bad surround sound performance, little bass, and worst of all, a USB only interface will keep me from even considering this one.

    I wish someone would just make a good surround sound headphone that actually sounds good.
