Don't worry bud. Believe me, Slik has absolutely nothing to do with Psyko. He's just a consumer.

......... and just in case some of you are sceptical about Slik even having a pair of these things, I was at his house tonight so I took a picture to show everyone.

I spent more than $200 on these headphones and I'm not going to spend another nickel for 5.1 headphones unless I know it will be for something better.
We are just starting the production of the Psyko 5.1 PC headphones. We satisfied the pre-orders with the first production units and have yet to send out units to most reviewers. Congrats to the adventurous folks that want to be the first to try them.

We sent one to Tom's Guide in July and you can read their review where they said:
"The best surround quality of all headsets, it provides excellent directional audio..."
"The first time we wore the Psyko 5.1's, sounds had us looking across the room."
"The Psyko 5.1 provides the best directional audio we've ever tested."
Psyko Audiolabs Psyko 5.1 : 5 Surround Sound Headsets

In April 2009 Popular Science named Psyko Headphones as 1 of 12 Must-Have Products for 2009.

About why we aren't in the retail shops yet - it takes time to set up the distribution.
I know you'll be seeing way more about Psyko.

In the meantime we are glad to answer any questions - here or at our info@psykoaudio.com address.

Sorry we didn't respond. If that happens please resend. Pat and I share the questions. We don't have any excuse for not answering. We are a small company and customer support is not outsourced - it is the folks at the desks and in the labs designing and shipping headphones.

We are shipping now (within 2 business days of each order). We caught up with the pre-orders.

Yes we can do something for orders of more than one. Drop us a line at info@psykoaudio.com

Default Psyko for consoles

We are working on a console version. BUT! for now ... if you have an AX pro or AX 360 you can use their little blue box as an optical out Dolby Digital decoder and plug the Psyko amp into that decoder box. It's that easy.

Hi Technokat,.. I am sure that if you gave them a call,you can negotiate a far better deal.I don't mean you have to Horse Trade, just call. You never know who will answer the phone. When I called, it was the Ptoject Manager Pat McGinn answering phones at that time and I did indeed get a better price. $200.00cdn. plus shipping. Talk to them,. Who knows? If you do call, please let me know if you get a chance.

Hi all,

Sorry, we are not offering any discounts. We only offered special discounts for special events and introductory offers.
