Sometimes you really need to ask yourself “what’s in a name?”. Seeing a name like Sennheiser, Beyer Dynamics or Grado will immediately equate with audio excellence…..but not always so much for the gamer.

Featuring full physical 7.1 surround, dedicated headphone amp and ten drivers, the Strix 7.1 headset is outfitted to deliver unparalleled gaming audio.
