AZiO Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset Introduction:
What really brings a game to life? Is it the graphics fidelity? Is it the realistic sound? Is it the incredible physics engine that tricks your mind? I would argue that the whole experience is what takes a game and transforms it into something that captures your imagination and your attention. When any one part lacks to a serious degree you end up feeling like something is missing even if you can't pinpoint exactly what it is.
One oft-overlooked part of a serious gaming setup is the audio; more often than not the onboard motherboard audio is used with a cheap set of speakers or headphones. This doesn't exactly lend to total immersion when things like HDD access interference and overall bad sound quality interrupt your gaming trance with real-world annoyances. AZiO intends to solve that conundrum with its Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset. With its 40mm audio drivers and 30mm "Vibration Drivers," it intends to replace that stale boring audio experience with something that sucks you into whatever game you happen to be playing.
