Sharkoon released the X-Tatic S7 USB gaming headset, which is a revision of the X-Tatic SR, featuring 7.1 virtual surround using the Dolby Pro Logic IIx and Dolby Headphone DSPs. The X-Tatic S7 is otherwise identical to the X-Tatic SR.

The X-Tatic S7 from Sharkoon works both as a digital headset, making use of its DAC module, and as a stereo analog headset, plugging into the source using a standard 3.5 mm connector. The headset can hence work with a wide range of devices, including PCs, game consoles (PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360), portable audio, and static/HiFi systems.

The X-Tatic S7 is essentially a stereo headset, with a pair of 40 mm drivers enclosed in the ear cups. The DAC module (SCU) takes both digital (SPDIF) and analog (3.5 mm) signals, and applies the Dolby Pro Logic IIx and Dolby Headphone DSP layers, which simulate 7.1 surround. The headphones feature 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response, 120 dB ±3 dB sound pressure level, 30 mW output, and 30 ? impedance. The microphone is suspended on a flexible coil-based arm. It has an omni-directional pickup pattern. It features -58 dB ± 3 dB sensitivity, 100 Hz to 2 kHz frequency response, and 2.2 ? impedance.

Sharkoon is asking 119.99€ (S$185.75) for the X-Tatic S7.
