The Sony DR-GA500 is a high-end gaming headset similar to the Sony DR-GA200. The sole yet significant improvement that the DR-GA500 offers over the DR-GA200 is full 7.1 3D surround sound by way of a separate processing unit. Otherwise, the two headsets sport the same basic features, namely: an integrated boom mic and Sony's triple enfolding padding design.
The DR-GA500's 7.1 surround sound processing unit hooks into your PC's 3.5mm audio jack and 'upscales' audio quality into full surround sound for optimal first person shooter use. Its integrated boom microphone allows the DR-GA500 to function as a high-quality online gaming headset with high-quality voice communication. Additionally, the DR-GA500's triple enfolding padding design is meant to ensure a high degree of comfort even after long periods of use.
