Razer unleashed the "world's first" 7.1 surround sound headset - the Razer Tiamat 7.1 - during the Gamescom 2011 last Wednesday.

During the Gamescom 2011 last Wednesday, peripheral manufacturer – Razer – unveiled the “world’s first” discrete 7.1 surround sound gaming headset — the Razer Tiamat 7.1. According to the company, the headset comes with a total of ten discrete drivers — five in each ear cup. These drivers represent the seven surround sound channels and sub woofer.

As posted in a press release: “The Razer Tiamat 7.1 also gives gamers maximum customizability of their audio experience adjustable on a sleek control unit. You can precisely fine-tune the volume of every audio channel, position, and bass depth, as well as conveniently toggle between the headset’s 7.1 surround sound mode, 2.0 stereo mode or external speakers as long as they are also hooked up to the unit, so you’ll have the right setup for your entertainment at all times.”

Together with the announcement, Razer also launched the “Experience the Power of 7 — with Razer Tiamat 7.1″ contest. Here, the participants must answer two questions related to the Razer Tiamat 7.1, invite seven friends via Facebook or Twitter, and “like” the product on Facebook.

The Razer Tiamat 7.1 is set for a Q4 2011 release, and will cost $179.99 (179.99 euro).
