      Just thought I'd add that you are hearing the Head Psyko voice through the Psyko mic in that "Going Psyko" minicast.

      Thanks to James "Head Psyko" Hildebrandt for taking time out of his schedule to talk to us. It was very interesting hearing about the history and development of the headset.

      Haven't had time to listen to the pod-cast yet, but if it isn't mentioned, you get a 15-day money-back guarantee.
      The time starts once the box hits your door, so you don't have to worry about shipping taking up your precious testing time.

      When the courier picks it up from we should send you a tracking number so you can track it.

      little update here, so i never received an email with my shipping info, i was getting worried, but just now i got a phone call from psyko. apparently i messed up when i filled my address out. i have to say i was verry impressed that they called me. instead of me waiting for a month and calling them asking where it was at. im happy they fixed my mistake and looks like it should only be a few days to ship.

      well i finally got them, we had a few " troubles " along the way. which i will surely talk about in the next podcast. as for the headset itself, i like it. but i still need just a little more time with it to convince myself if the price was right.
