sharkoonLooking for a new gaming headset that does not come from traditional powerhouses like Razer and Logitech? Well, you can always opt for Sharkoon’s X-Tactic SR, as the company prepares to roll it out Stateside this coming August 16th in North America. You can’t find it on any store shelves though, as it is an Amazon.com exclusive. Just what can you expect from this lightweight headset? Read on after the jump for the nitty gritty and juicy details, your ears (and wallet) might just thank you after that.

The X-Tatic SR will come with Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Pro Logic II and Dolby Headphone, where it results in totally new sound dimensions, letting you virtually hear where your enemy is coming from – extremely useful in FPS titles, and while headsets already do that to a certain extent, Sharkoon probably thinks that their offering is better than the rest. Who doesn’t?

Not only that, the X-Tactic SR is slightly different than the rest as it boasts of another connection for you to connect a second headset via a 3.5mm jack, letting a couple of gamers enjoy excellent surround sound simultaneously.

When it comes to comfort for your ears, Sharkoon makes sure the X-Tactic SR does not disappoint with a cushioned headband that are individually adjustable, padded cups and a flexible, detachable microphone. Since it runs off USB power, you need not charge any batteries, nor carry them. How much for this piece of gaming hardware investment? Sharkoon is asking $139.99 for the X-Tactic SR, where a pre-order placed will see you receive a $10 promotional credit toward the purchase of items shipped and sold by Amazon.com.
