In this episode we give you a look at the Astro Mixamp 5.8, the company's new accessory that allows up to four users to enjoy wireless 7.1 surround sound from their gaming console or PC.

This means that even late at night, you can mute your surround sound system and just have all the sound sent to the headphones - and it'll even do both game sounds as well as chat. Nice stuff!
