I'm LOOOOOOVING my DT990/600 gaming. Impressive bass, exceptional clarity, large soundstage, and good positional cues. Of course, this is all with Dolby Headphone. I don't play in stereo, as I have already mentioned.

Congratulations!!!!

I totally agree! I have the turtle beach DSS and my first impression was.. meh! (my computer onboard audio supposedly supports  Dolby Digital Live and I couldn't get games or movies to sound right with it) PS3 was another story... after putting CoDMWF and turning the thing on!! it's hard to describe... the sound it's not coming like from back or front, surround left or right... but I could say really easily where it was coming from, I could hear the bullets zipping and pinpoint enemies by sound, the sound had space and that I loved! smily_headphones1.gif

 

IMHO the DSS it's not that good with movies. as I couldn't get the same immersion level as in games, in games it really shines! pairing it with the DT 770 pro 80 gave me excellent results!

Since this is the gaming headphone thread.  What do people find with their setups and black ops?  

 

Am I the only one that absolutely cannot hear footsteps at all in this game.  I swear I can barely hear my own characters footsteps in the game even without the ninja perk.  It's highly annoying getting knifed and see the killcam where the guy is running behind you for about 30 seconds swiping and missing constantly and you didn't hear a thing....

Treyarch is releasing a patch to fix the footsteps.  Even without ninja, they are almost inaudible.  Black ops blows though very_evil_smiley.gif

Yeah it's not just you. The sound overall in BO is just horrific in my opinion. Hopefully they really are patching it... Otherwise what's the point of Ninja Pro?

I am absolutely in love with black ops! I love the sound in its quiet realism. However, I am having difficulty with the virtual 3D CMSS. Anyone else experiencing these anomalies?

IT seems as the problem is with this particular game audio. I have read lots of complaints

I agree sound whoring in this game is an issue.

Ninja perk is useless in this game, even with the pro add on.

Treyarch are releasing a patch to fix the footsteps. This is confirmed.

However a date is not?

Sound overall in black ops is not too bad. The sounds of the guns sound more real. But the sounds on the map such as launch, is terrible, You can hear absolutely nothing when a rocket is launching, not to mention the fact that the ground shakes I know this is to make the game more life like and effects. But the sounds in the map over power other things way too much.

I have no problem with the mix amp, but that's not 3d cmss.
