Hey I need some advice. I've tried to switch over from a 5.1 gaming headset (Turtle Beach HPA's) to DH with quality headphones. I love the quality of sound but I am having problems with directional sound positioning where I just seem to be more than slightly off than ballpark with positioning ( I Don't expect exact) but people run out on me me alllllll the time and aren't even using DeadSilence (CODMW3). I watch killcams and I'm like wow I didn't hear him? I go back to my 5.1 headset and i'm dropping MOABS. I've had a run with the ad700s, Sennheiser 595, and TurtleBeach X11's. Is DH not for me? I've played exclusively with it for more than a month now.
What I have Fiio E17, Sennheiser 595s, TurtleBeach X11's,TB DSS mixamp, HPA2, Tritton 5.1 Pro Decoder. I have more sense of positioning with X11's and can competitively compete more while playing with them than with my 595s or from what I remember with my ad700's which I sold after giving up on DH once before. I also can pinpoint people more accurately with my Tritton 5.1 Decoder receiving Stereo in Dolby Pro Logic mode with ANY HEADPHONES than a DSS + 595s.
Any advice would be appreciated because somethings off and I rate (competitively) my 5.1 hpa2s a 10, X11's with DSS a 8.5, Dolby Prologic Stereo a 9, and 595/ad700 would be a 7. FOR ME competetitively. e17 has bass/treble/gain settings what would i set those to for best soundwhoring????
I've also gamed with the e17 and just dss alone with same results. Has anyone heard of someone like me or have suggestions. I free4all a lot and I can decently soundwhore with all the options but let me join a TD match and Its just too much audio going off for me to hear footsteps 10 feet in front of me.
