Lol, yeah. Like we're going to become enlightened by his blatant dislike for Dolby Headphone. We've pretty much have been saying how much we LOVE DH for gaming, and yet it's like he's trying to school us on how bad he thinks it is. WTF. If he doesn't like it fine, but DAMN.... it's like...
I do not dislike Dolby Headphone unconditionally. I do not like DH on top of something already processed for headphone output. I say blind because Dolby Headphone does not know the locations of each sound in the game environment I do like it for 5.1->headphone output, but I like the in-game headphone output better.
I did not realize the recommendations were for consoles. Many console games output in 5.1 but do not offer specific headphone options. In this scenario DH works well because it downmixes 5.1 into stereo while preserving directional cues and a sense of space from the surrounding room.
I will re-evaluate 5.1->DH vs in-game headphone options and post about my experiences hunting bloodsuckers, as well as in Bad Company 2 and other games. If DH works better with some headphones than others, it's probably because the more synergistic headphone has more linear frequency response in the range which humans use for directional cues. This will take quite some time since I intend to try each mode out for a while and there will be a lot of combinations to go through.
