thanks for the replies fellas..
ill try to answer as much as possible:
@raband - i do hear and can decide clearly which side the voice is coming from in these tracks, using stereo.
@the - my headphones themselves are stereo, either i cant set this up well or it isnt possible.
@evshrug - it wasnt 8 months ago lol, and as weird as it may sound, in the vid you posted here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=dcB9faNrz_M#!
i hear better when the cmss3d is off (according to the vid).
when it's on, it sounds blury and i cant pinpoint the location, but when its not on, i know exactly where the grenade exploded or the footsteps came from.
usually when i play i turn my mouse with the player facing to the side of the noise, so ill hear exactly where it came from (left or right),
it's kind of a disadvantage, that's why i wanted to upgrade, though it doesnt help much.
overall, i tested it around, and i just cant tell where shots or footsteps come from when it's not on stereo.. maybe it's just me.
it's not that i cant hear well, before my buyings, i used a 5.4$ headset (im not kidding, silverlines headset), and it was all fine and.
i just dont feel like the headphones+ the soundcard i bought contributed to my gaming needs (but i dont regret my purchases, cause the sound card is awesome for music and and flac/wav files in particualr, and the same for the headphones which are great aswell)/
just need to up my game a bit, and to maybe hear footsteps from bigger distances, which didnt do the trick, and as i mentioned before - stereo is good cause i actually feel like a little bump in the right/left side whenever a sound comes from that particular sound WHEN I USE STEREO. not when i use surround - which i cant decide where the hell the sound came from.
not blaming anyone so dont crucify me here :)
