The Nameless Guide To PC Gaming Audio (with binaural headphone surround sound) - Page 152

It depends entirely on personal preference. Try it and decide for yourself. smily_headphones1.gif

The cross-section of cs players and audiophiles is a finicky bunch. While it's far more important to use good tactics and have good shot placement, that can be easy to forget when trying to squeeze out a competitive edge with epeen hardware. What most players are going for is the ability to accurately place footsteps. How much effort required for this is entirely up to that individual.

Just a heads-up for everyone: you've got seven-and-a-half hours to snag Battlefield 2 for $5 off Steam before the Community's Choice poll rotates!

So............everybody....... is Santa bringing anything sound related to put under your tree this Christmas (or 'Holidays' lol)?

post #2269 of 3095
I don't know, haven't opened anything yet!
...
Then again, if the combo of me and the postman counts as an elf and Santa, then I'll be getting a nice Sound Blaster Omni package. I can put it under the tree for a second, symbolically wink.gif

Also, I bought Turtle Beach DSS's for two of my gaming friends to introduce them to headphone surround, a pair of Koss headphones for my gaming clan's Co-Leader/Founder (he's also one of the peeps getting a DSS), and I helped a coworker last night pick out a pair of Sennheiser HD558 to gift his Dad.

Apple is giving everyone a free Xmas music playlist in iTunes, and their "12 days" app will give everyone gifts starting the 26th.

Rocket Santa -- easily edges out Borderlands 2 for THE best binaural gaming audio known to humanity. I stand by this.. oh yeah.

post #2275 of 3095
What are you talking about, you can get binaural with just stereo headphones and any game!!! Duh!! Better than virtual surround.

I could probably spare it. Got like... 5 virtual surround processors of different types? Tho the DSS is going to my clan guy. And the SB Z is probably going to be returned.

Given that this Christmas is going to be really thin for us, I doubt it. I'd be lucky to get anything over $100 under the tree this year.

 

Then again, I do consider this MMX 300 to be a sort of early gift to myself. Not that I need more headphones, but it's nice to have a headset that doesn't suck for once,  alongside finally getting to audition a Beyerdynamic set.
