The Nameless Guide To PC Gaming Audio (with binaural headphone surround sound) - Page 205

post #3061 of 3067

Just picked up an Asus U3 and have it going into my bifrost via toslink.  I'm trying to play CS:GO with dolby headphone and it sounds HORRIBLE.  It's like I'm running around in a vacuum.  Windows and the game are set to 5.1 and asus software is set to dolby headphone.  Anything I can do to fix it?  Otherwise I'm just going to return this thing because it doesn't work for the game whatsoever.

Is the U3's Audio Channel set to 6-Channel

Sample rate set to 44.1K or 48K?

S/PDIF Output set to PCM?

 

Have you tried doing a fresh install of the U3 drivers?

 

It should not really make a difference, but have you disable the motherboard's on-board audio? in the BIOS.

Are the soundblaster cards better than the asus stx card for gaming?  I started reading the thread from the back as I am looking for the most up to date information and it seems like people are only talking about soundblaster cards.  Even if it is better, I probably won't change as I would lose too much money selling a used card here or on ebay.  I'm just curious to know what is currently the best.

No, it is mostly due to your preference only. Some people prefer SBX, while others prefer Dolby Headphone.

I'm assuming you already have the Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card?

Did you disable the motherboard's on-board audio? in the BIOS, when you installed the STX.

 

Most people who own the STX seem to find it decent enough for gaming.

Hey there everyone,

 

This is my first time posting in this thread. I still have alot to learn about audio but Im trying my best to understand it.

 

My question for now is....best settings to be used in BF4? 

 

Im currently using a Recon3D USB since I also use it for my PS3 and later with the PS4, so it made sense that i purchased the Recon for multipurpose reasons.

I am also using Phillips Fidelios X1 headphones for gaming along with a v moda mic.

 

Now I have installed everything and have been running it for the past 6 or 7 months and it sounds good, but I feel or hear like I am missing something....?

 

Ive read that some use Hi Fi with surround, some with Hi FI and stereo, Headphone with surround (which i use and sounds good to me) but Im hoping someone else that knows about Creative Labs Recon3D, can tell me whats beneficial in its control panel and whats not? Im also confused with the dolby digital dynamic something lol I forgot what its really called, which is set to normal for now.

 

So many questions that I need answered.

Id very much appreciate your help guys, Thanks

 

ohh and also, ive read  that you can go into one of the games folders and set it up properly for surround sound?

 

 

 

 

edit: Any help please? :(
