Steelseries 5HV2 Surround Sound?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I was looking to upgrade my current headphones (Steelseries 5HV2) to a surround sound one but realized this one too supports surround sound. How do you "activate" the surround sound for games? I've never noticed surround sound while playing games with this headset.

That means you have the USB version.
This is all done in the driver software, on your computer.
So if you are running a supported operating system, install the drivers and accompanying "7.1 virtual surround sound" program.

And of course, the game would need to support surround sound or there will be 0 difference.
In my opinion it's completely useless and only causes further distortion.
