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

    From a gaming standpoint, it depends on which surround implementation you like better and what games you're playing. I've spent enough time with both that, for me, the GSX 1000 sounds better with software 7.1 mixed games in terms of sheer positional accuracy (something I've never said for any...

    Mad Lust Envy's Headphone Gaming Guide: (1/10/2022: Koss KPH40 Utility Review Added)

    Good to hear that it works! It seemed like nobody else was watching, so I hardly got any feedback about it, chat or otherwise. While Twitch doesn't seem to be giving me the promised 60 FPS I wanted to stream with on my second monitor, if the audio cues are going through, clearly it's working...

    Okay, I admit my plans to stream got considerably delayed for a litany of reasons, not least of which was troubleshooting a little "backwards audio" issue last night, but I think I'm ready to go now - at around 6:30pm Eastern, compared to my original estimate. Don't worry about missing out...

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

    Guess who's back after a very long hiatus. This place wasn't exactly good for my bank account, I had nothing new to write about (let alone rewritten the existing guide outright), Ossic still hasn't delivered what they promised us Kickstarter backers... ...but I wound up being in the very...

    Gaming options, sound car or external DAC

    I actually fed the GSX 1000 into the aux input on my X-Fi Titanium HD so I could record the 7.1 mixed output for anyone to listen to, and that's when the high noise floor suddenly struck me. It's not obvious when using a headset directly, but a sound card with decent line-in will ruthlessly...

    Oh, right, I should've linked that! It's, quite unsurprisingly, https://go.twitch.tv/namelesspfg I probably won't be streaming for several hours yet; 2am here on the US East Coast, I should rest up a bit. I don't know when I'll start, but it'll probably be in the afternoon. 2pm-4pm Eastern...

    All right, I'm done with work for tonight, and the weekend's finally here. Who's down for a Destiny 2 stream soon? I'll set it up so that you all can listen to the Sennheiser GSX 1000's virtual 7.1 mix in action. I may stream other games, but Destiny 2's the main one on my mind since work and...

    Destiny

    Okay, I'm easing myself into this game a bit. Had some issues on launch day since I was getting weird freezes for a second or three every minute or so, and then the Windows 10 Fall Creators' Update dropped the next day. Had to sort out a lot of system-level stuff. Thankfully, the game runs fine...

    LG V30

    Well, these past two posts are interesting. I did note that my Note 8 seemed to sound better out of the gate than my Note 4 (both are their respective US Snapdragon variants), but I obviously don't expect V-series or dedicated DAP quality out of it. (Note that I have yet to actually audition a...

    LG V30

    Speaking of the Qualcomm DAC, I thought back to this little tweak over on XDA-developers and wondered how much better a typical Qualcomm-equipped smartphone (prior to SD820, anyway, won't work on that or later going by recent posts) would sound with it set up...

    Destiny

    To be fair, Destiny 1 never had a PC release, with some very questionable excuses by some of the devs given. It wouldn't have been possible prior to the second game. I didn't have a PS4, either, so I had to play the first game's open beta on PS3. It was playable, but I was yearning for proper...

    LG V30

    No sweat, just know that all-caps is often interpreted as shouting in forum conversation. I like using italic and bold formatting to convey emphasized tones of speech without sounding too loud about it, if the forum or messaging system permits it. At any rate, I'm just glad to see that the...

    LG V30

    Teardown: Hey, I didn't see anything on iFixit regarding the V30 and still don't. Ease up. Hell, I didn't know JerryRigEverything did teardowns in addition to scratch/bend tests until recently, so iFixit was always my go-to source regarding teardowns of new tech (barring the times when they...

    LG V30

    I can't say I'm fond of the V30 dropping the removable battery and IR blaster (things I quite liked on my Note 4 and commended LG for retaining on the V10 and V20), but if this video's any indication, they at least had some foresight about not attaching cables directly to the fingerprint scanner...

    Destiny

    Well, I did something I don't usually do for new AAA games these days: pre-ordered Destiny 2 with a modest discount, just because I have a few friends who were really into the first game and are also going into the second, thus guaranteeing some good co-op in the times to come. I probably...
