    Do you use CMSS-3d or Dolby headphone for gaming?

    I'm bumping this to prove a point on OCN to be honest.

    Creative Sound Blaster new series Z, Zx & ZxR

    Has anyone done a good review on the Sound Blaster Z? How does the sound quality compare to the Xonar DX?   Quote: This is why Bohemia interactive claims that they dropped Open Al for future games like Arma 3.   Blame Creative and their awful support.

    Looking for some open headphones under/around 100$

    A good open can for under $100, I doubt that you'll find one.    That 558 is probably your best bet. Most people complain about the price since they're normally over $150 and you can buy a 598 for not much more than that if you keep your eyes open. I doubt that you'll be disappointed for...

    The Deals Thread (CLOSED! See the last post for the link to the new thread)

    The CAL is $60 on Amazon. I'm debating picking one up just to try out a halfway decent closed can.

    I've never had the chance to test out a good pair of closed headphones. What should I try? I really love my DT990 so I'm pretty tempted by the DT770 but I'm also considering the ultrasone pro 750.   I'm honestly thinking of just giving the CAL a shot.

    what are your top 5 RPGs?

    I've probably dumped the most time into Fallout 3. I really love that game. Vampire the Mascurade Bloodlines would have to be on the list.  I'm still looking for a game to match Final Fantasy Tactics. That game was amazing. I played through FF7 more times than I care to mention. I also...

    Quote: I just picked up a DT990 pro 250 and I really prefer it to my HD598. I really think that the soundstage on the two is very similar. I also love the bass on the DT990. Thats the main reason that I wanted to try it out and its a nice step up in that area. I also don't find the bass...

    ++ FULL-SIZE HEADPHONE RECOMMENDATIONS THREAD++ CLOSED: Please post a thread in the Introductions, Help and Advice forum

    I would really love a pair of headphones with a little more presence in the low end. I'm currently using an HD598 off of a Xonar STX. I like open cans but have never really used a good pair of closed headphones. I'm really thinking about the DT770. I really wish that I jumped on that Ultrasone...

    The Xonar Essence STX Q/A, tweaking, impressions thread

    I've been playing around with my STX for a couple of days now and it sounds great but to be honest with my HD598 its a bit too neutral for my tastes. I'm thinking of swapping out the op-amps. Is there anything that I should look into for a little more bass? I'm considering some LME49860s.

    How does the mixamp 5.8 hold up against something like the xonar dx? I have to be honest that the wireless aspect seems nice but it worries me a bit. Does it have any impact on sound quality?

    ASUS Xonar Phoebus announced.

    I think that you missed my point. I paid what the Xonar DX goes for now almost four years ago. I don't think that this is going to drive down prices on the rest of the line up. You did read the post that I was responding to, right? Quote:

    Replacement pads for the DT990?

    I know that you can buy the exact replacements for the DT990 but I'm a cheapskate. Is there any difference between the stock pads and the ones for the DT250 that a lot of people have been using for the Htf-600?

    Now if you had to choose between the DT990 and Q701 what would it be? I'm really thinking about picking up a DT990 one of these days.    Quote:

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

    What does the graphics api have to do with the amount of horsepower that the game requires? Some of the most gpu intensive games that I've played are DX9 based, the witcher 2 is a recent example.   Quote:   Not sure why, you could max out skyrim at 1080p with a 5770.  Quote:

    Creative's Recon 3d, Sound core3d, any one try one out?

    Well, Creative's new sound core3d has been out for a couple of months now and there is very little info out about it. Based on what I've heard it doesn't appear to support any sort of hardware acceleration. What I have been wondering is what features have been added and what is missing from...

    I just picked up a xonar dx to play around with myself and was wondering the same thing. I would love to know exactly what the sound channels do. The control panel seems to recommend using 8 for gaming, I don't know why. I have windows set to 7.1 with the control panel set to headphones and the...

    Samson SR850 (Superlux OEM) Review: A $50 Budget Champion.

    Yeah, I was playing around with these cans a bit today. I noticed that my HD598 actually has more sub-bass than the SR850. That kind of surprised me considering that these are supposed to be bassy cans. Sadly its just that boomy mid-bass.

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

    Have you tried Thx tru-studio on your Titanium HD. Its really not bad. The positional audio may not be as good as cmss3d for the most part but the hit in audio quality is hardly noticeable. There is a good chance that if you leave it on and listen to some music that you aren't going to notice...

    Do you use CMSS-3d or Dolby headphone for gaming?

    I notice that when I set windows to 5.1 I hear some serious distortion on the bass notes. I think thats also what I was hearing with thx tru-studio. If I go into where you can actually select 5.1 in windows and hit the subwoofer icon to test it out I hear the same crackle that I hear in game...

    What do you think would be the cheapest way for me to try Dolby Headphone without a free pci slot? Should I wait for a deal for a Xonar DX?
