    I think I was wrong about this actually. Even after selecting 7.1 headphones in the creative driver, you have to manually enable sbx surround in the driver also. So there is one more step. And apparently selecting 7.1 headphones automatically sets windows to 7.1, so that step was redundant. Someone with experience with creative drivers can confirm?

    Yep the creative suite software automatically changes the Windows speaker setup. SBX Pro has to be turned on separately and you have to set the speakers to 5.1/7.1 full range and then when you flick to headphones you get the surround sound processing. It is usually best setting SBX to either 33% or 66% (start at 33%).

    I say 100% surround, personally. Unlike Dolby Headphone and GSX, SBX 100% surround doesn't have a heavy reverb like the other DSPs. The higher, the better rear audio cues.

    Just check your ability to determine the difference between front and rear. This is one area where Creative sometimes has an issue at the higher percentages with a lot of people.

    I'm still evaluating the best SBX setting for my ears and setup. So far I'm up to 55%, the perceived downside for me when going 100% is that I seem to have a harder time differentiate the location of the different sounds. But again I'm still evaluating and I still have some hours to go to fully burn in my Fidelio X2HR which just keeps impressing me every time I use them.

    The more I use SBX the more I appreciate VSS without reverb and hollow effect.

    Look what Santa brought me today! Keep in mind, this is for reviewing purposes. I did not buy these, so I dunno when those who purchased it will get it.

    Per Sankar. THIS IS THE FINALIZED VERSION. Take that as you will, but I say that all the worrying should be coming to an end for you guys. Mind you, the box is plain white and I'm sure that will change for those who buy it. The papers and all look 100% legit.

    I have things to do today *cough*Destiny 2 reset "Solstice of Heroes", which I'll be using to put the Mobius through its paces. Don't expect day to day impressions, as all of that will go into my full review update.

    I haven't checked what's going on in this thread, but if there are any ISSUES, I'll talk about them. Apparently some low noise issues? I dunno. We'll see.
