    It is among the worst CoD games for hearing footsteps after the footstep sound distance nerf.

    I’m glad to hear this. I’ve never really like the reverb with DH and I have a G6 being delivered that is my first SBX device. Most of what I play at this point is single player and I just wanted a VSS solution that works with just about everything. I’m pretty excited to try it out.

    Sorry I don't have another to compare it to. This is my first hardware VSS since the original Mixamp on Xbox 360. Only other thing I've tried is the software Dolby Atmos and Sonic but they were terrible. I'm going to chalk it up to it being the games sound mix.

    Maybe not all that surprising, considering they do not share the same DAC and may not have the same processing power.

    In this review the guy talks about G6 and X7...

    I ended up formating and installing a fresh Windows.

    It's doing good so far, I have a hunch that the G6 dislikes my FiiO X3 drivers, as if they fight for the same adresses or something, it is the only thing different from my previous configuration. I'll keep an eye on it.

    The software is messy and convoluted. The polar opposite of the ease of use of the GSX1000

    Interesting. I'll try it again tomorrow with those exact settings but not sure why I can't hear them with everything I tried.

    I have seen some videos comparing gsx and g6 surround

    While i heard the comparsion through stereo

    I found minimal difference

    I am not sure if this is what i should expect or the sound quality of the video makes a difference

    Any idea?!

    Plus if i to choose between a sound card vs an open back like "game one headset " which one will benifit me more regarding better surround?

    I don't have the switch directly connected to the X7. I use ny TV's optical out. The switch doesn't do surround from what I see, so turn off SBX when using it.

    My tv passes Dolby Digital for the X7 to decode.

    I may be repeating myself for no reason, BUT MAKE SURE TO SET THE G6 SURROUND TO MAX in the PC software before using it.

    I haven't played WWII either than the campaign, but CoD have deemphasized hearing footsteps. It may be game related and nothing your devices can do about it.

    There are many fps games that have bad footstep audio if any.

    so i got my GSX1200 today (got it 1€ cheaper than the GSX1000) but i have some problems with it.
    First i had it plugged in a USB 3.0 port and tried to set it up but i couldn´t change volume or any settings on the GSX1200.
    So i thought to myself i will just try it with a USB 2.0 port and it worked, i could controll volume without a problem and the other settings seemed to do what they have to do.
    Now for the quick setup in windows, so i go into my playback devies, choose the GSX 1200 Pro Main Audio and click configure.
    Here i choose 7.1 Surround and press Test and get the Error Message "failed to play test tone".
    If i just go ahead and finish the setup i have no more sound until i go back to Stereo.

    TL;DR : When i try to set my GSX1200 to 7.1 Surround in Windows i get the Error "failed to play test tone"

    Anyone got a fix for this?

    Thanks for the reply MLE.

    I have my Switch hooked to my monitor right now, and it's directly next to my X7. I've just been plugging in headphones into the switch. I ran and HDMI cable through the walls to the TV in the living room, so it's hooked up to that as well if I want to play from the couch, but the TV is not hooked to the X7 since the only time I use the X7 is when I'm at my desk (which is most of the time). Is there any other way to pair the two without passing through a TV? My monitor obviously doesn't have optical out.
