Surround Sound Questions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I was wondering does surround sound give you an advantage while gaming( I Mainly play csgo) and is there a difference between virtual and actual surround in terms of sound and is the difference between 5.1 vs 7.1 surround significant?

Thanks for your help

no. it is terrible

you can get better positional audio from a good pair of headphones.

hence why only "gaming" companies use surround sound in headphones.

Why is it terrible? Isn't it just more speakers in different angles?

it is two speakers with surround enabled by software...

trust me you get better audio quality and positional audio from proper headphones..

Have you ever listened to a good 5.1 setup?

7.1 is just making the sweet spot bigger.

If you are sitting in the sweet spot there is no difference between 4.1 and 7.1

Well, unless you are talking about real speakers.
