Can I have some advice on how to listen to music?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought my PC parts in Black Friday sales 2015, and as part of a discount because I spent so much I got £30 Corsair VOID RGB Wireless Headphones. They are wonderful, but I am not sure what settings to use for listening to music. In the Corsair software, there are a bunch of audio prefigurations (Pure Direct, Bass Boost, Movie Theater, Clear Chat, FPS Competition), as well as the option of Dolby Surround. Obviously I want my music to sound as good as possible. 2 questions:

 

1. Should I keep the audio setting on Pure Direct, which I have it on at the moment?

2. Should I turn on/off Dolby Surround for best music quality?

 

Thanks for any help.

It's all about what you think sounds the best.

Obviously, but currently I only have access to a single MP3 because I just reinstalled Windows, and cannot tell the difference between them - I want to make sure I have it set up right for when I get my FLAC songs back downloaded off of pledge music when my internet speeds up, as I will likely forget then. Should have made it clearer sorry.

You're using the wrong headphones if you care about fidelity. Just do what sounds good. If you can't hear a difference, the difference doesn't matter.
