Delay has nothing to do with the surround feature working correctly,
Delay won't help you judge distance at all unless it is something in your VISUAL sight. [/b]
..So much fail.
Being angry and passionate doesn't prove your point either. That's really sad if you've spent your entire life working with audio, and you still can't understand how surround works. Speakers are meant to be heard together, and at a distance. Cramming them next to each other doesn't work. That's why old stereo recordings (e.g. Beatles) sound horrible on headphones.
If "real" headphone surround worked, all competitive FPS players would use them. AFAIK, none of them do. Go to an "MLG" or "e-sports" event and you'll see Sennheisers or (if they're sponsoring) Astro and Creatives. The fact is, many people here have tried these "real" headsets (including myself), and we know they're horrible compared to decent stereo positioning. It only takes one driver to induce delay and mimick direction from right or left. It can be more difficult to simulator direct front or back. but splitting that one driver into 3 smaller lower quality ones does not help.
It's funny that you bash the Psyko headset, since it's easily the best of "real" surround headsets, which of course isn't saying much.
But yeah, good bye.
Was that not passionate enough?
THE WORLD TODAY.. WOW
