Virtual surround (binaural simulation) is based on HRTF
calculations, while the Kave is based on how plain 5.1 surround speaker setups work (which is a bit stupid on headphones).
And let me guess, you haven't even tried the SBX surround with the A40
And I wonder how the hell did the sound improve even in the slightest when you are using USB/optical
hehe Tiihokatti, ppl you should try to read carefullier before being so agressive
and i could also explain things better.
I said "I got the ZxR sound card and phones."
I would say ZxR sound card and Evo ZxR Headset
With this Evo ZxR Headset i can get virtual 7.1 surround sound trough usb or connect them trough the 3.5/6.3mm jack.
So, based on this, and saying that i got much better sound quality on both situations then using astro a40 via digital or kave via analogue 5.1, which would be the best way to get the best sound positioning while gaming with them?
For me Creative EVO ZxR(usb or 3.5mm) > Astro A40 (digital) > Roccat Kave 5.1 (3.5mm) in all situations using the Creative Sound Blaster ZxR sound card.
djinferno806, i have read the guide you send me a few days ago, and comparing prices of those good phones mentioned there and seing this ones from creative, i decided to give them a try and i'm very very surprised with the sound quality, ingame, movies, music etc.
no doubts better then astro a40 (digital), and it has some nice extra features.
I'm very pleased with them.
I belive that some phones like AKG K701 could be better, can't confirm without comparing them, but this Evo ZxR have really good sound and are so comfortable
I will continue testing them via usb/jack seing if i can conclude in which situation i get better sound positioning.
thanks for trying to help guys
