This is why "audiophiles" change source equipment oe headphones/speakers (as opposed to the file itself) because it can change the way audio sounds, but without actually changing the data (and potentially decreasing quality).
Well i find some of my music is it sounds better on my 2.1 system but not on my headphones. But my Headphones can make a blast go off on a game quite nice and feels like im into the game, but its the other speakers that let it down.

I do put everything to Default and the music just sounds dull to be honest. The high notes arent even there so they go up and i turn the X-FI Crystalizer to 'Max' and i notice a improvement straight away. But as i say, music is fine because im only interested in music playing out on 2 speakers (Entertainment Mode)

But for 5.1 Gaming Mode i want more...

I just recently got a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatality and have spent the last several weeks toying around with options to tune it to what sounds the best for me. I play a lot of FPS games--BF:Bad Company 2, L4D, TF2, Black Ops--so I'm trying to find the truest and best positional audio settings available to me.

Thus far, my config is the following:
Razer Carcharias headphones plugged into front panel.
5.1 Logitech system connected to the rear panel.

Windows sound config: 5.1 setup, sampling at 96khz
Creative console speaker config: Headphones

CMSS 3D: OFF--When enabled it makes my music and movies sound very tiny and dull. Also, in games, for me, CMSS 3D did not improve my directional sound or improve any other distinguishable qualities of gaming sounds. If enabled, it would drown out music and movie audio quality, what was it doing to my game sounds?

Crystalizer: OFF
Equalizer: OFF
SVM: OFF

All game audio settings: 5.1

-----

These are just some of the settings I've been toying with.
