Hey everyone, Quick question I am in the middle of purchasing a standard stereo headset from plantronics for light gaming and ventrillo. I hear there is a usb adapter that makes turns stereo into a simulated 5.1 digital experience. I wanted to know if any of you guys and gals can chime in on this product. 1 have you heard of such a thing and 2 are they as advertised (if you have any expirience with it). I seen some on amazon that claim to work, but I want input form the proffesionals xD. If you can, post a link on the products that you feel are the best for what im looking for. Thanks for the help wonderful people at Tom's Hardware.
That little blue adapter? Naaaa...wouldn't even bother trying it.
I would buy that if my audio jacks are broken...
If you want simulated 5.1 surround with headsets, try the Xonar DG (google it to find stores that sell it). It's a sound card that support dolby headphone, and dolby headphone is a simulated 5.1 surround. Here's a video showing it's ability to process the sound into virtual surround: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkVSgxvDvcM
