  • 5.1 Headset

    Hey everyone, im looking at a 5.1 headset for BF2 use. It hooks up with USB or 3 connectors. So my question is, would i need a sound card to use the 5.1 EAX in BF2. Right now i have a P4n Diamond SLI motherboard i am using for sound (onboard). So would there be a big difference or do i have to need one for me headset? Thanks in advance. -HAYES

        I love mine. With the Sound blaster XFI card it's great.

            Yeah i already know which pair i want, but what about the sound card, do i need one? If so, are fancier ones worth it?

              If you get a USB headset, the soundcard is not used. If you want to use EAX, you'll need a SoundBlaster card.

                I've been using a zalman surround-sound headset for a while. Just got an X-Fi Platinum card to replace el cheapo Muse card I used to have and the difference is stark. If you're using onboard sound, you'll get much better sound and FPS with the new card. I went with the platinum for the front-loading convenience. Because the front just has a headphone jack whereas the rear has the full surround sound setup, I actually use the headphone jack for my speakers and the speaker jacks in the rear for my headset. Does that make sense? Of course not: it's a game rig.

                  So, if i use USB, will it not be surround sound inside the game? And i have a very old sound blaster card, will that work?

                      i'd take a solid 2-speaker set of cans over a '5.1' headset anyday- it's a gimmick.

                        The only set that I've heard are made by a company called Medusa, and that's exactly what it was: a gimmick. They sounded like crap.
