    Default Sound Whoring?

    Not sure where to post this (sorry). I love to use Dead Silence in MW3 and rely on sound (at time) to get kills and to acquire enemy position.

    I just picked up a TurtleBeach XP400 and would love to hear people's opinion/advice on what Surround Sound Angle would be best to use for "Sound whoring".

    I have attached the 6 different presents and any tips, advice, etc would be awesome. Sorry guys, I am a noob!

    I don't like how people call it "Sound Whoring" since when is it a negative thing to use your ears?


    To answer your question Its really all a personal preference. Just play a bunch of games on each setting and see which you feel most comfortable with. I don't use Beaches so I don't personally know how they sound on certain settings, but I use Tritions and Astros, so I know how important sound is :P

    It's just people getting mad because they don't have anyone of those headsets and they get killed because someone heard them coming a mile away.

    They need to stop crying and save up to buy one.

    I agree guys. I don't considering "sound whoring" either, but lots do unfortunately because they audio setup sucks.

    I had a game there other day (not sure what angle I was using) where I was playing TDM on Dome, score was 7400 7400. I was near the loading dock headed towards the tank, I QUICKLY turned around because I heard footsteps behind me and got the game winning kill.

    The killcam was AWESOME. You see me running (with dead silence) and making an insanely fast 180 turn and shooting my enemy for the game winning kill. HE WAS PISSED. All I heard in the lobby was "how the f%#k did he know I was coming from behind". I couldn't help but LOL.

    I would just leave the angles on default, they usually will pick a good one to be default, not sure how the 400's work, but my ear force deltas have presets also, and one thing to be careful of, some of the presets are only a stereo sound, not surround.... So make sure to choose a preset that is surround sound.

    When my surround headset loses it's configuration (it happens rarely when switching from one console to another), I set up private match for example on Scrapyard MW2, then go near a sound emitting source, for example a power generator, stand in front of it and spin around slowly while adjusting my headset levels. I stop adjusting when that sound has exactly the same power from all directions while spinning.

    Sometimes I use decoy grenades in Black Ops to adjust this setting. It also works.

    I also turn off the bass completely - it helps a lot.

    This is the only way of achieving a true surround sound on my 5.1 headset. You have to keep in mind that in order to get the best of your headset in MW3, you will have to use SitRep Pro and the Specialist with Dead Silence as your first perk. When I use this setup, only people with Dead Silence and Stalker can sneak up behind me.

    I'd say go with 1, back when i used to buy alot of high end headphones i ran into some with surround sound and i found it crap compared to simple 2.0(left and right) quality>quantity the surround sound felt too fake/program generated.
    I don't know if this helps or if you would even understand what i mean lol but this was back in CS and sound whoring was MUCH more important then it is in cod because 1step,1sound, any sound you make the enemies will know exactly where you are. So it was simple make a noise you die lol.

    I'm gonna have to play around with my Trittons. I've basically used the default setting since day 1, might have to see what they are capable of.

    i would recommend getting a buddy to help you by going into a private match and him popping off a shot around you. See if you can guess where he his before turning to him. From there you can adjust accordingly.
