As it turns out though, I now need to download and use Equalizer APO as Creative don't provide one in the driver software GRR.

Sound so far though is superb, got my pc where the Creative card is installed running through a Behringer mixer and then the Beyerdynamic's plugged in to that.

Just need to sort out the sound for PUBG so I can hear footsteps better, hence the need for an Equalizer.


Good choice on headphone, I have the 770's and 990's, Once they've "burned in" the sound really does improve, I tested this with some new 770's and the ones that were used more definitely sounded better.

Or maybe you’ve just gotten used to the other pair and hence liking it more ^_^

I thought that too at the beginning but there are very real differences between a new pair of headphones and ones that have been used, I've tested a pair of 770's that were sealed and in their original box against my older 770's, I bought both at the same time, And the 770's I used for a few months sound more "full" and detailed compared to the unused ones..


It's definitely a thing, There's even services that will hook up your cans to a sound source for a full 7 days to "burn them in" I believe it has something to do with the drivers in the headphone settling into place, I didn't believe it was actually a thing until I experienced it myself.

They sound good, there is no denying that and if they are going to get better over time then excellent.

The bass is just how I like it, not overpowering but deep and punchy.

I got my equalizer sorted for PUBG after installing Equalizer APO and PC Equalizer and it's good on this new setup, but wow had a game and it finished near the water near Mylta Power and I couldn't hear the footsteps of the players over the water.

That's nothing to do with the headphones, that is all down to Bluehole not being able to sought the sound out.

New chair. Pretty basic, but has a plethora of adjustments and has durable materials since it's specced for office use instead of personal use.

Yeah the sound mixing in that game is awful. It takes A LOT of messing around to fix it.

Isnt the sound incredibly inaccurate also? like sound coming from above you when they are coming in from the left side etc.

I spent a fair few hundreds of hours on that game and mostly found the footsteps & engine sounds unrealistically loud, could usually tell what floor someone was on a couple buildings away from the tone of their footsteps, once you know how people sound on every type of material and movement it gets a lot easier, if you just spin on the spot quickly you get a good idea of position, but really the key part is to have good communication with your squad tbh, helps a lot more when you have 2 or 3 people locating sounds. Even when I played on my friends Xbox, cheap earphones plugged into controller, I think the distinct way the sounds change on materials meant it was still pretty useful, I guess once you know how the houses are setup.

Getting a bit fed up with just Linux again, so ordered a SSD for dual booting:

1TB nVME for 115€, though it's QLC so not exactly the performance or longetivity king.

Replacement 10Gbe NIC bought for my home server. After some lengthy research, I decided to try solarflare and picked up a SFN7122F card nice and cheap to replace the DOA Mellanox CX3.
