Pheobus is great for gaming, but he mentioned movies and music which is an epic disaster with this card in comparison.

Yes but Binaural surround emulation is *leagues* better than any multi-driver-per-ear implementation. "7.1" headphones don't have space to put half decent drivers in and end up being pretty bad, Razer not excluding.

7.1 doesn't really work when the drivers are mere mm apart and only a few cm's away from your ears.

They're an interesting gimick, but if you use a proper binaural setup with better quality headphones, it's a far, far better experience.

Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why
