Quick, somewhat off topic question regarding headest:
Ok, so, this is AVSforum. Most of us here, are pretty serious about our audio. Many of us have somewhat expensive 7.1 audio setups, or maybe even beyond that. Multiple subwoofers, etc, etc.
Now, I totally understand that when the wife and kids are sleeping, it might not be a good idea to "bump that bass", but other than that, I think it makes sense to take adavantage of all the $$$ we have thrown into our audio systems, while gaming. Yet it seems many people are perfectly happy wearing these various headsets that cover both ears, and basically not using their actual audio equipment.
For me, I'd rather just use the type of mono headset, that is basically for chat only, while still hearing all the audio swirling all around me via my 7.2 audio setup. You know, like the headset that used to come with the Xbox 360. Just covering one ear, with a little mic, and all of that basically only being for chat purposes.
Am I off on my own little island with this one ?
