Using headphones makes the game more enjoyable?

I have small children so when I put on my headphones I can crank it up loud and hear more sounds with no background noise

Pretty much just immersion. Being able to listen to things as loudly as you want without others hearing it is always nice too.

bought a surround sound headset a few years ago to keep from bothering my girlfriend while she slept; we worked different hours. I have to say I have a hard time playing games without them anymore. Having a kickass sound system either in your room or on your ears can really make a big difference. I went back and even replayed many games just to hear them.

I have Astros and I just finished playing the Dead Space 3 demo, it made the demo a lot more scary than it should have been for me. You have your standard affair of enemies popping out behind some scarcely placed ammo boxes .. plus the sound engineering is top notch .. you notice a lot of things you wouldn't notice listening through small TV speakers.

With a good set of headphones you'll hear stuff you won't hear through the TV speakers.

I love my setup.

Mixamp Pro

Two amps, one for chat and one for the game music. You can't touch this sound setup with anything else. Very clean, very loud (or quiet).

Headphones deliver closer sound and makes it more personal.
Old School Games FTW!

I lik being able to tell what direction sounds are coming from. Helps with immersion and with tactics.

Wearing headphones is like a bonus to both theme and gameplay.
