Someone said you hear better and more details. I'm playing right now BC2 soon...BF3. I never talk to other players, I'm pretty much just talking about sounds from the game not others players.

Yes.
Audio can always make a game that much better.

Yes. It doesn't have to be a headset though... good headphones are fine as well..
light years in difference from using regular speakers or even surround sound (unless you have the volume deafening)

If you are getting BF3 then, yes a headset makes a universe of difference. BF3 is amazing with a surround sound headset.

Well this isn't true at all.

If it's all about the volume, then you're doing it wrong. Yes, loud is fun, but dynamics is what makes the 5.1 and 7.1 set ups of the world worth their respective weight in gold. You simply cannot recreate that with headphones.

If you're getting a headset for BF than you are in luck because that game has an amazing soundscape. It doesn't really matter about talking to teammates because 90% of the people on live are simply not worth talking to to begin with.

The big benefit for you is being able to tell which direction sounds come from.

I'm confused. I you saying comparing headphones to headset in the sense of it being a gaming headset that does sound processing? Because even if it's a gaming headset, that doesn't mean it's doing sound processing.

Or are you saying that you can't get the same experience with headphones/headset as you can with speakers?

This is what I'm saying.

I think headphones are great, but they just will never best a discreet system.

I disagree. I have a great 7.1 system, and for movies I'll take that over the headphones. But for games, the headphones are more immersive, and the directions of the surround sound feel more natural when playing a game. Dolby Headphone Technology is really that good.
