5.1 for regular gaming and headphones(sennheiser pc 360) in case of vent/skype
headphones is better
Right now i play with PC speakers but i'm thinking about changing to headphones.
Been using headphones for 4 years now, I can hear better and the neighbors and family won´t be disturbed, I also use a mic in multiplayer games when needed. And I do not use my speakers anymore, they´re too old now
I use a Sherwood R-925RDS hooked up to a pair of Eltax Monitor III's.
Speakers always will annoy someone. Whether its the other people in your house, or people online hearing echo through your mic. Obviously, there are ways around those things, but it seems most people don't bother.
Headphones with attached mic FTW
ARGON 7460A speakers with a SUB10 woofer.
5.1 systems feel overrated, the quality isn't nearly as good as with proper speakers.
i selected headphones, but i actually game with a headset... that way i can whine and complain about crap with my voice instead of typing it all out.
isnt an expensive pair of headphones better than surround sound? I mean like those three digit ones with noise cancelling capabilities and crap
5.1 speakers is good! xD Great sound when you play call of duty etc. xD
I use Logitech 5.1 X-530 for my PC and PS3.
Headphones, Simply because its an easy solution for surround sound games.
When I'm home playing without anyone else around, I use speakers, but if someone else is in the room, other than my brother or friends, I use headphones.
I'm going with 2.1, even though I have 5.1, but don't know where to put the rest 3 speakers, because the room layout sucks. That's why I have Siberia V2 headset to get myself into games more, sound-wise that is.
