I've been playing MW2 now since the new year and am enjoying it immensely. A big part of the fun is the podcasts, youtube vids, forums etc, etc. I'm up to lvl70 but not ready to prestige yet as I want to get the best out of the unlocks I have already and, to be honest, I'm still pretty inconsistent. Got my first 23-0 flawless on MTDM the other day though so that was nice ;-)
Anyway, just had a delivery of the PX21 headset from Turtle Beach and the stereo sound is simply astonishing. So much so that it's almost like I have to learn to play the game again! I'm finding that I'm almost overloaded with sounds now and it's having an impact on my game play.
Anyone else suffer from this "re-adjustment" when using headsets for the first time? Another thing I'm struggling to work with is the stereo expander function - increases the long-range noises and decreases the middle sound noises. I'm yet to decide whether it's better switched on or off......anyone advise their set up?

i know what you mean, i used to have the older p21's and they were pretty good. i thought they were the best thing going, but how wrong i was
im currently using the astro a40 audio system and its not stereo, its 5.1 surround sound.
if you have the cash seriously give it a go. its the best thing i've ever tried

Cheers chaps, I'm thinking that I play better with the expander on so thanks for that, I'll stick with it.
Couldn't afford the full 5.1 surround sound to be honest, not yet anyway, so plumped for the next best thing, as far as I could make out from my research anyway.
Don't get me wrong - the sound detail and stereo effect has a massive impact and is simply superb - it's this difference that has thrown me "off my stride" so to speak, lol, it's almost too good!
I'll just have to play more to get better :-)

I was going to get those as well, but they are not available in this country yet.
So as impatient as i am i opted for the P21's and i have to say Search & Destroy is now a totally different game lol.
By the way, if you think they are good on MW2 then get yourself a copy of BFBC2 and listen to the sound difference. I kid you not sometimes on MW2 the sound gets distorted and breaks up but on BFBC2 the sound is outstanding and it really does feel like you're in a war. Don't forget to change the audio settings to war tapes on BFBC2 and prepare to have your head blown off, lol!
