So /g/, headphone virtualization, yes or no? What exactly does it do?
I have some pretty good headphones (DT 770 Pro) and I'm wondering if this would make sound appear more... authentic and/or hi-fi.
I tries to use DSP to emulate what sound would be like in a room with speakers.
If you want to get into the technical side of how it does this, it basically adds a bit of crosstalk. It's an old technique in the analog HiFi days for various reasons.
It's kind of a cool effect but it adds a feeling of degraded quality. Like you're suddenly using cheaper headphones.
Hmm interesting. Yeah I tried watching some YouTube music videos and switching it on/off. It appears as though headphone virtualization makes things a bit more hollow sounding.
Since we're on the subject of audio, are any of these equalizer presets really worth using? I don't really know how to setup an equalizer to sound good.
no it doesnt. It often times can, and will but on a clean install it does not.
I used to fight with that quite a bit, always unintstalling it everytime it updated it on its own. However, after a clean install, where they were never installed, it hasnt done it.
