Title says it all.


Long Story: I recently bought a Sennheiser PC 363D, because I wanted a good headset with a mic for gaming. After much debate I went with these, I got them, installed the drivers, plugged it in, and started hearing this distorted crackling sound whenever another sound was on, like Music, Watching a Video, etc. I tried so many fixes mentioned when I looked this up on Google, after 8 hours I got tired of it, and just removed the USB Connector from the headset, and plugged them straight into the jack. So now, I have a headset, without surround sound.

A friend told me to get the Sound Blaster Omni Surround 5.1, and plug my headset into this, he said he should fix it, he wasn't sure, but I trust him. But I wanted to know if this would work? Does my headset (Sennheiser PC 363D) would work with the Sound Blaster Omni Surrounder 5.1? Or am I wasting my time?

A headset will always be stereo... never surround. No driver or sound card can produce this, it is physically impossible.


The 5.1 refers to five speakers and the bass bin support, not some sort of stereo algorithm or anything like that.


So you could buy the card and plug your headset in, but it will still be stereo.
