Hi guys, I am currently using a Sennheiser PC 363D and have recently started using a Sound Blaster Audigy 5/Rx but I have noticed while gaming that the actual surround sound is amazing but it also sounds distant at the same time and I can't find any fixes for it? Also I am running this on Windows 10.

How can it be "fine" and "distant" at the same time?


Please elaborate.


Have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling the audio drivers?


Worth A Look, IMO.

Sorry, I may not have been clear enough..


What I mean is that the actual surround sound from the card is working well but the audio still sounds distant which is making it not sound as it should. So I guess its like I can see the potential it has to be good sound but unfortunately it sounds distant? Also yes I did try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.
