Who else has a Medusa headset...?


Well-known Member
...and can you tell me if the rear channels on yours are really tinny and lacking in bass? Or is mine a dud? Or is my old Audigy 1 soundcard not coming up with the goods?

It may be partly the source material - I don't have much that produces surround sound apart from Deus Ex, and that may be designed for a Dolby ProLogic setup, but the effect on that is rather weird: you hear a security robot stamping as it walks up to you (THUD-whine-THUD-whine-THUD-whine) then you hear it behind you, but with all the bass suddenly gone (click-whine-click-whine-click-whine).

The sound-card test sequence ("left front", "right front", "centre", etc.) also sounds very thin in the back channels.

I suppose I should try plugging it into the output from my Bryston SP1.7 to test it properly, I just can't face the number of wires involved. :rolleyes:


I am thinking of getting the Medusa 5.1 headphones for Xmas but I can't see anywhere that states the length of the cable, could you help please ??

Many thanks,

The rear speakers are supposed to sound more 'distant'. Have you got bass properly redirected on the soundcard?
Erm... I think so. I'll check. There is certainly a very striking difference between the "front" and "rear" channels - if it were a bass redirection problem, you'd expect it to be more universal.
