    Speaker Setup: nVidia SoundStorm

    nVidia SoundStorm is a program that lets users customize their sound settings. It consists of an equalizer, preset equalizer settings, setup of speakers, as well as the helpful "Test Tone" feature. The "Test Tone" feature is a feature where your computer sends sound out to their respective speaker to test the location of the sound. For example, the sound "Left Speaker" will be heard where the left speaker is, the words "Right Surround" will be heard where the right rear speaker is suppose to be, and so forth.

    Results: The sounds were projected where they were suppose to be. However, it was very evident that the front left and right speaker sounds were much louder than those of the center and rear speakers. The most logical reason for this would be because since most sounds that are played are usually 2-channel (e.g. music, games, etc…), Zalman tried to focus on the a stronger stereo sound, just in case the users that were using the headphones were playing 2-channel sound, such as an mp3. Center sound was where it was suppose to be, in the center of the headphones. Surround rear sounds were heard at the back of the headphones. However, the center and rear surround channels are faint, and so users would not be able to gain an equal amount of sound from every channel, unless you lowered the volume of the front left and right channels (which is annoying in my opinion).
