I bought the DS along with the Corsair HS1 headset. The combination is pretty sweet. In BC2, I can hear people crouching through the bushes 50yds away. Not to mention I can hear a tank from anywhere on the map. Not kidding, the sounds are very distinctive. Movies sound good as well. The audio center has plenty of adjustments but make sure you have the older drivers. With the newest ones, don't remember version number, everything would washed together. Using the older drivers fixed that and haven't had any problem since.
