"Audio is a big deal in gaming, especially as it reveals contextual elements about your environment. For example, being able to ascertain what direction gunshots are coming from or how far away footsteps are could easily be the key to your survival (or demise). Immerse Gaming Hive is software that adds spatial audio awareness to any set of headphones while playing any PC game title. Higher-end cans may be able to take better advantage of this service's sampling rates (up to 96 kHz) and bit depths (up to 32-bit). But this service—around $15 per year or just under $40 for five years—is a great way to level the audio playing field."
