Cheap good surround sound?

38 replies 309 views Edited Oct 13, 2013

Hey guy's I want to know what a good surround sound would be for gaming? When I get a PS4 I want the best experience but on a very cheap affordable price like lets say.. $40 and up? If they do have something like that..

Your not going to get a surround sound system for $40. You do realize that a suround sound system is made up of 5 speakers a subwoofer and a receiver? You cant get all that for $40.00

 

Your looking more at $200-$250 for budget systems and $300 -$500 for mid range systems and $500 + for higher end systems.

Well, I just did some digging now online and I saw some on amazon for like 60-70$ and up so it's not that bad.

I'm pretty sure hes talking about a surround sound system, not head sets.

Actually if you read the title and his first post, there is no mention of a surround sound "system" in any of his words...

Surround sound what? Headset? System? No specification beside yours assuming he's asking for a system set up. I have some people ask me for a good surround sound setup and once dug deeper, they meant headset... No beef or anything, just saying Smiley Wink!

Well from what Ive seen most of the time when people are asking about surround sound its a system with speakers. If it were a head set then the OP probably would have said good gaming head set to buy for $40.

Touche - Well then I hope someone can help him out then like yourself Smiley Wink!

 

I personally don't have a room to properly set up speakers, even if I wanted to I personally believe sound system don't thoroughly immerse you in a game enough due to missed sound experiences/cues a headset provides. While playing multiplayer in a shooter for instance, I'd use a headset way before I bother with a full sound system - my two cents Smiley Happy

I plan on upgrading my surround sound system soon. Ive had the one I have now for a long time and I want one w/ an HDMI hook up. Mine still works great its just outdated. 

 

I will admit that a head set gives you a really good sense of whats going on around you but I'm also basing this off my old surround sound and my new elite head set. But I want a surround sound system for movies / TV and not just gaming either so it works out well.
