Should you only use the stereo setting on your headphones for movies, Or can you also listen to it for music. I'm a noob at listening to music and knowing what is the best settings. When I have stereo off you can hear more voice from the music but everything sounds more behind you but when you have stereo on it sounds like you know in a surround more normal sounding..
My TV has a surround hookup but for the most part, everyday TV network broadcast, surround doesn't do anything to me, maybe in a PBS Nature program do they sending me true surround I can enjoy. For TV watching I have set mine for stereo front+rear, using the rear as fillers. In this mode, my receiver does send LFE to the sub if present, and the center is also active. Depends what yours does.
