The Peace equalizer is pretty good, as it interfaces with the equalizerAPO. There will be some pre-set options in Peace that you can utilize, but I typically manually move the sliders for balancing.


An additional setting to double check is between whether the audio output is going to the Arctis(game) or Arctis(chat).

I have the Arctic 7, and I didn't realize that they were two different options until I played Apex and the sound was coming in mono rather than stereo, thus I had no directional hearing. The Arctis(game) setting is the actual stereo one, whereas the Arctis(chat) is mono only. By changing the default playback option and adjusting the little dial that comes with the headset, you should be able to have good surround sound gameplay.
