Recently I started playing Watch Dogs game with SXFI turned on and it starts to grow on me. Out of curiosity I switched to SXFI battle mode and while the dialogs were a bit strange (like coming from the center of my head), surround sounds were unbelievably easy to pin point in space. I can easily imagine that this would be highly desirable feature especially in FPS games. Compared to scout mode, I didn't notice any heavy compression or unnatural EQ with SXFI battle mode turned on.The more I read the more I am confused. Some are loving SXFI even for FPS games. Some like it for movies/atmosphere but say there is too much reverb. Some say gen2 fixed excessive reverb issues. Very little information about what battle mode does other than reducing/eliminating reverb, but seems like it also applies some eq and compression. What I did find that the personalization has a significant effect, but no way to manually tweak it other than repeating the process and hoping for better results.
