3. All Settings
4. Display & Sound
5. Audio output
6. Under Headset Audio/Headset format select "Windows Sonic for Headphones" then enable "use virtual surround sound."
7. If a game supports it change the sound output to 7.1 or 5.1
The “Turn on 7.1 virtual surround sound” (Windows) or “Use virtual surround in apps” (Xbox) checkbox allows all existing applications that were capable of rendering to 5.1 or 7.1 channel formats to now treat headphones as a virtual 7.1 device. Content that previously would have only been heard in multichannel via a multichannel home theater, and which would have utilized a linear downmix over headphones, can now be virtualized (using the format specified in the dropdown) and heard over any pair of stereo headphones.
