i know that i need stereo sound, but does it matter which way round i wear my headset?
If I hear with my left ear the sound i should hear with my right one, and with my right ear the sound i should hear with my left one, does it still work?

If it doesn't work the right way round, should I turn the headset around?

Hello w/eurnamemeantobe, actually it's an interesting question. Probably not, because the theory is that you need to hear different frequencies in different ears (like 400hz in one and 410hz in another one), creating a third wave that would be 10hz (something like that, you can see it better here:, so probably won't make difference in your experience. But one thing for sure, which you probably know, you need good quality headphones.

Besides that's my theory and conclusions for what I've searched, nothing specifies this, but by the theory, which just says "different frequencies in different ears", it won't make any difference. I hoped I helped, you can also wait for another more advanced user than me to answer that.
