So I'm about to get the Asus Xonar DS 5.1 sound card. I am going to hook up my Klipsch Promedia 2.1 speakers. I have some audio-technica noise cancelling headphones that I want to use sometime. For the convenience, there is a headphone jack on the klipsch satellite. If I plug in my headphones in that speaker, how will the sound be? Will it be from the control pod or from the sound card to the speaker to my headphone?
That's not the question I'm asking. I'm asking if the headphone jack on the speaker will have the same audio quality as the headphone jack on the back of the sound. So the speakers are plugged into the sound card. Now what if I plug the headphone into the speaker?
I would guess the headphone jack on the Xonar DS's back panel would be the best place to plug the headphones.
I just plug my headphones into the speaker's (Logitech Z5300) headphone jack just because it's easier.
(can't get the case headphone jack to work anyway).
