    Motherboard is...

  2. with those you can discern some change in sound quality imporvement, with the xonar STX by asus, or anything similar
  3. the xonar STX may be overkill, its fantastic though. If you want a better sound than the motherboard with those headphones, you don't need to get crazy. My personal choice for those headphones, whether for music or gaming, would be one of these two:

    asus xonar DS

    asus xonar DX - i personally have this one, its one of the best sound cards I have owned over the last 20 years.

  4. Thanks for advice ME and festerovic!!
  5. Well, at 55 Ohms impedance, you might see more benifit from a soundcard with a built in amp, so the ASUS Xonar DG might be the way for you to go...DG, DS, or DX are probably your three best bets in any case.
  6. Totally right,

    Purchased the Xonar DG yesterday, Headphones sound the way they should now...AMAZING!!!
