Headphone & motherboard questions.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

Quick question, getting me some new headphones - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=SP-001-CS

Now the question i have is this, should I get the cheaper analogue version or the USB. The main reason im asking if because im just not sure of the onboard quality from my ASUS p5q deluxe motherboard. All I do know is that its 8 channel and apparently has 7.1 surround.

What ya recon? USB or analogue then?

Cheers for the advice!

Your link just goes to the front page not a product page.

As for your question, audio is far better through analogue versus USB even without a sound card. I'm assuming you linked a decent set of headphone's so consider getting even a cheap soundcard and it will make them sound better, more full.

link takes me to the front page of the site

like above poster said its better to go analogue when it comes to headphones, going USB might make it more prone to interference which isn't a good thing to hear.

Sorry guys, heres the link again http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=SP-001-CS

So i dont need the USB version to get 7.1 and my sound should be just as good if not better if i go analogue in your opinions?

Bonus as well being 20 pound cheaper.

7.1 with headphone's doesn't work well, I've got a pair of Tritton ax720's and Sennhieser hd 555's. The hd 555's costed half as much and perform just as good if not better, so single driver instead of multi driver's emulating surround is far better.
