sound card for sennheiser-pc-360

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Friend of mine is looking for a cheap sound card to use with his Sennheiser PC-360, budget being about £40 maybe a little more. I'm terrible when it comes to audio components not understanding what makes a good card or bad. I understand this headset would require more power then on-board can provide, can you help me out and make a recommendation.

will be shopping from here although if something more suited is elsewhere that's no problem

I use asus xonar DG with my PC360.
Great position sound cue in games like, blk ops, bc2, arma2:OA, crysis2 ...etc.
Great soundstage for music & soundtrack.
This headphone doesn't need extra power to drive,
but headphone amp in DG helps.
I use headphone 90% of the time.
It fits my budget too

Asus Xonar DG would be the best choice. The headphone helps real well. Just make sure you set it to the correct ohms your headphones is.
It is PCI socket
