From a practical standpoint, they seem very versatile. The sound card will probably be low quality, but probably better than your onboard. My guess is that it is a low quality DAC, with some virtual surround software built in.
The headphones themselves I suspect will have bloated bass (because a vast majority of gamers want big bloated explosions), and will not be great for music, but I cannot swear by this, because I have not listened to them.
From what i have read, the bass doesnt have very much extension, but it still rather low quality. Highs seem to be okay. Not sure about mids. Again, after reading reviews, they don't seem to be a good choice for music.
For versatility over quality, they're not a bad choice, though there are much better options.
