I just pulled the trigger on a set of ultrasone pro 750s as they were half price for cyber Monday! biggrin.gif I have been waiting for quite some time to ditch this Logitech g35 which has been awesome but the lack of working drivers for over 2 years and knowing there is so much better sound out there has led me to upgrade.

My question is that I have an x-fi extreme music (big one, all gold, real x-fi chip onboard) that I must have bought maybe 8 years ago or so or more! Anyways it works perfectly and am currently using it, but is there something better I could buy? I have some gift cards for memory express so anything there is available to me at little to no charge. Also I don't like the idea of reaching behind my computer just to plug in my headset whenever I game so is plugging it into the front jack on my speakers or using some sort of splitter worth it? I want to get the best gaming audio experience herr and have not looked into pc audio since i last bought this x-fi when battlefield 2 came out!

Thanks in advance and im typing this on my phone at 3am so if there are strange typos well there you go.

Oh I hear new sound cards are coming out soon as well and I could wait for those if they are worth it. I don't think my ultrasones will be in for at least 2 weeks or so.
