Asus ROG Phoebus + Siberia V2? - Page 2

Yeah, Im leaning towards the Sennheiser HD555's and the modmic now. Thanks for the info. So should I go for a Xonar card than? My budget for a sound card is $200.

Unless you already own the HD555 or can get it used I don't see a reason to go for it. Any sub-200 audiophile headphones currently in production will outperform and outlast the 555 by a good margin. Back in 2007-2010 the 555 was all the rage within the gaming community, in fact it was also my first "real" headphones that I bought used at a good price. But it's now 2013 and the refreshed HD 5x8 series improves over the old line by quite a lot.

For gaming with that budget, I do not recommend a xonar card.

I would bump the budget by ten bucks and get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102050

It even comes with a mic that you could use (not sure about how clear it is).

It has all the audio quality of a essence stx with better positioning in games. Not that I recommend it, but it also has some extra software that is beneficial to some. You could be one of those people that benefit from it.

Hmm okay. Is it possible to just use the mainboard of the ZXR? I don't do audio recording and it would just end up taking up space in my PC, also that ribbon cable is bulky and ugly.

Yeup. Just don't loose the extra board though. You never know when you might need it. thumb.gif
