Headphones for Asus Xonar Phoebus

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I might be getting an Asus Xonar Phoebus latter this year, however I would really like to know what headphones I would need to get to actually notice a difference from on board audio. The motherboard I plan on getting is the MSI Z87 G45 Gaming motherboard, which apparently comes with pretty good onboard audio. I would also be very happy if it is the absolute most expensive headphones, something reasonable. So what headphones should I get to notice a difference or should I just drop plans of getting the Phoebus in favour of getting something else?

Depends on your budget. If you have the money, get something like Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro 250ohm that can actually benefit from the overhyped headphone amplifier that the Phoebus has.
And if you don't have the money, switch the Phoebus to SBZ.
