Thread Starter 
Do you think buying an Asus XONAR Essence STX is overkill for my Sennheiser PC-360's?

May use a good quality pair of headphones in the future. The problem is where I live I have nowhere to experience a really good pair of headphones so I don't really know what I'm missing out on. frown.gif
