Bought Sennheiser RS220's any other gear needed?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
just purchased a set of the RS220 wireless headset since they just went on sale and ive been eyeing them for a bit ( wires irritate me). is there anything i need to make them sound better over onboard sound? i cant add a sound card because its an ITX build but i see DAC being recommended sometimes for ITX builds but have no clue if that applies to wireless headsets. also what type of audio connection is best to use, its got multiple - RCA analog, coaxial, optical

im coming from a long time use of junk turtle beach headsets so really im sure even onboard sound will be a huge improvement but if i can spend a little bit more and get the best sound possible im all about that.

If you give it a digital connection (coax or optical) it uses the DAC in the transmitter unit. Otherwise you use the RCA with your onboard or an external DAC. If you want an external sound card that can do simulated surround, you could look into the Creative Omni 5.1
