looking for a pre-solution here the front port of my tower doesn't like the plugin on the HD518s, only playing sound through my left ear unless I hold it farther in (sometimes it'll get in just the right spot, but it usually takes 10+ minutes of messing to get it right) the soundcard's main analog jacks in the back of the tower will be used by my speakers, there is not a dedicated headphone jack. there is a headphopne jack on the speakers themselves, however, I actually use 2 different sets of speakers (5.1 as the front/side/center-sub, and 2.1 in the rear) so I assume if I were to plug it into the front system, the rear speakers would still play. is there something else I can plug into my soundcard, like a different input, that would still give me the benefit of the various gaming features from my Creative X-Fi Titanium card, but maybe be able to switch inputs from computer GUI? I'd preferably not want to have to plugin/unplug things from the back of the tower frequently....
thanks for any help guys
I do have a bad jack on the front of my case, so I'm constantly unplugging my speakers whenever I want to use my headphones. It's a PITA, but it should be resolved soon when I go pickup by shipment
Oh no, I picked up the Vali a while ago :D
However, I didn't have the cable to go into my pc, so I ordered them by monoprice with the cheapest shipping 2 or 3 weeks ago, and still haven't received the damn cables I ordered!! So I've had the Vali for weeks unable to use it. It's even worse than not picking it up, because I can look at it but can't use it! lol
However, I also saw the Modi on Amazon with Prime, so I ended up ordering that, making sure I had the right USB cable for that, haha. So since the cables still haven't shown up, and the Modi should be in tomorrow (might not pick it up until Saturday though, still have to clean out my car so I can cross the border to pick it up) along with some car stuff I ordered, I should be able to finally listen to it this week!
The DT990 Premium 250ohm's still sound good through my Xonar DG, but they are muddled. Can't wait to try them with a proper amp. And just my very quick thoughts on the DT990's--they're very fun. Not even close in any way shape or form to analytical headphones, not a big soundstage (though this is with the Xonar), and very V-shaped. Still very fun though.
