post #9531 of 38155
Some artwork of my ASTRO A40s with my custom C$ speaker tags... I have to say that these are hands down the best gaming headset I have ever used. The 2011 version has more comfortable ear-pads that make the bass sound much better compared to the previous version; along with a better, more flexible microphone. I have them setup using the ASTRO mixamp vis Toslink from my X-Fi Titanium Pro... I almost feel like I am cheating in online shooters because I can hear everything so well with the DDL, lol

I have got a cans of Sennheiser HD598 and now using it with combo "DAC FiiO e7 + AMP FiiO e9".

For music they are very good but i want to spend some money for a good EXTERNAL USB SOUNDCARD for gaming (using an laptop and the onboard soundcard is suck).

Can you people please recommend me some?

Budget is about £100 (the money i intended to pay for Steelseries 7H which i heard is no match compared to Senn Headphone like HD555 - hope that my HD598 is good too)
It will be lovely if there is virtual 7.1 and i ONLY need it for gaming, music and etc... i don't really care.

Btw, I have my interest in Steelseries Siberia USB soundcard which has virtual 7.1. How about this?

Aus Xonar U1

Around 40 Quid. Comes in black or white. Comes with Dolby Headphone. The HD598 is a very good gaming headphone.

Thank you very much!
I took a look at the Asus Xonar U1 Usb Soundcard and its functions really attract me.
It only costs about £50 in UK so i think i will go with this baby.
One more question: Does this virtual 7.1 function work well with my HD598???

I'd rather go with Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi HD as a USB soundcard, to be honest. It has DAC with better SN ratio, it has way more outputs, and it has S/PDIF in/out aswell. Plus it looks like professional thing, not a toy for 5 years old kid.

You do know that the RX700 and RX900 have bad isolation right?
