Depends on which headphones. I noticed it immediately with my JVC HA-DX3.

I have one, sounds awesome with my AD700s.

Only problem is I can't get it going on Linux.

I absolutely did and they don't use the same drivers, it comes with them on the disc and there are new features on the console launcher in the entertainment mode, the game mode was identical. This sounds more powerful than the fatality I had. I run my volume in windows at 50%, in bfbc2 its amazing for sure.

It's always better to run windows sounds at 100% and adjust games and everything else to compensate, the card has power, you want to use it to it's fullest potential.

Are these the best headphones for $100? What about a set for $150?

1) there's the audio subforum here!

2) It's like asking 'Is this the best car for 10k?'

i.e. It's stupid as it depends on your wants and needs out of the car and how you're going to use it. Same applies to headphones (or really anything).

Neg. Why? Because of firmware limitations i.e. above a certain point, the software will either add added software volume gain and/or the components get too stressed at the power load and adds distortion as a result. For Creative / Auzentech it's 55%, Asus soundcards 76% (been measured).
