Hi all,

Decided to upgrade my headset recently and managed to grab a pair of Beyerdynamic MMX 300's off eBay for £99! Well chuffed.

First things first, will a sound card like the Sound Blaster Z improve the audio I get over my motherboard? Secondly, is the Z powerful enough to drive the MMX 300s? If not, what would you suggest?

Thanks,
Paul

It should provide a huge improvement, and the headphones are just 32 ohm impedance, so the sound card is way more than enough. You usually only have to worry when the headphones you have are like 300 ohm or 600 ohm. That's when you need a headphone amp.
