Thanks, I'll look into getting that. I did fix my issue though. The L and R volume settings were at 80% in the ASUS settings (they weren't on Windows though). I put them at 100% and now the sound is MUCH better. 
I have an Asus Z77 motherboard with a Realtek ALC892 audio chip (onboard sound). I have a Dell U2412M speaker bar plugged into the audio out and I typically have my Sennheiser 598 plugged into the sound bar. I have the most recent driver for that audio chip & am running Windows 7 Home Premium. At 100% volume, the sound is just slightly loud, if that makes any sense.   Here's the things I've tried to do to increase the volume:   I've tried tinkering with the Realtek &...
I bought that stuff quite a while ago. It's all been sitting in my closet as I've been saving up for sound card and PSU. I hope the CPU chip is good though because this is the first & last desktop I'm buying. I figure laptops will be able to do everything a desktop can do down the road anyways. 3570k was/is a really popular choice at the time. Pretty much gonna get RM750 as it's only $10 more. I'm going to read some reviews on it now.   I'm conflicted on whether to get...
I'm looking for a PCIE sound card (not many options from what I've seen). I can't decide between creative labs and Asus Xonar sound cards. The sound card MUST be PCIE, as my motherboard doesn't have any PCI slots. I pretty much always use my Sennheiser 558 headphones as well. Any advice would be appreciated. Here's the items I already bought for my first PC build:   HARDWARE   CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop...
558s it is then. thanks for the help :)
Could really use some help. I can't decide between 380 or 558s. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first time paying over $20 for a pair of headphones. I'm not an audiophile, just wanna use it with my PC/macbook/ipod, etc...
 I'm confused. Which 4' replacement cable are you talking about? It seems the one on Amazon is pretty good. Also, any attachments or anything else I'm not thinking of? I want to get everything at once.
would this cable also work?   http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Adapter-Female-6-3mm-3-5mm/dp/B008JGWY2Y/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1380486838&sr=8-7&keywords=sennheiser+558+cable   Also, are there any other accessories for these headphones that I should consider? My brother has some box that creates surround sound for the headphones, which is pretty cool, not really a necessity for me though.
Can anyone who has or had the 558s comment on whether or not I'll need some type of adapter to plug them into an iPad or iPod?
Thanks for the advice.   My brother has the Sennheiser 558 headphones. Do you have an opinion on them? They seem really comfortable, but I think they have a plastic band (he's asleep so not going to wake him). When I started looking for headphones, I couldn't believe the prices. I can't believe I'm going to spend over $100 on a pair of headphones.
