I love the openness and light weight of earbuds, unfortunately those earbuds I tried such as OMX95, MX375, were lack of bass and musicality. Then I found Fiio EM3 is under $10 and got good review,...

Compared to nothing (in the way of noise cancelling) these are better than that. Damning with faint praise? Yeah, I guess so, but really what can you expect for the price. Sony makes a product...
There seems to be a lot of issues with the sound quality for these 2nd gen Bose phones. These came out before wireless headphones were in any significant use, and when few other companies were...

The ZxR has the same opamp used in the FiiO E09k. It's implemented differently, but it ought to be a great stop unless/until you want to scale up with summit-fi gear. Honestly, I can't shake how good things were sounding last night with my Q701 plugged straight into the humble-but-capable Omni – so I would suggest an Omni and AKG K612 first, see how you like it, and you can always tack on an external DAC (with optical input) and Amp later. Spread out your investments while you get to learn and understand your tastes.
So you are saying that its good option to go for the ZXR and not for sound card+external amp ?
The omni sound card is any good ? For surround sound and amplification ? Positioning audio 3d surround ?

A Sound Blaster Z OEM + an external amp will cost about the same as the ZxR, but will give you a nicer amp and more flexibility.
The Omni uses the same surround DSP as all the other Z cards (SBX Pro). It just comes in an external laptop-friendly package.post #20669 of 374572/5/14 at 4:34ampost #20670 of 374572/5/14 at 5:13am
