Significant difference in Headphone Surround being an option, cleaner/sweeter DAC with a better S:N (signal to noise ratio), and a more powerful "amp."

So I guess it is significantly better. For a budget of around $30-$40, is the DG the best?

I've never seen anyone suggest otherwise.

Thanks again for all your help. The Xonar DG it is, then.

EDIT: My PC doesn't even have any optical ports; I just realized that. My older PC did, but this one apparently doesn't. Oh well, I guess I'll get the Xonar DG or something along its lines, and then upgrade from there.
I apologize for any weird formatting the forum does, as about half of my posts (a specific post: the one about what open slots I have) are made on my phone. Sorry.
No problem, not really your fault. The system reads a bunch of dashes as a shortcut to draw a dividing line, which can be nice separating topics.

Hope you like your sound card.

I can see where it would be useful.

As do I!

It looks like I'm going to be ordering the Annie headband, soon. I can't stand these bumps any longer... mad.gif

 

Edit: I can't wait to see how it will look on my black Q701.

If you remove the drivers then bend, there should be no way they would stay loose. Unless you have baby ears. The metal clips can bend as much as you want.

Good luck removing the headband without breaking something. blink.gif

Also, it would've been much cheaper getting the K601 headband which is also flat. wink.gif

Note to self: Don't wear the 280s while you have a headache beforehand. Very, very bad idea...

(I'm not taking them off though.)

Man, I'd stretch the 280s over a stack of books for like a week... that clamp... nightmares...

I've DONE that! the clamp fixes itself after whatever time you left it unclamped. 1 day on book stack? 1 day unclamped. 1 week on books? 1 week unclamped. Then again, they don't have that amazing isolation without the clamp, so I'm completely okay with it. But when I have a headache and I don't even need isolation because its night time... ugh... I shall go on though, because I need me my music!

What else would we do with our lives? Hang out with friends? Don't be silly.

 

Also, if this is how it feels to wear 280s by everyone else, I can see why they are hated so much. Ow.

 

I have some new headphones coming in the mail, though, but sadly they don't really isolate too much, and they definitely do not work for mixing/mastering(which the 280s aren't exceptional at, either, but better).

Get the Mad Dogs (new ones). They seal amazingly well, are extremely comfy, and sound amazing. I'll be uodating my review of them to account for the differences.

Basically looking at an 8.75 fun, 7.25 competitive.

Looks like the last MD just didnt fit me right. That and it wasn't nearly as engaging as this one.
