(This part is optional to read) First of all, I'm a newbie in Audiophile world. Secondly I'd like to apologise for my terrible English. So everything started few weeks back when I got myself a pair of not very expensive (by your standards) IEM's ~50$. Since then I can't even listen to my super-cheap PC speakers and headphones. So I thought I could spend like ~70$ on better headphones, but is that really that simple, since I haven't got good audio source.?
I'd like to buy balanced and comfortable headphones at around ~70$ (thinking about Sennheiser 428), and use my PC as an audio source. And here's the problem - I haven't got expensive sound card or amplifier. Could my current Creative Xtreme Music use full potential of those headphones? Or shouldn't I buy headphones like thit untill I get a better soundcard?
