gaming headphone surround setup?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am looking for the best quality audio out of my computer that can also simulate surround sound (gaming) for my headphones.  I currently have the Fiio E9 and an HT Omega Striker soundcard.  Should I upgrade the soundcard to the HT Omega Claro Halo which is supposed to be able to power headphones up to 600 ohm and also has Dolby Headphone, or get a Turtle Beach DDS/Mixamp and a Fiio E7?  

 

Not sure if the latter option makes much sense, but would appreciate some input.

What headphone(s) will you be using with this setup?

 

A Creative Labs X-Fi Titanium HD is about the best gaming card you can get.

Work with headphones up to 330-Ohms, no need for external headphone amplifier.

Sometimes will go on sale with a mail in rebate.

I have a Fostex T50RP, incoming FA-011, and am probably going to get a Beyer dt 990 600 ohm.  Thanks for the tip, I will check out the xfi titanium.

The Beyerdynamic DT 990 600-Ohm will not work with the Titanium HD (limit to 330-Ohm)

But the Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card will work with 600-Ohm headphones.

The Titanium HD with an E9 is a great gaming combo.
