Headphones without soundcard

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello,

My old headphones just broke so I am in need of new ones.
The thing is that the headphones/set I am going to buy must have good positional audio since it is most used for gaming and I don't really use them for anything else.

My budget is something like 150euros but I can extend it a little maybe.

I have considered buying Sennheiser PC 360s but I heard that they are crap without soundcard. Is there any cheap soundcards, I mean CHEAP to make the audio with PC 360s decent?

I am going to order the headset from Finland and the market here is damn bad for the headphones so if you're going to say buy Superlux/Brainwaz or something don't because we don't have them here.

Also everything here is bit costy.

I don't know what others are going to suggest so, hang in there a little. But if it means anything to you I use one of these $20 Creative USB Sound Blaster cards with great results. They certainly make a noticable difference.

Heard that USB soundcards are not that good. I am complete amateur tho so I might be wrong.

Yeah, can't expect much from USB. I only use laptops not PC. Try posting in the computer audio section. wink.gif

Hello again...

Probably best to wait 12 - 24 hours. 

Goodluck!
