Whats the current state of the Asus ROG Phoebus? Headphones to go with it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I read when it came out, it had game support issues and crashed some games...namely BF3 if I recall, which I don't play anyways...

I was wondering if anyone knows if they addressed the issues that supposedly plagued the Phoebus....

 

I know its not quite up to par with other Asus cards in the same price range, and even potentially outclassed by the cheaper DGX and STX, but I was instantly attracted to the breakout headphone controller--the one thing I miss about my crappy but convenient USB headset is the mute/volume control, especially upgrading to windows 7 where muting isn't as easy as it used to be.  The other thing I was considering is the superior headphone support--I was considering also purchasing some nice headphones to go with it, thinking something up to $500 price range (although I haven't decided on this either) given it has a somewhat hefty headphone amp.

 

Currently using onboard audio and Audio Technica ATH AD700's--which is great, don't get me wrong--but kind of miss bass.  For reference mostly play non-FPS's/big into League of Legends & Indies and into Techno & DnB on the music side, so while I'm not wanting to overload on bass, was hoping to consider an upgrade to what I have now. 

 

Any thoughts or advice?

Try asking about the statues of the Asus Phoebus on this thread.

Ah, did a search, but I guess I didn't look hard enough--thanks PurpleAngel!

 

edit: Ah bummer...I didn't even click the link before replying--problem with that forum, is that it appears to be biased with problems with the soundcard (unless that was the point of the link)--anyone who owns it happen to like it or hate it?  I guess I'm really looking for a reason to avoid it, otherwise I was going to grab one here soon.
