Creative Aurvana Live Headphones.  $75 on amazon.  I don't think your gonna get surround sound unless you plan on paying a little extra for a fiio e7, eo7k, or e17 if you can, or a good soundcard.

Just to be clear, this is a pc setup correct?  If so do you have any idea on what your sound card is?

ya this is setup on my laptop ( acer aspire 5740g ) n it has a minimal built in sound card.

i have heard of headphones with internal sound cards for ex. arctic p531 so is it good , do i steel require an amp?

Imo amping never hurts and almost always improves sound, but amping isnt always required for a good sound. You should be focused settling on a pair of headphones first, then once you get them try them out and decide for yourself if they really REQUIRE an amp.

So i just bought this corsair vengeance 1500
And i find the sound to be pretty good for gaming and movies.
Evrything seems to be fine jus hoped for a slightly better bass.
Can someone suggest me a good headphone amp to go with the headphones .


Is getting an amp realyy worth it ??


I use my headphones for my acer laptop 5740g ..

Isn't that headset a usb one?  If you want to use it's built in 3d surround features, you won't need the amp as it is driven by the usb.

You mean to say there isn't any amp
For a usb driven headphone??

I haven't heard of an amp with USB output.  The headset itself is already getting power through the USB so I don't see the point in getting one.  Additionally, a USB headset will bypass your existing sound card because your PC will recognize it as a separate sound device completely.  If you like the sound on your headset though, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

No amp works with usb. You can't do anything about the bass except equalize it. Find a guide, and remember never to equalize by sliding the sliders up.
