In both threads there are people familiar with this card. I can't help you out personally unfortunately, still rocking the Titanium HD.

kidding aside:

 

your question is so subjective, you won´t get an answer better than mine (course someone can ******** you). personal preferences, game of choice and headset used, are such strong variables in this equation resulting in a big "gotta try it for yourself"

 

i can chip in that i don´t like the Bass Option and i´m hearing alot of degradation if i put the sliders past 50% for surround and past 25% for the crystalizer

 

now give me a happy face..

I'll look into it thanks. BTW I had the Titanium HD. I always got the stupid popping noises.

I have a question for you.  Do you have the Zx or ZxR model with the Audio Control Module (ACM)?  If so, your headphone plugged into the ACM greatly affects the sound quality when using the SBX option - especially the surround option. 

 

If you are using the ACM, plug your headphones directly into the headphone out on the back of the card and compare again.   I can not use the ACM for audio, I only use it as a mic.
