Reducing EMI without buying a new sound card?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I run things on a desktop I built back in 2010. It's really, really solid but uses an onboard sound card which makes listening to things via audio jack a bit of a pain given the electromagnetic interference. My current headphones pick up lots of buzzing from the output (plugging into the front of my case). I'm most likely picking up a Sennheiser hd 380 pro or a 558 in the coming week and I'd like to increase the quality of my audio with the biggest bang for the buck, as I don't have 70-150 to drop on both an spu and headphones.

 

I was wondering if I'm completely missing some sort of easy fix or something less expensive to solve my current problem.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Asus Xonar DG (PCI) sound card, $26 and there is a $10 mail in rebate this month (Amazon).

Fair chance it will not pick up as much interference as the on-board audio.
