So here's the deal, I owned a pair of HD 555's back in the day before I (for whatever reason) started using headsets for the longest of time. I decided to switch back to a headphone/mic combo after my Razer Megalodon finally died out on me after ~4 years.
I picked up a pair of Sennheiser HD 558's and a Blue Yeti Mic. Here's where the problem starts; If I plug my headphones in the front jack of my PC, I get some very noisy interference that literally makes the 558's unusable. If I plug them in the back, the sound volume is much, MUCH, lower. I literally have sound max'd and it's nowhere near as loud as in the front.
Is there any solution to this? I'm assuming fixing the front jack would require shielding wires or re-wiring in general which I'm not too comfortable with, but is there any way to make the back jack on the computer put out more power like the front? Maybe I should just buy an amp then? If so, any suggestions? I was looking at the FiiO E10 if need be, but I don't know if that's too much or too little for the 558's.
