I am relatively new to the high-end audio stuff (although I've been reading stuff on here for a while), and was wondering what the best sound card or amp would be for an AKG K702. I was looking at the Sound Blaster Z card, but then read that the K702 might still need an amp in order to really hear the power of the headphones. However, I also read that the Sound Blaster Z can power the K701/Q701 decently..so I guess I'm looking for a more straightforward answer lol. I'm not exactly an audiophile, although lower quality sound does pain me at times..hence why I am finally spending the money to upgrade from my Razer Carcharias headset (a pitiful attempt at a cheap replacement for my previous headset) and Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion Series sound card. I mainly play video games (FPS for the most part) and listen to music (epica, rock, dubstep and other electronic music). Does anyone here have some good suggestions on what would be best? Any help would be great. Thanks.
