audio ports in back of PC.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I recently installed a Sound Blaster on my PC.  The sound is great but two out three of my headphone (ATH M50 and Senn HD280) have coiled cables which makes the cord stretch and bend around the case.  Can I use a Behringer MA400 Monitor Headphone Amplifier in order to have better access to my port for quick head phone switching?

Why don't you just buy a cable extension?

Hopefully you disabled the motherboard's on-board? in the BIOS, when you installed the Sound Blaster Z(?)

I have some extensions, but I feel that they changethe sound quality.

Yes I did.  The only Sound Blaster is the only thing active.

The Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z.  I just hooked up the 8ft extension I got from Radioshack.  It seems ok.
