Are you using a Titanium-HD sound card?

Did you disable the motherboard's on-board audio, in the BIOS, when you installed the Titanium-HD?

I would assume the Sound Blaster ZxR has a lower output impedance then 35-Ohms (I know the Titanium-HD has a 35-Ohm output impedance)

(I know some website is Russia sau the SB-ZxR has a 40-ohm output impedance)

Almost everything else that uses the SB-ZxR's TI 6120A2 headphone amplifier chip has a 10-Ohm output impedance.

The cheaper SB-Z and SB-Zx have what i would assume is a cheaper headphone amplifier chip and they have an output impedance of 22-Ohms.

also ZXR have 35ohm to output from reviews measurements :(

With HD598 i must to keep the volume around 6-8% in low gain mode ( with high gain its impossible )

With HD600 around 8-10% in low gain and 6-8% with high gain.

With Fidelio X2 its the same to 598.

I bought 598

I confirm it is more forgiving than HD600.
