I wouldn't suggest it. I have the akg 271s and the audigy 2 zs. The sound is not very good straight out of the headphone out, however, my only amp is the integrated one in my benchmark dac1, so that probably isn't a very fair comparison. These phone do need good amplification to not sound dull.

uh yeah, almost everything sounds better than an audigy 1, I have one and it sucks (except for gaming). I'm very happy with my M-Audio Audiophile USB for music. I've left the Audigy in for when I want to do some gaming. They work fine together.
