Hello.
 
I recently purchased an Asus Xonar U7 for gaming/music/movies in that order.  I have Sennheiser g4me one headphones (50 ohms). I'm not sure if the xonar is damaged but the sound is atrocious compared to my ~7 year old internal sound blaster card.  
 
My question is do I RMA it or do you guys have any other recommendations for a better external card?  Price should be ~$100 US.  I need an external sound card because I travel and use it when I game on my laptop.  
 
Thank you for your time.

Contact Asus tech support, see if they can offer any help.
Otherwise return the U7.

  So you recommend the U7 over the X-Fi HD?

 
I prefer Asus over Creative, but just can't say for sure which is better (U7 vs X-Fi HD).
