Excellent for music, games, and movies

  • Summary: Although the price is high, I think it's worth it! When changing the speaker output (i.e., from main speaker output to headphones), there is an audible click from the sound card, as if a physical switch is being changed. I'm not sure what this is, but I thought it was interesting..
  • Pros: I bought this card because I wanted something better than the onboard sound on my motherboard, and this card fits the bill well. It sounds absolutely great, especially when paired with speakers or headphones that can take advantage the sound quality, such as the Sennheiser headset that is include...
  • Cons: The price is a bit high for a sound card. Also, there is no MIDI support - The card does not include a hardware MIDI synthesizer, nor does it include any midi I/O ports. As someone who likes to create & record music, I am very disappointed by this aspect of the card. It would be nice to have some...

Sounds great

  • Summary: Does not have high def audio codecs. Does not have S/PDIF inputs (only outputs). I can't give 5 stars even though I have high confidence in the quality of the product.
  • Pros: I made my wife listen to her favorite CD and her response was, "That's AWESOME". That's high praise from someone who doesn't like big heavy headphones or cares about sound very much.
  • Cons: It was a struggle to install the driver (win 7 64bit here). The driver seemed to install but during install and after reboots, the software kept saying that the board was unplugged or needed power (external power connector), but that was not a correct error statment because I measured power on th...

  • Summary: Wouldn't really say this is a con but my only issue was the drivers, or more specifically the audio control center. They don't make it readily available. On the install CD it doesn't list that as part of the stuff it installs, it doesn't create a desktop icon or anything, I had to run a search on my...
  • Pros: I'll start by saying off the bat, I'm no audiophile. I decided to grab a sound card mostly b/c it's been a very long time since I've owned one, long enough that I can't really remember when exactly I used one last. Not being an audio junkie I can say I probably would've been content with the onbo...
  • Cons: No real cons thus far, it works, I can notice an audio improvement even though I'm not audiophile by any means.

  • Excerpt: Целый месяц я выбира звуковую карту, читал обзоры сравнивал характерисики, смотерл кто что пишет на форумах. Хотел крутую карту и я её купил! ASUS Xonar Xense Gamer Set. Каково же было моё удивление когда не заработал выход гарнитуры на фронтальной панели, ну ладно ерунда, бывает, всё равно...
  • Pros: Мощьный звук, очень удобная гарнитура, русский софт!
  • Cons: Не отрабатывает своих денег! Если сломается что-то одно везти в гарантию придётся везти весь комплект. Если покупаете, проверяйте всё на месте.

  • Summary: Dette er sÃ¥ langt et godt lydkort med de driverne som finnes tilgjengelig. Det er nemlig ikke utviklet drivere for Windows 8. man fÃ¥r installert kortet med Windows 7-drivere, men det er ikke optimalt. Windows 8-drivere kommer først Q1-2013
