Cant Go Wrong

Dimitri B., Newegg
24 November 2015
  • Summary: I got this card for a steal, It was a Refurbished Open Box. so I payed about 80, so coming from on board sound at that price was a steal. I compared components to a new one, everything was the same so I feel the refurbished part was just to clean and detail the thing, It powers My Sennheiser Game...
  • Pros: Amazing Sound Card, Quality Components, built in Amp, external Control Box with built in environmental mic is a huge plus for me, With additional sound cancellation, my headset mic sounds crystal clear. Amp can drive Power Hungry Cans, RoG theme is nice if a Red Build is what you're going for. Br...
  • Cons: Driver Support on Asus Site is limited.

ASUS Phoebus

Anonymous, Newegg
12 October 2015
  • Summary: I would buy this again as long as the control box is working and recommend it to anyone who do not have any quality audio on their MB.
  • Pros: The sound quality is amazing, and the LEDs on the control box are a very handy feature when playing in a dark room when trying to plug in a headset. The LEDs on the card look amazing inside the case and give it an extra customized look.
  • Cons: After having the card for only a month the volume control on the control box quit working. I've updated all the drivers and have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling but nothing seems to work. I took off two eggs for this because the control box was a main feature for purchasing it. It's can ...

Defective ASUS card out of the box

John C., Newegg
8 June 2015
  • Pros: Always buy ASUS products but not having any luck this time with the sound card!
  • Cons: Can't get the ASUS sound card to recognize the speaker ports, using a ASUS Z87 motherboard. I've tried and called ASUS tech support multiple times and recently went to my tech guy, but to no avail!

  • Pros: Amazing Quality Very Sexy Looking Device
  • Cons: The worst audio drivers ive ever seen.

Excellent Sound

Silent_R493, Amazon
15 May 2014
  • Summary: I appreciate good audio but I'm not an expert. I do however play many games often and enjoy listening to music from time to time. This was a large improvement from my ALC1150 on-board audio which couldn't fully power my Sennheiser PC 350 SE due to the on-board's low powered headphone Amp.

ROG Asus Xonar Phoebus Review

Steven R. Jackson, Amazon
28 April 2014
  • Summary: This is an excellent sound card. The adaptor works great when using headphones and you have the ability to set up your speakers and environment as you desire. I use the optical out along with an amp as I am using some high end headphones and I find the card to work very well.

Love this card

Brian Reed, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Bought this card to enhance the sound of my Razer Tiamat 7.1 headset. Love it. I won't buy another creative card unless they can outdo this one. It's pricey, but it's in the top for gaming.

Mind-Blowing Sound Quality

natefish, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I'll admit, I'm not an "audiophile." But I do appreciate good sound, especially when gaming and listening to music. I bought this card to replace an aging Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium card -- Not being impressed with recent offerings from Creative, I decided to give Asus a go, since everything else...
