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.

Nice card

Mason D., Newegg
24 November 2013
  • Pros: - Nice sound quality, and a fair amount of options to tweak sound through the phoebus driver and the dolby settings. - Supports 7.1 analog, or optical through spdif. - Noise cancelling headphones box seems decent... I don't really use it, but seemed to work well enough when I tested it
  • Cons: The newest driver (still several months old) have been working fine for me. That said, they are very slow to release drivers, and I'd like to feel like they support the card better.

Sounds great, drivers an issue

Notely, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: I was using onboard sound and upgraded to this card. My games and music sound spectacular. Huge improvement. I got this particular card so I could wire my optical cable headphones and 5.1 speakers into the card at the same time (just need to switch between them using the app it came with or...

A Fine Replacement for X-Fi Fatal1ty Pro

Jason E., Newegg
22 August 2012
  • Summary: If the cost right now is too daunting, hold off until the price goes down to get one. For overall quality and for gaming needs it's hard to go wrong with this card and should serve you well for years to come.
  • Pros: Proved to be a true upgrade over my X-Fi compared to the disappointing hardware in the Recon3D. Comparable features such as dedicated headphone and speaker ports switchable with a click of a mouse are offered here without the downgrade in SnR or speaker support (7.1 can be done on this card, the ...
  • Cons: -Only came with a quick start guide, so for a full manual you'll need to go to Asus' site. Exploring the numerous options without a manual on hand can be daunting at first. -The original set of drivers didn't play nice with Punkbuster games like BF3 but there are beta drivers online to address th...

Great hardware but drivers need some work

David J, Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: First of all, use the beta drivers and not the ones on the CD. I had to knock 1 star off because of the current driver status. The beta drivers seem to correct many of the previous issues with certain games and settings.

  • Pros: asus has released an update to fix issue with Battle Field 3 and Punkbuster
  • Cons: 1- u have to uninstall older driver completely before installing new driver. 2-do not switch Xonar Phoebus to other PCI-E slots when Xonar driver of any version is installed. If you want to change slot, please make sure the driver has been uninstalled completely

Great Sound (but be careful with Bose headphones)

Gary, Amazon
18 May 2012
  • Summary: I've decided to update my review since I finally now have headphones that work with this card. However, I will start with a bit of warning to users of Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones. My pair will only work with this card if they are plugged into the speaker port.

More than a sound card

Fatman, Scan
29 September 2013
  • Excerpt: The sound card itself is great, awesome positional sound, good clarity and depth aswell. My reason for a non 5star score is because of the seemingly useless additional connection box. For the extra you have to pay it simply isn't worth it. JUST BY THE CARD....nothing more, nothing less. Peace Fatman
