A Constant Source of Frustration
28 September 2012
Summary: By Jeeze When the conditions are perfect for this product to operate as designed, the sound is truly incredible... but many people will never experience that. Apparently, some internal component which should have been shielded, was not shielded... and so when the X-Fi Go! Pro is used with low impedance headphones, a very intrusive static noise is heard at lower to medium volumes.
Summary: By Michael 'De Smurführer' Thomsen Being no audiophile, I was fairly satisfied with this unit when using it with loudspeakers. However, when I started listening to classical piano music through headphones I noticed that the sound was actually quite dreadful. The bass distorts and creates annying high overtones. Not good enough. Now I'm buying the ASUS Sonar U3, which according to some online reviews is better. I wish I could afford a true high end unit. Oh well.
