Default Need more noise!!

Stupid question here. I have a 7.1 Soundblaster sound card installed, But my problem is it just is not loud enough with my headphones. Going through my speakers it's by far loud enough, But the headphones just don't satisfy me. I bought Bose's best headphones and they sound absolutely amazing, But the volume just isn't loud enough. I've turned up the volume in Master as well as the player playing it, But still.

Anything I can do?

Ok,So you have upped the master volume in the sound control panel,you have made sure the volume is max in the media player you are using,and its not loud enough?

Correct. I don't get it. I've accessed every volume control setting I can locate and it's all on Max, But still not satisfying yet.

ROFL,If you plug in these headphones to a stereo or whatever,are they still too quiet?

That's a Negative. They then become too loud.

Hmmm,Is it an Intergrated sound card or a proper sound card?
