Default Re: Razer Audio Card AC-1 & Headphones HP-1. Is it worth it?

Well, the headphones will be built to use the sound card, but they'd still work effectively on any other sound card, as the drivers, etc, are what power the sound.
As long as you'd be happy to have to convert the end section using the convertor to standard analogs, I don't see the issue in doing that.

Whoa. I just bought that sound card for $75 and I received it today (I didn't order the headphones). So far it is much better than my onboard audio that I had before, and other headphones/speakers plug into it fine. I wish the configuration let you have more flexibility in arranging your sound system, but so far, I have no complaints.

Yeah you missed a great deal on Woot. I'm pretty sure that was new in box.

Yeah I got it on Woot!, new, not refurbished. Amazing price, but I think there might be good prices on eBay, too.

Not bad. Tell me how they honestly deliver compared to your X-Fi when you get it?
