The ASUS Xonar Xense is a beast, it is probably the last soundcard you will ever need to buy. It has every single necessary audio input and output for any enthusiast, and can even meet the demands of professionals. The bundled headphones, Sennheiser PC350 Xense edition, are great for games and movies, but not so much for music. The microphone attached to the PC350 is ultra clear and easily rivals more expensive standalone mics. The current retail on the entire Xonar Xense Gaming Audio Set is $299 at my favorite retailer. Some people might find this expensive for a soundcard, but honestly it is worth every penny. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Xonar Xense Premium Gaming Audio Set a 9 out of 10 score.
- Exceptional audio quality up to 192kHz/24bit
- The Xonar Xense Audio Control has a ton of options and support
- Plenty of inputs and outputs, supports all common connections
- User replaceable op-amps
- Sennheiser PC350 Xense edition headphones aren’t great for music
