    Xonzr Phoebus vs Maximus VIII Formula SupremeFX 2015

    Hi I just build a new system using the Maximus VIII Formula. My question is should I use my Xonar Phoebus sound card that I purchased several years ago, or should I just use the Formula SupremeFX sound system? I don't use speakers at all, just my Sennheiser 360 headset. Thank You

    And what`s holding you to test them both and see which sounds better for you ? But i`ll probably go with the Phoebus, but still go give it a try, i did this test with my Phoebus vs Maximus VII Ranger and the Phoebus sounds better for me.

    I can do that and will most likely do it, but I wanted opinions from others with far better hearing than me. I spend 40 years working in a power plant and the background noise of turbines, pumps and compressors have taken a toll on my ears. I can hear ok, it just takes a little longer for my hearing to acclimate to game sounds. Good sound quality is even better for those who can't distinguish it.
