    Heapdhones woth built-in sound card for laptop?


    Since pretty much all of the laptops have awful sound cards in them, I would like to buy headphones with sound card implemented in them. Do you have any ideas? My budget is about 90 dollars.

    What do you mean by that? I don't know of any headphones that have a built in "sound card", if that is what you are asking.

    Generally, the built in sound card is not the problem, its the small built in speakers.

    As much as I know, built in audio chipsets are awful when it comes to quality. You can buy 3000$ headphones, yet they still are not going to be able to deliver that fascinating sound, because of your on-board audio chipset. I have seen some reviews of headphones which connects to computer through usb connection (not aux) and they have external sound card implemented on them. That is what I am looking for.

    I don't know of what you are looking for. Have you done a google search?

    I have a recording studio (using Sonar X2). The RealTek audio on my motherboard is not used for my recording studio but it is used for other PC audio and it works as good or better than a SoundBlaster Xfi sound card that I once had on another PC and as good or better than an HT Omega "Striker 7.1" sound card that I had on my old recording studio PC (used for PC audio not recording studio).
