Audio Quality of a Gaming Set up - Do I need a headphone amp?


Mar 30, 2010
I was looking into getting a headphone amplifier, would that improve my sound quality any? Or would that be a waste of $25-$50?

I was wondering, does the Sennheiser PC 350 have any support for surround sound gaming? Like virtual surround sound?

Would purchasing this help my audio performance? (or a similar product, please recommend)

Got a pair of Sennheiser PC 350 for $89.95, Seller said it was open box, and it was a legit business so I can always return them if they don't work. I thought this was a great find for only $90.

Going to use the Sennheiser for PS3+PC Gaming, as I use the same monitor for both. I do have a connector to make the headset work for the ps3, ordered it on amazon, compatible with 7.1 channel surround sound as well, it was only $6 or something.
