like the title say i just bought a pair of sennheiser game zeros with the 50mm drivers. i have a asrock 970a-g/3.1 mobo with the Realtek ALC1150. ive tried using both sets of jacks on the front and back of my computer but nothing seems to change. i dont know much about sound so if someone could walk me through this i would really appreciate it.

Seems like there are 2 versions of the Game Zero. The older model was 150 ohm and the newer ones are 50 ohm. The 150 ohm versions absolutely need an amp and even the 50 ohm versions might not sound great with low end onboard sound.
