Cons: none so far

Pros: Sounds great
Overall a great sound card with a headset, was able to PM it and it cost 50.00 more than the other Asus cards.Running on Windows 7 64 bit with no issues . I upgraded from the Rampage Extreme Supreme FX card and Creatives Soundblaster Gamer. Gaming is great with the headset or through the 5 speakers and music, wow.

Cons: Headset connector modified (6.3mm instead of 3.5mm)No software suiteAverage driverLimited setup

Pros: High quality soundTrue bassVery good headset with high quality sound
Good quality sound, true bass and the headset is amazing but the driver is rather average, it happened some time during a song that I have a message error saying that it had a reading problem.For jacks, I was disappointed to see that the tips have been amended, limiting the use of the headset.For the card price, it is disappointing not to have a suite of software like Creative does, besides the control panel is still quite limited. You can not really set the modes and especially to safeguard its own settings.

Cons: - Included software is unwieldy and not that user-friendly- Minor compatability issues with Windows 7 64 bit

Pros: - Great bundle deal- Comfortable headset- Wonderful craftmanship- Plenty of tweaking options via the onboard amp
The ASUS Xonar Xense bundle certainly is a great bang for your buck. I've already put several hours of use on these in the two days I've had them; it goes to show how easy these are to grow into.When first installing everything, I was very impressed by the workmanship on the PCB and the headset as well. Both Sennheiser and ASUS did a great job quality-wise, and you can really see how nice and polished these thing look.But looks aside, installation took a bit longer than expected. You will need a 4 pin molex connector to power the soundcard's amp (not included), so be prepared to do some minor cable management.The biggest ding I have on this product though is the drivers. Unfortunately, Windows 7 64 bit did not recognize the most recent driver downloaded from ASUS support website. I actually had to refer to the included driver CD to get the card to work in the first place.The included software suite also lacks a clear layout, and once you figure out what all the buttons do/mean, you can tweak the card to your heart's content. There is tons of settings to play with, ranging from various surround features to crazy echo effects.The Sennheiser PC 350 is also a great combo with this as well. I personally have ridiculously small dwarf ears, but I can imagine someone with big ears would be able to manage these with ease. Biology aside, I can't see anything uncomfortable about these headphones. The included mic is nice as well, and don't be surprised if you have people shocked that you sound so different and clear.The treble is good for a midrange headphone, and the bass isn't half bad as well. This is solid headset, and if you aren't an audiophile, you'll find these work great for average music listening.Sadly, I'm not going to grant  the Xonar Xense 5 stars due to the driver compatability hiccups, but once you have this product up and running, you can really appreciate the quality that went into these products.

Cons: Weak bass

Pros: Build quality, sound quality, mic performance, PC-350 comfort, bundled Audio Center software, good value
The ASUS Xonar Xense is a great package for any gamer who wants to get the most sound out of their PCs.The headphone amp is very good (maybe too good for the PC-350) but impressive still as a package.The mic quality, in the PC-350, is possibly the best sound mic I have ever used and sets the bar high in terms of quality.The only thing preventing me to give this package 5 stars is the lack of bass in the PC-350 (which is important to me).If you're a gamer and are OK with the lack of bass then there's it's a must buy for anyone using onboard sound.

Cons: price is a little bit high, but you get alot of value for the dollar, the headset alone is valued at 220. really pick this up if your gaming with a headset, because you dont know what your missing.

Pros: Amazing build quality on both the sound card and the head set.
amazing product. Tripple WOW WOW WOW.you never appreciate sound untill you hear anything from this duo.

Cons: Cost may make you think twice but if you need some new headphones, look around at other reviews that say the same as me. These are worth it.

Pros: Sound is awesome! Performance and a classy design!
Nice to get a bundled Headset and Soundcard. Such worth and performance for such a decent cost when you break down the actual cost on an individual base. I can finally have headphones cranked up without disturbing somone right next to me.The Sound card is noticable in performance as well, when compared to high end on-board sound controllers. Yes even ROG products which claim to hold some of the best features and add on's. Surround sound and Headphone quality is something to be noticed, and this product will make you realize what you have been missing if your satisfied with on-board.
