I absolutely love this card and the sound it produces when paired with my Sennheiser's. It is far beyond anything else I've ever owned, including my expensive hi-fi setup. The range of customisability and software functionality allows a very high level of control over card. I also noticed a huge difference in perception of positional surround sound in games such as Battlefield. I would recommend this to anybody looking to take the listening experience on their computer to a new level of enjoyment.

Instantly noticed the difference in sound quality in both my headphones and speaker systems
Not really a bad point but visually the card could look better but that's not it's purpose

Sound is incredible for the money. The built-in amp makes it perfect hard-to-drive headphones.
Drivers can be a bit troublesome, but the third-party 'Uni Xonar' drivers work great and solve some problems that Asus haven't bothered sorting out.
