The bass is so much richer and the overall sound is so much more vibrant with this sound card, compared to the on-board sound card of my laptop's motherboard.
If you've got a decent set of headphones with a high impedance and need decent sound on the move, or even at a desk or whatever, this sound card is for you.
I purchased this through Amazon Warehouse deals and it was only £28, £12 off of the £40 RRP at the time I purchased.
Best part for PC users who struggle with using earphones which have an inbuilt mic designed for phones, this little beauty controls both the microphone and earphones using just the one 3.5mm jack, rather than requiring a separate jack for each.
Had 2 of these now though, they both lasted almost exactly 3 months each (with near constant usage most days), up to you if that's worth the money.
If you're serious about listening to music through cans on your laptop, this (or something like it) is damn-near essential.
There was also a very odd rumble sound produced when I tried to watch a film, this was not apparent when I used the normal front panel audio coming from my motherboard, which by the way is almost dead silent and it is a mid range 2012 motherboard with average audio quality, absolutely appalling for this product to be a dedicated unit for better sound and have worse audio quality than on board audio.
There are a few downloads you have to do to get the full experience with this device but even this is ridiculously complicated for no reason, you have to download a program for the X G5 which also works with the X G1 but it does not tell you this in the instructions and this same program cannot be found on the download page for the X G1, they just gives you the site for the downloads in the instructions.
After installing and uninstalling many programs for about an hour I finally got it working to a point where I could get the virtual 7.1 surround feature and the audio adjustments, well almost, the equalizer would constantly bring up a message with something along the lines of 'Cannot open read only files, this may be a sign of corrupted files' the program would then auto close and I had to reopen it every time. This got me worried so I checked over everything on my system and it was all fine, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the program at least five times and the problem persisted. The virtual surround is also terrible if you have it set to headphone mode, the center channels are heavily distorted and the only way to fix this is to switch it to the no headphone virtual 7.1 which did help but introduced yet another oddity which meant that the audio played louder in the right channel than the left.
Overall this product is disappointing, of course I may have had a dodgy one but with similar problems reported by others it's obvious that there are some factory flaws with these units.
