Asus Xonar U3 vs Steelseries USB Sound Card


Date: 08 Jul 2015   Posted By: Ravi     Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Accessories   

I'm currently using Lenovo Z570 laptop and am looking to experience better sound quality.
I'm basically an online gamer and play games like DOTA 2, CS:GO, Call of Duty, etc. I wanted to know which one amongst these two sound cards is better: Asus Xonar U3 USB Sound Card vs Steelseries USB Sound Card.

I basically use Steelseries V1 Headphones and rarely use any other speaker or headset.Please suggest the better one amongst these two or any other external USB Sound Card which can be better than these two. Thanks.

I reworded the part you quoted to try and get my thoughts across better.

The U3 does support optical 5.1 audio like the 1095, but it requires an adapter. Really the only difference I see is the 5.1 analog (4 wire) outputs. Of

If you want to hook a laptop up to a receiver, or an Astro Mixamp, then the 1095 and U3 are definitely your best choices.
