If yours isn't like that then bonus for you, go for new cans, if not then a new exspensive set of phones will let you hear all of that garbage more easily. I don't know what your equipment sounds like to you or where your priorities lie so you need to answer that. Not trying to sound like a jerk, I'm just sayin'....
Trust me Ryan, you don't come across like a jerk. Thanks for the advice. I've located an Auzentech Prelude on RFD and I offered the guy $130...if it sticks I think I've got a hell of a sound card for the money.

IF the improvement isn't what I'm looking for, then I'll start auditioning new cans...
