Default PC 350 Xense Edition?

The PC 350s that came with the Xonar Xense sound card appear to be for the Xense card ONLY. The combo comes with adapters that allow other head phones to be used with the Xense, but no adapters to allow plugging the 350s into any other sound card. While I'm not wild about the headphones ,I thought they would be a nice gift for someone else. I can't find the right sized adapters anywhere. Without them, the 350s are pretty much useless. Unless that is,someone here knows where to find adapters for these headphones. Anyone here? Help? Thanks.

Do a search for 6.3mm to 3.5mm adapter (aka 1/4 to 1/8th adapter).

Very easy to come by and will only cost a couple bucks. IIRC even ncix has or had them. :)

if i remember correctly those phones have higher than normal ohm's which will make it hard to use unless the person has a headphone amplifier or one built into their sound card, or they will sound really anemic

I don't think you can get any more anemic than unmodded PC350s

Actually they sound very anemic and muddy etc..without proper amplification.
If you have the PC350's you need an amplifer or you get poor sound quality...they are high impedance headphones.
