The Xense is another impressive sibling to the Xonar family, well worthy of being a new member in ASUS' dominant line-up.
Expanding on the high-quality manufacturing process and hand chosen components of the Essence, the Xense package from ASUS forms a timely partnership with audio heavy hitters, Sennheiser. The result is a best of both worlds realization that has been the culmination of many months and over a thousand different combinations of equipment.
I truly believe this latest incarnation of the Xonar series to be the most commanding to date, with real world performance rivaling a thousand dollar hi-fi system. The choice of components and their implementation onto a first class PCB design that utilizes a custom designed EMI shield to further protect and enhance the signal is just part of the reason Xonar is cementing itself as the only choice for the discerning PC based audiophile.
Software support has always been considered in my opinion to be more than adequate with the Xonar products and that will obviously continue with the Xense. Gaming support is catered to fully with EAX 5.0 and for movie buffs there is software support for Dolby Headphone.
So, is the Xense worth the upgrade if you're already an owner of a Xonar? The short answer is yes, it is. And if you are in need of some real hi-fi headphones, then even more so. The bottom line is, if you want the best audio at the moment on your PC and have the resources free to spend on it, then you cannot do any better than the Xense.
So, without further discussion and for all of these many reasons listed today, we once again dig deep into our bag of tricks to produce another Tweaktown Editors Choice Award for ASUS' bulging trophy cabinet.
