Default Headphone-oriented sound cards from Asus and Auzentech

To drive demand, sound card makers have been forced to look elsewhere, turning their attention to improving fidelity. Good sound cards have traditionally offered superior playback quality to "free" integrated motherboard audio, and Asus and Auzentech currently make some of the best of the breed. Asus' relatively new Xonar sound cards offer phenomenally good playback quality, as have Auzentech's unique spins on Creative's X-Fi audio processor. Both camps already equip their cards with high-end electrical components, user-replaceable OPAMPs, and the ability to encode multi-channel digital bitstreams on the fly. So what's left to cover?

Headphones, it seems.

Thought it was a pretty good article, it was only a month ago I was debating which card to buy, then a fantastic deal came up on the Forte that I just couldn't resist so I pulled the trigger.

From person experience and other wen articles I think Essence wins out if your using the headphone for music, but if your mainly into gaming and using ventrilo then the Forte is the one for you.
