Ben: If your friend wants 7.1 sound from a head­set, his best bet is to buy an Asus Strix 7.1 and by­pass the sound card – the sound qual­ity from that head­set’s USB DAC is great and the head­set pro­vides proper po­si­tional au­dio, rather than just vir­tual sur­round. I agree that it’s a shame so many head­sets don’t give you the op­tion to use your sound card’s out­puts though. For me, the main ben­e­fit of us­ing a dis­crete sound card is the DAC qual­ity, and there’s no way to pass that through USB.
