I use the Sennheiser HD 201 headphones which are pretty good, but it has low volume. To get the best quality from my headphones, I used to plug in the headphones directly to the PC's audio port. But the volume was always too low for me. Now I plug it into speakers which are plugged into the PC so I can adjust the volume, buut the sound quality is terrible cause the speakers suck. So I was wondering, if I buy a sound card. Will there be an increase in volume and quality? Or is there another solution? I'm pretty much suffering here by not listening to music properly. ;-; EDIT: Tried using Loudness Equalization. It really increases the system volume even higher. But weirdly decreases music played on either VLC Media Player or WMP, and the sound increases when Loudness Equalization is turned off.
