Maybe they changed the design. My ears fit inside of the headphones, with the cushioning material surrounding my ear.

I have this MOBO: so maybe no sound card is necessary?
I'm using my motherboads sound card. The 800 (the one I linked) uses a microphone and headphone plug, the 1000 model uses USB which provides power and has a sound card built in.
Your motherboad has a built in sound card (Realtek ALC892) and can run just about any headset.
I ordered a sound cad recently, ASUS Xonar DG
to see if it will make a noticeable difference with sound. When I get it I will post my findings, or post a review.
