Practice Test

Most gamers simply connect their gaming headset to the onboard sound chip of their mainboard. Even if the chips are mostly quite decent, you have the influences of motherboard and graphics card, which quickly creates a slight background noise and the sound quality decreases. This is exactly where Sharkoon comes in with the gaming DAC Pro S. The sound solution is taken out of the PC and the disturbing factors are removed.

We tested Sharkoon’s USB sound converter with multiple headsets and found that the sound experience actually improved significantly. No miracles can be expected from the Gaming DAC Pro S, because it always depends on the headphones or headset used, but the sound output of the mini sound card is flawless and clean. Compared to the onboard sound chip, the sound is more detailed and raised by a few levels overall. We were very satisfied with the result.
