Everything I've read states the new X-Fi line of Creative cards produce some of the best headphone positioning availible in pc gaming sound cards today. You should have went with at the Xtreme music verison if you were manually interested in enhancing your gaming experience using headphones. The audigy4 was more a less a waste and hardly showed any benefit over the A2zs series in terms of sq or anything else otherwise.

The A4 does bring much higher sound quality over Audigy!
In terms of gaming, I dont think there is, but certainly when it comes to music and movies, due mainly to the higher quality DACs. If im not mistaken, the DACs used in the A4 are of higher quality than those used in the X-Fi's except for the Xtreme Elite Pro!

But as Juicez stated, if headphones and gaming is the main purpose for your card, then the Xtreme music would have been a better choice, better headphone support and higher EAX support.
