How so? The sound of the sound card and integrated one isn't going to make it sound any better or any different. The sound quality depends on how good your speakers or headphones are and also how your audio file is encoded (lossless vs lossy)... so If you have cheap headphones, it's obvious that it will not sound that good. I use a Bose On-Ear Headphones with Apple lossless audio format and 320 kbps MP3 and it does not sound any worse or any better if I were to use a sound card.... The only difference is that a external sound card would use less CPU usage, but even with a integrated sound card, it's not going to be a real big impact since the integrated one hardly use any CPU.
