I got my headphones about a week ago and they are amazing. I use to use Astro a50s and the difference is night and day. This is my first set of headphones that are audiophile grade and I am never going back. I am just running them off my onboard audio and I don't have a problem running them. I would definitely pick these up if you are considering them.
Astro a50s pale in comparison to the k7xx, I only use the a50s with my PS4. Not so sure about onboard audio, I hooked my k7xx up to a speaker amp with headphone jack using mobo sound and it sucked hard. I just brought my Fiio E10 home from the office and they sound good. On my gaming computer I push the k7xx with a Sound Blaster Z card and they sound great.
Tip for gaming use with a modmic: buy "1/4" PET Expandable Braided Sleeving- 10ft - Black" from Amazon or your favorite online store and use it to couple the modmic and stock k7xx cables for cleanliness, you can use adhesive shrink tubing for the end closest to the headphones.
If you pair the cables together you can buy an extra mini XLR to 3.5mm cable for when you use the k7xx (no modmic) on a different computer / listening station which is what I'm using as I type this comment.
