The Sound Blaster Audigy SE sound card is designed to enhance your PC music, movie, and gaming experience at an affordable price. An easy upgrade for your desktop's integrated sound, the card's audio processor with Creative's CMSS technology is able to remix your stereo audio into surround sound—even through stereo headphones.

EAX Advanced HD 3.0 further improves game audio tracks providing a more immersive experience. The bundled Creative MediaSource software can be used for creating MP3s, managing a music collection, adding effects and burning custom CD compilations.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to setup, works well.

Pros: Easy setup!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Obviously a bit basic as is the point of this. Step up from onboard.

Bought this trying to fix a windows 10 sounds issue. Where it would see all devices and be installed but say no audio. Adding in a new card did not help, so a total reinstall of windows fixed this issue. Still do not know what the issue was but that fixed it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price

Pros: Plug and play was super fast. Drivers for Windows 7 64bit (which I downloaded) were a snap.

Sound is great for the price you are paying. It works and does everything I wanted it to do.

Cons: None that I've been able to find so far. Still on first day of using it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound card for older computers with only PCI slots!

Pros: Great sound card for older computers that only have PCI slots! Can't be used in PCI Express slots obviously! Works for windows xp,vista,7 and 8 not sure about 8.1!

Cons: DO NOT USE driver cd if installing on any computer running anything newer then windows vista! Get the drivers from creatives website instead!

Other Thoughts: N/A

4 out of 5 eggsVery good.

Pros: Nice and easy to use, would recommend to anyone looking for a simple sound card.

Cons: Drivers were a small pain to install, and the drivers that come in the CD are outdated, so be aware.

5 out of 5 eggsNoticeable Difference

Pros: Inexpensive, better than on board audio. The difference is very noticeable using a headset or earphones.

Cons: Bloatware (but not really)

Other Thoughts: This was my first audio card purchase and after 3 years of using it in my computer, I'm able to notice the difference between it and a computer with stock on board audio. For this price, it's unbeatable. The only con I have for it is that it comes with so many extra programs and things, but if you're really into audio manipulation, then it's perfect for you.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Sound Blaster

Pros: Bang for your buck is hard surpassed by this puppy. Destroys my 2014 onboard mobo sound card; I'm referring to sound quality here. I threw in some lossless audio files and I couldn't believe the sound I was missing before which was indiscernible before. It should be noted that I am not an audiophile and this won't compare to something in the $200 range. This will give you a noticeable, positive difference when compared to your onboard sound and the price is completely worth it.

Cons: Beware this does NOT have Intel HD, which means it won't connect to your front audio jacks without some extending cables or an appropriate adaptor, both of which can be found online. Spend a few extra bucks if that's a worry or a hassle.

Other Thoughts: Sound Blaster quality. Great additional software. Installs on Win 7 x64 no problems. Do yourself a favor and install drivers and software from manufacturer's website, as it is still updating drivers, despite the fact this card is coming up on 10 years old.

1 out of 5 eggsWin 7 64bit won't boot with this card installed

Pros: In theory, this card supports 5.1 & 7.1 surround systems, with some pretty nifty Creative Console software,

Cons: Supplied drivers don't work on windows 7 64bit, official drivers from creative labs don't seem to work either, as computer won't boot into windows after installation.

Drivers install, albeit very, very, slowly. Much slower than I was expecting. I'm not used to them taking over 10 minutes these days.

Other Thoughts: Sigh. I was really looking forward to surround sound from this card. And the creative console sounded pretty neat. I had hopes that buying a familiar brand name, would result in better results. I guess I just should have bought the generic startech or rosewill one.

4 out of 5 eggsSound Blast from the past!

Pros: Sounds good. Works with windows 8.1, they keep their drivers updated!

Cons: No way to connect to modern front audio jacks! It has the proprietary Sound Blaster connector that I have not seen in probably 15 years! I had to do what I did 15 years ago and run audio extensions up to the front so when I need my headset I have to unplug the speakers and plug in my phones and mic.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because my motherboard audio was going out and the price was great and it's a Sound Blaster! I get this thing and what to my wondering eyes should appear... the old Sound Blaster proprietary front panel connector. I laughed out loud, went down memory lane, and plugged the thing in. I couldn't find any 3 Doors Down to test this thing... I felt kind of weird using Miley Cyrus to test it out because the girl was like 12 years old when I last saw a card like this.
