Have always been a fan of Creative's sound card line up since the days of Win 98. This card is no exception... it was easy to set up, and even gives my Creative 7.1 surround headphones a run for their money, compared to it's own 7.1 USB sound device. I have them paired with a sound bar; easily switches between the two with little to no recognizable sound differences at lower volumes.
I quickly installed it on the desktop,didnt use the (driver)...went to the webpage,and was able to download the Windows 10 software for the sound card,dont waste time using the driver,that comes with it....it would not configure the software for those with Windows 10.
Cheap, High quality, Better than my mobos audio interface
I wasn't it expecting it be this good, the sound quality is really amazing
-Works out-of-the-box on Windows and PS4 -Works with any 3.5mm jack device -Sounds better than my on-board sound card
It sounds like I am in the movie theater and it's not RGB.
I needed something better than the onboard audio. This was it. Installation of card and software was a breeze. Creative Labs had been my go to for sound. This unit delivers. We shall see long term as well.
-Amazing sound quality -Stylish on you desktop. -Scout mode is so nice in games like Fortnite, Apex.
- The part near the USB plug is rubber. Makes it easier to grip when plugging in/out. - Slim and lightweight
Sound Blaster does a very good job for the price
Plug & Play Great Sound Easy install
Quality sound,useful volume control knob for headphone output,16/24 bit 44.1,48 and 96khz sampling rate for great sound recording and playback(HD Audio), compact unit housing.
- Pretty much plug and play - Cheap - Corn Electronics got it here fast - Better than "Crab" audio
Very flush, so it fits nicely into a case without spilling over and blocking another slot. Black and gold is inconspicuous. Setup is very easy, had 5.1 sound going in like 10 minutes or so. Gaming support is excellent; I've found myself getting confused by noises coming from behind me that I didn't immediately realize were from the rear speakers.
- Easy to start with - Looks nice - Software bloat not as bad as older Creative products I have used - Color coded lights to indicate mode on the DAC case itself
