Better options.

  • Summary: Best thing is the ability to switch between headphones or speakers by pushing button on front rather than unplugging/plugging. Front headphone jack stopped working after 4 months, but OK, don't like cords dangling on front of computer. Sound quality is good for gaming, but definitely not for the audiophile.

  • Summary: Unfortunately I need a card that is good for playing and recording guitar and this does not cut it in that dept.

I only recommend the sound card itself

  • Summary: The beam Mic is cool and the sound card itself is wonderful just that the front panel sucks cause there is always static coming from it when in use plus the program to use with this sound card in my opinion sucks and doesn't do this system any justice.

Not impressed for the price

  • Summary: I got this sound card specifically for two main reasons. Optical in/out and a physical headphone amp with front volume knob. First of all, the software that runs this card is awful. It is very difficult to setup the way you want it, and once you do have it right, restarting the computer often changes your profiles around. Even saving a settings profile and reloading it doesn't bring back you settings exactly.

Ok card, but you should wait for better one!

  • Summary: By Randomness I have purchased this card to replace the on-board audio on my motherboard, which has a lower SnR DACs and doesn't have features such as virtual surround modes for headphones. The installation of this card was extremely painless - I just disabled the on-board sound in motherboard's BIOS, inserted this card into the available PCIe slot (it was the "long" PCIe 8x slot, but it doesn't matter, it will work in any PCIe slots), then downloaded the latest drivers...

  • Summary: By THEMIGHTYQ It sounds good. Very easy to install. It has the optical in and out that I wanted. Apparently it is more for gamers, which I don't do. I cannot judge that aspect of the sound card. It's good for music but the are likely better choices for audiophiles or sound cards that come with more software for music if that is what you are looking for.

  • Summary: By drsuna "drsuna" Good sound quality. No eax. Lag with microphone. There is about 0.5 seconds lag between you speaking and sound from speaker make this useless for karaoke. I am disappointed with creative driver and software package. Audigy with h windows xp was the gold standard.

  • Summary: By Engr. Jay Mendoza This product is actually a bundle of [Recon3d Sound Blaster] and [Tactic3D Omega Headset]. I did ask a lot from Creative before buying this particular "bundle". Here are the key differences: Bundle o Includes a proprietary wireless transceiver that plugs DIRECTLY to a proprietary slot on the [Recon3d Sound Blaster]. Separately o Includes a stand for the headset. o Includes a USB (non-Recon3D sound quality) transceiver.

Not worth the price

Conor Campbell, Amazon

  • Summary: I don't feel these headphones are worth £135 I got them on the Black Friday sale and they only cost me £80 or £90. They are ok, but I have a pair of Turtle beach headphones that are much cheaper and just as decent. The mic is very very sensitive but very clear. The sound is also pretty good, there is no hiss that is typical with wireless headphones which is excellent.
