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 Kenneth Stuart I was very interested in reviewing the sound of this product's 600 ohm headphone jack, which seems targeted at audiophiles (since most of the earlier products only support 300 ohm headphones, and even then often with a shared, rather than dedicated jack). So, this time I was all set with a PC that uses full height PCI express cards (frankly not that easy to find in a world where laptops and tablets dominate, and PCs are often half-height products...
5.. no 4... no 3 STARS. Good SB, Mediocre headset, Bad wireless.

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.
Summary: When I first bought this headset I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, problems started to appear though. The headset wouldn't play any sound even though it was connected and the mic wouldn't pick my voice up. The Mic echos at times but this is expected from a wireless headset with a mic attached.
Summary: At first the headset feels incredible comfortable with the padded pieces however after a while they don't seem big enough and the inside of the ear cup rubs against your ears which is very uncomfortable, i had to return the product once due to the fact the microphone quality was less than adequate and on xbox live the microphone volume was dismal however a replacement sorted that out no problem.
Summary: I have to say I'm a little underwhelmed with the differences this brings to my PC, I can barely hear the improvements. Certainly this is not a device for music/movies. When attached to the PS3 with a apir of decent headphones I can see that it shines in this context. Listening to the effects in Bioshock were even more creepy than usual, it does allow for a more immersive experience. So. For gamers.
