Buyer beware ! . 3rd party purchase

Penny Packer, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Too good to be True First of all, I bough this from a 3rd party not Amazon or the manufacturer, I paid $21.00 Unit arrived in a plastic bag, not in factory packaging ,no warranty or setup paperwork, did have installation cd. for the THX not SBX as advertised. This is clearly a counterfeit or a reprocessed unit. Worked for about 30 minutes then died.. The moral of the story, kiddies is you get what you pay for, let the buyer beware!

Lots of digital noise and hiss. Distorts on low frequencies.

Venus in Furs, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: It's just too good to be true, you can't find a decent DAC/Sound Card at this price. I was skeptical but ultimately proven correct when I plugged in my headphones and found that there was immense amounts of noise and hiss at reasonable volume. I was almost going to simply bare with it but then I noticed that lower sound frequencies would get the entire thing bent out of shape and distort the audio signal.

Died after 9 Months of Use...

D.S., Amazon
27 September 2013
  • Summary: There's a long list of gripes I have about this product, but I'll shorten it to the main three: 1) Constant software issues. After a few connects or disconnects, I'd get a message saying the "Creative SB AVStream Monitoring Utility has stopped working". 2) Static whenever sound levels were low. I tested the device with two different headphones, each of which worked fine without static when plugged into other devices. 3) It died after only 9 months of use.

  • Summary: This X-Fi Go does not work well with my PC(win7,64x). I feel disappointed and frustrated, because it has a little noisy sound in the back of my music.

Terrible build quality

Jonathan Pun, Amazon
22 December 2009
  • Summary: The initial sound quality was okay but there was always background static. Then, within minutes, it broke. The volume would consistently stay only at 100. Creative bundles fancy software and what not but that can't fix software.

static noise

  • Summary: The background static noise is very annoying. It become very obvious when a song fade out. While my internal audio works without any problem.

  • Excerpt: как написал выше покупать не советую...
  • Pros: Компактность и пожалуй качество сборки (приятная на ощупь)))
  • Cons: главный и убивающий этот девайс, который из-за этого ябы не взял даже за 2 рубля... это шумы которые слышны в наушниках-затычках, прямо как во встроенной звуковой карте.
