I do not recommend this product.

  • Summary: This card is not for audiophiles. When playing songs abnormal noises, and some samples wheezing. I compares it with built in motherboard sound card and granny SoundBlaster Live! 5.1 (sb0100). Sounds like Live! but with noise and wheezing/rattling. If not that, then I would put the card five stars, now only three.

they need to produce a product that makes a true sound improvement

  • Summary: you have to download software from creative they want alot of information on you and they want to be attached to your computer to run software. the product works but even with all the supposed adjustments most people will use only a few. it has a gaming improve option. the surround effect could be better the sound quality could be better. more high end which would allow you to hear more separation.

Audible hiss with low impedance earphones

DubiousMike, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: Per the review posted by nwavguy.blogspot.com - the X-Fi go measures pretty well in multiple respects relative to its price point. However, the degree of audible hiss when used with low impedance headphones/iem's is considerably worse than the onboard sound in my laptop. I'm contemplating a return for this reason.

There is a reason Creative sound products have fallen so far

  • Summary: Having had many creative sound products in the past I was curious as to how this was going to go. Would they be better than when I last used them or would they throw enough crap at me to make me want to continue to use the on-board sound that has gotten good enough? When I got the package I opened it up and found the unit, a USB extension cable, driver / application disc, and minimal instruction / warranty pamphlets.

Works ok, but there are some sound problems

Philosopher23, Amazon

  • Summary: The audio jack on my netbook stopped working, so I was looking for a usb sound card as a quick, cheap fix. This one worked okay. I don't think there was any improvement in sound quality over my netbook's original sound card, but it was definitely louder (which was nice because the volume wasn't so great with headphones before). However, there were some problems with hissing, stuttering, and delayed sound.

  • Excerpt: Карта для геймеров, и всё этим сказано. Если хотите приличный звук, на эту вещь смотреть крайне не рекомендую.
  • Pros: Быстрое и лёгкое подключение, может работать без драйверов, простота программных настроек. Не глючат ни софт, ни дрова.
  • Cons: Звук, если оценивать именно звук, а не возможность его воспроизведения, ужасен. Очень плоская сцена, ни о какой проработке деталей тут говорить нельзя. Мне достался экземпляр, который очень сильно шумел, просто невозможно это слушать. Пробовал с ушами Шаннхайзер ХД 215 II

  • Excerpt: Начитался хвалебных отзывов и обзоров, решил купить и на собственном опыте протестить. Принёс домой, подключил к ноутбуку Sony (загрузились дрова очень быстро и минуты не прощло как можно слушать музыку) и кроме как увеличения громкости звука я не ощутил. Пробовал и на колонках Sven, и на наушниках Sennheiser HD 280 pro, но всё сводилось к одному — полному разочарованию. Отдать 2000 р за увеличение громкости на 25% я не был готов и поэтому на следующий день вернул.
  • Pros: Увеличение громкости музыки, компактность, быстрая загрузка дров, качество изготовления и внешний вид =)
  • Cons: Своих денег конечно же не стоит, все недостатки см.в комментариях
