Superb

Pirhan D., Newegg

  • Pros: I am never going back to onboard audio. A dedicated sound card like this beast is amazing. Everything sounds so much better and clear. Worth every penny.
  • Cons: The microphone that comes with it is a dud but no reason to take a star off.

  • Summary: This is a replacement of a on board sound card of my MB. The first card I purchased I returned and glad I did. This is a monster of a card. Great sound quality even on older speakers.
  • Pros: Great sound card for the price
  • Cons: None that I can't think of right now

A worthwhile addition to any computer.

  • Pros: Amazingly clear and full sound. Blows away any onboard sound solution easily. The card itself looks good too with its red LED.
  • Cons: Cable on included microphone could stand to be longer.

I love this soundcard!

Dmitry M., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Summary: I had to replace originally received card. Red light was on, but BIOS and OS could not detect it, I tried different solutions and already thought that this is my Asus P67 motherboard's issue.
  • Pros: I definitely hear the difference between on-board Realtek and Creative Z. Much better music and gaming sound quality! Buy this one and you would not regret! Absolutely compatible with Windows 8.1, no issues with drivers.
  • Cons: NOPE!

  • Pros: WOW ... ! This card is nothing short of amazing ... ! I can't believe how great it is. The bass is almost heart-stopped. The treble can be glass shattering.

Amazing combination with my headphones

Ben, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I'm not a huge audiophile, but I know quality when I hear it. This sound card replaced my (near six year) old X-Fi XtremeMusic sound card, also from Creative, and it's a huge improvement. If you're upgrading from onboard sound, then be prepared to have your mind blown.
  • Pros: Good Audio Quality

I thought the SB Audigy 2 ZS sounded great but when I installed the SB Z and had ...

David Siegel, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: I was very wary of the drivers for Creative cards for years, my old Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS was still working in Windows 7 but just barely. So for years I held on to my old card but I really wanted an upgrade for my Sennheiser HD 558's and a driver that had full and proper support in Windows 7.

Absolutely Amazing For High Impedance Headphones

thefuzz1542, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: Yes this is a very powerful sound card, yes it is crystal clear, and the options you get with it are plenty. But one of the many things this baby has that i love is the dedicated 600 Ohm headphone jack amp.
