Perfect sound. You get what you pay for

Summary: Sounds Fantastic. But beware the default record settings enable smart volme management, crystalizers, etc... Need to turn those off before recording or you will end op with some really strange audio.
Summary: Aside from the usual quirks with using a dedicated sound card, if you spend some time resolving them you will find that this card is super quiet and is perfect if you're planning on transferring either analog or digital audio between your pc and other high-end components.
Awsome Card, Creative has never dropped the ball since they started

Summary: Kick ass Sound Card, but one warning...Make sure your motherboard's firmware can handle it. I had to upgrade BIOS and install latest chipset drivers to get the card to be recognized by windows 7.
Summary: The sound card currently using windows 7 x64 doesn't have issues, although I heard the problem are with windows 8-8.1 UEFI that the sound does not detected sometimes after reboot. The card it self is very good, the surround (SBX) headphones is immersive, using Berdynamic DT990 600ohm and they sound is very loud, window volume 50%.
My first one was a x-fi fatality champion series which was an awesome card. This one sounds just as good in ...

Summary: First off, I ordered this on Friday and I thought it would arrive on Monday. Sunday morning a U.S. Postal truck pulls up in front of my house with my sound card. I just about had a heart attack. Amazon Prime ROCKS!!! This is my second Sound Blaster card. My first one was a x-fi fatality champion series which was an awesome card. This one sounds just as good in my opinion. Maybe better. I'm very happy with it. Install was a snap.
Summary: I don't normally write reviews on products but after days of research looking for something that supports everything I need and want this card came up, not sure what all the 1-4 star reviews are about. Stop buying used or from shady dealers, buy new and you wont have problems. This card is amazing, just disable your old sound drivers and sound components through both bios and windows,(turn off computer) hookup the new card, then install and update it's drivers. DONE.
Summary: You can read my other review on the Sound Blaster Z and see that I was pretty disappointed with it. I had the following problems: - First of all, there was some red dust from the package caked all over the card and in the contacts and everything which can't be good... They could have at least put it in an anti-static bag. (The ZxR package had no red dust!
