Creative launches their first Sound Blaster with Super X-Fi

A high-resolution USB DAC with multi-channel audio playback, the Sound Blaster X3 (henceforth “X3” for brevity) is the latest incarnation of Creative’s Sound Blaster sound cards, and it brings Super X-Fi to the mix. With the X3, Creative’s bringing you the soundstage of a 7.1 surround sound speaker system through your headphones, and personalizes it just for you.

This is a high-resolution, 7.1 multi-channel USB DAC that supports up to 32-bit/192kHz playback, with a headphone amplifier that’s capable of driving studio-grade headphones. It can also deliver 7.1 virtualization on just two speakers, and has Dolby Digital Live encoding for connecting optically to external receivers for multi-channel speakers.

With the X3, you’ll also be able to take advantage of Creative’s surround virtualization technology, using the EQ presets to quickly adjust your audio experience. Switch between audio sources with just a turn of a knob and let the Audio Balance feature intelligently balance volumes so your focus is on the appropriate source.

The X3 supports PC, Mac, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.  There’s a Sound Blaster Command software for desktops, and a corresponding mobile app so you can take charge from your phone.

There’s also an upgrade promotion where Creative will give you 15% off all upcoming Sound Blaster products launched from now till the end of the year simply for trading in your old sound card.

The Sound Blaster X3 is available for S$189 on Creative’s website.
