The Sound BlasterX G5 is an external sound card and amplifier built with gamers in mind


While it looks (and works) a lot like the Sound Blaster E5, the Sound BlasterX G5 is specifically catered to gamers, with a built-in SB-Axx1 multicore chipset for hardware accelerated SBX Pro Studio enhanced audio. The Sound BlasterX G5 supports multichannel content, being able to deliver true 7.1 audio for ultra-realistic surround sound, and is able to convert even basic stereo into 3D positional surround sound on your headset.

Built with only the best components, the Sound BlasterX G5 is also a 24-bit/96kHz, 120dB USB DAC and headphone amplifier, with 2.2 ohm output impedance to support even the most sensitive in-ear monitors and studio grade headphones up to 600 ohms.

The Sound Blaster X G5 works with Creative's BlasterX Acoustic Engine to minimize distractions. 


The Sound BlasterX G5 works perfectly with Creative’s new BlasterX Acoustic Engine software for PC, a dedicated program that lets you customize your audio profile to fit the specific game you’re playing. It’s designed to intelligently decrease distractions while enhancing essential audio details, giving you an added advantage. 

While gaming, the illuminated volume knob and dedicated SBX and Scout mode options allow for quick volume and audio adjustments so you focus can stay squarely on the playing field. There’s even an additional USB port for easy connection to added peripherals like mice or keyboards!

The Sound BlasterX G5 will be available at the online store at creative.com from November 2015 for S$219.
