CAMPERAS says:

great video as always 🙂

MexicanSniperYT says:

Great review! Do you think this would be good paired with the HyperX Cloud gaming headset? Thanks!

Moloch says:

3:32 Those voice options actually sounded really good. The female one was only a tad bit robotic and it would probably take an unsuspecting person a few minutes to realize it was actually a dude. The kid one was a bit chipmunk like but could probably fool a few unsuspecting people.

Can u pls do a setup video?

umeng2002 says:

This is probably the most feature rich card creative has right now. It has a real audio DSP for all the effects in the control panel and legacy EAX and OpenAL, Dolby Digital decoding for Console surround support, 7.1 virtual speakers, and I think DD Live encoding. And a headphone amp.

Their Sound Blaster Z line is only 5.1, no DD decoding, but does have DTS in addition to DD Live.

Unlike most reviewers on YouTube I like and use SBX effects all the time.

does this support headsets with a usb as well? like the razer headsets?

So no settings for the mic ?
Like noise reduction, echo cancellation or anything like that ?
Apart the “funny” voice thing ?

Jonas Ziegler says:

Can I plugin my USB Mic and it will be have a better sound?

endrizo says:
