Description

Sound Blaster Z: The Complete Desktop Audio System: Sound Blaster Z

Part of the ultra high-performance Z-Series of Sound Blaster® PCI-Express sound cards, the Sound Blaster Z is an ideal all-around gaming and entertainment solution that incorporates all the hardware and software features of the Sound Blaster Zx card and comes with an external high-quality beam-forming dual-microphone array.

Crystal Voice: If you're not communicating you're not winning

When used with CrystalVoice™ the bundled Sound Blaster beam forming microphone creates an acoustic zone and suppresses noise outside it, enabling you to be heard by your teammates with amazing clarity even in noisy environments.

SBX Pro Studio: Live it, don't just hear it

The SBX Pro Studio suite of technologies immerse you in awe-inspiring audio so you can experience games in a 360-degree true-to-life sound stage over speakers or regular headphones, just as the developer intended.

116dB: Experience every detail

A signal to noise ratio or SNR of 116dB delivers > 99.99% pure audio, which is 34.4 times better than typical motherboard audio.

Sound Core3D: Power up

The quad-core Sound Core3D™ audio processor offloads gaming effects processing from your primary CPU, improving your overall PC performance.

Scout Mode: Find them before they find you

This proprietary technology allows you to hear your enemies from further away, giving you a distinct tactical advantage in combat.

Gear up for victory

There's no longer any need to unplug your speakers to connect a gaming headset. Sound Blaster Z features separate I/O so you can easily switch between hardware without having to unplug any gear.

TRUE Audio Expertise

With over 400 million Sound Blasters sold Creative are the digital audio standard.
