Very Goo


Very well made, very well constructed and the extra features are pretty awesome

Barely considered a con, but size. It may not be able to fit another component to a neighboring PCI port

Possibly good


Waiting to see what is sounds like with hd650.

The discounted price, and possibly good quality

This is the best in the market you can buy

I installed it and my computer recognized it at first and installed the software however when i try to open and run the software it said it couldn't fine a supported audio device.... so i contacted Creative...... never before have i waited so long for...

You get what you pay for. I use to have a sound blaster audigy which I loved, but the drivers and software sucked for Windows 7/8. I ended up dropping it and went with the onboard sound for my x79 ud7 gigabyte board. This card is incredible. I...

Creative Labs - Awesome sound quality. Several output configurations, including optical out. Unidirectional microphone with speaker output and separate volume control. Doesn't require additional power for the PSU like audigy did

Price. Microphone is not the best, but it could be due to where I have the microphone placed

For gamers and bass-lovers, not for audiophiles


I hope they make updated drivers or something to neutralize all the warmth and color they put into the sound. Being a creative fan for over 10 years, I'm really disappointed and feel so let down. I can't believe I'm going to throw out their card and go...

I bought this card for better music ; My plan was to replace my old X-Fi Titanium NON-HD because it had this annoying DPC latency issue where the sound was cracking/popping and cutting out every 30 minutes ; I received this card and it was sexy, looked...

THE MUSIC QUALITY SUCKS ; I use the word "suck" as a relative term. It was nowhere near as crisp and clear and accurate and beautiful as my 6-year old Titanium card. The ZXR sounded so muddy, too echo-ey, too much bass, too much noise in the mids, and...

Great upgrade


This is a message for all of those who said the card was not fit for multimedia. Either customize the equalizer to your liking or stop overboosting the bass. It does do multimedia and works more than fine. Now, for those that designed the card, add a...

Easy to install in the case. Plugging everyhthing you want is easy. This card goes well with the Logitec Z906 5.1 surround sound system. Once the equalizer is customized, it runs multimedia as you want it to ; Way better than onboard audio

1- It produces red light, if we had a choice, I would have prefered blue. That's minus a quarter of an egg ; 2-The wire to plug the cards together needs to be kind of twisted. Would have been simpler to line up the plugs and provide a wire that does...

Boom i got yo' bass!!!


124db might be way too loud for some people. Either upgrade your speakers, or you may need to place your speakers further away from you pc desk or you will turn . For the bass lovers this card is your dream. Also you might be interested in...

I have always labeled Creative for being the Sound Experts, and let me tell you they are. They are the Masters in creating sound. What Creative built on this ZXR was an amp. Good Lord, you will hear the boom!! pow!! crash!! zoom!! etc. effects. In...

This sound card is Not for the Audiophile. If you are using this card as an All in one card, and you love recording or listening to music, this is not your card. The Xfi Titanium would be your choice. There are many software features missing. Honestly...

I must have got a good card...


I pair this card with Sennheiser HD650 cans, I wouldn't have it any other way. I also have the option to record some insane audio if I ever choose to. (I won't, but I can). When I'm alone I have a pair of gigaworks 2.1 speakers I blast. It sounds...

I bought this card around 6 months or so ago. I see all of these issues people seem to have now and I haven't had any of these software, code 10, or quality issues ; I went from an excellent xonar essence stx with aftermarket OPAMPS (started to...

The price decided to plummet 100$ out of nowhere ; Also keep in mind; this card runs very hot even when not being used, this is what is probably attributing to others having short life spans of these cards. Sometimes you have to move some air to keep...

Update on my old review


So on my previous review i thought my card died after 1 month of in use. I put the sound card in another computer and it worked fine, it appears the slot on my motherboard fried and was not feeding the card with enough power. I contacted their customer...

Sounds awesome ; see my previous review ; Creative's customer service despite all the negative feedback was actually helpful

none so far

best card out there!


Great sound! easy setup Tons of Options .. i connected the rca out cables to my onkyo receiver in another room .. so when company comes over i can blast my music through my home stereo

wish there was a way to change voices ex.. male to female ; in itunes or any other music program not just microphone .. my onboard sound card lets me do that
