Bunch of Frills


I'm sure i'll get excuses as to mic placement and things of that nature but with the all of these supposed noise reduction features along with the rep clearly stating that music can be playing from speakers without the mic picking it up, makes it...

Sound quality as expected ; Wasn't difficult to install the drivers despite what other's said about difficulty of driver installation

Part of the reason I chose those this SC was because their ACM and the fact that the mic was connected to that. Their focus cone was not at all working how it was supposed to ; Creative representative clearly stated that music can be "blaring" from...

I really liked this card when I first got it, but it's very flaky now, and the software isn't impressive.

Lot of connectors, nice mic on the external controller, good movement for volume control

Weird artifacts from the card when using now, the integrated sound card sounds much better

price was a bit high but can notice the difference from on board audio.

compulsively got sound blaster zxr and glade i did. it sounds great, especially with a good pare of head phones

drivers would seem like it crashed when updating but if you wait i does work just really inconvenient

Excellent Hardware Bad Software


The card is great and sound is amazing (when it works). If you plan to use digital out to connect a device your run into a lot of problem with the device DBPro "vanishing" and have to constantly reboot tell it returns. There is still no driver fix to...

Great Hardware ; High Quality Hardware ; 1/4 inch jack's and external unit ; Good Quality parts

Horrible software which causes the excellent hardware not to work

Awesome Sound Card!


I purchased this sound card along with 780 Ti, Corsair Platinum RAM, Crucial 500GB SSD, and an I5 3570K. Sometimes my PC freeze randomly, I don't know if it's because of the sound card or something else. It doesn't happen very often though so it's not...

Amazing surround sound ; Feels high build quality ; Good sound quality ; Very stable software

None (Maybe! see other thoughts)

Worth it


Excellent sound card. Install was very easy and straight forward. Works like a champion and the sound quality is great when paired with a good set of headphones

better than expected


They power my Beyer DT990 Premium 600ohm's just fine. Sound beautiful. I ordered Schiit Asgard 2 and ended up returning it because this alone sounded better to me. Powers my bass's deeply and loudly in my DT990's. Surprised me

none, because it has native 5.1 outputs AND it has the premium headphone jack, plus a digital SPDIF out so you can also connect it to surround that way. Premium audiophile headphone support plus native pc surround setup, there are no cons

Creative ZXR (70SB151000000)


Does the thing that looks like second processor chip actually serve a purpose, or is it just a decorative design feature? After many years of avoiding Sound Blaster because of their repeated failures to make cards compatible with the latest operating...

The design of this thing is really striking, if maybe a little superfluous ; The control panel software is pretty easy to navigate and understand ; Easy to install. I was able to get it into my HAF-X case without any power cables passing anywhere near...

Somehow, Firefox seems to do something that causes the sound card to start sending pops and crackles to the speakers. Their frequency escalates and will not stop until I either shut down entirely, reboot, or put the system to sleep and wake it back up....

Software causes blue screen crashes


I worked with Creative's tech support via email, and tried everything they suggested with no success. I haven't heard from them in 5 days now, so I guess they gave up & didn't bother to tell me. Time to RMA it and buy the competing ASUS product from...

Produces basic sound from the primary output using Windows 7 default drivers

Attempting to install the driver/software package causes a blue screen crash

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
