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


Consumer review by:

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

Possibly good


Waiting to see what is sounds like with hd650.

The discounted price, and possibly good quality

Not here yet

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...
