Creative Technology will be showcasing its latest range of audio solutions, including the Sound Blaster X3 and the SXFI THEATER, at the upcoming IFA 2019.
The first Sound Blaster 1.0 sound card appeared in 1989, and transformed PC audio. Since then, over 400 million Sound Blasters have been sold.
The latest Sound Blaster X3 supports the Super X-Fi technology, a first for Sound Blasters. Super X-Fi recreates the soundstage of a surround speaker system in headphones, and personalizes it for a natural listening experience.
Besides having Super X-Fi technology built in, the external sound card is a high-resolution, 7.1 multi-channel USB DAC, offering 32-bit / 192 kHz playback, and features a headphone amplifier capable of driving studio-grade headphones. It is also featuring Dolby Digital Live encoding for connecting optically to external receivers for multi-channel audio on speakers.
Sound Blaster X3 is offering cross-platform compatibility for PC, Mac, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. It is supported by the new Sound Blaster Command software for desktops, and a corresponding mobile app to save console users the hassle of switching to desktops for control and customization.
Another standout highlight is Creative SXFI THEATER wireless headphones. It is featuring the audio realism of Creative's Super X-Fi headphone holography. What makes it stand out even more is its proprietary 2.4 GHz digital wireless audio transmission, with five times less latency than a Bluetooth transmission. It clocks up to 30 hours of battery life, which is amongst the best for wireless headphones. Topping it off with a gaming microphone engineered for clear communications, SXFI THEATER checks all the boxes for movie and gaming enjoyment on PC, Mac, PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
Creative's booth at IFA will feature a theaterette, specially constructed for demo sessions with SXFI THEATER headphones.
