Why settle for basic, built-in sound? Your music and movies deserve Xtreme Fidelity. Add the Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ Xtreme Audio PCI Express® sound card to your PC and turn your downloaded music into your own personal concert. Watch DVDs or downloaded videos with full cinematic surround sound. Plus experience 3D audio and EAX effects in games.
Revitalize your downloaded music and movies
Restore the details and vibrance your music and movies lost during compression. X-Fi technology intelligently enhances the highs and lows so you'll hear it all-crisp cymbal crashes, wailing guitar solos, screeching tires and booming explosions.
Surround sound from your stereo music and movies
Expand your stereo music and movies into surround sound. Voices are centered in front of you. Ambient sound appears all around you... just like a live performance. Listen on a pair of desktop speakers or a full 5.1 speaker system.
Hear headphone surround that sounds like multichannel speakers
Slip on your headphones and X-Fi technology moves the sound away from your ears and into the space around you. You'll be surrounded by multiple virtual speakers and feel like you're sitting with your favorite band or in the best seat in the movie theater. Games sound better too with positional audio that's so accurate you can locate enemies by sound.
Enjoy realistic sound effects in games
Experience realistic sound effects and 3D surround that make you feel like you're actually in the game. Over 400 existing games use Creative EAX® sound effects to provide better gaming sound.
And if you're using Windows Vista™, Creative ALchemy restores surround sound for the same great gaming experience.
