Creative Announces The All-Rounder Sound Card: Sound Blaster X4
Creative today announced the launch of the Sound Blaster X4, the upgraded successor to the Sound Blaster X3 which sports nifty new smart features and better connectivity. With the new SmartComms Kit (for Windows) offering auto-mute and two-way noise cancellation, the Sound Blaster X4 makes online communication easy and fuss-free for users working from home. The Creative tSound Blaster X4 comes with a plethora of connectivity options and convenient controls for a hassle-free set-up right out of the box, making it the ideal all-in-one audio upgrade for PC, Mac, PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch users. Sound Blaster X4 offers the ultimate audio upgrade with greater connectivity, hassle-free controls and smarter features all packed into one compact form factor.
The Sound Blaster X4 features the game-changing Super X-Fi technology. It recreates the soundstage of a premium multi-speaker surround system in headphones, and personalizes it for a natural listening experience.
With the all-new SmartComms Kit, the Sound Blaster X4 serves as a versatile sound card that can offer users a simpler yet smarter way to communicate online. The VoiceDetect Feature allows users to speak freely without worrying about the mute button as the mute status switches based on voice detection — the microphone gets unmuted instantly when the user’s voice is detected and is muted automatically when no further speech is detected. There is no need to meddle with any buttons, and users can stay focus on the conversations without any disruption.
The two-way noise cancellation feature works to reduce unwanted static background noises during online calls at both ends — NoiseClean-in for incoming audio and NoiseClean-out for outgoing audio — to deliver crystal-clear communication.
Fitted with a newly added optical/line-in port, users have a more comprehensive range of options to connect the Sound Blaster X4 to multiple audio devices, from external microphones and headsets to PC, Mac, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and even the multi-channel speaker systems to instantly upgrade the audio quality and transform one’s desktop setup into an one-in-all audio hub.
The Sound Blaster X4 offers users hassle-free controls with a sleek turn knob design and an elevated look and feel compared to its predecessor. It is also fitted with dedicated buttons for Audio Balance, Audio Mode selection, Super X-Fi mode, as well as a speaker (Line-out) and headphones switch button to make it easier to toggle between devices. For Windows users, the Sound Blaster X4 features Dolby Digital Live encoding to transform audio content to this acclaimed multi-channel surround sound standard in real-time.
The Sound Blaster X4 comes decked out with customizable EQ modes —Music, Movies, and Footsteps Enhancer—each of them specially tuned to enhance audio for different types of content to deliver the optimal audio experience. With excellent audio performance, greater connectivity options, and smarter features, the Sound Blaster X4 is the perfect all-rounder sound card to work, learn and play from home with. Sound Blaster X4 is attractively priced at S$219 and is available at Creative.com.
