Creative Sound Blaster G5 Software

Sound BlasterX G5

Amazing sound coming from this portable DAC/AMP sound card! Previously was using the Sound Blaster Z card, but my model was missing the 600Ohm headphone amp, so I decided to get this instead of another PCIe card, also, the Z card just wasn't able to run my Beyerdynamic DT 990 250Ohm headphones without having to adjust the volume higher, and even then it sounded like it was missing some details in the audio.

OUR SCORE

Overall, this has been working very well! The 7.1 virtual surround sounds much better than the Z card, with the virtual surround set to around 25/100.

OTTIMIZZA LA TUA ESPERIENZA AUDIO CON BLASTERX ACOUSTIC ENGINE LITE

Even with my speakers, the surround sounds better than the Z card.Had a couple of hiccups with the setup though.

Windows 10 was able to recognize the device as a sound card right away, but even after downloading the software from the Creative support site, it still wasn't outputing audio.

Doing a quick forum search, someone suggested going to Device Manager, have it check for Hardware Changes, then I manually went to the Sound drop-down and had Windows manually check for new drivers, which it found.

I then restarted the PC and it booted with audio! Can confirm it works with Windows 10 Home Premium. Very happy with this device! Amazing sound coming from this portable DAC/AMP sound card!

Creative themselves make much better devices purely for audio playback, and I’m not sure the G5 is built to replace any of those units. From a few quick tests, yes, there is a marketable difference between audio through my PC and audio through the Sound BlasterX unit. If that’s what you want, rest assured the quality of the audio will be top notch. I’m just not sure that is what Creative envisioned when they built this product.

Software

Like with all Creative products, Creative’s desktop software is easy to use. Once the drivers for your device have been installed, it is easy to setup presets for your devices to maximise your audio experience. If you are using the G5 on PC and are not taking advantage of the software Creative has for download, you are missing out on an even better audio experience. Although this software has the appearance of complication, it really is easy to understand!

Conclusion

You can’t go wrong with many of Creative’s products, and the Sound BlasterX G5 is no different. With a superior build, lots of connectivity options, and a fairly easy setup process, there isn’t a whole lot to dislike about this package. For only 149.99, you can easily enhance your audio experience across the board, whether you use this specifically for playing games, or for everything you do on your PC, Xbox One, or PS4.
