How do you enhance audio fidelity from a pair of headphones?
Harness the power of audio processing right on your headset! Thanks to the built-in SB-Axx1™ audio processor of the Sound Blaster EVO ZxR headset, you get vastly improved audio delivered to your ears in real-time. Be amazed by what you hear, even if it's from the most compressed sources.

The highest fidelity in audio

Massively powerful

Hear it, just the way you like it

Shut out that noise

Get ready to unleash the full power and clarity of your audio.

Sound Blaster EVO ZxR's FullSpectrum™ 50mm audio drivers are capable of reproducing the full audible range of the audio spectrum, so you won't miss a beat.

Like your music punchy? More bass? Or want more immersive surround effects from your movies?

Make these real-time playback adjustments by simply changing your audio settings with the Sound Blaster Central app, and then hear your audio come to life.

The headset's ear cups cover your ears entirely, effectively shutting out external noise, while the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature detects and cancels out the ambient noise electronically.

Keep talking

Want to hear someone without taking off your headset? Simply press the TalkThrough button and continue conversing.

High-fidelity audio streaming

With the headset supporting aptX® and AAC technologies, you're assured that the audio content transmitted over Bluetooth® is crystal clear.

Enjoy your headset even more!

With the Sound Blaster EVO ZxR, you can even experience cinematic, virtual 7.1 surround sound when you connect the headset to your PC or Mac!

Clarity in voice communications

Communicate with confidence and be understood. The integrated dual beamforming microphones work in tandem with the headset's advanced CrystalVoice™ technologies to make sure you're always heard clearly.

Ambient noise and echoes picked up by the microphones are reduced drastically. Likewise, unwanted noise from incoming calls is also being eliminated. CrystalVoice creates an acoustic zone that picks up only your voice and nothing else, so you can still be heard with amazing clarity in noisy environments.

HD Voice
 

Enjoy improved audio clarity for your voice calls through your mobile phone or VoIP service as Sound Blaster EVO ZxR supports wideband Bluetooth technology, which enables more details of the voice data to be transmitted.

* HD Voice functionality is dependent on the mobile device and service operator.

Voice commands, now more accurate!

Remember the occasions when you tried in vain to instruct some voice-activated application to perform a task? With high-quality voice pickup and all the voice technologies packed into your headset, your commands can be transmitted accurately all the time.

Love to chat?
 

Use Sound Blaster EVO ZxR as a VoIP headset while connected to your PC or Mac®.

Absolute Ease And Convenience

Tap and play, easy!

Simply tap your Near Field Communications (NFC)-enabled device on the headset for easy, one-touch Bluetooth pairing.

Sound Blaster EVO ZxR supports up to two Bluetooth connections simultaneously, which is great if you're watching a movie on your tablet but wish to instantly switch to answer a call from another paired smart device

Connect in more ways than one

Besides Bluetooth pairing via NFC or the conventional way, you can also connect the headset to your PC or entertainment devices using the USB 2.0 connection, or the analog 3.5mm jack.

Use the included analog cable for direct connection to your portable media player, or swap it with your own cable of a different length.

Personalise audio to your liking

Enjoy your music wherever you go as the built-in rechargeable battery has enough power for up to eight hours of continuous wireless audio playback.

Low on power? Conveniently charge the headset via USB and continue to enjoy high-quality audio while doing so.

Designed for easy storage, for your convenience

For easy storage and maximum portability, the headset folds flat and can be kept in the handy carrying case.

    The separate SBX profiles really work and the qualities that the audio processing promises really shine through. For gaming, we played Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 on the PS4 and the results are fantastic. The gunfire produces a satisfying thud and the wide soundstage is perfect for the more frenzied periods of gameplay.

    The Creative EVO ZxR looks sexy, feels sexy and gives luxuriantly rich bass and comfort that can be used in any situation. The ANC is surprisingly effective and the talk-through feature, genius. Gold all over.
