The Sound Blaster X-Fi sound card delivers faster audio performance and intense, realistic sound in all your games. Headphone surround sound is better too—so good, you'll swear you're listening to multichannel speakers—and your games will sound richer as you hear all of the crisp, clear highs and bone-crushing lows you've been missing. It's Sound Blaster on steroids!
