Creative Sound Blaster G6

OVERVIEW

Upgrade your game! An amazing upgrade over our well-received Sound BlasterX G5, the Sound BlasterX G6 immediately improves your audio, giving you a much more enjoyable experience compared to what you get from default motherboard audio or any other USB Gaming DAC in the market.

The USB sound card works with PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, and combines a virtual 7.1 32-bit / 384 kHz, 130 dB USB Digital Audio Converter (DAC) with our awesome Xamp discrete headphone amplifier for incredibly detailed audio. It also boasts Dolby Digital decoding, virtual 7.1 surround sound, game-voice volume balancing, Scout Mode, and Sound Blaster's 30 year legacy of impressive sound enhancement technologies.

All this comes together to make the Sound BlasterX G6 an incredible audio upgrade for both gamers and music and audio enthusiasts.

Old Games, New Life

The Sound BlasterX G6 has the best audio performance of any USB sound card or gaming DAC in the market. When paired with a good headset, the Sound BlasterX G6 brings games alive, delivering new audio details even from games you thought you knew inside out. The more audio you hear, the more fun you'll have. You may just win a little more too.

BALANCE YOUR AUDIO WITH GAMEVOICE MIX

GameVoice Mix* is now available for PlayStation® 4 users on the G6! This feature gives you game audio / chat balance capabilities so that you can find the perfect balance with ease and be focused on the game!

Without having to pause or leave your game's screen, you can seamlessly adjust your game's audio and teammates' chat volume directly on the G6 via the volume control knob. Teammates getting too rowdy on the other end? Control how loud you want them to be by switching between the volume levels of their chat and the game's audio level.

All it takes is a one-time setup, and this feature is always ready when you need it.

*GameVoice Mix is available on PS4™, PS4 Pro and PS4 Slim only, via optical cable connection.

Works on Consoles and PC

It doesn't matter which camp you're in - PC or console - we've got you covered. The Sound BlasterX G6 features a wide array of connectivity options - optical, USB, and even line-in - which means your gaming audio will be instantly improved whether you're on PC, PS4, Xbox, or even a Nintendo Switch.

Impressive Surround Sound and Accurate Positioning

With support for Dolby Digital decoding* and 7.1 virtual surround sound, the Sound BlasterX G6 reproduces your opponents' footsteps, gunshots, and other audio cues with remarkable accuracy.
PS: Environments and music sound great too!

*Dolby Digital decoding is available via optical connection.

Supports Scout Mode

Activate Scout Mode to give yourself a distinct tactical advantage! This tried and tested technology enhances important in-game audio cues - such as footsteps and weapon switching sounds - allowing you to quickly and accurately pinpoint your opponents' location before they pinpoint yours!

Incredible Processing

Sound Blaster has been in the audio processing game for 30 years. All our USB sound cards provide compelling surround sound, clean up vocals, and enhance audio cues to give a competitive advantage in games! The best part: you get to control every bit of it from the Sound Blaster Connect software.

Convenient Controls

The Sound BlasterX G6 is designed to make things easy. The single audio wheel controls both the gameplay audio and your mic volume for easy balancing. Buttons on the side control processing profiles and Scout Mode, and switching between headphones and speakers is easy via the Sound Blaster Connect software.

Nothing ruins an important gameplay more than disruptive team communication due to background noise. G6 comes with a Noise Reduction feature which reduces noise interruption-a desktop fan blowing directly towards your microphone, loud surrounding traffic, or even the renovation works upstairs—so your team can hear you better. For clearer comms on your PS4 or Nintendo Switch, simply activate Noise Reduction in sidetone mode, and double press on the volume knob to toggle between switching on and off.

Serious Sound Performance

We're not joking about our sound quality. The Sound BlasterX G6 was designed for the most discerning gamers and built with components that would impress even audiophiles.

Xamp Discrete Headphone Bi-amp

The jewel in the Sound BlasterX G6's proverbial crown is our custom-designed Xamp discrete headphone bi-amp. As opposed to single amplification found in other gaming DAC amps, Xamp amplifies both audio channels individually. You'll enjoy more detailed audio on highs, mids, and bass.

Xamp will drive any gaming headset excellently, but it goes even further than that. The ultra-low 1Ω output impedance perfectly drives performance-grade sensitive 16Ω in-ear monitors all the way to studio-grade 600Ω headphones.

Audiophile-Grade Specifications

The specifications of the Sound BlasterX G6 are impressive. It serves as a 32-bit / 384 kHz** DAC with an ultra-high dynamic range of 130 dB. The DAC features an oversampled multi-bit modulator with mismatch shaping technology that eliminates distortion, ensuring that audio is streamed with the highest level of detail and fidelity. The Sound BlasterX G6 also supports hi-res PCM and DoP audio formats.

*Other inputs are not available in 32-bit / 384 kHz* (Direct Mode) playback.
