Creative Sound Blaster Play! 2 USB sound card announced
Don’t you wish for the times when life was so much easier? If your PC game needs to play back sound, then get a sound card. It needs better graphics, purchase a superior graphics card than the one you have running today. Stuff were much more hands-on back then, and it was more or less considered a prerequisite for you to be able to take apart a computer and put it back again, not to mention making your own hardware upgrades and installations instead of the no-brainer plug-and-play scenario today. Sure, technology is a whole lot more accessible, but along the way, it would have also lost its mystery. If you want a plug and play sound card that offers more than what the integrated soundchip on your motherboard does, things do not get any easier than the Creative Sound Blaster Play! 2 USB sound card.
The Creative Sound Blaster Play! 2 USB sound card happens to be able to deliver a true-to-life 3D audio soundstage, and noiseless recordings for podcasts and video conferencing. It will play nice with a slew of analog headsets and earbuds, where your ears will be able to enjoy powerful audio via SBX Pro Studio technology, full audio settings customization via Sound Blaster Play! 2 Control Panel, and optimized profiles for select earphone brands. Gamers will be able to find that the Creative Sound Blaster Play! 2 USB sound card resonates with them, since the proprietary Scout Mode technology allows one to hear their enemies before their enemies hear them, giving you a distinct tactical advantage in a deathmatch or RTS scenario. However, one must ask themselves – what happens when both parties use the Creative Sound Blaster Play! 2 USB sound card? Does this cancel out the benefit?
The Creative Sound Blaster Play! 2 USB sound card will support both Windows OS and Mac OS platforms, and it will be priced at SGD$29 a pop when it arrives later this month.
