A travel essential that sounds great and is very easy to use. . I’ve been using this device for a month now and i’m very pleased with the ease of use and, most importantly, the sound quality. I use it mostly when travelling. On coaches and trains it’s incredibly convenient to keep my phone stowed safely in a bag and just clip this device to a bag strap or leave it on the table. On aircraft, wedged in an economy seat, it’s a godsend: my phone can stay in a pocket rather than take up precious tray-table space. The built in mic is really useful with the phone too – i’m currently using a nokia 930 with the windows phone 8. This includes the cortana personal assistant and is set to read out text messages when they come in. You get a notification and just mumble ‘yes’ into the creative sound blaster e3 mic and your text is read out. It minimises the fetching out of your phone, which i like a lot.

Really powers my gaming headhones. Blue tooth is great as well have it matched with my phones and my samsung tv.

Very good, useful little device (only useful if you’re using high impedence headphones otherwise don’t bother). I’ve tried this with some high end b&w headphones, and the result is pleasing. It turns your wired headphones into wireless ones. (with of course the added hassle of having to charge an extra thing. )it works well with the iphone 7 & iphone 7 plus. I wish i was able to tell which button i was feeling when the device is out of sight in my pocket.

Superb apt-x bluetooth headphone amp for on-the-move. I’ve had this little gem about a year now, and i must admit to have being slightly bemused about it’s true use for some time after buying it. And how is it best used?at first i tried using it as an external dac, running my ipod 5g connected to it playing 24/48 flac files (24/48 is the maximum bit-depth/sampling rate that this unit will support via microusb). But the wires and arrangement was a little ‘clunky’ and frankly got in the way of my daily commute. Then i tried using it as an analogue amplifier connected to my sony nw-zx100 via a fiio l50 cable. Again, it worked fine and gave useful gain to the relatively weak sony’s output on my crowded daily train commute.

Creative Sound Blaster E3 Headphone Amplifier : I paired this up with a pair of akg k451 mini on-ear headphones (mini in size, not sound) and the galaxy s6 by samsung. I was quite disappointed with the sound coming out through the headphones when playing music on the phone. Especially being such a high profile phone, the sound was lacklusture and flat. So i purchased this and wow – it’s so portable, light, can clip on to your clothes and sounds awesome. Much louder, much clearer but much more oomph – fab purchase.

The mutz nutz with etymotic iems over bt aptx on a xperia z5 source.
This fixed the low headphone volume issue on my windows tablet and as an added bonus it works with my ps4 allowing me to use whatever headphones i want. Only drawback is that it uses the built-in mic when on ps4 but well worth it as it still does mic monitoring on the headphones so you know when you are shouting.

Soundblaster e3 headphone amp. As someone who has listened to a number of headphones using my iphone 7 the biggest criticism is the woeful dac which offers terrible sound quality compared to other smartphones on the market. Went to my local richer sounds who suggested i try a soundblaster e3 as it had very positive results, on first impressions i thought it looks too small to offer what i was looking for. Having connected to my b & w p7’s wireless headphones all i can say is wow, not only is the detail massively better but the amp really adds a greater sense of real natural sound & volume. As someone who has spent some serious money on a tube hi fi system which is my pride & joy – this really is incredible value for money plus because it’s so tiny can be clipped onto shirt while running which is a huge advantage along with added controls makes it the best value product i have ever invested in without spending a lot on a chord mojo which i’m sure is amazing but not practical for mobile use.

Best thing i have bought for ages. . A main annoyance with the iphone 7 is solved. I can now use a variety of headphones and not rely on the silly 9?. Pound dac cable that came with the phone and i promptly lost. Not only does it sound much better but i love the added audio controls on it and how it lets me keep my iphone hidden away on the bus etc. I will probably keep an eye out for a second cheap one to get as a spare.

This product has genuinely impressed me and i wasn’t expecting it to. I’ve got a creative zxr in my main pc and i bought this e1 knowing it wouldn’t be as good, but it’s not a million miles off for when you’re on the go. I’ve got it paired with a sennheiser pc360 headset, and have it plugged into a usb 3 port. By default, the surround and crystaliser are both on and the microphone port is configured as a headphone port. You’ll need to install the creative drivers to change this, but the settings seem to be stored on the device when you’ve set them which is excellent. There don’t appear to be any resident processes either which i also lovethe sound doesn’t quite have the same eat-shattering bass capabilities that the zxr has, but this product is also tiny and a fraction of the cost. The sound stage is just as wide when you’ve turned off the surround stuff and the mid-range and highs are nice and crisp. I’d definitely recommend this product for people wanting a great soundcard for use with a laptop.

Does exactly what it’s supposed to, and does it well. Excellent sound quality as a sound card, and a reasonable boost as an amp with no reduction in sound quality. Decent build quality, despite what other reviews have said, as long as you understand that it is made of plastic.

One of the best audio products i have ever bought. . One of the best audio products i have ever bought. It works as an external sound card on my laptop, desktop at work and my iphone. I also use it as a wireless receiver to listen to music on the go and in the gym. A very versatile product with an audio quality to match. It turns my two pairs of wired headphones in to wireless models. Perhaps the buttons could have been placed better and given more individual feel, but this is a minor irritation.

This is a very nice cheap item. I’m not an audiophile, but i keep buying audio stuff impulsively. Sound is warmer and louder than my lg g2 mini smartphone’s now, with sony mdr ma900 headphones, which are 12 ohm impedance, this sound card is capable of 600. Motorhead motorizer closed type gets more punch and sound is clearer, bass is not overpowering all together (with rock band like my brother the wind, pianist tigran hamasyan, meshuggah – marrow sounds really good). Anyway gonna test it with akg k550, philips shp 9500 (soon) too. Couldn’t tell a big difference between dedicated asus xonar d2 pci card and this one, but was a very nice experience in games with e1 listening to footsteps, and finding out quickly when enemy is retreating (cs-go, q3, whereas q3 sound engine is not very impressive anyway). Also tried to listen to some metal and rock songs while having this card connected to pc and using sony ma900: grabuge (demo) by chere catastrophe, animals as leaders – kascade, cylindrical sea, tooth and claw sounded not overpowering, could separate all instruments. 2015: creative aux audio cable is just pure crap, giving crackling and noise over headphones connected to smartphone, i had to use different cable bought over ebay, avoid creative cable.
