When a phone call comes in, a simple press of a button on the Sound Blaster E3 allows you to answer the call. Awesome!

Clear Voice Conversations With CrystalVoice Technology

The built-in microphone provides the additional benefit of using your normal headphones for conversations over the phone.

The detail in the audio was vastly improved with a full bass and airy audio that added life to the games I play. Of course, the amplification helped as well.

Sound Blaster E3


Think Computers

The multitude of options and possibilities that it gives you is amazing since you can use it as a USB sound card one minute and the next be using it as a Bluetooth wireless receiver the next or have both so you never miss a important phone call while listening or watching something can be crucial.

Sound Blaster E3



So who should get it? Well, audiophiles will love the idea of more power and the ability to achieve that certain sound quality you can only get from playing around with an equalizer. Tech junkies will get a kick out of how convenient the E3, and how convenient it makes life in general. Generally speaking, though, this is something that people who are always on-the-go will really enjoy.

Customer Reviews

V. Sivonen

E3 gives superb sound quality when compared to a plain Audio Source which in my case are not bad in the first hand - Samsung Galaxy Note 4. I get the best Audio Quality so far when I combine the Note 4, the DFX Audio Enhacer (setting as Classical Music with flat EQ settings) and E3 via Bluetooth.

J. E. d. Cruz

I like how this device improved the music output to my wired earphones. It really delivers that extra bass sound. Only thing is, the clip broke within a year of use so I had to put it in my pocket while in use. I had to to take it out when a call comes in to use the mic function. I hope the clip can still be repaired. I like to use this device from time to time.

H. T. Phua

It will be better if the bluetooth capability of the device can be used to transmit sound to wireless headphones and speakers when connected to the PC as a sound card. The sound quality is great with the built-in amplifier. SBX Pro Studio improves the effects of sound as well. It is portable and makes it easy to improve the quality of your sound significantly.
