I've got to be honest, before I was offered this product, I had never even thought about purchasing a sound card and was very naive to think they wouldn't make much difference in audio quality, however I was proven wrong the moment I had it fully up & running and blasted some audio through my speakers.

I own some Dell speakers which would be classified as "old" in computer years, I've always thought that it's all down to the speakers whether the sound is good or not. Now whilst that is true to a certain extent, without the proper audio processing, your not going to get the optimum quality, and that's where this sound card comes in and so far I have been more than impressed.

Even my microphone on my headset seems like it's been given an "upgrade" since using this sound card, whilst it doesn't make the microphone perfect, it does enhance the quality to make it much better.

Another thing I want to add is that when you install the software, you get a program called 'Sound Blaster Recon3D PCIe Control Panel', this allows you to fully tweak your headphones/microphone and speakers to suit your needs. I found it to be very simple to navigate through the interface as well as easy to change the settings.

Overall I have been very impressed with this sound card, if you want to enhance your audio experience, then I would highly recommend this product!
