  • Headfonics

    Tonally the Sound Blaster E1 is a clean sounding amp with an added touch of warmth and reasonable levels of dynamics with sensitive or easy to drive headphones and IEM’s.

    What sets E1 apart is really its unique set of features. Creative has managed to pack just about everything you want for an basic external PC soundcard for headphone into a really small body, while making it double as a standalone amp and still keeping it cheap yet competent. It is the stick of all trade and a relevant gadget that fits right into this post PC era.

    The difference was incredible – Dragonforce bounced around my ear canals with increased clarity and intensity – two things which, most of the time, are mutually exclusive. I was blown away by how much better my iPhone’s music sounded thanks to this almost $50 dollar little box.

    The E1 managed to make my onboard sound on my laptop sound bad in comparison and it was able to improve the sound of the Nexus 4 considerably. Testing in game, in movies, and with music all sounded great.

Customer Reviews

  • K. Zou

    It is definitely the better amp at this price range. Value for money!

  • T. Dutta

    The sound blaster is perfect for use with smartphone and works brilliantly as a portable amplifier.

  • J. Cheong

    As an output for my portable device, the Sound Blaster delivered impressive playback with sharper highs, clearer mids, deeper bass and a wider soundstage. Battery life is very good too as I have been using it for close to 20 hrs without needing a charge. As a replacement soundcard for my desktop, sound output was fantastic as compared to onboard sound in all aspects be it for music, movies or games. The E1's small footprint is also a plus in this setting as it does not take up much space on the computer table...

  • J. Teo

    small and light which comes with two headphone output jacks. But most importantly, the immediate transformation of sound quality with this tiny add-on will totally change your expectation on the music sound to your ears.

  • L. Chan

    I notice that the singer’s voice in songs is clearer (I am amazed that I can hear the difference) and the bass is slightly toned down when using my Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Headphones. A full charge on the Sound Blaster E1 can last you for 25 hours. It is extremely lightweight, weighing only at 25g. The Sound Blaster E1 also comes with a built-in microphone which allows you to use your normal headphones for conversations over the phone. Note that if your headphones come with a remote to control the volume and music playback of Android or iPhone, it will not work with the Sound Blaster E1.

  • J. K

    This device saved me from getting new mp3 device that has enough sound effects. I am using note 2, after android 4.3 update my factory music player sound dull and some of equalizers and additional environmental effects were softened. This device boosted abt 50%.

  • C. Chung

    Bought this primarily to use as a microphone for my Skype call, my voice is picked up clearly, better than the usual build in mic on the headset, the CrystalVoice definitely helps. The two headphone jack makes sharing music with another a breeze. Highly recommended gadget to enhance your audio experience.

  • K. Ong

    The Sound Blaster E1 is truly an extraordinary device on the go. I love the simple thought of the device and it makes all my IEMs, In-Ear headphones sound superb with Creative's touch of sound. I hope to see a better version between the E1 and E3, particularly a cheaper Bluetooth device with E1 features + more iPhone features.
