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.

It is definitely the better amp at this price range. Value for money!
The sound blaster is perfect for use with smartphone and works brilliantly as a portable amplifier.
Upon receiving the delivery packages from the courier, I was pleasantly surprised by the compactness and how light-weight the Sound Blaster E1 is. The device also had an understated and minimalist look which suits my tastes. My usage for the E1 comprises of connecting it to my mobile phone as an output for my earphones and as a replacement for my desktop's onboard sound chip. 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. In all, the Sound Blaster E1 is great value for money as it can provide quality sound in a variety of scenarios. This is one highly recommended product!
