Scout Mode is one of our trademark sound modes that focuses on the detection of sounds through enhanced audio cues, highlighting each and every in-game detail that could make or break the game. Whether it's the sound of your enemies' gun reload or a slight ruffle in the grass, Scout Mode has the ability to pinpoint the sounds right in your ears. Detect your enemies' slightest movement before even seeing them on screen!
Experience unprecedented gaming audio immersion by listening in on the environment of your games, as if you're physically present in the game. SXFI BATTLE Mode is the first and only sound mode that allows you to hear not only the directionality of where the gunshots are coming from, but distance as well, so you can accurately pinpoint your enemies' locations, down to the millimeter.
2Please note that SXFI BATTLE Mode is a headphone technology and is only available in headphone mode. Scout mode is available in both modes, but is optimized for headphone use.
"Representing an evolution from another solid gaming soundbar, the Creative Sound Blaster Katana V2 takes everything that made the original so reliable and enjoyable, refining it and ramping up the quality … I recently spent weeks with the Katana V2 and can safely say that it is absolutely worthy of inclusion in 2022's best computer speakers conversation. In fact, it's a belter."
4.5/5 Highly Recommended
"Creative’s Sound Blaster Katana V2 has been a long time coming, but it’s been worth the wait. The V1, released in late 2016, has long been regarded as one of the best soundbars gamers can buy. The V2 cranks the dial with 68% more power, improved sound quality, and a bevy of quality of life improvements that push the Katana into the next generation, even if you’re a console gamer. At $329, it’s not just one of the best soundbars for gaming, it’s one of the best soundbars for the price, period. "
9.5/10 Golden Hardware Award
If you are looking to improve your audio-video experience, I think the Creative SoundBlaster Katana V2 is the best bang-for-your-buck purchase you can make. This is even more the case if work, game, and consume video content all in the same space or even on a single desktop PC.
Super clear and spacious sound with great connectivity options. The soundbar also becomes a soundcard when connected to PC via USB. The added microphone is a nice touch.
One gaming soundbar to rule them all! Perfect for living room and desktop PC. Excellent hi-res sound with powerful deep bass. Comes with lovely RGB lights too.
Just amazing.Nice sound quality and huge bass.
