Creative Sound BlasterX Kratos S3 2.1 Speaker System Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2017-02-19

Sound BlasterX Kratos S3 is an entry-level 2.1 speaker system from Creative, which is marketed mostly at gamers, but can be also used on a wide range of devices thanks to the analog audio interface. It comes with two 2.75’’ satellites and one 5.25’’ down-firing subwoofer for a RMS total power of 46W. This should be more than enough for small apartments or for users that do not want to spend a fortune on a more advanced system, while providing easy switching with headphones, thanks to the included headphone jack located on the right satellite.

Product Features:


Crafted for the Finest Acoustic


Built entirely out of wood for better resonance damping, the Kratos S3 enclosures deliver fuller, warmer, more natural sound than plastic-based designs. The full-range satellites are optimized and designed with larger volume capacity to produce clear highs and detailed mid-range audio. The custom-tuned, down-firing subwoofer with port-tube design pumps out deep dynamic bass for massive gaming, superb movie and rich bass-centric music playback without distortion.


Pwn the Battlefield


Specially designed for the intense gamers, rev up your audio experience with 92 watts of pure power to give your entertainment or gameplay an extra “oomph”. Alternatively, you can connect to other media players via analog cable.


Be in Control


Adjust the volume control knob to bring out the best in your music, movies and games. Going for a scrim or perhaps some late night mayhem? Plug in any analog headset into the right satellite for a hassle-free change from speakers to something discreet.


Sound BlasterX Acoustic Engine Lite


Although the speakers sounds great on their own, we have tapped into our rich history of creating class-leading audio algorithms to take the sound of the Kratos S3 beyond the realm of its physical limitations through audio enhancements optimized for your gameplay.
