Creative Sound Blaster G3 Portable External USB-C DAC Amp Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2020-04-20

Right after connecting the Sound Blaster G3 to our SteelSeries Arctis 1 wired gaming headset, we went ahead and fired up the Command application, for adjusting the necessary settings, along with the SBX effects and EQ. We did fire up Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and noticed an increase in overall audio quality versus the integrated audio of the DELL 7577 test laptop, but also better bass representation, like we would have made the jump to a mainstream USB headset. The EQ setting for detecting footsteps works well, as intended (increased treble, lowered mids and lows), but we would only keep activated for short time periods. In Trials Rising, the motorbike engines sounded much better with the SBX presets, while the different gun sounds were a delight in The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing as well.

At first we would like to thank Creative for offering us a sample of their Sound Blaster G3 Portable External USB-C DAC Amp for testing and reviewing.
