Built on 30 years of Sound Blaster audio processing technology, the Sound BlasterX G6 was developed with the belief that audio performance is every bit as important as visual quality in gaming and entertainment enjoyment. With its onboard audio processing capabilities powered by its SB-Axx1 chip set, the Sound BlasterX G6 is the only hardware audio solution which provides high-level performance that is consistent across all platforms, regardless of whether one is gaming on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch or PC.

The Sound BlasterX G6 is versatile enough to be a hardware Dolby Digital decoder, creating essentially limitless virtual surround channels for headphones and speaker systems. It also offers best-in-class audiophile-grade playback of standard and hi-res content with up to 32bit / 384 kHz content playback and a pristine 130 dB dynamic range. It also stands out as the only portable DAC / AMP to offer Xamp proprietary bi-amplification, which powers each earcup separately for smooth and accurate distortion-free playback.

The Sound BlasterX G6 will be showcased at CES 2019 - the world's largest consumer electronics show - which runs January 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Venetian Meeting Rooms, 2nd Floor, Bassano 2701.
