What The Critics are Saying about the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD Card

"To say we were blown away doesn't do justice to how impressed we were with the audio this card pumped out."
--Joel Durham Jr, Maximum PC, April 2011

High-Fidelity Components Deliver Pristine Sound

The X-Fi Titanium HD offers a significant improvement over a standard motherboard's onboard audio. The card delivers a signal-to-noise ratio of 122 dB, which ensures that audio playback is pure and distortion-free. The card's components make a particular difference when playing music: high and mid tones are reproduced with pitch-perfect detail, and lows are defined and tight.

Outfitted with audio-enhancing technologies, the Titanium HD features THX's TruStudio Pro technology, which helps preserve the original balance and timbre of film audio. The card also supports Dolby Digital and DTS decoding formats, giving it multichannel and surround sound capabilities.

Swappable Op-Amps for Customizable Audio

The Titanium HD features fully customizable components--the card's op-amps are swappable, meaning that they can be switched and tweaked to fit your desires. This allows you to adjust sound coloration and personalize your listening experience. Audiophiles will be able to create a sound profile to fit tonal preferences.

EAX 5.0 Enhances Gaming Audio and Performance

The Titanium HD has been specially engineered to handle gaming applications. Using hardware-accelerated EAX 5.0 technology, the sound card delivers crisp, deep audio that will fully immerse you in the game.

In addition to enriching your gaming audio, the Titanium HD will boost your PC's gaming performance as a whole. By functioning as a dedicated sound unit, the card frees up resources that would otherwise be tied up in audio processes. This allows your PC to dedicate more of its processing power towards other tasks, like graphical and AI processing. The result is a gaming experience free of hiccups and slowdowns.

Supports Wide Range of I/O Connectivity

Built for versatility, the Titanium HD supports connections to a variety of devices. It features ports that can accommodate microphones, headphones, home studio speakers, portable music players, AV Receivers, game consoles, and more.

The sound card is designed for solid headphone performance: the card supports up to 115 dB and 24-bit/96 kHz output, allowing for high-definition headphone playback. Microphone recordings are noteworthy, too, thanks to the card's latency-reducing ASIO technology.

I have to give this product a 5 star rating because it's just simply AWESOME! I didn't really think a quality sound card could make such a huge difference, but I decided to take a risk and try this thing... I was not disappointed. I am coming from onboard VIA HD integrated sound to this and especially when playing games I noticed the sound quality is crisp, clear, and feels like it surrounds you making for a remarkable immersive gaming experience. I have this card hooked up to my DT770 Pro 80 ohm headphones and it drives them PERFECTLY, they get loud and the bass can get as deep and as punchy as I want them too with little adjustments in the settings. What I really like is how there is are different modes you can select for different applications. I can throw it into game mode and get the best sound for pc gaming possible. Throw it into Entertainment mode and your music will take your breath away, I know I may sound cheezy but its really that good.

I originally picked up the USB version of the x-fi titanium hd as it sounded as if there was a built in headphone amp that would really drive my headphones better. I was very dissapointed with what I found, the usb version could not drive my headphones any better than my onboard integrated sound. I realized that this card really was also not built for gaming like the non usb version was as it lacked many options included in the non usb version. The usb version however was amazing for music with easier to drive headphones.

If you want the best sound quality for music AND games, get this card! You will not be disappointed!

From the start, I hadn't checked much reviews from the product: a friend of mine had bought the product, he was pleased with it so I bought just the same product.

I bought it for gaming purpose, not for content creation, so I will not comment on this since I have no knowledge of it. Also, I only used it with headphones, Astro A40 with MixAMP.

With normal 3.5mm headphone jack, the card is flawless and gives good results. Nothing to complain about.

When I hooked the new headphones (the Astro) using a optical out, I've started having problems with the card: whenever there was no sound, as in no media playing, there is a clicking noise (about 100 clicks a minute) comming out of the optical out. I've changed cables, headphones, drivers, etc, but the noise kept going. After searching the net, I found I wasn't the only one having the problem. The only known solution is to put the card into "Musical Creation" mode for the noise to stop. You can always change the mode to gaming or something else before starting your game, but I can hardly believe a company in the sound industry for so many years cannot fix the problem with their drivers.

So that's it: product is great, apart from that very annoying clicking sound comming from the optical out in all modes but "Musical Creation".

I really enjoy the sound quality now, and SNR is really awesome! The lows sound really good and there is tons of options to configure the sound output based on what you are listening to.

You owe it to yourself to get this card. I was perfectly happy using the on board sound processor that came with my mother board but when I wanted to transfer my vinyl records to digital the onboard sound card just did not cut it. After researching my different options in add in sound cards it came down to 2 cards I could use to do the job I had in mind. An ASUS Xonar Essence STX or the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Tatanium HD card shown here. Although the Asus card was newer tech than the 2 year old X-Fi card I opted for the SB X-Fi card based on the reviews and testimonials of others and I have to agree with every one of them. The difference in quality between an onboard sound card and the X-Fi is night and day. I thought that my PC system sounded pretty fine before I added this card to my system but now, I think I would put it up against my surround sound home theatre system for quality. Connecting this card to my turntable via a Cambridge Audio Azur 551P-B phono pre-amp was a snap and I am now happily converting my old vinyl LPs to digital knowing that the quality of the recordings I attain is about as good as it can be. As I said, the technology is getting on with this card but they can still be found and they are getting hard to come by but I can assure you that it will definitely be worth the effort.
