What customers say about "Key Specs"
HyperX Amp (HX-USCCAMSS-BK) USB Sound Card
  • Sounds great. Plenty of volume.
  • I use this almost everyday, and the sound quality is good.
  • The sound quality and durability is really good.
  • The sounds weren’t loud enough, the microphone quality wasn’t good.
  • The sound enhancement it provides is very tiny and honestly, better off without.
Creative Sound BlasterX G1 7.1 Portable HD Gaming USB Sound Card
  • The sound quality was great.
  • The G1, with the volume cranked up high enough to make the background hiss a non-issue, sounds great.
  • The surround positioning in games and movies is very good, probably the best I've ever heard over a stereo headset.
  • The audio quality is more than good enough to expose the difference between lossy mp3s and lossless flac files.
  • It works great and the audio is clean, no hissing, even with older headphones without mic.
