Creative Also Announces Sound BlasterX P5 Gaming Headset

Posted: Aug 4, 2015 11:13 pm | Audio, Sound & Speakers Press Releases | Stock Ticker: OTCMKTS:CREAF

Creative Technology Ltd today announced at gamescom 2015, as part of the Sound BlasterX Gaming Series, the Sound BlasterX P5, a High-performance In-ear Gaming Headset. As a smaller and lighter headset solution with far superior noise isolation, the Sound BlasterX P5 is built with two custom-tuned, high-sensitivity 7 mm FullSpectrum drivers with port tubes for deep clean bass and clear highs, and a high-performance omni-directional inline microphone optimized for vocal capture.




Unlike other bass heavy in-ear gaming headsets, its well balanced audio signature offers a wide, layered soundstage with rapid response, giving gamers tactical advantage through the distinct ability to perceive cues, depth and location accurately. It is tuned to enhance the listening experience and not to overwhelm, allowing gamers to experience an amazing level of detail while being immersed in the gaming experience for extended hours without listening fatigue. The Sound BlasterX P5 sets the new audiophile in-ear standard for gaming while delivering powerful sound even at low volumes.


  • Titanium coated diaphragm
  • Custom tuned 7 mm FullSpectrum drivers
  • High sensitivity, low impedance design
  • High-performance inline microphone with call and playback controls
  • Premium build with advanced noise isolation
  • 3 sizes of soft spiral-ribbed silicone earbuds
  • Carrying case included


BlasterX Acoustic Engine Lite

The Sound BlasterX P5 also comes with the BlasterX Acoustic Engine Lite software for PC that allows gamers to customize their audio profile to the game genres that they are playing. It is designed to intelligently decrease distractions and enhance essential audio details in games, giving gamers an added advantage. For instance, 'First-Person Shooter' increases spatial reality and perception with virtual surround, 'Action & Adventure' enhances realism for a cinematic experience, 'Real Time Strategy' boosts clarity and reduces distractions so that gamers stay focused when pitched against time, and 'Driving' magnifies details such as tire noises as the car races along - enabling gamers to hear subtle differences while racing.

Sound BlasterX P5 is priced at USD $69.99, and will be available by end of October, 2015.
