Get the best from your headphones on the move with the Bluetooth-enabled Creative E3 Sound Blaster.

Upgrade your music on the move

The restricted output of your mobile device means that your headphones may not be using their full potential. Maybe they sound quiet, but in some cases you'll be missing their full dynamic potential. Thanks to a power boosting circuit, the Creative Sound Blaster E3s will power your headphones to the level they deserve - even tricky 600 ohm studio-quality headphones. The result is a much more dynamic sound.

Bluetooth connectivity
The Creative E3 links up to your smartphone via Bluetooth. This means you can leave your phone in your bag or pocket and control the volume remotely, via the Sound Blaster E3. Answering the phone is possible, too; at the simple push of a button you can respond via the built-in microphone.

USB DAC
Plug into your PC or Mac via the USB connection and connect to your headphones or hi-fi via the headphone output to use the E3's built-in DAC. With a signal-to-noise ratio of 112dB, it will offer a better performance than the soundcard built into most computers, giving you a clearer and more dynamic sound.

Lightweight
Weighing just 44g, the E3 is light and unobtrusive. The built-in batteries last up to 8 hours per charge using a Bluetooth connection or 17 hours with a wired one. And with two headphone outputs, two people can share the benefits of the E3.

Personalised sound
Featuring SBX Pro Studio technology, connect the E3 to your PC or Mac and you can adjust the sound setting to your personal taste. Features include the ability to alter the SBX Surround Sound level and parameters such as SBX Bass plus level and Crossover Frequency adjustments.

Built-in microphone
The built-in microphone provides the additional benefit of using your normal headphones for phone conversations. When connected to PCs and Macs via USB, you can activate the CrystalVoice Technology; a suite of enhancements that reduces noise and provides for clearer conversations.

Don't compromise on the quality of your headphones or on great convenience, with the Creative E3 Sound Blaster you can have both!

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creative Soundblaster E3 Having visited Richer Sounds Reading with the intention of spending upwards of £400 on a pair of headphones in addition to my Bose AE2W & tried a pair of Oppo's & the highly rated Seinnheiser Momentum 2 over the ear which sounded very good although not noticeably better than the Bose. Steve the manager suggested trying the Creative E3 DAC/Amp which on first impressions I thought can't possible any good due to its tiny weight & size. Plugged into the Momentum's & wow- this has to be the best tiny piece of kit I have ever bought that transforms the sound from very good into breathtaking & more importantly it's so small you can clip it onto top for running gym etc. Decided to try using my current Bose which quite simply has transformed the sound almost on par with a Hi Res Sony player I bought , it really is that good in both richness of sound & detail of clarity is hugely improved. Best £100 I have ever spent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creative E3 Soundblaster- simply amazing using iPhone 6S As a real Audiophile nut who used to work in a specialist Hi Fi company many years ago this has to be the deal of the Century. Having both Sennheiser MM100 for the gym & Bose AE2W for running I was considering spending upwards of £400 on Either the Sennheiser Momentum 2 wireless or similar. Having tried the Momentums which sounded very good in Richer sounds Reading Although not £110 better than my Bose Steve suggested the Creative Soundblaster E3. Once connected all I can say is wow- breathtaking difference even comparable to a Hi Res Sony I had which didn't support Spotify so I returned. Not only is the clarity & richness amazing ,far more volume which the Bose struggled with. £100 is a very small price to pay for bringing out the true quality of the Bose as it is clear the iPhone amp & DAC are the weakness not the Bose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for use with mobile. Great product and very useable with my mobile phone.Unfortunately I cannot review them with my new Senhiser momentum 2 headphones yet as father christmas has not dropped them off , but I'm sure the combination will be superb. Many thanks to Kirt at Richer Sounds for sorting a suitible combo to work with my phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexible product that makes your hardware deliver more As much of the audio on my iPhone/iPod is compressed to 192Kb I was never expecting a revelation in sound as you can't magically bring back sound quality when it isn't there. As a result I didn't mind that this unit didn't deliver the higher resolutions of the pricier units. So, what's good??? > Portability - Much better than E5 as it's light enough for exercise / general use without weighing you down > Flexibility - Used this with iPhone & cable connected & via Bluetooth; both sound decent. Cable is marginally better, but through £60 IEM's and 192kbps source it's barely noticeable. I've also connected to laptop via Bluetooth feeding a portable speaker & the sound improved significantly > Sound - Adds a richness to 'i' devices, much needed volume & drives headphones much better If you want purist audio look elsewhere (Dacmagic XS), but as an all round solution that allows you to obtain better sound quality & volume levels from a range of portable devices look no further!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't actually work with iPhone or iPad This product is supposed to work as a dac/amp but both iPad and iPhone reject it saying it uses to much power. Still could be worse the E5 replacement lasted 45 mins before dying completely. Won't be buying creative stuff again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation I would never claim to be an audiophile (can't afford the good stuff anyway), I just like my music to sound halfway decent. Thought I would try out the Soundblaster E1 and see if it really worked. Out of stock, so the E3 was the next level up with added Bluetooth support. When I first tried it out I was massively disappointed, the sound quality was appalling! Then I realised that I hadn't plugged the headphones (AKG 551) all the way into the jack. The socket is very tight and I hadn't pushed the plug in far enough. This was soon rectified and the whole soundstage opened up. The difference in quality is stunning, Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here sounds like they are playing inside your head. If this is what Audiophile quality equipment makes music sound like, I'm saving up.
