Get high resolution, audiophile sound from your headphones, with the Creative Sound Blaster E5.

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.

Compatible with hi-res audio
Taking a step up from the E3 model, the Creative Sound Blaster E5 is compatible with high-resolution audio formats. The built-in DAC (Digital to Analogue Convertor) is a high quality Cirrus Logic CS4398 with support for sample rates up to high resolution 24 bit/192kHz standard. This makes it ideal for use with high resolution downloads or streaming sites plus SACD, Blu-ray and other high-resolution sources.

Bluetooth NFC
Featuring NFC enhanced Bluetooth, all you need to do is swipe your NFC compatible smartphone or tablet next to the E5 and your wireless connection is made. No NFC? Then simply pair up your smartphone, tablet, laptop, PC or Mac in the usual way. Once connected, you can enjoy wireless music streaming in high quality aptX codec quality.

USB DAC with asynchronous mode
Plug the E5 into your PC or Mac via the USB connection and then connect your headphones. The E5's DAC will provide a great step-up in sound quality over most computer soundcards giving a clearer and much more dynamic sound. It also supports asynchronous mode: data is 'pulled' from the computer under the control of the Sound Blaster E5, not 'pushed' to the DAC. This allows the DAC to process the signal optimally, ensuring the lowest possible output jitter and best possible sound quality with minimal distortion.

Two headphone sockets
With two headphone outputs, two people can share the benefits of the E5. Featuring a rechargeable battery, the E5 provides up to eight hours of charge, even when connected via Bluetooth.

Personalised sound
Featuring SBX Pro Studio technology, when connected to your PC or Mac it's possible to adjust the sound settings on the E5 to your personal tastes. Features include the ability to alter the SBX Surround Sound level, the SBX Bass plus level and make crossover frequency adjustments. SBX Pro Studio can be switched off when listening to high-quality lossless audio giving a cleaner signal with less processing.

For serious headphone listening at home or on the move, the Creative Sound Blaster E5 offers a gold standard.

We'll happily come to you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Piece of Sound Tech Compared to the G5 Creative, the E5 has an internal battery which can charge your mobile device which is a nice bonus. It has certainly amplified my sound experience on the go. The onboard mic is a good feature if you are a PC user though you will need to position it close to you for the best reception.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A significant upgrade for your phone I purchased this on a whim a few months ago. I needed a headphone amp /dac for my phone and laptop and this seemed to fit the bill. Linking it up to my phone via Bluetooth there was a considerable jump in the sound quality with my Grado SR325e in comparison to plugging the headphones directly into the headphone socket. There's ann increase in both the detail and the space between the various parts of the music For me it has represented a good investment. Biggest foible has been the fact I can't plug my phone into it via USB without it draining the phone battery. Even so it scores where it counts ie sound quality and that's good enough for me.
