What is the Creative Labs Sound Blaster GC7? Well, in short, ask yourself, have you ever wondered how you can enhance the Sound fx to your favourite games? Do you have a luxurious pair of cans you want to fully utilise while you can? 

If you answer YES to all of them, here are 5 reasons why we think the Sound Blaster GC7 is made just for you… especially if you’re a gamer or streamer passionate about sound and audio:

  • The Sound Options Are Near-Endless Using The Creative Software

The Sound Blaster GC7 is a Game Streaming DAC Amp… kinda like having a more luxurious and power pack external sound card to make your audio experience for gaming sound even better than normal.

There are so many combinations that allow you to mix and match to get your desired sound. 

It includes a 7.1 virtual surround on both headphones and speakers. The Dolby Audio decoding is comparable to its Cinematic Experience. In other words, imagine going into Dolby Atmos, but in your own home.

  • Game and Voice Mix

Want to focus more on the game’s SFX than the dialogues, block out the sound of your friends’ annoying rants and toxicity while you enjoy the game? 

The Sound Blaster GC7 allows you to adjust your listening experience from Game and Voice as you wish… kinda like having a magic lamp like Aladdin but you get more than 3 wishes on your audio. You can choose to have more Game Audio or more Voice audio, your wish is the Sound Blaster GC7 command. 

  • Connectivity, Support a wide range of devices/platform

It’s super easy to connect this device to several platforms. From your phone, PC, Mac and consoles which includes PlayStation 5, 4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.

d. Keystroke (trigger keystroke)

By the way, did we mention, you can also customize the RGB to your liking? Well, you can change the colour combinations to whatever you like.

Moreover, each time you click to toggle the switches between the channels, the LED light will help you indicate which channel you’ve switched to.

  • Scout Mode

Scout Mode is one of the creative trademark sound modes for the Creative Labs Sound Blaster GC7 DAC. In a way, it’s like a secret legal cheat code that your enemies won’t know.

Now, why do we say that it’s a cheat? Well, for one, it focuses on detection through enhanced audio cues. For instance, it helps you to clearly identify where your enemies are and how far they may seem.

It helps to highlight in-game detail with precision, it’s like if you have glasses for your ears. The Sound Blaster GC7’s Scout Mode helps you bring the cues right to your ears.
