The Sound Blaster Katana V2X is a very interesting review of the Sound Blaster Katana V2, a sound bar that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time and that left us with a very good taste in our mouths, both for its careful design and for its high compatibility, its advanced functions and its sound quality in all situations.
So what has changed in the Sound Blaster Katana V2X? Well, we are dealing with a sound system that is much smaller in size than the original original, since according to Creative has been able to reduce the size of the subwoofer by 40%. This means that it takes up less space, and that it is better suited to those desktops where this is a limited resource.
Despite this reduction in size, the performance level has not been affected, and the sound quality remains at the level of what we saw in the Sound Blaster Katana V2. This is something very positive, and it means that with the Sound Blaster Katana V2X we will enjoy High fidelity multi-channel sound via tri-amplified Xamp technology. This technology is supported by a Creative multi-core DSP chip that individually powers the different groups of speakers (high, mid and subwoofer).
There is also the technology of Super X-Fi holographic sound, which we can activate by connecting headphones to the Sound Blaster Katana V2X. With this technology we will enjoy a sound effect enveloping and immersive which will greatly improve our gaming experience when using headphones. Other important values to highlight in the Sound Blaster Katana V2X are the SXFI Battle mode, which will give us an advantage in action games thanks to positional sound, the Scout mode, which will help us better detect enemy noise, and the dolby audio decoderideal for playing series and movies.
Creative has confirmed that the Sound Blaster Katana V2X is fully integrated into the dedicated and free application that is available for PC, and that through it we can access numerous settings and configuration options. We can also use it to customize RGB LED lighting present in the base of this sound bar.
When it comes to connectivity, this new soundbar is on a good level, as it includes HDMI Arc and optical S/PDIF outputs, it has a USB Type-C port, it has a 3.5 jack and it has a dedicated SXFI output to get the most out of Super X-Fi products. It also offers Bluetooth 5.0 wireless connectivity. It is compatible with PC, Mac, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series XS, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It is now available at a price of €309.99.
