The jewel in the Sound BlasterX G6's proverbial crown is a custom-designed Xamp discrete headphone amplifier. As opposed to single amplification found in other gaming DAC amps, Xamp amplifies both audio channels individually. You'll enjoy more detailed audio on highs, mids, and bass.
Xamp will drive most gaming headsets with excellent results, and also outputs a low 1 Ohms output impedance to drive performance-grade sensitive 16 Ohms, in-ear monitors, all the way to studio-grade 600 Ohms headphones.
The sound BlasterX G6 is impressive. It serves as a 32-bit / 384 kHz DAC with an ultra-high dynamic range of 130 dB. The DAC features an oversampled multi-bit modulator with mismatch shaping technology that eliminates distortion, ensuring that audio is streamed with a high level of detail and fidelity.
