Sound BlasterAxx speakers officially announced

Last week, Creative teased the public with the reveal of an upcoming Sound Blaster product. Today, the covers come off on the Sound BlasterAxx. As it turns out, It's a family of speakers that's quite a departure from the previous PC Sound Blaster sound cards.


All three versions of the Sound BlasterAxx use the new and advanced SB-Axx1 sound processor, but the cool thing about these products is that they can act as a voice control enhancement for a variety of applications. That means if you hook up your iPhone 4S, these speakers can hear you speak into the phone if you want to use Siri or any other voice command app.

All three speakers can be powered by a USB device, which will certainly give even these large speakers more mobility. There's also CrystalVoice, which improves sound features for voice and video chats. For example, Smart Volume can automatically lower or increase the volume of a device depending on where a person is in relation to the speaker.

The speakers can also be controlled and set up using a PC, Mac, iOS or Android device. The Sound BlasterAxx SBX 10 is priced at $149.99 and the Sound BlasterAxx SBX 8 (designed just for the PC and Mac) has a $99.99 price point. Both will go on sale in July. The Sound BlasterAxx SBX 20 is priced at $199.99 and is due out in August.
