Sound BlasterX Katana Review: A Soundbar for Gamers?


Sound Blaster X Katana
The RGB illumination is located at the bottom.

The RGB lighting is a nice bonus, but should not be the only reason to buy. Unfortunately, the effect wears off quickly. This is also due to the fact that relatively few setting options exist. There is no link at all with events in games. The following configurations can be found:

  • A series of colors runs from one side to the other.
  • Up to seven zones with one fixed color each.
  • A solid color across the entire width.
  • A breathing effect of any color (the LEDs will be brighter and darker).

Profiles can be defined with a combination of sound settings and lighting and linked to specific programs. This is good because it allows the sound to be optimized for each individual game and the desired setting is automatically selected.

A Communication Talent

Everyone can connect here. The device offers both digital and analog inputs.

Also positive are the possibilities to connect different players. Although the sound bar is primarily intended for use as a USB sound card on a PC, it can also be connected via Bluetooth, optical TOS link and 3.5 mm jack. In this case, however, you cannot use your own sound or LED profiles.

If you don’t want any external players at all, you can simply plug in a USB stick with audio files and listen to music in this way. In this case, the music can be controlled either by buttons on the top of the unit or with the supplied remote control. This is also possible when connecting via USB or Bluetooth. Then the control commands are forwarded directly to the connected device.
