Sound Blaster PLAY! 4: Conference Calls Made Smart and Easy

Milpitas, California, UNITED STATES

Milpitas, Calif. , Feb. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Creative Technology today announced the release of Sound Blaster PLAY! 4, a pocket-sized USB DAC that is boosted with new features to help users communicate effectively. Sporting the all-new SmartComms Kit (for Windows), Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 comes with an array of smart communication features, such as VoiceDetect and Two-way Noise Cancellation to make every conference call easy and fuss-free for users working from home.

The latest VoiceDetect feature allows users to speak freely without disruption as the mute status switches based on voice detection — the microphone gets unmuted instantly when the user’s voice is detected, and is muted automatically when no further speech is detected.   There is no need to fiddle with any buttons, and users can focus on what matters most - the conversation itself. On the other hand, a nifty two-way noise cancellation feature works to reduce unwanted background noises during online calls at both ends — NoiseClean-in for incoming audio and NoiseClean-out for outgoing audio — so that only the users’ voices are heard clearly throughout every conversation.

Despite its tiny size, the Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 packs a mighty audio punch that is expected of a Sound Blaster, with 24-bit / 192 kHz resolution at 110 dB to deliver an instant audio upgrade that is clearer and richer than the default audio inherent in devices. Users can also further enhance the audio quality of their music, movie and gaming content with Bass Boost and Dynamic EQs via the conveniently-located EQ button.

On top of that, users retain access to the renowned Sound Blaster Acoustic Engine that offers a suite of industry-leading audio processing technologies such as Surround immersion and CrystalVoice.

These features are all conveniently accessed through the all-new Creative app, which is a new software platform with an integrated user interface across various products.

Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 is easy to set up with convenient compatibility across multiple platforms – from PC, Mac to PS5, PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Coupled with nifty new features for smarter communication and greater portability, the Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 is an easy choice for users as the perfect work from home solution for any work calls.
