Creative homework audio and visual kits are hitting the right notes

If you work from home – and with lockdown after lockdown, there are so many of us – Creative Labs wants to make sure you have the best audio and video experience. The company bundled three of its products together to create a one-shot job kit consisting of a headset, 1080p webcam, and noise-canceling headphone adapter. This is combined with smart software to reduce background noise from both your side and the other side.

Creative Labs has a solid and well-known history in audio excellence, setting the first standard for PC sound cards. Its three products in the work-at-home kit build on its excellence in audio engineering.

The three products in Creative’s Homework Kit include

  1. the Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 headphone adapters, a USB-C device (with a USB-C to USB-A adapter included) that sits between your computer and your headset and instantly gives you automatic mute as well as two-way noise cancellation. It works with any 3.5mm wired headset and works equally well with Windows and macOS devices, as well as PlayStation and Nintendo Switch consoles, Android devices, iPad Pros, and iPads running iPadOS 13 or later. .
  2. the Sound Blaster JAM V2 headset – a comfortable USB and Bluetooth headset that supports multipoint pairing so you can use it with two Bluetooth devices at the same time, or one device connected by USB. The box includes a USB-C to USB-A cable. The headset is easily controllable with a multi-function button that allows you to play / pause music, answer / end calls, call Siri or Google Assistant, reject calls, redial, etc. . It has an autonomy of 22 hours and weighs less than 100 grams.
  3. the Live! Webcam Cam Sync 1080p V2 – a Full HD camera and microphone with built-in auto-mute and noise cancellation. It includes a universal tripod mounting clip and a privacy lens cap. It offers 77 degree viewing angle, with 30 degree tilt and 360 degree orientation. It records in 1080p at 30 frames per second.

This is a great package, giving you the flexibility to work the way you want, and with the confidence that your picture and sound are also crisp and annoying noise is reduced.

Two-way noise cancellation features are new. While active noise cancellation is standard with almost all modern headphones, it just keeps noise out in your surroundings. You can still hear all the horrible noises from where your interlocutor is calling. With two-way noise cancellation, your Creative devices will actively reduce any interference that comes your way.

All three devices are compatible with Creative’s SmartComms Kit, which provides Windows computers with a set of software tools to automatically mute and unmute your microphone, as well as noise-cleaning features for your voice and the voices of those you speak with. Download the Creative app on your PC and you will enjoy the benefits of VoiceDetect, NoiseClean-in and NoiseClean-out.

These also give you automatic mute and wake-up via VoiceDetect and noise cancellation, both inbound and outbound via the other two features. However, you also get a high degree of control with built-in advanced configuration items. You can adjust the delay on VoiceDetect so that you have to speak loudly for it to go off – preventing it from reactivating you while you are softly singing a song – and you can adjust the background noise levels to filter out. Whether you are working in a quiet office or a server room that looks like jet engines, or even if someone is drying their hair behind you, you can adjust the noise cancellation accordingly.

However you choose to work, Creative has you covered to make the best work from home experience and the frustration of “can you hear me” a thing of the past.
