Hear your games in full 7.1 virtual surround sound! The Sound BlasterX H6 is a high performance USB gaming headset that delivers powerful audio, whether you're on PC, PS4, Xbox, or Nintendo Switch.

Enjoy loud but accurate audio with its custom-tuned 50mm Neodymium drivers, along with Sound Blaster's full suite of powerful audio enhancements, including Scout Mode that lets you hear your enemies before they hear you! The headset also features a detachable noise-reducing ClearComms microphone for in-game voice comms. Lastly, the Sound BlasterX H6 also features three professionally-tuned hardware EQ profiles, breathable and replaceable fabric earpads for comfort, and customizable Aurora Reactive RGB Lighting.

  1. What platforms does the Sound BlasterX H6 work with? The Sound BlasterX H6 works with PC, Mac, and PS4 via USB.

    To connect the Sound BlasterX H6 to the Nintendo Switch, either connect the USB to the USB port on the Nintendo Switch dock, or connect directly to the console via the included 3.5mm cable.

    It works with the Xbox One over 3.5mm cable as well.

    Sound Blaster Connect software is used to further customize the Sound BlasterX H6. This software is only available on PC.

  2. Does 7.1 surround work on all platforms? 7.1 Virtual Headphone Surround is only available on Windows Operating System with Sound Blaster Connect installed.

    Alternatively, user can choose to use Windows Sonic For Headphones or Dolby Atmos for Headphones. (Optional purchase)

  3. Does the Sound BlasterX H6 store settings for customization, or do I need to keep changing my settings every time I use the headset? Changes made via Sound Blaster Connect are stored only on the PC, and not in the headset itself.

    Disconnecting the Sound BlasterX H6 from a PC where the settings are customized will make it revert to its default settings.

    This includes processing effects, EQ, and lighting effects.

  4. Does the Sound BlasterX H6 support Dolby or DTS? The Sound BlasterX H6 does not come with its own built-in Dolby or DTS technology.

    Dolby Atmos for Headphones is supported and is available as an optional purchase from the Microsoft Store.

    Do note that only 1 virtual surround processing algorithm should be used at any time. For example, if SBX Surround is enabled, Dolby Atmos for Headphones should be disabled.

  5. How do I install and update drivers for the Sound BlasterX H6? Navigate to our support page and select Sound BlasterX H6. Follow the onscreen instructions for the software installation.

    The software package includes the Sound Blaster Connect application, drivers for the Sound BlasterX H6, and supporting software modules.

  6. Can I use the 3.5mm audio jack simultaneously with USB? No. Plugging in the 3.5mm cable audio gives it priority over USB.
  7. Are equalizer and processing effects compatible with PS4 and other consoles? EQ and processing effects are stored locally within the Sound Blaster Control software on PC. Disconnecting the Sound BlasterX H6 from a PC where the settings are customized will make it revert to its default settings.

    Only the on-board three hardware EQ profiles are available when the Sound BlasterX H6 is connected to PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

  8. What are the inner measurements of the cup size? Height: 58mm 
    Width: 43mm
  9. Can others hear my environment if I turn on Ambient Monitoring? No. Only the user will be able to hear the surrounding environment when Ambient Monitoring is turned on.
  10. What is the difference between Ambient Monitoring and Mic Monitoring? Ambient Monitoring utilizes a small, hidden microphone to allow users to listen to the room/environment they are seated in.

    Mic Monitoring allows the users to hear what is being recorded on the detachable ClearComms microphone.

    These features are not designed to work simultaneously.
