Really, online communications shouldn't be this complicated. Sure, the pair of headphones that came bundled with your phone works. But does that make your online calls any easier?
A must-have for any work calls, the Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 is designed to solve your video call woes by simplifying the way you communicate. It debuts our newest SmartComms Kit, packed with an array of smart communication software features such as auto mute and two-way noise cancellation guaranteed to redefine your video call experience.
We've also made sure to uphold our ethos in delivering convenience and quality with a direct mic mute button, Bass Boost and Dynamic EQs, as well as an instant audio upgrade that surpasses the default audio on any of your devices.
Now, it's time to change the way you take your calls.
Our SmartComms Kit was developed to fix one common issue for Windows users—to simplify the way we communicate online—via a suite of smart communication features. Why fuss over mute controls or get distracted by unwanted background noises when you should be focusing on what matters instead? Plus, it can be used with any headphones or headsets with microphone, including those that comes bundled* with your mobile phones.
*Do note that the compatibility of PLAY! 4 with the button functions of your headsets are dependent on the respective manufacturer's implementation.

Plug in and that's it. The Creative Chat is a simple and straightforward 3.5 mm stereo headset that just works. It's compatible with most of the popular conference call apps too, you name it—Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, Cisco WebEx, Facebook Messenger, and Google Meet—fuss-free, and worry-free.
Connect to the 4-pole 3.5 mm analog jack on your PC, Mac, or even mobile devices, and be ready for your online calls in seconds.
Be heard without disruptions, from wherever you are. Creative Chat solves the issue of disruptive work calls in noisy environments, whether you're at home or in the office. With a passive noise-cancelling condenser microphone, your voice gets picked up over the surrounding noises and heard clearly by the callers on the other end. This keeps their focus on what you have to say and presents you as an effective communicator.
The built-in boom microphone is also retractable, so you can choose to lift it upwards to get it out of your way when you're not in a call, and back down for a video conference.
Quickly toggle the microphone switch to unmute yourself when it's your turn to speak. The convenient inline remote lets you mute and unmute yourself easily with just a slide of the switch, as well as instant volume adjustments on the volume control dial.
No more scrambling for that unmute button that's buried deep inside the conference app amongst the many tabs and screens anymore.
