ok guys so apparently when you buy this from Massdrop you only get 30 days warranty. Just so you know.
If you live in US, creative will take care of the warranty stuff, too bad I live in Canada so creative won't help me.
I'm throwing this speakers set in a garbage bin lol, lasted 3 months ish.
Getting that new logitech speaker.

Have you contacted Creative or Creative support person who lurks on this forum?
My sound blaster x katana doesn't show up on any device when in bluetooth pairing mode. Impossible to connect to it then. What's the problem ??? It'd be bothersome to resend it ...

got the same problem

Did you send it back ? No way to fix ?
Got this thing, its nice.. software is nice but the usb computer cable is loose (the 1 that connects to the speaker). Keeps getting loose connection to the pc everytime it moves even a little.
Received my drop 28DEC17. Left side LEDs died about a week ago (just 3 months of use on my gaming PC with good backup battery). I've tried resetting, unplugging, etc.. It looks like it's just game over for the LED aspect. I've just turned the LEDs off; Far better to have no color than some lopsided failshow. The sound is still fine. Disappointing to have hardware failures in mere months. I guess I'll look into warranty stuff.....

lol this just happened to me, the only light that lights up is the power 1. Even the display doesn't even light up anymore. The RGB is totally dead. SBX light isn't lights up anymore. Bought this on Dec 2017 got it like Dec 25 or something.
Picked one up already when Costco had it for cheaper.

How much?
I committed to this drop at $229.99, but I just remembered that this was being offered at $199.99. Why the $30.00 increase? The last drop wasn't to long ago.
This is a warning for international buyers.
Massdrop can't send this abroad due to it containing a battery (the remote has a battery).
Save yourself the trouble and the charge/refund. Not sure why this drop is enabled internationally.

I went ahead and bought mine a few days ago on Newegg instead, already enjoying it at home.

Sound really is quite loud, could possibly fill a medium living room in a pinch. Great product.

We are you from? As to my knowledge they don't accept other than american credit cards

I think you need an international credit card. Been buying plenty from Massdrop, and others from outside the US have as well.
Does anyone have some EQ profiles that you've found to be really suited for 1) Shooters like PUBG/Overwatch (I wasn't a big fan of the default profiles) and 2) More open world RPGs such as Witcher 3?

Hey there. For me, mindset comes into play. PUBG is very competitive. I wanted a sound profile to accentuate food steps and bullet sounds. The surround sound feature messes with my ability to place sound directions so I turned it down too. I found a profile online which works quite well even if some things sound artificial.

As for immersive RPGs, I'm looking for a realistic sound that draws me into the world, but didn't find any of the profiles really suited for that. A lot sounded a bit tinny for sound effects which weren't coming straight from my character. Potentially weird interaction with the virtual sound channels and how sounds are displayed between games.
Hey! would really love to know if it will ship to United Arab Emirates, because i read elavas comment about not being shipped because of battery :(
First off, let me say that I absolutely love it. IMO, it sounds beautiful; the headphone slot is not as good as my E5 though but still okay.

But something that I want to get off my chest is the fact that I can't switch on the fly between headphones and speakers.
If you plug in headphones it will disable the sound on the sound bar and only play in headphones until you unplug them, like a headphone port on a tv. So much for "doubling as a sound card."

If you're looking for good speakers, this is one, but if you want somewhere to plug in your headphones and/or mic,if you can afford it I suggest you buy yourself a proper dac/amp, otherwise this is okay, you will just have to deal with plugging in and out your headphones in everytime you want to switch between the two.

I make no promises on if your setup is capable of being set up in the same (or a similar) way as mine.
But, what I did to get around this is I plugged my speaker into the front Audio-out port on the case, and my headphones into the audio-out port on the motherboard I/O - I'm sure this could be switched around, just specifics of my setup require it to be like this for me.

But, I get the same audio through both my headphones and a speaker at the same time. Windows doesn't seem to pick up that they're separate ports, but the ROG/Realtek Audio Driver for the mobo can definitely tell somehow.
Wow yer kind of a dick
