Auto Mute and Two-way Noise Cancellation for Conference Calls

Really, communications shouldn’t be this complicated. Instead of fussing over mute controls or being distracted by unwanted background noises, you should really be focusing on your work and ideas.

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.

Make Your Audio Go Further

On top of all the software features, Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 also comes with an EQ button with 2 sound modes—Dynamic and Bass Boost—that works great with any type of content—music, movies, and even games!

Better Than Your Default Audio

On the back of everything is what we do best—audio quality. Powered by high-resolution audio with a 192 kHz / 24-bit DAC and delivering clean audio clarity at 110 dB, you will never go back to the default audio on your PC again.

Really Easy to Carry Round

Extremely lightweight (8.3g / 0.29 oz) and super portable, you can carry the Sound Blaster PLAY! 4 around with you everywhere you go—whether you are hot-desking or moving from location to location.

Communicate Smarter with SmartComms Kit

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 their respective manufacturer’s implementation.

VoiceDetect—Mute and Unmute Yourself Automatically

Our VoiceDetect feature controls your mute status by voice detection as you speak—your microphone gets muted automatically when you stop speaking, and unmutes you instantly as you start speaking. There is absolutely no need to fiddle with any buttons—physical or in-app—so you can on track with your train of thought during the pitch. If you need to talk to someone on the side, disable the VoiceDetect feature temporarily by manually pressing on the physical mic mute button, and reactivate the VoiceDetect feature by pressing on the same button.

Solid Red LED on Mic Mute Button: Mic Muted + VoiceDetect disabled

LED Off on Mic Mute Button: Mic Unmuted + VoiceDetect enabled

VoiceDetect requires your default microphone button to be unmuted in order for it to work. When unmuted, it will assume control over your microphone’s outgoing audio to automatically unmute when you speak, and mute when you stop.

NoiseClean—Two-way Noise Cancellation

Noise is the enemy of all calls—whether it’s happening in our surrounding or coming from our co-workers—it’s equally disruptive. But what if it is your colleague’s background noise that’s driving you insane? We have the perfect fix with our NoiseClean features that reduces static background noises from both ends—incoming and outgoing audio—of the conversation.

NoiseClean-in analyzes your incoming audio (imagine a colleague with a noisy background in your video call), detecting and suppressing the unwanted noises, before sending just your colleague’s clean voice to you through your headphones.

NoiseClean-out does the same—but for your own background noise.
