Creative Technology has equipped the Sound Blaster GC7 with a USB Type-C connector, a 3.5 mm 3-pole mic-in, a 3.5 mm 4-pole headset-in and 3.5 mm line-in/line-out connections. Additionally, the DAC has optical input and output connections. 

The Sound Blaster GC7 is also compatible with PC, Mac, Nintendo Switch PS4 and PS5. The DAC has many customisable options, along with two large dials for altering in-game and microphone volumes. Creative Technology insists that the DAC can be operated with one hand, should you need to make quick adjustments when gaming or streaming.

Creative sells the Sound Blaster GC7 for US$169.99, but the DAC is available outside of the US, too. The Sound Blaster GC7 is shipping now and comes with free shipping.
