Experience superior audio quality with the Creative Stage SE! Decked out with powerful full-range racetrack drivers and oversized radiators, this under-monitor soundbar is able to reproduce clearer and punchier audio reproduction, even without a subwoofer. With a peak power of 48W, this nifty soundbar is capable of creating sound that is of much higher quality than regular Bluetooth soundbars. Talk about an upgrade!


The Creative Stage SE is armed with Sound Blaster's audio technologies—Clear Dialog and Surround, providing you with improved vocal intelligibility and wide surround experience in an instant. Enjoy a cinema-like experience at the comfort of your own home, and focus on your screen without having to depend on subtitles.


Complete your immersive movie experience with our Surround technology, powered by Sound Blaster to deliver a wider soundstage to your media! It is capable of identifying and enhancing the spatial information of incoming audio via Sound Blaster's audio filters, thereby optimizing the listening experience for both two-channel and multi-channel source content. The result is expanded soundstage and spatialized audio from any type of audio source, including Netflix, HBO, and Amazon Prime Video, providing you with a more realistic and comfortable listening experience akin to cinemas.


It's great when your movie or game comes with rich and immersive audio, but it's a total downer if the dialog gets drowned out amongst the explosive sound effects and music. Clear Dialog extracts the vocals and spoken dialog through an algorithm, then intelligently enhances and amplifies them, allowing you to hear each syllable clearly, and without compromising on the other ambient effects.


Switch between warmer and brighter audio reproduction with our new feature, Tone Adjustment. Now you can tune and adjust tone neutrality on the Creative Stage SE with a press of a button!

Warmer sounds:
Tilts towards bass frequencies, with the bass and vocals becoming more prominent. Higher frequencies are quieter and subdued, leaving you with a warm and soothing audio.

Bright sounds:
This tone reproduces better high-pitched sounds, leaving you with crisp and clear audio.



The Creative Stage SE is powered via a power adapter and supports both USB digital audio and Bluetooth. Simply connect your devices to the Creative Stage SE using the provided USB-C to USB-A cable, and you're good to go! You can also stream wirelessly from your mobile devices with the latest Bluetooth 5.3, and enjoy music at your desk or while lounging on your sofa across the room!


For PC users, the soundbar will be automatically detected when you plug in the USB cable.

If you have multiple audio devices connected to your PC, you can also manually select Creative Stage SE as the default output speaker in the 'Sound' setting.

For Mac users, select “Stage SE” as your output via System Settings.

Click on Apple menu > System Setting, click Sound, then click Output to select 'Stage SE'.



Sporting a sleek black design with glossy finish, the Creative Stage SE easily matches any desk setup and fit snuggly under the monitor. Plus, with the integrated volume control knob located at the side of the soundbar, it's easy to make quick sound adjustments on the fly.


The satisfyingly large knob allows you to manually turn on or off the soundbar, switch between USB and Bluetooth mode, and adjust the volume.


Whereas the remote control* offers a lot more features such as play/pause, mute, tone adjustment, and activating Surround and Clear Dialog modes.

Expert Reviews

The Creative Stage SE is a compact and affordable soundbar designed to sit below your monitor and improve the audio quality of your PC or laptop. It’s a little limited on the connectivity front and not without some minor audio and design niggles, but you’ll struggle to find a better PC soundbar for the money.

5/5 stars

Creative Stage SE



If you’re looking for an affordable soundbar to complement your computer set up, it’s harder to find something that works as well as this and as affordable. Just, don’t use it for music much. Stick to movies and games and you’ll have a much better experience.

Creative Stage SE



As a budget-friendly soundbar, the Creative Stage SE packs quite a punch in the audio department.

Customer Reviews


Good speaker, quality product as I expected from Creative. Nice bass. I like Plug in connectivity instead of battery powered. It lacks 3.5 mm jack connectivity.

J. M. Jessen

Love it - could use a bit better bass and some how to be able to see what is turned on and how the eq/soundspace is set instead of having to reset and dialnin settings or maybe just 3 presets you could use as starting points

S. K. S

Very compact. Sound Blast is good. Worth the money.
