To kick off this collab, and HUGE thanks to Creative Labs, we’re giving away one (1) ZenFone 2 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage model AND one (1) Creative Labs Soundblaster E5 audio DAC! You can also check out our article on how the ZenFone 2 can be an audiophile’s dream with the Creative Labs Sound Blaster E5 audio DAC.

ASUS x Creative Labs Audiophile Giveaway


  1. I love Asus products! Every single one I have used so far has been flawless in my eyes, and I’d love to try out an Asus phone, especially their top of the line device! I consider myself to be an audiophile anyway, and the creative labs DAC would be a dream to own with a phone, nevermind a phone like this!

  2. This definitely seems like a great combo! Pair this up with some mobile DJ software and you could build your own portable DJ setup! Also thank you so much for the giveaway.

  3. I would love to win this giveaway because it would be amazing to have am audio DAC and even if I won a Zenfone (already have one) I would give it to my sister.

  4. This would be an amazing combo to show off the true power and features of the ZenFone2. Asus is the way to go, say no to Samsung and Apple.

  5. With my high-frequency hearing loss from 6 years on a US Army tank I need all the help I can get trying to hear music as it was meant to be heard!

  6. This would be right up my alley because I’m a true lover of all kinds of music, music is good part of my life.

  7. I need either of these to enhance my audio listening experience. It would go well with my Sony MDR-7506 headphones to help me hear music like it was meant to be heard.

  8. I love quality sound whether it is in gaming or listening to music. Hearing the subtle nuances in music is as important to enjoying music as hearing somebody trying to walk up behind you in game.

  9. I love Asus products. I have a K53E laptop that’s very reliable, and have been wanting a Zenfone 2 for quite a while. Now this combo would be a great thing for me as I have no tablet nor decent cell phone right now. If I had my choice I’d REALLY want a Zenfone 2 Deluxe Special Edition that came out in Brazil with 256gb of storage And the Zenfone Max’s 5000 mah battery. But this giveaway is so sweet I’d love to get these. Thanks so much for the chance.

  10. I’ve never used a device like this. I love music but having something like this to pair with my Zenfone 2 could REALLY boost my enthusiasm for taking my music on the go.

  11. I listen music on big speakers with amplifier for rest of my life. Source was vinyl, when CD, when… again vinyl. We inventing mp3 and small devices what can play compressed music, but what about quality? Maybe this combo – ZenFone and E5 audio DAC – can return positive answer on my question? 🙂

  12. I’m an audiophile because I grew up in it, my dad was obsessed with music, owning thousands of CDs, spending every weekend in the used record shop, he booked and promoted for a local music hall. Now I would love to carry on his love for music, but lack the equipment to really do so.

    • It’s an amazing story to hear…I myself am not an audiophile, but we definitely have people at ASUS who are that crave that high-quality sound. Best of luck on the contest!

  13. I currently enjoy my music through an old but trusted Klipsch x10 with comply foam tips. This bundle would be a much appreciated upgrade to my setup! : ) Thanks!

  14. Honestly didn’t even realize that Creative Labs was still around, but I use to swear by their headphones and few of their mp3 players in the past./

  15. I love having upgraded sound available to my tunes. My music varies from 60/70/80’s Rock, Classic Country and new country. Also love the Classicals, so the better the sound the more I’ll enjoy it.
    I would love to have this as my new phone.

  16. Because I love listening to music anytime and anywhere. I need this package to release stress at work and be entertainment during the holidays.

  17. Being a 100%VA disabled Vet I tend to have plenty of time. I am a spinal cord injury survivor. I had read an article recently about the Creative Labs headphone amp and the FLAC player and was blown away. The majority of my time is listening to music off my phone. Not only would a rig like this be a God send…. but it would be pretty slick too! 🙂

    • I’m sorry to hear about your injury! That must have been really tough to overcome, and I congratulate you on that. I wish you the best on the contest!

  18. Since loosing all the hearing in my right ear, after having a tumor removed back in March 2015, I have been constantly looking for ways to improve my listening experience. I would love an opportunity to see how well these two products could help me. I so miss being able to listen to my music and videos!!

    • I’m sorry to hear that you had to go through that experience. Best of luck on the contest, and I hope we can provide that great audio experience for you!

  19. Why I’m an audiophile? Because I love music! I mean real music that deserve to be listening on quality equipment. And I’m so crazy that I will carry with myself external DAC if it will improve the quality of music) Do not doubt that the ZenFone 2 can output amazing sound (FLAC only).

  20. I would actually set up a station at our performances where fans could listen to high quality clips of our music while buying cds, merch, etc.

  21. As someone who loves listening to music, but can’t afford to buy a nice DAC this would be awesome to win. Pairing it with a ZenFone 2 (which I’ve also been interested in) would be even better.

  22. I wonder just how much better the Creative Labs Soundblaster E5 audio DAC can make my Monster Carbon MVP headset sound. They already sound great. Mostly, I need that Android device. I have a Windows Phone. Love the hardware, hate the marketplace.

  23. My zune and old fiio heaphone amp are a bit out of date, my phone is also a brick, would love these two.

    I also use Asus Motherboards!

  24. This phone looks simply amazing, the specs and the design as well. I also own other Asus products, graphics cards, monitor and laptops as well.

  25. Amazing phone both spec wise and the design. I also own other Asus products such as graphic cards, monitors and laptops.

  26. Seems pretty awesome, to me the audio from the phone’s headphone jack has always sounded good enough, I would love to get one to see and compare the difference.

  27. Sounds amazing. Ba-Dum-Tiss
    Speaking seriously now, I’ve taking an interest on following up that tutorial for quite some time but I wasn’t sure since I only have one Zenfone 2 available.
    That’s a great opportunity to try it out!

  28. I just sent my entry comment and also just reading other comments here I realize how much I wanted the Zenfone 2 and Creative Labs Soundblaster E5 audio DAC giveaway because my entry sounds too passionate/serious! hahaha dang,.. now I”m turning red.
