Excerpt: A friend of mine had one, and I was impressed by the quality of his voice mic. I had to do a lot of tweaks in windows, and supreme fx sound on my asus maximus 7 motherboard, to get the headset and mic working. For the price, it is a great buy, but the mic seems to be a little weak.
Excerpt: The headset is great, I could not believe in the quality of this headset! The microfone is very good, even in a stream level. Everything is amazing, you'll not find better quality in the same price range.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Good Sound, Good Volume Control
Summary: I bought these 2 years ago and I used them every now and then for gaming. But now that I'm married these headphones have really become a vital important piece of my life. These are AWESOME at blocking out all noise, amplifying music perfectly, and from the outside, you can't tell that you are blaring music. If you plan on getting married or cohabiting with someone else, or you just want to listen to music privately that sounds amazing, I definitely recommend these.
Summary: The headset itself was fine until it broke. Not the highest quality, but it did the job well. However, it only lasted 6 months before the joint connecting the earphone to the headset snapped, and exposed a wire that eventually broke. My main complaint is the "one year warranty" claim. I contacted the seller about this, and they told me there was nothing they would do, and sent me to the Creative Fatality website.
Excerpt: This headset is very lightweight, comfortable, clear sounding both audio and mic. Use it for music and gaming with Vent. Fits comfortably around the ears, blocks out most background noise. Can be warm since it covers the ears, but I keep the computer room cool anyway so no issues on my end. Great price and great product so far. We'll see how long they last to wear/tear.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Good Sound, Good Volume Control, Lightweight
Summary: I really looked forward to receiving my new headset from Creative. Amazon, as usual, did a great job shipping wise. When the headset arrived, I set to work plugging in in. Took awhile, (a couple of hours) to get the speakers to work. The speakers are fantastic! However, getting the mic to work was an ordeal in it's own right. I spent maybe close to four hours trying to configure the mic to my computer.
Summary: I have had 3 of Creative Fat1al1ty head phones in the past 5 years (between work and home) and this one was the cheapest yet. The headphones work fine, but this broke in under a week of ownership. Luckily I have gorilla glue and I think it will hold, but I shouldn't have to glue it together. I also miss the soft plether cushion rather then the felt cushion.
Excerpt: I bought this headset for playing games like Call of Duty and Titanfall and it is perfect for that. I can hear the enemies footsteps clear as a bell and that gives me the competitive edge. The bass is excellent but the sound level is a little low. This isn't much of a problem, though. I just had to turn the volume up a little. It's very comfortable and the cups fit over my ears instead of on them which is nice and I have rather large ears.
Pros: Clear Signal, Connects Easily, Fits well in ear, Good Sound, Good Volume Control, Lightweight, Long Battery Life, Noise Cancellation
