Not bad

Rick, B&H Photo
23 September 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: Good Sound, Good Volume Control

YMMV, Causes Ear Pain & Stopped Working After 2 Years

Rixatrix, Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought two of these gaming headsets for myself and my husband in August of 2009. The Fatal1ty Gaming Headset did the job well enough, with little issue (occasionally my husband had microphone problems, but I did not), other than our ears hurting. The part that goes over the ears causes the back of your ears to hurt after extended wear (about 1 hour for me, 2 hours for him).

Broke within 6 months.

P. Lam, Amazon
21 February 2009
  • Summary: So I purchased this headset at the end of September 2008 and it recently just died on me. The left side of my headset stop working. It was probably my fault for dropping it 2 feet onto my wooden floors a few times. Prior to it being broken, the software that came with the headset had a problem being compatible with Ventrilo. Something about Microsoft Ann. I fixed it by disabling the X-Fi CMSS-3D under none other than the X-Fi CMSS-3D header options.

Hot Ears

Simon Kelly, Amazon
7 February 2009
  • Summary: Sound fidelity is very good for this product, particularly for gamers. However as a general purpose headset bear the the following points in mind: 1) Too big and easily damaged to haul from home to office - even though comes with nice carrying case 2) Removing the mike for such an excursion is not a good option - getting it fully connected and seated is a matter of trial and error 3) Ear pads are comfortable but super snug and ears rapidly become over heated in warm...

Reasonably good headphones, bad microphone

E. Silver, Amazon
10 October 2008
  • Summary: The headphones are adequate, but not significantly different from other headsets that I own. I purchased this headset to have a Vista-compatible USB microphone, but the microphone picks up so much ambient noise that you have to speak at full volume in order to talk over the din. Also, Creative forces you to "register" your hardware to download drivers or use their software.

Not as good as some reviews seem to make out.

Daniel Powell, Amazon
31 August 2014
  • Summary: The sound quality is above average which is surprising considering the price. I'd even go as far as to say these sound better than the turtle beach PX22's or the PC Z series, which cost £80! However, sound quality is about the only thing this headset has going for it. You are probably thinking, come on bro, it's a headset and sound quality is all we need! Wrong. The mic on this headset is awful, I lost count as to the amount of times people said I sounded muffled.

Decent quality, poor durability

Sophie Hughes, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: Bought this headset 7 months ago for gaming, skyping and general use. When it first arrived, I was pleased with it's comfort (relative to its price). The sound is good quality, not at all tinny as some have reviewed it to be, however it is rather quiet. I have had a few problems with the mic, however these problems are easily resolved with a different configuration and are usually my own fault so I would not fault the mic, though considering the other reviews I am a very...

Works well, but...

Andrew, Amazon
22 November 2013
  • Summary: Bought it a few months back. It's good for blocking out noise, good sound quality, but it seems that it can't take much damage. It's taken a few short falls, and the sound's getting a little problematic. The wire has to be positioned in a certain way, or else the left ear begins to cut out or get crackly.

Mic

Schoua Sloan, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: The noise cancelling mic wasn't as expected, i thought it would cancel more of the background noise out more than it should
