13 December 2014
Summary: By Albert L. Reason for purchase: High Quality wireless headset for my PS4 that doesn't break the bank Outcome: Utter and complete failure. Will not connect to PS 4 with bluetooh I can either use a USB to my PS4 or 4 post connector from controller to headset. Fail Chat audio is mono Can not control chat & game audio separately head set does not have an adjustment for comfort and is too tight causing headaches I would not recommend this to anyone looking to use it for...
Summary: By echofoxtrot First I'd like to say I am a MAJOR audiophile. Major meaning I don't even listen to music (as much as I want to) unless it sounds like crystal and deep but mature bass. Secondly I rate based off things I enjoy and prefer. So my rating of 5 stars for these might be too high for another "audiophile". 1. These are very comfortable to me, yet they aren't as comfortable to my girlfriend. Everyone has a different comfort level for certain things.
Very good sound, great microphone, and not so good cables

Summary: By fatmav Courtesy of the Amazon Vine program, I have received a Sound Blaster EVO Entertainment Wireless Bluetooth Headset for review. This is my third premium (>$100) Bluetooth headset, and so I am already pretty well acquainted with the features and limitations of this product category. Let me walk you through the different aspects. First, a headset has to have good speakers and Sound Blaster really delivers here with a pair of 40mm drivers.
Impeccable Sound For A Wireless, But A Little Less Impressive When Wired

Summary: By K. Harris "Film aficionado" When Creative announced its new Sound Blaster line of headphones, much of the focus was placed on the first products out of the gate: Sound Blaster EVO ZxR and Sound Blaster EVO Zx. These headphones promised a new experience in audio technology with a processor that intelligently enhanced real time usage.
Summary: By Michael J. Descy I am very impressed with these headphones. I wear headphones almost 8 hours a day at work and while I exercise or do grocery shopping. These headphones sound fantastic, have numerous connection options (Bluetooth, USB, audio cable), and are comfortable enough for long stretches of listening. They include a microphone, too, which makes them perfect for pairing with a mobile phone--now I don't have to take my headphones off to answer a quick call.
Summary: I can't really comment on these as they were a gift for someone else, however. I have a pair of EVO zr's and the only difference I can see is the zr's have active noise cancelling and 50mm magnets. If you don't want to spend 250 notes on the zr's, get these instead. Be warned though. I got the zr's specifically for the 50mm magnets. These 40mm are a little small so if you have a big head these smaller ones will quickly become uncomfortable for you.
Summary: Yes, these sound great. I've had Creative headphones before and my experience with those, allied to the price point for this set, meant that I was expecting a decent performance. Rich and full sound reproduction, with (unusual these days) quite restrained bass performance. This means vocals and acoustic instruments become beautifully clear (I love to hear the sound of fingers sliding up a down a guitar's frets).
Summary: Firstly, these have great sound, as you would expect for their RRP. They are in the same quality bracket as Sennheiser which is definitely a first for Creative headphones. The bass is very impressive, and doesn't dominate vocals, even faint whispers are clear. The bluetooth doesn't sound quite as good, I am presuming this is a bitrate limitation, but it works fine and is easy to set up. The only real problem that stops these being perfect is the basic fit.
Summary: The first thing you'll notice about these headphones is the bright red colouring and chunky design. When you take them out of the box you'll also notice the weight of them - these are pretty sturdy headphones and feel heavy compared to some of the lightweight ones that I'm used to, or even ear buds.
