Impeccable Sound For A Wireless, But A Little Less Impressive When Wired
22 October 2013
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.
Nice sounding headphones, and the wireless features are great!

Summary: By Michael O. I'm kind of a headphone/headset junkie. I own numerous pairs of higher end headphones, and I seem to like each one best for different applications, like high fidelity music at home, or gaming, or paired with an iPod, etc. So I was pretty excited to see the Creative Sound Blaster EVO Bluetooth Wireless headphones show up on Amazon. Surprisingly, with all the headphones I have none are wireless.
Summary: By Kat Yares Okay, I admit I didn't get these for gaming - I got them to talk to the dragon (Dragon Naturally Speaking talk to text software) and they do an awesome job of what I want them to do. Because they are wireless, I can pace the room and still have my spoken thoughts recorded in Word. This makes writing so very, much easier for me (actually doing this review with the headphones on).
Summary: By Gadgetman The Sound Blaster EVO wireless headset serves well for gamer and music lovers with its versatile functions. Here is a list of what I like about this product : - works both as a wireless headset via Bluetooth or direct connection to a PC using either USB or 4-pole analog cables (all included in the box).
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: A good looking pair of over-ear headphones that give a good quality sound via either a standard 3.5mm audio jack or a USB cable. The button built into the right ear works with iPhone/iPod - 1 click to play/pause, 2 clicks to skip forward and 3 clicks to skip backwards. The only disappointment is that the volume dial doesn't do anything at all (at least with my iPhone volume).
Summary: These headphones are an unusual concept as they feature a USB input. This allows one to listen from a computer and apply effects to the audio using software. It also activates a dedicated volume control knob on the headphones themselves. The major limitation of the USB feature is that the volume is limited. I know many people probably listen at dangerously high volumes but I still think the built-in amp should go a bit louder.
Summary: After using the more "premium" version of this headset (EVO Zx) , I was curious to see how much the quality actually differed. To be completely honest, when it comes down to comfort & sound quality(via wire)... they are both exactly the same! The only difference is, these headphones are restricted to be used via wire only; AUX for most audio devices & USB cable for the PC, whereas the Zx has NFC/Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, which also allows a combined use of the...
Summary: Very nice looking and sturdy headphones. Very good sound quality. Not as comfortable as others I have tried. Funky colour scheme. Creative is not a brand I have heard of, but product is good quality This is priced in the mid range and I feel they are good value for money, 4 stars given.
Summary: For a fortnight I've used these and the bigger-brother Evo Wireless model, but out of the two, I want this one. All I want out of a set of cans is some good quality sound for not overly expensive cost, and anything extra comes as a bonus. Go take a look at the wireless version if you like, but for my needs - this is the better model. (I don't' need wireless Bluetooth connections!
