I hate it.

  • Summary: By Russell Ruth I bought these because of a promotion with a video game I have, and I gotta say-- I hate this headset. The sound quality is somehow bad despite the codecs used-- even my $15 Logitech headset had less static. This headset is also uncomfortably tight after about five minutes of use, especially if you wear glasses. The only thing that's even kind of cool about this headset is that it comes with the attachments to use it for the Xbox.

  • Summary: By Amazon Customer I am having some issues with volume control and mic in volume. I mainly use my headset with Ventrilo for gaming. I've had several people complain that they can't hear me even though I've gone into my settings and adjusted my mic settings. Others hear me just fine. On my end, some people that I"d previously adjusted volumes on needed to be readjusted. A few have to be readjusted frequently. May or may not be related to the headset itself.

Impressed

  • Summary: By John I was looking for a new headset, preferably something under $25. I stumbled upon this headset and was intrigued by it, as it looked decently nicer than the other headsets available for the price. After shipping and what not it only came to $17.50. I purchased the headset and it quickly arrived at my house about 2-3 days later. My impression of it: Has many wires: -wire to plug into the xbox controller of course -A usb wire that plugs into the xbox.

  • Summary: By Wil Conley Don't waste your money on this product! The headphones broke the first week I was using it and Amazon told me to contact the manufacturer which I tried too. I sent them 4 emails (none of them returned), by phone (shuffled around till I got an answering machine) and they never returned any of my calls. Don't waste your money on this crap, your only going to be disappointed in the end.

XBOX only - not for anything else

  • Summary: As an Xbox headset this does the job perfectly. Unfortunately, it also mentions that it can be used with other devices as well which is not really the case. However, the sound is very pleasant and rich and the headset itself is comfortable to wear over long online sessions. However, I must agree with the other reviewers that the packaging was SO frustrating I nearly took a sledgehammer to the whole thing. Surely this can be made a little less human-proof!

  • Summary: Creative Sound Blaster Tactic360 Ion Gaming Headset for Xbox 360 Being a fan of Sound Blaster I was expecting great things but before I get onto the actual product itself, first I must agree with the other reviews already written ... the headset was an absolute nightmare to remove from it's packaging and it was equally difficult to set up (certainly not a plug and play!

Nice idea but slightly flawed

  • Summary: First, put 15 minutes of your time on one side, not for setting up or reading the booklet, but for actually opening the product, The packaging is one of the headrest I have ever had to open, I used scissors and a knife, trying carefully not to cut the cord, and then using brute strength to pull the 2 parts open. When I did finally get the product out the packaging, I have never seen so many wires, I thought it would just go in the USB port but no!

Lower Your Expectations

  • Summary: I've recently seen a couple of gaming headsets land on my desk including the Sennheiser PC 320 Headset and the Tactic3D Wrath both of which impressed me for PC gaming. I was therefore hoping that the Tactic360 would do the same for Xbox gaming and have me putting away my Xbox 360 Headset and Xbox 360 Wireless Headset for good. Sadly it'll be this one that'll be confined to the draw for eternity due to excess cabling, average sound quality and poor build.
