TechBargains Review - Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma Headset
17 April 2014
Summary: We were pleasantly surprised by the Sigma -- once we were able to get it working. Again, be aware that you may need to rely upon patches and support forums to alleviate possible driver freezes with your machine, and you may run into some interference issues if you've got a lot of equipment nearby.
Pros: Comfortable Headset:, Great Sound:, Very Responsive Mic:, Customizable Settings:, Multiple Presets of Headset Volume:
Excerpt: The Tactic 3D Sigma is slap bang in the middle of Creative's Tactic line-up and does a great job at that position. We’re hard pressed to think of a set that can rival this one at this price making this a worthy purchase.
Excerpt: The Sound Blaster Tactic3D Sigma is part of Creative’s “Tactic” line-up of gaming headsets. These headsets are geared specifically towards gaming. They feature support for THX TruStudio Pro, 3D surround (virtual) and VoiceFX.

Excerpt: If you are a hardcore gamer, then wearing a headset is nothing new – you’ve probably had one for years. For those just now getting into the gaming scene, hold onto your pants because there are literally 80 or 90 headsets to choose from, coming from several different manufacturers.
Pros: Comfortable to wear, 3D directional audio works well, Very customizable
Cons: Construction is a little flimsy, Muddy, flat bass, Software is not included, has to be downloaded
Summary: Creative and Sound Blaster are longtime name brands when it comes to personal computer sound products and recently it has been diversifying even more. One the heels of its WoW headset, now comes the Tactic 3D Sigma. Worth your hard earned money?
Excerpt: Creative have attacked the mid-range headset market with the lower-spec Alpha 3D, and the unit we're evaluating today, the Sigma 3D.
Pros: Large, powerful 50mm drivers, comfortable headband and cans, well designed lead and volume controls. Software is fully-featured, and the noise-cancellation microphone offers clear sound without excess background interference.
Cons: For the price, they still feel a little too cheap in construction. The unlockable functionality at the mercy of Creative's riddle department is a little unnerving. Foam microphone cover will fall off and get lost within the first week. Why do we have to download the software?
