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:
Summary: 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. It's a great all-rounder and a bass-heads dream; at the same time, it won't burn too deep a hole in your pocket. What more can you ask for?
Pros: Decent audio quality, Well built, Long cable, Tactic software
Summary: The Sigma is not as a headphone for music enthusiasts. In fact, they sound way different than the other Creative earphones. For gamers however, it makes better sense. The audio module doesn’t do a lot for the headphone. Quality is decent, maybe a tiny bit better than an integrated sound solution on a motherboard but nowhere close to a full-fledged discrete sound card. The Creative Tactic3D Sigma gaming headset sells for a MRP of Rs.5,399.
Excerpt: Creative's THX headsets are widely regarded as some of the best out there, and the Tactic3D Sigma reaffirms that. This offering has everything gamers are looking for in a headset - clear, accurate sound reproduction with THX quality, an adjustable noise-canceling mic, durable construction and a lightweight, comfortable fit.
Excerpt: (1 items) Creative’s $90 Sound Blaster Tactic3D Sigma is one of the best headsets to use if you want to tune out the world around you. Creative claims that the headset’s earphones let you hear sounds from multiple directions, (above, below, and around), so you feel almost fully immersed in sound environments. It does a great job at doing what it promises, though it could produce better bass, and its microphone could be less powerful.
Pros: Excellent surround sound reproduction, Good design
Cons: Microphone seems sensitive to extraneous noise in our testing
Excerpt: It seems that producing an algorithm based surround headset is becoming quite a trend of late with several already having made their way to us for testing over the last few months. Customize your own TacticProfile� EQ and audio profiles, and then export and share them with other gamers. You can also use pre-configured audio settings from world-renowned gamers such as Fatal1ty, compLexity and Team Dignitas.
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. Creative alone has ten different gaming headsets, all at various price points and each one touting a whole slew of features.
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: After the reception of the WoW wireless headset, Creative seems to have taken consumer suggestions to heart. It has created a very respectable headset or set of headphones for that matter. The dual mode operation makes this headset a suitable gift for those needing a descent sound card upgrade and/or a solid gaming and music listening headset.
A nagging issue in our heads is the lack of included software with the headset.
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?
