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: No other headphone has surprised me in the manner that the Tactic 3D managed to.
I originally purchased them because I needed headphones to do a Skype interview, and I wanted something kind of ridiculous and flashy, because I was going to be on video.
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.
Excerpt: Although we have tested several outstanding audio products from Creative Labs in the past, this is the first Gaming Headset we have seen from the company; part of a new line dubbed 'Tactic 3D'.
Excerpt: The Creative Tactic 3D Sigma has big boots to fill. We loved its predecessor, the Creative Sound Blaster Arena, so much that it walked away with a Premium Grade award and a Labs test victory. No pressure then.
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?
