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
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
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?
Summary: Unterm Strich liefert Creative mit dem Tactic3D Sigma ein preiswertes und gut klingendes Headset für Gamer ab. Selbst im Bereich „Surround-Sound“ macht das Stereo-Headset eine ordentliche gute Figur. Darüber hinaus sprechen Verarbeitungsqualität, Tragekomfort und Mikrofon für unser Testmuster. Der günstige Preis von nur knapp 40 Euro (man bedenke die im Lieferumfang enthaltene USB-Soundkarte!
Pros: gute Verarbeitungsqualität, angenehmes Gewicht, Klangeigenschaften, Sprachqualität, hoher Tragekomfort, Mikrofon lässt sich abnehmen, viele praktische Funktionen in der Software, USB-Soundkarte im Lieferumfang enthalten, langes und frustfreies Kabel
Cons: sehr basslastig, unübersichtliche Software, nur bedingt geeignet für Leute mit großen Ohren
Summary: Lyden i de to tettsittende hodeklokkene er både rund og balansert, men til musikk skulle vi gjerne hatt en mer klart definert bass – det er klare tendenser til grums. Det er lett å ta mikrofonen av headsettet når du ikke vil bruke den, og den gir klar tale fra deg og til mottakeren. Med USB-lydkortet kan du gjøre ytelsen til settet helt uavhengig av den f.eks. ofte tvilsomme lyden i bærbare pc-er. Og lydkortet virker med en gang det settes i USB-porten.
