Fantastic sound quality but troubled, short battery life.
23 October 2012
Summary: This headset was fantastic, until it went wrong. All headsets go wrong eventually, of course, and for a while I couldn't see what peoples hate was about. The sound quality was way above its paygrade, the microphone - always the first thing to go wrong - was crystal clear and even the design held up. However, after two months my headset is dead.
Summary: After only 1 week the left earpiece snapped off as was dangling only by the wire. I didn't expect this product to be that "cheap" as Creative normally has good headphones, especially for gamers.
Summary: Reading through previous reviews..I see a theme emerging, my comments sadly continue the theme. Got mine as a present for Xmas 2010, as a WoW player I greatly appreciated the gift, but within 6 months, after they fell off my head(I leaned back in my chair) the left side cup snapped off from the headband. Being a present I had no receipt, so I effected a bodge repair and carried on.
Summary: So, I intend to keep this brief. Wireless Range: The range is alright, it could be better but there are definitely worse headsets out there Sound: The sound quality when I got the headset was very good but deteriorated quickly. Whether due to poor construction or materials, I think some of the internal construction has failed leading to a rattle on some qualities of sound or in higher ranges.
Summary: Pro's: Incredible sound quality, very good microphone quality. Cons: The headset build quality isn't strong enough to withstand any kind of prolonged use. The plastic is INCREDIBLY brittle and will snap if not handled with museum-standard care at all times. The headcups are very heavy due to the technology within, however the plastic extenders are very weak and cannot possibly be expected to handle the headset.
Summary: Disappointed, for the money you spent these things are horribly flimsey. The sliding plastic tabs for the head adjustment broke on either side, and had I not thrown the box, I'd have returned these. Attempted to fix with glue and tape, but it isn't worth the money. Admitantly when it is working, it's very fun, great sound, great clarity on the mic, but the above issue renders it null and void. Frankly I will be using my old wired headphones of 2 years.
