Summary: These headphones are awesome! The sound really blows your mind, great for music or gaming and Skyping too. The surround sound sometimes give me goosebumps, especially when I'm using them for Isochronic or Binaural beats meditation techniques. They work well to keep my husband from disturbing me with his games and he says they are awesome too. Really Fast Ship, it is worth every penny and a it's a good deal too!
Summary: By WhatISayHasMerit These have a really bad flaw in them, in that the place where they're extendible to fit your head is made of a brittle plastic that easily fatigues and eventually snaps, leaving the speakers dangling and broken. I managed to fix one side (right) with epoxy, and the other side gave out about 3 months later. The left side didn't take as well to the epoxy unfortunately, and broke once again very shortly.
Summary: This is the best headset I've personally ever owned. I wear glasses, so it's hard to find a comfortable, affordable headset. The sound quality is amazing, and I'm sure it would be even better if I had a Creative sound card to go with it. The one and only thing that bothered me about this headset, is the boom mic cover slips off easily, and refuses to stay on. In fact I've already lost it. Update 1/19/14 - Still in great condition!
Summary: By Ciaran *See bottom of review to see why I downgraded my review to three stars* Allow me to begin by saying that as things stand, this is a 3.5 star product. I really do love certain things about it, however there are some caveats I am finding hard to ignore. Comfort: This is a very comfortable headset to wear for long periods of time. I have found that both long video-editing sessions and long gaming sessions have led to little discomfort.
Summary: By Ryan This is a very nice headset. I would Highly reccommend it. Here are some Pros and Cons: 1. Sound quality- The sound from this headset is amazing. I can't stress that enough. I was blown away from how good the sound was when listening to music, watching movies, or playing games. 2. Surround sound- The 3D sound is really cool and works really well. While playing Skyrim, I spun around while someone was talking and I could hear their voice rotating around my head. 3.
Summary: By ! MR. KNOW IT ALL ;-b "DR SHOCK" This headset is very comfortable providing impressive sound and durability. It's price point makes it an excellent value. While I was very happy with its performance, but as another reviewer pointed out, the software updater isn't user friendly. Still a great headset for the price.
Summary: By Gail K. Powers "Abra" Installation of the drivers was time consuming, but was worth it. My pc has lousy sound, but this bypasses the sound card and is amazing. The range of sound is diverse and when gaming almost a little creepy. I hear things before I see anything which is cool, but was surprising at first. Ditto for when I am listening to music. The sounds are crisp and you can pick up the nuances present in what you are listening to.
Summary: By Reformed Library "Reformed Library" Great! I wasn't very impressed until I ran the program. I installed the driver, but when I opened up the Alpha Control Panel I could change how I sound over the mic, but they gave us a chance to adjust a lot more. Very good options. The cans rotate a little on the horizontal plane and are very flexible. There is no problem finding a comfortable fit. I like the cushion on the top strap. Very good comfort.
Summary: By VideoGameFanatic I play all sorts of video games, chat on skype with my friends, and enjoy listening to music. Before I bought this headset, I went through probably 10 other headsets, from all kinds of companies. No headset provided the comfort that the Alpha does. I can wear the headset all day, and not have an ache.
Summary: By A. Yue I've had my Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Alpha's for about two weeks now and couldn't be more pleased. I've use them everyday putting them through various field tests involving videogames, music, and movies. This headset has passed all my tests with flying colors. In games you can hear absolutely everything and can pinpoint your enemies' locations thanks to the stellar 3D surround sound. The same goes for movies.
