TRAVIS M., Newegg

  • Summary: Just a poorly built set of headphones. Audio came through fine when using the USB adapter, but the MIC never worked properly unless plugged into the 3.5 jack directly on the motherboard or front panel.
  • Pros: Look Nice Comfortable Decent Sound Quality
  • Cons: Cheaply Built Break Easily USB Connector Doesn't work with Mic

Creative Labs

Timothy T., Newegg
6 September 2012
  • Summary: Creative Labs technical support is not very good their number is no longer in service. Their email support is very slow and unresponsive they try and blame the problem on the system rather then it being their hardware when I gave them all the necessary details about the problem.
  • Pros: -High definition sound -Adjustable microphone -Good noise cancellation with both microphone and headset -Long cord -Loud and full bass
  • Cons: -Cord is very flimsy -Microphone static/cutting out -Audio goes out if you move the cable -Microphone will completely go out then come back

disappointing

Edward S., Newegg
23 August 2012
  • Summary: had I known the cord would have become such a tangled mess and would later inadvertently brake the things, I would have asked the store clerk to take the cursed headset off the shelf so future buyers would not make the same mistake
  • Pros: decent sound quality
  • Cons: -really uncomfortable on ears -probably the thing I hated most was the "flat cable non tangle design". The cable is a total piece of **** that started to tangle on me the first week of ownership. After a month of the tangling getting progressively worse, I tried to straighten the cord somewhat bu...

Broken after 4-5 months

David W., Newegg
19 August 2012
  • Summary: It was very dissappointing to me for this to happen. I was unable to get a phone number to work for creative's support line. I was able to fill out an online RMA form and got a response to send the proof of purchase for return (which I had already included in the online RMA form).
  • Pros: I really enjoyed these headphones as my first set of gaming headphones. Good sound with good base.
  • Cons: After using these for a few months the microphone was very soft. I use with the volume on the mic turned all the way up and still very soft. I have upgraded the FW but still not much help. Eventually with a friends suggestion, I was able to wrap masking tape around the pickup hole of the mic boom...

Alexis L., Newegg

  • Summary: Purchased from B&M retail store.
  • Pros: Very good sound quality for the price.
  • Cons: Unfortunately, the good sound quality is the only redeeming feature. I gave this headset 1 star because it really is a waste of your money. It will break down on you soon or later, whether you take care of it or not. It is very cheaply made and the fact that Creative does not cover "physical dama...

Poor quality build, bad customer service

william s., Newegg
22 May 2012
  • Summary: I loved this headset. The refusal to help from creative and the shoddy quality means i will not be buying from them again. Which is a shame as this is their fourth headset i have used.
  • Pros: The sound quality is excellent. Deep bass, decent hi's and great surround. One of my favorite headsets
  • Cons: After about 6 months the sliders cracked, then one broke entirely. Leaving the cup dangling. They were made o too thin a plastic, meaning any normal use would most likely cause them stress, if they were extended. I contacted their customer support and even after explaining, with pictures. They ma...

Terrible.

Shawn O., Newegg
10 January 2012
  • Summary: All in all.. not worth half the price tag on this. The design is just poor, and the mic quality is terrible. This is, by far, the worst headset I've owned in terms of microphone quality and earpiece static from rubbing on clothing, shifting on your head, etc.
  • Pros: Sound quality was't bad.
  • Cons: Where to start.. The microphone durability is garbage. I literally no more than took it out of the box, plugged it in and spoke one line and the foam fell off. Granted, the foam isn't a big deal, but nevertheless it reflects the quality of the product. It shouldn't fall off immediately.. The micr...

Junk with no warranty

James K., Newegg
6 January 2012
  • Summary: Get a better product.
  • Pros: Sleek and good sound
  • Cons: I have never seen a more lame product in my life, after a month of careful use all the wires became frayed, and it refused to function. After sending my copy of the receipt to Creative Labs five times, they finally let me send it in for a warranty replacement. LOL - I get an Email back after 5 we...
