  • Summary: pure garbage. it does NOT support soundfonts or midi, like ALL prior SB products do, and when I installed the updates, the computer would not boot. Just a bios error beep. This product is also discontinued...I'm not surprised.

Creative is no more... Time to move on!

  • Summary: I've owned the X-Fi Platinum Champion for close to 6 years. I've held on to the card and refused to trade it off simply because it came with everything I need. 5.1 in the back, SPID/F and RCA in the front, I had all of my gadgets plugged in, sound bit-matched at 24-bit 192k/Hz. Life was good.

DO NOT BUY!

Fagol, Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: These come with faulty firmware preloaded that cannot be changed (Results in firmware upgrade error). No microphone volume Up/Down controls which means game audio and mic audio is unbalanced. Wireless syncing issues. It's not worth the hassle. I bought it for £99 brand new direct from Amazon. I thought it was a bargain. Boy was I wrong.

Extremely disappointed having to give a review like this.

Alan, Amazon

  • Summary: 2nd set of Creative headphones that have needed to be returned in a space of 2 weeks. Once they worked they were amazing so very disappointed sitting having to advise people to stay away from these. 1st died within an hour of having them - this set needed to have the wireless unit re-flashed daily to get them to work.

Meh.

PiXiL "PiXiL", Amazon

  • Summary: I sent it back and got a refund as the sound quality was pretty shocking and the damn controller was broken anyway. Best thing I ever did as for the same price I was able to pick up an audiophile quality sound card and some high-end headphones instead. I've also come to realise that Creative Soundblaster products are usually cheap gimmicky stuff anyway now.

Repeated fault involving complete loss of power - be warned!

ALtheMAN, Amazon
24 July 2013
  • Summary: I'm currently on my THIRD Creative Soundblaster Recon3d Omega Wireless Gaming Headset. The first one proved faulty - the USB receiver/transmitter failed to power-up after limited use (apparently a problem encountered by a significant number of others). It was well within the warranty period and Amazon.co.uk replaced it for me. The second one proved faulty in that the left ear cushion came away for no apparent reason and they are impossible to replace.

rubbish

Birdy, Amazon

  • Summary: had these for xmas after breaking my turtle beach headphones a couple of months back. And IMO the creatives are utter crap, which is surprising for such a reputable company and also surprising since T3 mag gave these headphones a glowing review. for a start they arent loud enough maximum setting on the volume on an xbox 360 is "sedate" to say the least. i want grenades to sound like grenades rather than a fart in a bath.
