Not worth it's price

Summary: When ordering this card I was very excited for all the connections that were possible. I had intended to plug the 5.1 output into my Logitech surround, the optical input from my PS3/4 and optical output to Tritton headset. I had the intentions of either running output to the 5.1 or the headset, and having input from either the computer or the Playstation. This was not the case at all.
If you are buying this for Dolby Digital Live, Please Read

Summary: By D. Henderson Yes this card can output Dolby Digital 5.1 through the optical. Your receiver will recognize the signal and you'll get a decent surround sound experience. However, if you are someone who HATES out of sync sound and video avoid this card. There is a 100ms delay ( google it ) between the video on the screen ( your game ) and the audio you hear. This is due to the encoding and then decoding that the sound card and your receiver is having to do.
Summary: First off I'm going to point out that the newer model which is retailing for £200+ is far too expensive for this product. The overall quality is superb and deserves a reasonably high price tag, the £150-160 mark is probably as high as you want to shell out for these; sadly the great sound does come at a price (not just on your wallet) but to comfort.
Summary: The sound of the headset was really good and considering that you need no extra soundcard for this headset makes it very attarctive for people who only have on board sound. However after three days it already didn't work anymore. The USB sound card did not glow when you boot up and the headset could not connect to it anymore. I think this is the last time that i bought a creative product because i already had bad experience in the past with other creative products.
Poor build quality, uncomfortable ear cups after a period of time

Summary: When i first received this product, I thought it was great. The sound quality was by far the best i had heard with all the additional features allowing u to change the sound to your preference (Sound Blaster Recon3D Control Panel). The Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D External Sound Card word as expected and I had no issues with.
Summary: I read quite a lot of views before purchasing this headset and sound card combo. I'm increasingly playing more games online so thought that I should get a dedicated headset. I usually just use Sennheiser 595s for gaming and music. The good, I guess they are sturdy and well packaged and the blue LEDs are pretty nice. The software included when it worked was pretty good, easy to use and comprehensive. The bad, the headset was just too big for my head.
Sound Blaster Recon3D - a cunning marketing promotion

Summary: Myself a big music enthusiast and 3D shooter maniac, playing usually on a laptop, it has been quite essential to get a sound card that was capable of providing a good 3D sound. Three years ago I bought the Sound Blaster X-FI USB and a year later the Sound Blaster X-Fi Notebook Sound Card and now the Recon3D USB. My impression is that the 3D sound provided by the Sound Blaster X-Fi has been superior in most games I have played in the past.
Summary: Nachdem ich mittlerweile das 3te haben . Das erste ist einfach so verreckt. Das 2te ging nur noch alle 3 mal einstecken und das 3te geht jetzt endlich .. Der Sound ist klasse .. zum zocken auch super geignet .. Allerdings ist jetzt beim 3ten die linke Ohrmuschel abgefallen .. weil das einfach ganz müllig ineinander gesteckt wird. Fazit ..
Summary: habe mir das headset von ALB Computer bestellt. -lieferung war nicht so schön... 7 tage sind heutzutage zu viel!!! -verpackung: naja, kiste in kiste ohne schutz.... so nu zum headset (kurzfassung): vorweg: ich bin verwöhnt von meinem Tritton AX PRO... wollte aber mal ein kabelloses headset gönnen. also ausgepackt und angeguckt...
Summary: Ich habe den Kopfhörer gebraucht gekauft und damit ein "Schnäppchen" gemacht. Jedoch ist dieses "Schnäppchen" ein schlechtes "Schnäppchen" wegen folgender Punkte : - miserabel Qualität (Stoff am Mikro löst sich nach einiger Zeit, Ohrmuschen auch, wirkt insgesamt nicht sehr hochwertig) - Die Soundqualität ist eher Durchschnitt - eingebauter Akku + Der Empfang hat kaum Verzögerung mehr als 2 Sterne auf Grund der doch verzögerungsfreien Übertragung sind leider nicht drin.
