Nice Job CreativeMar 09, 2008
By Jordan Hamilton
This is one of those headsets that you hear about then decide, "Hey, I'm gonna buy this cause its a good deal!!" Seeing this headset for 39 dollars really made me buy it. Before I had spent a long time deciding on the brand and what type, then I saw this am impulsively bought it. Afterwards I had second thoughts, but that quickly changed.
Opening the box, the packaging is beautiful as is the headset itself. The color scheme and decoration is wonderful. Of course, I could care less as long as it sounds good. I work a lot with sound... From having a 2000 dollar sound system in my car, to buying a Bose speaker set for my TV. I bought this on a wim, so I didn't think about spending much money. Plugging it in, and pulling the headset on I realized two things. One, the volume control and mic on/off switch was perfectly placed. Its far enough down to be out of the way, but close enough to be in reach all the time. Two, how my ears fit into the muffs. My head and ears are larger then normal so comfort was important. I started off playing various types of music. These headphones really handle well. Unlike other reviews, I have found the volume very adequate. The highs are high, mids are clearly distributed, and the bass low and precise. Playing games was also enjoyable. The headset performed well with explosions and shots going off. I was very impressed by how well it responded overall.
The mic was pretty good as well. Overall, I was impressed. In games, I never had anyone tell me that my mic was fuzzy or distorted. Voice recordings sounded very good as well. I use Skype on occasion, and this is where I found trouble. Some of my voice was distorted when I did test calls. Also, it sounded pretty muddy on the Skype recordings. I am almost positive that this was a Skype config error or a Skype error in entirety. I love the detachable mic boom, because it gave me room to move and if I just want to listen to music it works beautifully.
Comfort is another area. I can't however, speak to much for others because I have a big noggin. Putting on the headset is comfortable and my ears fit well into the muffs. I cannot speak very accurately about comfort over long periods due to my uncommon head size but.... I can say that it does irritate me slightly. It actually feels good to take the headset off every once in awhile to let the ears breath. Although, I have to say while playing I experience no discomfort and actually forget that I'm wearing a headset. Not the most comfortable thing when taken off, but overall not as bad as some.
Overall this headset is worth every penny. It delivers clear sound and mediocre comfort. I mostly bought this headset for sound quality, so, I was very pleased with my order. The microphone is more then fine for me, so all works. I would highly recommend this headset because of the price, quality, and looks. Good work Creative.

Cannot order a replacement microphoneMay 19, 2009
By Brandon J. Wagoner
the quality is pretty good for the price. I bought mine in mid October and the microphone has already stopped working. I cannot seem to be able to find a replacement. Since the microphone is detachable I thought it would be easily replaceable.

Very Nice ProductFeb 05, 2008
By Eric J
These headphones are of excellent quality. Despite some previous reviews, the volume is excellent. There is a built-in volume and mic on/off switch on the cord, which is quite useful.
These headphones do a good job of centering all sound to you, rather than to everyone else in the room. I can listen to loud games, without bothering anyone else nearby.
Although I am not a very big music critic, these headphones don't distort the sound as some other gaming headsets do. The quality is actually quite nice.
The microphone is longer than some others that I have seen, and it is removable. It does exactly what it says, blocks out other sounds (including the sounds of what you are listening to). The cord is also plenty long.
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase.

Decent headset for the price, fairly uncomfortableAug 19, 2008
By Jeremy Chadwick
This headset is fairly decent; the driver quality is sub-par compared to decent professional headphones, but is acceptable for gaming. The microphone, on the other hand, is astounding -- a *huge* improvement over generic microphones, or cheaper headsets w/ built-in mics.
Two major downsides:
1) The microphone on/off switch induces a loud "click"; if you use these headphones for Ventrillo or TeamSpeak and have auto-detect-voice enabled, your team-mates will hear a click when you turn on/off the mic. Creative could have avoided this by adding literally a one-cent piece of hardware to the on/off circuitry.
2) The biggest downside, in my opinion: the cones which encapsulate your ears, despite being comfortably padded, are a very odd shape -- oval, giving more length than width. If you have ears which even slightly stick out from your head (I'm NOT talking Alfred E. Newman, folks!), these cones will rub up against the sides/edges of your ears. After 5-6 minutes of use, you'll find yourself wanting to take them off.
I can live with the first flaw, but the 2nd is silly; Creative could have made the width of the earpiece 1-2cm wider and made the phones significantly more comfortable for those of us with human-like ears.

Great Headsets...but a little lowJan 02, 2008
By Ricardo Miller
My first complaint is not so much about the product but rather about the deal i got. I bought this a week and a half ago for $48 and now i see it at $39...Oh well. The second complaint, which is actually my only complaint about the product, is that it was not as loud as i expected. i bought these so that i won't get any further complaints from my neighbours when i do late night gamings at high volume on my logitech 5.1 set. I was expecting not to hear anything besides the game..but i was able to hear someone in the other room calling and disrupting my game time. Nevertheless, this headset is simply awesome and i have no problems to date. I have not unlocked its potential as yet since i am still using on board sound...but all that is about to change...extremegamer Fatal1ty sound card..HERE I COME!!
[one week later...]
I have now managed to use this headset for an extended period, playing Crysis for 9hrs straight and my ears were hurting. I didn't really notice it until i took them off. I am not sure if there are any headsets out there that would not become uncomfortable after 9hrs but this is not it. I had to rub my ears for a little while. i think that was one of the deciding factors to say that 9hrs of game play might be enough for now.
