Review from a PC gamerJan 09, 2010
I play lots of video games on my PC and they've been a lot more enjoyable since getting this headset. The first thing I noticed when I put these on was that they were extremely cushiony on my head. This is both a good and bad thing because it makes them very comfortable, but they blocked out so much noise that I had a hard time hearing even my doorbell or phone ringing. The headset is a bit tight on my head, but I think that'll wear off as I wear it more. The earcups actually swivel a bit in place which makes them more comfortable for people that don't have perfectly symmetrical heads such as myself.
This headset is great for gaming. In fps's like Team Fortress 2, Counter Strike Source, this headset let me hear the direction shots were being fired from with a lot more precision than my previous headset. I could also hear small details in the sounds that I couldn't hear before. The sound in the headset sounded odd at first, like they were quiet or like they were coming from behind me, but after a while they felt more realistic and accurate. I am guessing this is because I am used to wearing any old lousy headset.
The headset is also great for music. I noticed a huge improvement in the quality of the bass from my old headset(the headset I used before, a Logitech Extreme Gaming Headset had almost no bass). I'm not a huge music person, but I notice the little details a lot more easily than with my old headset
The microphone with this headset is pretty good. When voice-chatting on MSN/live messenger, the voice quality is better than when talking to someone with my phone. The in-line controls are in a good position and easy to reach while wearing the headset. The microphone-mute button works fine and the volume control has a good range. One nice thing about it is that you can remove the microphone, which is useful for people like my little brother who rarely need a microphone and don't want it in their way (one thing to note is the first time I tried attaching the mic, I didn't realize it has to fit a specific way into the slot on the headset and accidentally chipped a piece of the plastic by forcing it in the wrong way, but it still works perfectly fine).
This headset is not perfect however. I've found one tiny problem that may occur, though it's not really something to worry about. I have this headset plugged into my speaker, which is then connected to the back of my computer so it probably wont affect you unless you have a similar setup. If I have the volume set to the absolute max on my speaker but lowered all the way on my headset, I can sometimes still hear sound playing quietly through my headset. This only occurs under these specific conditions though, so you should never really have this problem unless you really push your headset's limits.
Overall the headset does not have many flaws and feels great to work with. It's very comfortable and is easily adjustable for different uses. Don't be fooled, even though this headset is a lot cheaper than the other fatality headsets, it still has excellent sound quality at an affordable price.
PS: One thing they don't note on the box for this headset is that it comes with a neat little pouch. It's a bit odd, because although you probably could fit the headset in there, it's not exactly shaped for one so it would look and feel a bit odd to store it there. It's nice quality, measuring about 9x10 inches, but would probably be used for other things besides the headset. It's nice to have laying around the house anyway.

Good for gaming and skypeDec 16, 2009
By Justin Seiferth
I'm not sure why but mic/headphones don't seem to be easy to make- they tend to be expensive or lousy or both. This one is the first pair I've bought that I've been happy with.
The ear muffs are comfortable for relatively extensive use. I've used them for about two hours straight without my ears or head starting to hurt or get sweaty. The muffs also muffle out a lot of the ambient noise- it's not noise canceling but it's easy to hear conversations even when the TV is playing in the other room.
The mic works well also- people don't hear me breathing but can still hear what I'm saying well. It doesn't get in the way although the connector to the removable mic does get loose about once a week- you just push it back in and it's fine. I have noticed that Skype thinks the volume of the mic is too low but people I'm talking to say it works just fine.
Now to some of the relatively minor downsides- the mic switch is hard to see if you wear glasses but don't have them on. The writing and icons are small and written in silver so you basically just have to memorize which way is which same with the volume control which is a small wheel in the same plastic bobble on the headset cord.
The cord is of good length and good quality- no intermittent breakups or breakages yet which is something I can't say about all headsets.

Good Sound...but NOT durable!May 12, 2010
By Brett Dietrich
I have no problem with the sound quality or voice quality...only the product durability. Didn't take long till the left ear started to crackle...then go out all together. The connection in the left ear is failing! I can move the cord around and get sound (or not get sound). This after only a couple of months of use...and it wasn't even heavy use...I've been busy on other things and my gaming time has been reduced. Just beware that if you buy it....you will have to baby it so it doesn't break. But is was great sound and comfort while it lasted.

A great headset for the priceAug 23, 2011
By Nep Eman
When I first got this headset, the microphone was broken. I contacted Creative's customer service and I received unsatisfying service, so I returned it to Amazon for a replacement. As usual, Amazon responded immediately and the next day a new one was on the way, and their customer service people are really nice, too. The replacement I received works perfectly and I couldn't be happier. I think the problem with the old one was that the on/off switch was broken, so I couldn't turn the mic on. The sound quality is stunning, and the mic quality is on par with it, although it's a bit sensitive. I agree with the other reviewers, you really can hear things in the music that you never noticed before. The only questionable thing is build quality. It feels a little flimsy, as if it might break if you handle it too roughly. But don't let that stop you from buying it. For $35, it's definitely worth it. It's pretty comfortable but after a wearing it for a few hours, the cushions irritate my ears a little bit. If you have any problems like I did, you can return it to Amazon, and Creative has a 1-year warranty, so I would definitely recommend this headset. 4 1/2 out of 5 for the product, and 5 out of 5 for Amazon's return policy and customer service.

Fatal1ty Gaming HeadsetOct 15, 2009
By M. N. Hatcher
As usual, I read the product specs and all the customer reviews, as well as checking with the tech review websites. Completely satisfied, I went ahead with the purchase of this headset. I was not at all disappointed, in fact I find the performance to be superb. Actualy, it rivals my 5-channel surround sound system for depth of sound and crisp clarity. I would highly recommend this Creative Labs, Fatal1ty Gaming Headset to anyone, whether for movies, music or gaming.
