Best Value Headset I've UsedJul 26, 2014
The Inferno is an incredible value for the price. The headset feels sturdy, but without being uncomfortable when I put it on. I was a bit worried about the smaller looking ear cups, but they were surprisingly roomy. The powerful audio quality is exactly what I've come to expect from a Creative/SB product, and the detachable microphone is actually very good!
The 3.5mm connections are exactly what I was looking for, as some of my devices aren't able to use USB inputs. With a cool looking black and red color scheme the Inferno looks the part, and overall is a headset that I would highly recommend as an incredibly good value.

I would say that the Inferno Gaming Headset is a great one to considerSep 05, 2014
By Ex Avier
I have never tried a Creative headset before but now that I have, I would say that the Inferno Gaming Headset is a great one to consider. The bass was pounding and the quality of sound was great. I like the detachable microphone if you want to simply listen to music only and the analog volume control is convenient too.

Bang on!Sep 20, 2014
By Vinay Vijayakumar
I use it predominantly for online multiplayer play on Steam and for music otherwise. The experience has been great so far. I am loving it to bits. Why you ask? Here goes...
Music: It hits the sweet spot between bass n treble for me. Well balanced sound and I know this can be personal preference based on the kind of music et al. The volume controls are pretty well placed and works as expected.
Gaming: It's a definite add on to the gaming experience and I love how it picks up the tiniest of sounds, making us hear and arm up for the action that awaits. Quite some bang here. Mic seems very nice quality based on what my team told me while play. It has an optimal length and isn't too short to make me unsure about how it works, nor is it too long that I feel I am chewing on it.
The headset seems to be built really well and doesn't for a second make me unsure about flexing it over my slightly oversized head. Good job there Creative!! Wonderful bang for your buck. Go ahead and buy!
PROS: Price, Sound Quality, Build Quality, Comfort
CONS (Read nits) : Lack of media controls on the headset, makes it harder to use with a phone.

Good budget headset.Jun 24, 2015
By Nate Niosco
For the price this was a good headset.
- Slightly slimmer profile than other gaming headsets
- Good sound quality for the price
- In-line control for sound and mic
- Padded cups and headband
- Flimsy cable
- Pressure became uncomfortable after wearing for a while
- Microphone sensitivity was not consistent.
This was the first headset I have ever bought for PC gaming. I have had this headset for just over 6 months and my experience has been...okay. Don't get me wrong, for the price these are good. I bought them on sale for $35.99 and have had only a few issues with them.
First off, the good. They're affordable. They're lightweight and have a slimmer profile than some of the other headsets out there. The audio quality was good for the price, but don't expect to fall in love with it. There are much better options out there if you're looking for a headset that sounds great. The in-line mic and volume control was nice. I use Teamspeak and Raidcall when I play PC games so it's nice to be able to physically mute the sound or cut my own mic. A lot of people complain when headsets do not have a padded headband. Luckily, this one comes with a decent pad.
Next, the bad. The cable...my worst enemy. If you're the kind of person who likes to keep their cords neat and organized, this is not a headset for you. I tried several different cord management tricks including the wrap-around, the bundle, and the wind-up but was not fully satisfied with any of them. Eventually, I just let the cord hang out on its own. If you're fine with something like that, then it shouldn't bother you. The audio plug also felt pretty flimsy to me and after some time it became loose-fitting in my audio port, causing audio and mic issues when I played games. I wish that the cable came with an L-plug. As far as comfort goes, if you have a small-medium size head these might be better for you. I have a larger head and the pressure became unbearable after a few hours of wear. I thought that the comfort would improve after a while so I kept with it. Eventually, I didn't even notice the pressure and could wear them for hours without much discomfort. However, upon recent inspection I realized that the left earpiece cracked at the shiny swivel point which added more give to the headset. That was probably the reason it became more comfortable. The crack was likely the result of mishandling the headset (I dropped it once). The microphone was probably the biggest issue. I had no problems with it the first couple of months. Then, I started having issues with the mic being too sensitive or not sensitive enough. I tried several fixes including adjusting the settings on my PC, in RC and TS; I even bought a sleeve for the mic piece. Eventually, I found a nice balance but it was a hassle to figure out what the balance was. I'm not sure if the microphone was defective or my PC/software settings were unbalanced. But messing with everything seemed to fix the problem.
Overall, I would not buy these again.

By Michelle L Pennington
I need help if anyone else has had this problem, the mic I have used will work for my iphone but it wont work for my computer. Has anyone else has this problem before? I like it yet it, the audio is clearer than my speakers and when I use it in my phone it's crystal clear, yet when I use it in my computer it only picks up the sound of me flicking it on and off. I need help please.
