Great headsetMay 31, 2012
I'm using it on my 360 because I have the Alpha for PC and knew what to expect. Just plugging this in is fantastic. I've never had interest in using or wanting to have a headset for a console but this was just worth it. The cords are LONG. You have something like 16-18 feet of cord.
I use my system with HDMI and just used the original composite cables that came with my system in conjunction with it(instead of an adapter which apparently isn't sold now and hard to find and the shoddy third party ones have issues). Just plugged the RCA adapters onto it and let them hang and it sends the sound to the headset just fine.
As for everything else. The headset construction is sturdy, it doesn't feel cheap at all. At the same time I find it extremely comfortable. I can wear these for hours on end and not even notice they're on my head. The sound is rich, it added a whole different dimension to me. It has good bass but not too much of anything, it's just.... good.
Now, the ONLY problem I have. You have two volume controls. Good, right? Well, here's the problem. You have chat volume and master volume. Master volume affects chat volume AS WELL AS GAME VOLUME. That is my ONLY complaint. I have to go into every game I play and lower the volume a ridiculous amount to be able to hear people I am talking to in parties. It probably works better in game chat, but private chat and parties don't lower the game volume when people talk so it's a little issue. That's really the only thing that keeps this from being a five star headset. Is that a problem with the headset design itself or is it a limitation of using a headset at all, I don't know, since I've not been able to see others outside of the very limited demo displays, so there's no way to tell what they have going on. Certainly not a big enough issue to not recommend this headset, but it is something to keep in mind if it's important to you.
I've played Forza 4, Mass Effect 3, Ghost Recon Future Soldier, and some other games with this headset after getting it and definitely not disappointed at all in the sound and quality.

Good for the PC too!May 15, 2012
By Ryan D
I play primarily on the PC, but also tried this on the 360 for those rare late nights where I'd rather not make everlasting enemies of my neighbors. Things I noticed:
- The entire setup is very thoughtful. It comes with more adapters and instructional sheets than I actually had a use for, but the initially confusing stuff worked great when I actually tried it.
- The in-line adapter was somewhat awkward to clip to my shirt, but I honsetly can't
- The cables are loooong. At first I was a bit baffled, then everything made a lot more sense when I tried to plug it into my 360 - it's long enough to sit on my couch and reach if need be.
- The headset is SOLID. I was coming from a couple of Icemat/Steelseries Siberias (which I actually like as headsets) that have been getting chain-replaced under warranty, as they simply fell apart after a year or two of use. This feels like an heirloom that I'll be able to pass to my grandkids.
- The microphone is great - I only used it on the PC side, but it worked great for Ventrilo/Teamspeak with my friends.
- The sound, lastly, is awesome. I'm no audiophile, but the bass in BF3 with this was enough to make me bounce up and down a little in joy. I don't think it's supposed to be 7.1 or anything, but the positional sound comes through well enough for me to hear my surroundings and instinctively know where it's coming from.
Would totally put this on my head again! Also, I have a large head (XXL hats), and this thing can actually fit comfortably.

For PC / Mac... well, kind of.Feb 28, 2013
I wasted an hour trying to get my PC or my Mac to recognize this headset with the accompanying USB volume dongle. The best I could do was get Windows to see it as WSAUDIO_DEVICE, but could never get sound to come out of it. If I unplug the USB portion and plug the 3.5mm jacks directly to my sound card, everything works okay, but the 3.5mm cable is incredibly short (maybe around 2.5 to 3'), and in my case, useless without an extension cord.
I thought that maybe it was because I am running Windows 8. So I tried it on OSX. Nope, the USB dongle is made solely for the xbox 360, and there aren't any drivers for the PC.
So if you're planning on using this for the PC, be aware of that major shortcoming (to go along with the short cable).
Also, the headset ear pieces rest on the ears instead of around the ears, which can be very uncomfortable in a very short period of time.
A great alternative to get to save your wallet!Jan 23, 2014

I recently had the Turtle Beach X12's, the terrible X11's, and Logitech F540's. So far this headset has blown all those three out of the water in less than an hour. The comfort this headset gave me was astounding, giving me the impression that I was wearing nothing. Since I have a big head comfort was the key thing for me and the Sound Blasters did the job. Not only in comfort, but also the sound it provided. The headset itself gave me no white noise whatsoever and that was the biggest thing for me when it came to the other three since they gave out this white noise that annoyed me for so long. With a few hours trying these out, I'm planning on buying the PC version of them for my rig. Creative has truly done a great job in providing a comfortable headset for anyone with a big head, and giving some sound found in $100 headsets!
On a side note, the headset might feel weak in plasitc but with countless of times of pulling the plastic is extremely durable!
or could i just plug it into the front usb slots and be good,Dec 12, 2013
Just wanted to know what the set up process was for this headset. For the fact that i would rather buy the necessary cables and accessories now rather than later. I currently play on a benq monitor that connects to my xbox via an hdmi cable. I was browsing through the reviews and i saw that it needed the hdmi slot?? Just wondering if i need to buy an hdmi cable adapter for the normal microsoft cable to be able to plug it into my xbox. or could i just plug it into the front usb slots and be good, thanks
