4 out of 5 eggsNice headset (2 week review)

Pros: 1- Wireless with great battery life
2 - Great sound quality
3 - Decent mic (haven't heard any complaints on Teamspeak)
4 - Relatively easy to use software
5 - Can be used while charging
6 - Very solid feeling construction
7 - Cool LED effect

Cons: 1 - A bit heavy, but you get used to it
2 - The headband padding is stiff at first, but breaks in quick enough
3 - The charge cable it comes with is stiff, and difficult to unplug
4 - The on ear volume control sometimes doesnt work when in a full screen game (Skyrim) not sure if there is an update or something to fix
5 - Complete and utter lack of beer fetching, or cookie and sandwich making ability.

Other Thoughts: Good solid headset. Ive had no real problems with it that would make me not suggest this. Its sound is better then what I was using (cheap $20 one) I didn't mark it as a con or knock an egg off, but wouldnt mind if there was a model with mic on the right side instead of left, but that is preference.
I have notice a slight buzzing sound in the left ear when I am charging it, not really annoying, just barely noticeable.
Side Note: I have read reviews saying that the charge port on the headset breaks after a time. Noticed almost right away that the charge cable that it comes with is harder then it should be to unplug, it locks in real tight. That might be why the charge port gets broken. I suggest, as I have, using a different usb - mini usb charge cable, I am using the one that came with my phone. Works great, less feeling like I am tearing the thing to unplug it.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Decent Sound Quality.
Wireless.

Cons: Like everyone else has been saying about this headset. The head band was really tough, didn't cushion nor conform to the head. As it says in it's title "Circumaural". It is far from that. I could last maybe 4 hours with it on before having to take it off. The ear cups did not go over all of the ears, instead it compressed them and made it uncomfortable to use. The padding itself was not porous and didn't allow for compression of the padding. Instead, made hard just like the head cushion.

4 out of 5 eggsGood headphones

Pros: Sound is decent, pretty much the same as all my other Creative headphones. Battery lasts twice as long as my naga wireless mouse.

Cons: These are a bit uncomfortable on the ears after extended gameplay, even after the initial first couple day break-in period. After about 6-8 hours of gaming my ears need a break for 15 minutes.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much what I expected with these headphones, though they do last longer wireless than what I had expected. Really can't beat em for the price. I still haven't downloaded the drivers as I'm lazy and don't want to mess with re-pairing them, they work fine without the drivers though.

1 out of 5 eggsD.O.A.

Pros: I have been a Creative Labs customer 4 quite a few yeas now & have always turned 2 them 4 my sound card needs & have never had a problem with there products .Untill NOW!!.

Cons: I have owned the Sound Blaster 3D Tactic Wireless Rage 4 about 3 mos. now.#1 the 1st set i received was DOA, it power up the 1st time,said it was fully charged,so i went 2 install the firmware update they recommend,which is a complicated joke in itself.After getting 1.2 way through this update i needed 2 shut down the headset,when i did it wouldnt shut down,held in the power button 4 about 4 sec & it finally shut down,when instructed 2 turn it back on it wouldnt power back up,i tried every trick that they ,& other people recommend.2 no avail.sent it back 2 New Egg 4 replacement set.
Received the replacement set & decided against the there complicated firmware update. I did down load there Software for 7.1 surround sound. What a joke that was,sounds just like plain ol stereo.The battery charge indicator only gives u the state of the battery WHEN its unplugged form the charge cable.
I dont understand the logic behind that. wouldn't u want 2 know the state of the charge?,how long u have left b4 its fully charged?When plugged in it just shows a red battery symbol.No indication of any kind.
They claim 16hrs run time,im getting 10-12 hrs,i guess not so bad.The build quality is not 2 bad,seem 2 b a little bit sturdier then the TB they replaced (wow thats another story,bad as well)the ear cups seem 2 b a little small,dont quite cover the ear fully.Now after the bad experience i had with the TB i made sure i was VERY VERY careful about how i put on this headset.
but after about 3 weeks i noticed a chip in the RT side red piece the holds the rt earcup in place upon closer inspection i noticed a hairline crack in the same piece.I notified Creative labs & after them giving me the runaround about serial # date of purchase,where i bought them,ect,ect,they want 2 know how the chip got there,could i send them pics.I said 2 them look heres your pics, just send me the replacement piece,i can put it on myself just 2 screws hold it in place & we will all b happy.
NO!!! they want me 2 send back the headset @ MY EXPENSE!!!I said look u know that im the original owner, that there less then 4mos OLD!!! they r DEFECTIVE u should b paying 4 the cost of return,its your DEFECTIVE product,its your responsibility 2 pay 4 shipping both ways.There reply was: No we cant send u the part, r Warranty say that the customer pays 4 shipping 2 us we pay 4 return shipping 2 the customer. Well i just read there warranty.( us.creative.com) & i could b blind but i did not c mention of the customer paying 4 shipping 2 them, Creative Labs.
So here i am a VERY dissatisfied EX Creative Labs customer that will NEVER EVER do business with them again.

3 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: Clear audio, boom detachable, mic clear, decent battery life.

Cons: The downside is that the nylon that covers the speakers tend to rub against the ears that can become very uncomfortable. Knock off 2 eggs for this, as a gamer on the weekend the constant rub almost defeats the purpose of a wireless headset, otherwise it would get a full 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: It is fairly heavy headset, so you do get some weight pressure at the top of the headset, a little adjustment forward or back, or wearing a cap makes it fairly unnoticeable after time.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: its wireless

Cons: Cheap materials used
full range is not possible
breaks fairly easy
uncomfortable
overpriced unit

Other Thoughts: I've had this headset for some time now and within the first few months this thing was fine. But once it fell it was game over. It fell off my desk one day and it has never worked the same. its not like my desk is 10ft tall or anything it was a 30" drop to the floor and the one of the ear cups just twists so easily now the range is okay but not great if you go any where further then 10 feet away it starts to disconnect and keep trying to reconnect very annoying. Would tell everyone to consider something different at this price point for a wireless unit. I plan to.

1 out of 5 eggsBad headset, horrible customer service.

Pros: Isn't completely broken.

Cons: The padding is rock hard and inflicts actual physical pain to my ears with prolonged daily use. When charging them while using them, you can hear the crackle and hum of the current in the left earphone. Worst customer service I've encountered in a long time.

Other Thoughts: I purchased these after owning the Omega headset. I was pleased with those. These look very similar and are half the price, and I assumed that it was because that while the Omega could be used for PC and console, the Rage were PC only. Boy was I wrong. Not only was it immediately apparent that these were low quality after pressing the padding, but it felt like it was made out of cheaper materials just by holding them. Not being able to afford another pair, I lived with it. After days of use these headphones started to make my ears sore. I thought I was just adjusting to them and they had to be broken in but I was wrong again.

I contacted Creative customer support and requested to exchange them for the Omega. Their response was: "We apologizes that you are experiencing this issue, we are not allow to change the earpad of the Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage Wireless to replace with the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega Headset earpad. I only can recommend you to change the earpad by yourself but it is not really advisable."

I explained again that I wanted an upgrade or a refund. They approved the upgrade and then proceeded to tell me that I had to pay $250, which is $80 MORE than what I had paid for the Omega THREE YEARS AGO.

I explained that it was ridiculous, and I could get a brand new pair for $120 AND didn't have to exchange the Rage to do so. He then told me they would accept $120 AND STILL wanted the Rage.

I said that the offer was insulting, and to not bother making any more offers. He then said "Please note that if we are selling you the Omega headset without
trading the Rage headset it is reflects that you are getting both headset Rage and Omega at the price of $120 only." Like I got the rage for FREE? LOL

He is obviously an idiot, and I will never EVER be buying another product from Creative again.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal on circumaural

Pros: Good sound, clean mic, and no cords for my dogs to chew.

Cons: The pad at the crown of my head is a bit firm, results in an ache after a while. Not Neweggs fault, Creative should have used memory foam or gel.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great sound, nice looks, I don't have the complaint others made about headset being too heavy, it adjusted well for my big head and since my ears are always cold it keeps them warm

Cons: Only complaint is the foam wind shroud came off after a few days and is easily lost. Creative needs to fix that and maybe include a second spare in the box. I have no idea where you would get a replacement as there in no info on their web site
