Great headset 3/28/2013 2:09:23 PM

Pros: I really like this headset. Music and games sound really good.
It's wireless and gets about 30ft of range.

Cons: They aren't over ear as much as they are on top of your ear and after wearing them for an hour or two they make your ears, but it's not bad enough to lose an egg.

Overall Review: Works great for the price.

Dangerous construction 8/17/2012 11:12:19 PM

Pros: Decent sound quality, good range, mic muting feature is easy to use.

Cons: Short usb cable, intermittent loss of connection, problematic foam attachment on ear pieces, also caught on fire.

Overall Review: This is the 2nd headset of this type that I bought. I was very impressed with the first one except for the intermittent sound loss. The 2nd had problems with the ear foam, more intermittent sound loss, and lost sound completely in the right ear after about a year. Best of all, after more and more problems, the headset caught on fire while in use. The wires short circuited as the charger plugs into the headset and melted plastic and hair together. I take good care of my electronics and there was no reason for this catastrophic malfunction other than cheap parts and shoddy workmanship.

Best available in this price range 7/5/2012 10:42:31 AM

Comments: Windows 7 will correctly get the driver from Creative when you plug them in.

You could hope for better quality. The mfg warranty is 1 year and the pair I had completely stopped working at 12.5 months.

I bought the $10 service plan and that was a good investment. No questions asked and free shipping to send the broken ones in. Within hours of the tracking number reporting that it'd arrived at the location I got a NewEgg gift card for the original purchase price.

NewEgg isn't carrying this product right now so I bought a bluetooth replacement and a few other things. Pretty nice.

The service plan doesn't kick in till the mfg warranty is up. They don't do anything until that has expired. Just so you know what to expect.

Good inexpensive wireless headset 6/24/2012 1:01:01 AM

Comments: I believe that the mic breaking is simply due to my overuse of muting and unmuting while talking with people online and in person simultaneously.

Broken in every way one year later 2/21/2012 11:55:58 AM

Comments: Wouldn't buy this thing if the reviews I saw initially reflected the shoddy quality. There's a reason why newegg doesn't carry this junk anymore. Won't buy from creative ever again.

Yes and No... 1/31/2012 2:28:45 PM

Comments: These were on sale for $59.99 at time of purchase, and at that price, they are a decent headset. I bought them ONLY for the voice quality, not sound quality, so they weren't the best for me, but would be a pretty good gaming headset if you're not so concerned with recording your voice to put on the web.

Great Gaming Headset 12/10/2011 9:15:41 AM

Pros: I'm a huge fan of the wireless, after owning a pair of Ice Mats and Steel Series it was a nice upgrade. Sound quality is fantastic and the addition of side volume control is very useful. Being able to sit across the room and watch movies on my media station is really nice.

Cons: Many people complain that the battery has a semi-short life, but I really like that I can charge it at my desk while I play Battlefield. Other people have told me they are uncomfortable, but I think this might be a personal choice thing. Sure the cups dont completely surround your ears, but I like that and find it more comfortable.

Overall Review: A great headset, I bought one on a different (sorry newegg) for $135..... which I recently sat down on on :(. I'm going to order another new one from this site real soon because the price is a steal.

Died without warning 11/26/2011 6:53:47 AM

Comments: This one worked great from May 2010 until about a week ago (November 20, 2011. I used it, put it on charge, and when I tried to use it again the headset wouldn't even power up. I presently have an email into Creative Labs - we'll see how responsive they are.
