This headset is simply amazing for this price! The headset is very comfortable and I can easily use it for long gaming sessions without my ears getting melted or hurt. The sound quality is very good and you can enhance and tweak it even more with the Sound Blaster Connect software. You can switch between Stereo, 5.1 and 7.1 surround and choose the one which suits you the most. Also the 7.1 virtual surround works very well and its not overemphasized. Same goes for the bass. Most gaming headsets have too much bass which dampens the other sound frequencies but Creative Labs have done awesome job and there is just right amount of bass and of course you can tweak the bass level to your liking with the Sound Blaster Connect software.This headset is not only for gaming, you can also use it for making and listening music because this headset provides clear sound quality and frequencies so you can hear the song how the artists made it to be heard.The microphone totally surprised me. It has very good sound quality and it's easily the best microphone you can have in this price range of headsets. It even has better sound quality than some more expensive headsets. Currently no other headset microphone can come this close to this microphone in this price range.The built quality is very good and the headset feels sturdy and like I already mentioned it is very comfortable. This was my first headset from Creative Labs and because of this successful experience I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
