Noise-Canceling Microphone for Clear Conversations
Communication during raids and in the arena is vital. The Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless headset uses a professional-grade noise-canceling microphone, so you'll always be able to communicate clearly with your guild or Arena mates when coordinating your attack. Also, the microphone is detachable, so it won't get in the way if you're using the headset to enjoy your music.

Declare Your Allegiance with Customizable Lenses
The removable ear-cup lenses can be used to declare your allegiance to your faction. Every headset includes a set of Horde and Alliance lenses, and additional lenses will be available in the future as well. Included software makes it easy for you to customize the color of the programmable LEDs that illuminate the lenses--16 million colors to be exact. And you can control the intensity and pulsation of the lighting as well.

Smart Design is Comfortable and Portable
To keep you comfortable for extended gaming sessions, the headset features oversized cups and padding that fit snugly over your ears. Volume, mic mute/pairing, and power buttons are built into the ear cup, so you can change settings quickly.

And in case you need to change locations, this headset makes it a cinch. It folds flat, and the microphone detaches for quick and easy portability. Included with the headset is a pouch for protection during travel.

The "Create Your Own Review Form" has a very telling question it asks on the right side of our screens.

Q: "What would you have wanted to know before you purchased the product?"
A: That it would break in 2 months and Creative offers terrible support.

Appearance, Comfort, Sound Quality, Microphone Quality, Packaging all receive high marks. The multicolor LEDs are a nice touch inside each of the ear modules and the otherwise black color scheme is appealing, though it seems the entire thing is made out of (easily broken) plastic. Comfort of the piece is top notch. I am the raid leader for my WoW guild so I am regularly wearing these headphones for 4 or more hours and neither the inside of my ears or the top of them where my glasses sit would feel uncomfortable. The microphone quality is perfectly fine, my guild mates on Ventrilo did not complain of a poor quality sound from my end. Packaging was also well done though you do not receive an installation CD and have to go onto the internet to download it. Sound quality is very satisfying since it is THX certified it does not disappoint.

Ease of Use, Features, and Wireless Range all leave something to desire. Ease of use is relatively hassle free, if it weren't for the fact that once every two weeks I randomly lose my signal and it takes me several minutes to resync the USB dongle and the headset. This would not be such a hassle, had it not occurred twice during a raid. We refrain from buying wireless mouses for the same reason, there are some things that just cannot have issues when we are relying on them. The features, mainly the program that allows the adjustment of LED color and your voice, is rather gimmicky.

Received this product yesterday. After the initial 8 hour charge I was anxious to test it out. Comfort and sound quality are awesome. Installation was very easy if you follow the Quick-Start guide. The THX options are amazing for versatility. Range on the 2.4gHz wireless is also very delectable. I was very impressed until I went to talk to my guild mates over Ventrilo...

Every single person said I sounded very muffled / tin-e / static-e. The microphone also picks up almost every sound in the room. It is very annoying. Noise canceling microphone??? NO. More like noise amplifying microphone of terrible quality. I plugged in my old $15 headset from WalMart and my voice was back to crystal clarity to everyone in Ventrilo.

I spent about two hours of my own time alternating sound options inside Windows, Ventrilo, and the custom sound board to get my voice sounding somewhat normal over Ventrilo to no avail. I posted this issue on the official Sound Blaster forums. I am also going to create a support request. If this issue isn't fixed or on the way to being fixed I'm going to get a refund and by a different set.

I really was looking forward to this headset. When my pre-order arrived I absolutely was wowed by the presentation and overall look of the product. The comfort of these phones is truly amazing and I hope will be copied by others in future. Now for the negatives... The microphone did not work from the start... I can hear others in TeamSpeak, but they can't hear me (even after making sure my settings were correct). I also noticed that my Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard go all sluggish and wacky when using these phones. Attempts to contact Creative customer support were as unpleasant as could be. They make you drill down through seemingly endless menus before you can send an email to their customer support team (tip: make sure you have your serial number or you will get no customer support) -- no phone number is available. I sent my problems to them on March 5th via email and just heard back today (3/10/10)... Their answer? Try to keep the wireless headphones away from the computer's wireless keyboard and mouse, as they can cause interference. I waited 5 days for *that*! Kind of hard to seperate the computer keyboard, mouse and headset when playing a game on the computer...

The most ironic thing of all is the mouse and keyboard are acting up the worst in WOW when paired with the headset, making it unplayable. Looks like these phones are going back to Amazon. I love the concept and the look of the phones, but Creative's execution and customer service are terrible. Oh well. :-(

Cool headset, but after using it more during raids, everyone complains about how the Mic turns screechy and sounds robotic (this is with VOICEFX off) The only fix is to D/C from Vent and relog but it will happen again. Issue is posted over and over on Creative's FOrums by many users and they have not replied or released a fix. Unfortunately an Epic Headset has turned into a worthless Green Item. Never buying creative again.

Everything about this headset is pretty nice with the exception of two things, and these two things get it awarded a single star out of five. POOR QUALITY MATERIALS and UNRELIABLE WIRELESS TRANSMISSION.

My headset snapped in half! I'm always very careful when handling things like this but one day as I was tanking them off my head, the piece of plastic that is used to extend the earphones snapped, causing the right earphone to dangle down loosely by a wire. This piece of plastic is astonishingly brittle and THIN. It is about one third the thickness of the wire itself! Either the quality assurance testing was completely bypassed during testing phases, or the QA department needs to be fired for allowing such a flimsy cheap design into production. Upon doing a Google search I discovered hundreds if not in the thousands, of posts of owners of this headset that have had the same thing happen to them. The earphone snapped off the headset. There is no way to fix it. You are screwed.

During the 3 months that I was able to use this headset, the wireless transmission of audio would randomly and frequently lose sync. There would be no sound for 5-6 seconds at a time. Sometimes it would happen 10 or 20 times a day, and on some days it would happen continuously every 10-20 seconds for hours. This happened regardless of where I put the transmitter, how close it was to the headset, and how charged the battery was. So very annoying.

For a $160 product, I definitely feel like I was ripped off. I can't return them without a serial number, of which I don't have because it is NOT anywhere on the item itself but on the box it came in, which I threw away after 2 months. Really Creative Labs? Can you shove your middle finger in my face any harder?
