VERY IMPORTANT: See UPDATE 2 & 3 below!!!!

Let me preface this review by saying, unlike most others here I am an audiophile (actually a professional musician at one point in my life and have done audio engineering and composing for myself and others). I've also been a electrical engineer and currently work as a software engineer so I am very savvy about electronic products.

I've been looking around for some decent ANC BT headphones I can leave on my head most of the day while I work and because I've had pretty good experiences with Creative products in the past I decided to give these headphones a try.

Comfort 5/5:
The headphones are comfortable to wear. I wore them for a good part of a day and never felt any pain or distress. My ears did get a little bit sweaty but in all fairness it was somewhat warm here so that was a factor.

Audio quality 4/5:
Since I am an audiophile I tend to be very critical of audio quality (See UPDATE 1 below). I listened to a variety of music (classical, rock, jazz) and the sound quality is good. There is an emphasis on the low end. I turned off all the extra processing and listened to a few pieces of music. The low end was more prominent than I'm used to. I'm not going to say it's bad, it's just louder than what I would consider normal. The good news is there is a built-in graphic equalizer that can be used to reduce the low end to the desired level.

I have not tried many of the audio features yet but I will update this review as I encounter those.

ANC 4/5 (Revised):
This was one of the main reasons I purchased these as I live near a rather noisy street.

The connectivity of these headphones are ahead of any headphones.

Pros:
1. NFC pairing. Pairing to Android is fast and easy.
2. Noise cancelling
3. Bluetooth with Apt-X CD quality when connected to supporting Bluetooth devices
4. A control app on PC and Android. It tells you battery life, settings and configuration.
5. USB connectivity that also charges. Thick cable. Use your headphones like a sound card to the PC.
6. Sound environments.
7. Voice morphing.

Cons
1. The joint between the ear cup and metal band is connected by a piece of black plastic and 3 screws. This is the weakest point of failure.
2. The suction between the ear and ear cup can be strong and you can hear and feel the suction when you press buttons against the ear cup.
3. The 3.5mm, 4 pole TRS audio cable is thin and not competitive with other headsets in this price range. It's broken into two cables. One for connecting to a PC with a mic and audio out. One for daisy chaining this cable to a phone.

Suggestions for improvement.
1. Use thicker 3.5mm audio cables.
2. Fix the 3 screw plastic joint by using metal or something sturdier. People with big heads will break the joint easily when they spread open the headset.
3. Change the headphones to circumaural instead of supra-aural. I find that I can't wear these headphones for long periods. The pressure against my ears is painful after an hour or so.
4. Put some air vents to prevent a vacuum between my ear drums and the ear cups.

Been toying with these for hours now and here's my honest opinion...

Pros:

1. Pairs nicely with my Samsung Galaxy S4 and Asus USB BT400 PC adapter over bluetooth.
2. Over bluetooth, I'm surprised at how loud you can get these headphones without losing quality. Don't forget there's a volume control on the side!
2. Compared to my Audio Technica ATH-M50, the EVO ZxR has more bass, which I was hoping for.
3. The sound stage of these headphones are great. Compared to the ATH-M50, the sound emits at a much closer proximity.
4. The noise cancelling feature is decent at blocking out my PC fan noise, but could be better.
5. Headphones are light enough. It's hard to believe there's a battery in there.
6. Headphones are comfortable enough.
7. Not sure if it depends on the bluetooth devices used, but my phone was upstairs and I could still listen to my music downstairs, so range is a plus!
8. These headphones really shine when watching movies.

Cons:

1. These headphones are labeled as wireless gaming headphones, but they don't output sound while gaming on PC over bluetooth? This is a big upset...
2. There may be a possible issue with the SoundBlaster EVO controller app for PC. If you have bluetooth enabled with the USB cord plugged in, the app seems to throw the bluescreen of death and restarts my PC ever time I click through the settings.
3. Did not come with a USB bluetooth adapter for PC use. Not a prob for laptop users I guess...
4. Did not come with bundled software. Had to download it, which must be inconvenient for those without internet...
5. There's a sound control app for android use and for wired USB use on PC, but no support for bluetooth use on PC?
6. Price.
7. Don't plan on using these corded much, but the 3.5mm and USB cables should be longer.

Will keep this review updated... stay tuned...
