    ♦ Brief ♦

    I'm an owner of several Creative products ranging from sound cards to speakers and have had nothing but good experiences from them, so I was really excited to get my hands on these because "Quality" comes to mind when thinking about Creative's range of products.

    Upon unboxing I was in awe by how amazing these looked, the black & metallic red colour theme makes them look very stylish indeed!

    Then it came to holding them and you can really feel the high-quality level that these were made with from the solidness of the exterior to the premium feel of the materials such as the ear-cup cushions.

    It's safe to say these gave a very good first impression.

    ♦ Sound Quality - Wired ♦

    I have to admit, I was a bit impatient when it came to charging these, so as I knew these worked with depleted power by using an audio cable (included), I did just that by connecting my phone to these and blasted on the music expecting something special... but that didn't really happen, in fact the quality I heard was beyond sub-par and the music seemed very washed out, so around 20 seconds later I disconnected then reconnected the cables which seemed to do the job as the sound was very good, though the Sound Blaster app will not recognise the headset when connected this way, so you have no customizability unless it's through your devices own settings.

    ♦ Sound Quality - Bluetooth via Mobile/Tablet ♦

    You will need to go to the app store and download the "Sound Blaster Central" software, this will allow you to get the full functionality of these headphones.

    Honestly I was really impressed by the quality, it has a good amount of bass, the instrumentals were clear and so were the vocals.

    3.0 out of 5 stars So and So 3 Jun 2014
    Verified Purchase
    Worked for the first week and then after plugging into laptop via USB got the message usb device not recognised. Tried on my desktop and the same. Bluetooth worked ok because it is not working via direct connection, the software which comes with the headphones cannot be activated to change listening profile. Also a little bit on the heavy side.

    I also have the creative Recon3d Omega and cannot distinguished the difference. Perhaps I am getting old and my ears are failing me!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best headset ever! 29 July 2014
    Verified Purchase
    Simply the best pair of headphones that I've ever used. I use them all the time for PC gaming, with a separate mic. Mics are great as long as you don't listen to anything loud like Titanfall. Overall a great headset.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    I have had the great pleasure of using these headphones for the last couple of weeks. Bearing in mind that I've tried many different headphones, here is a list of reasons why I like these so much:

    + They contain a sound chip which is based on Creative's core product, their PC sound cards. When used in conjunction with the app or the software provided, this offers up a huge range of ways to tweak the sounds you're listening to, until you find the combination that suits your ear best - I can't stress how impressed I am at how intuitive and easy it all is to do, too. You can bypass the whole thing if you prefer (but why have these functions if you don't use them?) - the sound can come through direct if preferred. I was always of the opinion that I only wanted to hear music the way it was intended to be heard, without the artificial colouration that graphic equalisation introduces. I've changed my mind, because the sound produced is so enjoyable and easy to tweak for further delight. What the sound chip can do for a standard piece of music compressed at 192bps is astounding - it seems to fill in detail, somehow. My expensive Sennheisers, exquisite though they are, would only have highlighted that compression. These are headphones designed for modern digital needs; they can compensate for losses, and they do the job with flair.

    + The amplification is POWERFUL. One problem I have with a lot of the more traditional headphones is their low level of volume. I got around this by getting a FiiO E7 Portable Headphone DAC Amplifier, which totally transformed the volume and added sparkle and presence. These headphones sound like they have an E7 built into them.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Smart headphones - Great for casual listeners 30 July 2013

    ♫ Audio Sources

    PC (direct via USB & through VDAC+Graham Slee Solo SRGII Amp)
    Galaxy S3 using MortPlayer (via Bluetooth / NFC and standard audio cable)

    I was pretty excited to get these headphones and with Creative renowned for high quality audio products I was expecting something special.

    They're aggressively styled, with eye catching red illuminating ear cups resulting in a pretty cool looking headphone. The headphones are made almost entirely of high quality plastic and seem fairly robust, they fold down nicely and can be stored in the supplied cloth pouch.

    ♫ Connectivity & Functionality

    The EVO Zx headphones/headset offers and impressive range of connectivity options from USB, NFC, Bluetooth along with the standard audio cable. These are the first headphones I've used that include USB connectivity, bypassing the computers audio card and working directly with the Sound Blaster EVO desktop control panel.

    For sound on the move, the headphones utilises Bluetooth and NFC for connecting wirelessly to smartphones, with the ability to answer calls directly from the headset a welcome addition. Downloading the Android app from Google Play and setting up the headphones to work is simple: Just enable NFC on your phone, tap it against the ear cup (but take any rear cases off) and the headset will be recognized instantaneously, and the ear cups will change to blue for a second to confirm successful pairing. The wireless function works well, but I do sometimes experience split second pauses when listening. Battery life is OK at around 8 hours and will cover most daily commuting, you can monitor battery life from the App, which is great and when the battery does die, the headphones work passively using the standard audio cable.
