    After making the move to PC gaming, I decided I'd better get one of these stoopid looking "proper" headsets, so plumped for this after finding out a bit about it. I can confirm you'll look stupid wearing it, but it is a very good headset. The sound is crisp and bass is good, while the headband and ear cups keep it comfortable. You do get a bit of sweaty ear, but as a gamer, personal hygeine is already a top priority for you, so I don't need to warn you about the dangers of fungal infections.

    The removable mic is a great idea, and I hope it doesn't come loose over time as losing the ability to question the parentage of your opponent and advise him of his mother's poor sexual prowess at an inoportune moment could prove embarrassing. The dongle is a bit big, and the annoying pulsing bright white light is annoying. Especially when it pulses. The ability to twist the 'phones 90 degrees to ease storage is a great idea, but I fail to see the point of the LED lights in the two cans. If you're wearing it you won't see 'em, and no-one else will think they're cool, mainly because you'll look so bedazzlingly stupid just wearing them. Turn them off and save your battery life, looking a little less stupid into the bargain.

    Speaking of power, the 'phones recharge via a micro-USB cable, a brightr spanking red one of which is included in the package. You'll not lose that one in the cable spaghetti too easily. The on/off button pulses white during charging and goes off when the headset is fully charged. I'd have preferred a red charge light and green light for full, but I'm a stickler for conventions that make sense like that. Where would we be if traffic lights just went off when you could go? The emergency room... that's where!

    I bought it based on the solid reviews it received. I was very happy with my purchase at first, but after a week, I began having some weird problems with it. I haven't seen many people complaining about these on the internet (though there were a few) so maybe some people just got unlucky, but here are the problems:
    * It's really difficult to switch it on. There's a lot of holding down the button, briefly clicking, plugging it in and out... sometimes it works right away, sometimes it takes me a few minutes to get it working. Though it works perfectly when it's plugged in and charging.
    * Most of the times it charges to around 25% and doesn't continue charging. It just stays there. A lot of times I left it overnight and while I was at uni (15 hours of charging in total) and I came back to a 30% charge. It's infuriating. It's essentially a wired headset with a very temporary wireless option
    * If I move around too much (and I don't even mean around the room - just in my seat) it will often desync for half a second or so. You may think it's nothing, but when it syncs back, it gives off a very distinct chime. It happens all too often.

    If you're like most and don't get these problems, remember 3 things:
    * Download the headset software from the Creative website. It lets you control things like Mic Volume, Master Volume, Colour and Pulsing of the glowing case, create profiles, gives you access to options like Dialog Plus and Smart Volume etc.
    * Let it fully charge before you switch it on and use it.
    * If for some reason, the headset and the USB receiver aren't factory synced, hold down the receiver button until it starts flashing rapidly, switch on your headset and hold down the microphone mute button. It should start flashing rapidly as well, quickly catch signal and your headset case should then start glowing on the sides.

    First I will say the sound quality from these is great in my opinion, and the range is fantastic! I can wear them all around my office at work.
    Note if you plan to do this try plugging the usb transceiver into your monitor or any port not hidden bellow your desk as it will have to go through alot more crap to get to your headset and limit your range.

    Now the bad, oh so bad. The build quality on this is appalling. First plastic support on the inside of the metal strip used in size adjustment will snap on both sides. Mine did this within 6 months of usage but doesnt effect the unit at all. Also the red bits on the top of the ear phone start to chip away leaving it looking a bit s***. In the last 2 months I have had the screw mountings snap inside, these are made of such thin plastic I'm surprised they lasted this long! And this is where your left with an unusable product as each ear needs 2 screws to hold it in place and with one missing you end up with one side hanging by only a cable :(

    This is VERY disappointing as I have only used it for 1 1/2 years and for £70 was thinking it would last alot longer, especially from a brand like creative.

    Lastly, as other reviews have now mentioned (not when I purchased though) the headset does seem to dig in on top of your head which makes wearing for long periods not very nice.

    Overall I was happy with the product until it started falling apart, But this is a fault in the design of the housing so I assume this would happen to everyone eventually. So I can only advise people to AVOID this particular headset.

    Addition, The headset will now longer charge and is useless to me :(
