They sound great with THX Pro Studio.,
This review is from: Creative Labs 70GH012000004 Sound Blaster Tactic Alpha Gaming Headset (Accessory)
I used to have Creative Fatal1ty Headset with the cold plate 3.5mm jacks not the USB and I loved them. Bass was great and sound was awesome. Broke them accidentally so had to look for a replacement and I thought to take a step and go for USB headset which still support 3.5mm jacks too.
OK, they are made to work with Tru THX Pro Studio and they work well with it.
Lots of customisation options to make your own profile. Crystalizer, Surround, Bass, Dialog Plus, Smart Volume. There is an EQ and Voice FX options, Even Passcode for the software.
Separate Volume control and Master Volume from the software. There are also pre-made profile by gamers from Team Dignitas and Complexity for games like Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, Counter Strike, QuakeLive, Starcraft II. But prefer to use my own custom profile :D.
-Separate Volume Control
-Cover your ears nicely
-Not that great sound when using with the jacks.
-THX Pro Studio does not work with Headset when connect with the 3.5mm jacks.
-Bass could been better.
-Major problem I found is that while playing game, or listen to music or anything and I want to plug them in with the USB while playing, the sound doesnt tranfer from speakers to headset. I have to quit the game, stop playing the music or close it, plug the headset with the USB and then start the game. Which really is a big flaw for me. BUT this is only when you use it with the USB.
Overall: The Speakers are great, they do their job with the software. For their price they are good.
Been using the Headset for a month now since I bought it.

This is how it works. It's because you've effectively plugged in a new sound card. Very few programs can transfer over unless they have the option built in to change the audio device (Skype does for example)
It's like this with any USB headset I've had.

I agree with J Rhodes, some applications will let you switch seamlessly but many will not.
Great headset for the price, bet your Fatal1ty set cost a lot more than this :P
