Creative's best headset yet...,
This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage Wireless Gaming Headset with SBX (PC / MAC) (Accessory)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Set-up is really easy, though the instructions that come with the headset aren't the most descriptive ever. But this makes them easy to follow and I didn't encounter any problems with installation anyway, so no bother there.
The other headsets I've used are Creative's Soundblaster Omega and Tactic3D Wrath headsets and a secondhand pass-me-down, so maybe I'm not the best judge of sound quality, but I think it's superb; not tinny, distorted or 'bumpy' when the sound is turned up. After comparing the Creative Soundblaster Omega headset and Tactic3D Wrath headset to this edition, I think that this cheaper edition actually has the superior sound quality. You can detach the microphone so you can relax and listen to music or films on the PC if you wish, making the headset multipurpose and justifying the price.
The headset is very comfortable to wear - you can almost forget that you are actually wearing them and the range is quite good too. Not as good as the range with the Omega headset, but I can wander to the kitchen to grab a drink, or go to the phone with no problems.
The headset does lose a star for the slow charge time. This really isn't a major problem or me, but I'm thinking of those of you who will be buying the headset as a gift for someone younger - they may be bouncing off the furniture as they wait to be able to use it.
