The hardware in the headset and external accessory is perfectly functional and they work together to produce what I believe to be the best sound that I have heard from any headset I have owned previously. However the biggest failings are both in the firmware/software and the build quality of the headset.

Overall:
A functional headset with great sound quality but is dramatically hampered by the constant firmware/software issues and the poor build quality. You'd likely be better off spending your money on a different pair of headphones.

Software/Firmware:
It works a lot of the time but I have often found that on a near daily basis that the headset will suddenly desync with the external accessory and I will have to either turn the headset off and on, resync the headset with the accessory or turn the accessory off and on and then resync them. It is an unfortunate and unacceptable issue and it severely hampered my enjoyment of this product. Furthermore occasionally when using them, seemingly at random, my microphone will become fuzzy to the point of being white noise, this issue required a full restart of both card and headset.

I've also found that I have struggled to get it to function with my Xbox One and PS4. I followed the guide that was available on the website for the headset and still have found it to be only partially functional or non functional at all. Despite the guide stating otherwise I have found that the microphone does *not* work with the Xbox Ones external stereo adapter. I have also found that the optical channel either does not work or it could have been a fault on my end during set-up (despite following the guide).

Be careful before you buy.
The padding on the ear cups comes off VERY easily and is a nightmare to re-attach.
The ear cups can break / shear rendering it useless & now looking like I am going to have to return it and wait for a new one.

The audio quality is good, but the hardware faults make this headset terrible.
I'd put my money into something a bit better made next time regardless of audio.

I recently got this headset from creative, and its not a bad headset.......if you have a small head and ears. the ear pieces are small and are not deep at all and the head band keeps an above average pressure on the sides of your head. and before you say it I do have big ears and a normal head :D and this is very uncomfortable to wear for more than 30 minutes at a time. I would advise against getting any headset you cant physically pick up and look at.

Literally the poorest build quality of any headset I've owned. I've had to replace it 3 times now, each time the ear cup snapped off. Now you probably think this is due to me throwing it about or being careless, but i assure you it isn't. The ear cup is held on by 2 tiny little thin plastic screws than can snap if you turn the headset wrong, it's actually a joke how poor this headset it.
