Key Features

evo-zxr-headphones
Massively powerful

Get ready to unleash the full power and clarity of your audio. Sound Blaster EVO ZxR's FullSpectrum 50 mm audio drivers are capable of reproducing the full audible range of the audio spectrum, so you won't miss a beat.

evo-zxr-headphones
Shut out that noise

The headset's ear cups cover your ears entirely, effectively shutting out external noise, while the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature detects and cancels out the ambient noise electronically. So, whether you're on the plane or subway, what you hear is only the audio that matters most to you.

Crystal Voice

Communicate with confidence and be understood. The integrated dual beamforming microphones work in tandem with the headset's advanced CrystalVoice technologies to make sure you're always heard clearly. Ambient noise and echoes picked up by the microphones are reduced drastically. Likewise, unwanted noise from incoming calls is also being eliminated. CrystalVoice creates an acoustic zone that picks up only your voice and nothing else, so you can still be heard with amazing clarity in noisy environments.

    I bought this for its surround sound capability in PC gaming thinking that Creative had been clever with their Bluetooth implementation, but it turns out that surround sound is only implemented via USB.
    One of the plastic bits started crumbling so I returned it and had it replaced. The new headset stopped charging after a few days, but as I am an electrical engineer, I opened it up and found that the +5v lead was slightly loose on the internal PCB connector. So i managed to fix that without having to return a 2nd headset.
    Overall I am disappointed with the headset, it feels rather flimsy and provide virtually no acoustic isolation from external noise. The sound cancellation is mainly for plane/train noise, and as with other similar products introduces a small amount of hiss.
    Finally - the surround sound does not really work. I have tried a number of demos and cannot distinguish much between the forward and behind sounds - it is only slightly better than stereo.

    Ok, these headphones are expensive and the first pair I received were faulty, but all it took was one email and another pair arrived the next day, also Amazon gave me ample time to return the faulty pair which were collected by Amazon arranged courier. The headphones are really bloody comfortable, the cushioning is the softest I've experienced (and I've tried on a lot).
    The sound quality is spot on! My music sounds better than it has for years, from the softer sounds of Kate Bush to the hammer thumping barrage of Rammstein. I can pick out each instrument with the clarity that it was intended and get blown away by the bass quality.
    Although I may be 51 I still like playing games on the xbox, sat in the dark with the SB EVO ZXR on my skull, atmosphere oozes out of them. I love to get dragged into a game and get the feeling that your really involved, Movies don't bother me but playing games in the right atmosphere scares the s*** out of me, Brilliant!
    I use these headphones with as i've mentioned: Phone, Xbox and my Kindle and PC and haven't been dissapointed, As the saying goes - 'you get what you pay for!' My thoughts on this expensive but brilliant bit of kit........Excellent there are no regrets here!

    I'll keep it short and to the point.

    It's a lovely headset - the build quality is top quality.
    Can't complain about the functionality - it comes with a bunch of stuff (see item details).
    The software is not bad too - you can change your audio profile much like the varying 'mood' settings on your TV (movie, sports dynamic etc).
    The audio quality is pretty good (not perfect, sorry, I'm an audiophile).

    Basically it's very good except that it was incompatible with my Microsoft Surface Pro for no reason. It should be. The Surface Pro is compatible with all Windows certified Bluetooth devices.

    The problem I experienced was that most of the time whenever I'm using is via Bluetooth it reduces my internet bandwidth to nothing. I'm sure this is a driver issue or something equally simple but the Creative support team and myself could not resolve the issue.

    I really didn't want to return them but I didn't buy them to plug them in.

    Have been on the lookout for the ideal high-end bluetooth headphones and came across these by chance - they do not appear in the normal searches as they are marketed as a gaming headset, but on reading the specs I ordered a pair (I never do gaming, btw):

    + excellent sound quality
    + comfortable to wear and reasonably light
    + so many widgets and flashing lights that you need to re-read the instruction booklet, but undeniably very well-specced
    + bluetooth phone calling is good quality and that is important (though the Sennheiser MM500-X are better at that)
    + good kit of extras and the carry case is good quality, plus the cans fold flat for slimline storage

    - without doubt the ugliest set on the market (real shame because Creative have produced a decent set here but you cannot help feeling they have tried to go the garish and flashy "gaming" style, and that's a fashion turn-off)
    - while comfortable, I never felt that they fitted completely leaving a narrow gap at the bottom; I was constantly adjusting them
    - yes, the audio quality is excellent, I would liken them to the Senn MM500-X but with an extra 10% umph (the achilles heel of the Senns), but I will add that I've heard better quality from other cans (Logitech UE9000 and Philips Fidelio M1)
    - the bluetooth phone quality is good unlike so many competitors, but describing it as "HD voice" seems over-egged - they are good, but no more than that
    - they are not cheap by any stretch. In fact I set my limit at £200 and broke that rule in the hope that these would be "the ones".

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The whole package comes in a rather nice box which is like a cardboard storage unit and the headphones themselves are contained in a pouch made of what looks like black jeans material. This is designed to be light but protective of its contents. It has a useful zipped compartment for leads and accessories.

    There is another box within, which contains all of the accessories and manuals. The publicity photographs make a lot of the "wireless" capability of the headphones, but you do actually get a variety of leads in the matching dark red that is the trim for the main unit. The headphones turn and fold flat, which helps them fit into the pouch and take up less space than you would imagine, when you see them configured for use.

    These are substantial headphones and feel sturdy enough for most uses. There is a lot of matt black plastic, but the parts that make contact with you, are finished in a nice, soft leather material with a similar bar for cushioning at the top. The parts that extend are solid metal and alllow you to fit for comfort. In use they feel light enough and make a snug fit to cover your ears - meaning that not so much sound leaks out.

    I confirmed that for people around me, there is very little spillover sound and this is important to know if you are using them on trains or planes, as it can be annoying for fellow passengers. I compared this with my normal headphones and at high volumes there was a big difference with this unit delivering good volume with much less spill. This is the big difference in specification between the EVO Zx and ZxR - the ZxR has a "Circum-Aural" design, that surrounds the ears and helps to attenuate external noise.
