Creative HS800 Fatal1ty Gaming Headset with Detachable Noise-cancelling Microphone (PC/MAC) - Black.
From the Manufacturer
Power, Precision and Comfort
Creative's Fatal1ty Gamer Headset provides power, precision and comfort for the serious gamer. The ergonomic, lightweight design, with padded velvet earpieces and headband, ensures a comfortable fit during extended gaming sessions. Weapons, positional cues and environmental audio effects sound good through the high-quality drivers, with bass response for powerful explosions.
Detachable, Noise-Canceling Microphone
The HS-800 Fatal1ty features a military-grade, noise-canceling microphone so your orders will be heard loud and clear by your team. The flexible boom microphone is adjustable to fit the contours of your face, enabling clear voice communications. Also, the microphone cord features in-line controls enabling you to easily adjust your sound level or mute the mic on the fly for private conversations. And after you've finished gaming, you can detach the microphone and use the HS-800 to listen to your favourite tunes.
Powerful Neodymium Magnets for Realistic Sound
The HS-800 features two large 40 mm drivers powered by Neodymium magnets that capture every whizzing bullet and clanging sword in realistic detail. You'll be able to hunt down your enemies with ease thanks to the accurately rendered audio cues, while the bass response will let you hear the powerful immediacy of every explosion. The HS-800 features a generous 8 ft cable that provides a pure signal with clarity.
Why Fatal1ty Uses It
The noise-cancelling microphone transmits voice commands clearly to other team members and it can be detached for easy storage or to use the headset like regular headphones. In the heat of battle this is the headset that won’t leave people stranded - and that’s why Johnathan ’Fatal1ty’ Wendel, one of the world’s best known pro gamers, uses it.

The sound quality is excellent, the difference I noticed going from my previous pair (which admittedly were bought on a much smaller budget), was so great it spurred me to open up amazon and give this a good review!
Of this headset's audio am most impressed by the bass; it really adds alot more depth to those explosions :)
The detachable microphone is a good idea; i haven't had any problems with it, however I usually leave it connected so i don't lose it! The sound quality you get from it is pretty good too.
The size of the headset (the band which goes over your head) can be adjusted, as with most headsets. I needed to make the band as short as possible to get the perfect fit, and my head isn't particularly small, so if you have a smallish head it may not fit too well.
Overall i'd say its well worth your money even if you aren't much of gamer; it works very well for music and Skype too.
I also meant to buy the usb version but accidentally bought the jack mic, just make sure you have the correct one.
The only gripe for me with this headset is the removable microphone. The socket in which to attach the microphone is rather stiff, so you're better off keeping the microphone plugged in at all times and just bend it upwards when not in use.
Not quite perfection, but this headset from Creative comes very close.
Quality headset, might even get the same one again... Or I might splash out on superior sound quality. But, you get what you pay for and for this price, they're a quality headset for any gamer.

Ok but not great for people with larger ear flaps like me... to be comfortable I have to wear them as if they are on-ear (when I prefer over-ear).Published 15 days ago by Andy Beans
