3.0 out of 5 stars Great sound, let down by design, 21 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Evo Wireless Bluetooth NFC Gaming Headset with USB and 3.5 mm Analogue Connection (PS4 / PC / MAC / Smart devices) (Electronics)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes, these sound great. I've had Creative headphones before and my experience with those, allied to the price point for this set, meant that I was expecting a decent performance. Rich and full sound reproduction, with (unusual these days) quite restrained bass performance. This means vocals and acoustic instruments become beautifully clear (I love to hear the sound of fingers sliding up a down a guitar's frets). You can use the Sound Blaster elements to boost sound reproduction, but the headphones need to be charged for this - and that does take a while. All good - isolation is decent, though the sound leakage is more than I was expecting. These won't match studio headphones, but they are a good home alternative sound-wise.

The Bluetooth connectivity is simple, but sound quality drops slightly. I just don't use it. The same with the mic for taking calls - it's not something I will ever use, though other reviewers have had plenty to say about its awfulness.

My biggest problem with these is how fragile they feel - yes, they fold down a little flatter and a pouch is provided, but their inherent "plasticky" feel means I would be worried about travelling with them (As a slight aside, why do manufacturers insist on using shiny black plastic for things like headphones? They end up constantly covered in fingerprints - drives me crazy.). They are, nevertheless, fine for home use with a laptop, smartphone, etc. but like a couple of other reviewers, I struggled with the fit on these - had to adjust them so they were quite snug on my head so that they felt "secure", but this resulted in them (a) becoming uncomfortable after around 30-40 minutes, and (b) causing my ears to overheat.
