Introduction Headsets are devices I’ve avoided most of me life. Being a PC gamer, it seems odd to say this. On the other hand, when I would try a headset, I would find them, hot, uncomfortable, and lacking the type of sound quality I’ve come to expect from a good pair of book shelf speakers with a quality amplifier. CREATIVE set out to change my opinion (unawares) by sending me the Sound BlasterX H5 gaming headset to review. The timing couldn’t be better since I was about to pull the trigger on something to help hide the noise of my various games and speech clients from my family. I thought I would be sacrificing my comfort, but I found an experience that I wasn’t sure even existed until now. Before we jump into the details, let’s look at a bit of info on CREATIVE, the company behind the Sound BlasterX H5. Also, check out the video review featured above!
