Battery

Battery:
"The battery power isn't the greatest, it provides about eight hours of use, but the battery is internal and charges fairly rapidly via a 120V connector or the USB port of your computer."
_
"It's hard to believe there's a battery in there.6."
_
"the active noise canceling, talk through, battery life, comfort all are good."
_
"Sound is pretty decent and battery life is OK."
_
"And the battery will easily last 8-10 hours on a charge, even with noise cancelling and active mixing on."
_
"Pros- Excellent gaming headset, I was able to hear enemies walking up behind me in BF4 and it definitely gave me an edge- Bluetooth flawlessly paired up with my android phone, wife's iPhone, iPad mini, iPad2- Sound Blaster software is fantastic with 3 presets for gaming, music & movies, fits anything I needed so far- Voice crystalizer is a gimmick but it was fun at first for prank calling friends while speaking as elf, woman, demon, etc- USB cord is sturdy and was long enough for me- Excellent battery life- Music, movie, gaming sound is superb- Mike is not in your faceCons- No mute button!"
_
"The headset paired easily with my iOS devices and battery life was 7.5 for me (8hrs estimated on a 5hr AC charge).The fit is a bit snug, but I have a big head and they are definitely noise cancelling which with or without sound turned on - works well."

_
"- Great sound quality- 50mm drivers- Connectivity, 3.5mm jack, USB or bluetooth- Controls, easy to remember and accessCons:- Bulky- Non folding as the Zx- That red color is probably great with Ferrary wear, but with normal clothing, omg that is ugly- Awful passive active Noise Cancelation- Crackling driver noise while taking off or pressing the play pause button, that hurts my poor eardrumMost people don't realize that this headphone has a sound card imbued in it, meaning that yes, you can have effects, equalizer and all that set to it, connect to anything and have that sound equalized."

Button

Button:
"Only problem I had with these is that if you take them off quickly, or press the pause play button, you can hear the driver doing that plastic crackling noise, basically due to the negative (when taking of) or positive negative (when pressing the button) air pressure."
_
"There is no time to push any buttons to attempt to reset a timer."
_
"The buttons are functional, easy to find and intuitive even though you can't see them."
_
"PROS:- Clean, elegant red and black design- Volume switch much improved over volume buttons on Recon3D.- Cans are very comfortable to wear- Product packaging- Storage bag and airplane-compatible microphone jacks (whoever thought of this is brilliant)- Dual beamforming microphones- 50mm audio drivers sound better than the 40mm ones on my Recon 3D- Taking calls over music- Easy to use, real-time stable Android appCONS:- Weak PC compatibility, but I primarily use these with my phone."
_
"Additionally, the Sound Blaster headphones have very good placement of the buttons usb audio jack."
_
"There's forward and reverse buttons as well for skipping tracks (Etc), the SRX button which enables and disables the equalizer and software enhancements (not sure why you'd ever want it off.)"

Cable

Cable:
"I have no complaints, decent length cord for my purposes."
_
"It's broken into two cables."
_
"The only way I could use the headphones was via the usb cable which for my purposes was unacceptable."
_
"If you are a PC gamer, you will be forced to be tethered by the rather short and rigid USB cable, which makes for an unpleasant experience."
_
"Had a bit of an issue with the computer while on bluetooth, but using the USB cable turns these into a fantastic headphone even for computers."
_
"I use them unpowered all the time because the cord is much easier to move around and is quite long as compared to the USB cord."
_
"I will say they work well on my PC using the supplied USB cable but you can get some great wired headphones for a lot less money."
_
"I have no complaints, decent length cord for my purposes."
_
"It uses the typical USB cable for charging and a separate wall adapter so you can use the same cable to charge from your computer or from the wall - very nice attention to detail item."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"After losing my last set of really nice earbuds (which if I'm being honest with myself I sort of hated wearing, they weren't comfortable, but were great audio quality and expensive so I kept using them) I decided to be cheap and attempt to just use a pair of $25 Sennheiser headphones we had laying around."
_
"They are extremely comfortable, the sound quality is incredible, and the controls are excellent."
_
"the active noise canceling, talk through, battery life, comfort all are good."
_
"I am however, someone who appreciates comfort, clarity, and ok some bass in her headphones."
_
"I was a bit concerned about fit and comfort, it seems like most nicer headphones are designed for men, and I get that... most users are likely adult men... who apparently have a bigger head than I do These work for me, yes I wish they were a bit smaller or adjustable (they slide around a bit, but not off) but they aren't heavy, are padded nicely, and are comfortable... however if you have a small head you might want to see if you can find a pair to try on before ordering to make sure they will work for you."

Connection

Connection:
"They are good if you just want to use them to pair up with your phone or are using them via USB but for me the analog connection is a major FAIL! "
_
"The headband on the right side where the right speaker was connected broke off on me the 3rd day of receiving it."
_
"Somewhat confusing at first to get connected."
_
"My husband attempted to pair them with his ps3 to test out and while they connected he wasn't able to use them with Grand Theft Auto V (though reading online it sounds like the game might not support headphone use and frankly I didn't want him trying to steal them from me so I didn't let him mess around with them for long).No complaints at all! "
_
"DO NOT BUY THESE, sorry, I was hoping these would be the end all be all of wireless headsets, they are not, while they sound great while connected via USB (with a short included cord) they lose alot of functionality and fidelity when you go wireless."
_
"Sound is great but LACK bluetooth connectivity to the console can be a deal breaker to some."
_

_
"Good Connecting options Three way Bluetooth, USB, 3.5mm Jack."

"Multiple connected equipment:I had no problems when connected to my desktop PC with Bluetooth, and I read that I needed to see at least 2.1 so that I had to buy and work very well."

Control

Control:
"But I was thoroughly disappointed being that it sounded awful when plugged in to the Audio control module."
_
"It may not have the best mic set-up (with or without Creative Control Panel tweaks), but these are still some of the finest cans I've ever owned!"
_
"UPDATE: 12 13 13The EVO headset pairs with my Windows 7 PC using my same ol' Bluetooth USB adapter, but... it still shows a need for a driver (to troubleshoot) and despite showing up as a Creative product in my sound devices it is not recognized by the Creative SoundBlaster Control Panel while on Bluetooth (it will if tethered via USB).Bottom line - it's not the Bluetooth adapter as Creative kept telling me over and over again, it's something with this headset."
_
"So I am unable to install the control software."
_
"They are extremely comfortable, the sound quality is incredible, and the controls are excellent."
_
"- Great sound quality- 50mm drivers- Connectivity, 3.5mm jack, USB or bluetooth- Controls, easy to remember and accessCons:- Bulky- Non folding as the Zx- That red color is probably great with Ferrary wear, but with normal clothing, omg that is ugly- Awful passive active Noise Cancelation- Crackling driver noise while taking off or pressing the play pause button, that hurts my poor eardrumMost people don't realize that this headphone has a sound card imbued in it, meaning that yes, you can have effects, equalizer and all that set to it, connect to anything and have that sound equalized."
_
"Now this may be a problem with my phone (iPhone 4s), but I don't really have this problem with other control devices."
_
"These headphones will truly change the way you feel about your music, with all of the customizable options in the control apps, It's finally able to fine tunes things to everyone's liking and if you feel like sharing you can have multiple profiles so everything gets exactly what they want out of them!"
_
"Great sound, and easy to tweak in the Creative Control Panel."

Fit

Fit:
"Unfortunately for me, the fit was so snug, I really needed to take them off to chat even using that button."
_
"Part of this could be caused by the fact that they don't actually fit well against your head (several of us tried them on), so they can not block external sound enough to let the noise cancelling feature work."
_
"They fit extremely comfortably- even for a guy with a big noggin like me."
_
"The cups and the headband are soft and fit nicely without squeezing."
_
"I was a bit concerned about fit and comfort, it seems like most nicer headphones are designed for men, and I get that... most users are likely adult men... who apparently have a bigger head than I do These work for me, yes I wish they were a bit smaller or adjustable (they slide around a bit, but not off) but they aren't heavy, are padded nicely, and are comfortable... however if you have a small head you might want to see if you can find a pair to try on before ordering to make sure they will work for you."
_
"They are not lightweight in hand but once you put them on, they fit comfortably and snugly around your head and ears."

Listening

Listening:
"I'm not a gamer, but I enjoy listening to all kinds of music (rock, pop, country, classical, jazz) and wear headphones at least 5 days a week both in the gym and at the office."
_
"I'm Listening to Dream Theater DVD Audio disc right now, which was mixed with Dolby, and my head is spinning from everything I was missing (in terms of the audio placement) when listening to the regular CD in my old headphones."
_
"Music listening was great and making receiving calls was great also."
_
"Since it completely covers your ears you can enjoy what you are listening to with very little to no ambient noise leaking through."
_
"This is a little bit YMMV since the ambient volume and the comfortable listening volume on the headset will determine how much noise leaks through."
_
"I want to start by stating up front that although I enjoy an exceptional listening experience, I do not consider myself an audiophile."
_
"I love listening to my music, and this was a tempting purchase."

Microphone

Microphone:
"The microphone is horrible only on the xbox."
_
"Cracked right hinge, permanently folded earcup, defective battery, slow pairing with my Nexus 5 having to take multiple taps using NFC, and weird PC support where SB-Axx1 and the mic only worked on USB and not through bluetooth."
_
"It also has a hidden built-in mic, so you can use it to chat on the phone."
_
"The current line of Microphones is where my complaint resides."
_
"The mic seems to minimize the problem while presented inside of the sound blaster program but outside the echo and sound feedback increases drastically."
_
"It may not have the best mic set-up (with or without Creative Control Panel tweaks), but these are still some of the finest cans I've ever owned!"
_
"Love the sound great features one awesome feature was the mic boom that nobody talks about..Thnx"
_
"The microphones work too even when powered off, and used with the Creative Sound Blaster Zx, it can be used as a gaming headset with great quality."
_
"Or save yourself some money and get these: Motorola S305 Bluetooth Stereo Headset w Microphone ... if you just need a decent BT stereo headset."
_
"PROS:- Clean, elegant red and black design- Volume switch much improved over volume buttons on Recon3D.- Cans are very comfortable to wear- Product packaging- Storage bag and airplane-compatible microphone jacks (whoever thought of this is brilliant)- Dual beamforming microphones- 50mm audio drivers sound better than the 40mm ones on my Recon 3D- Taking calls over music- Easy to use, real-time stable Android appCONS:- Weak PC compatibility, but I primarily use these with my phone."

Noise

Noise:
"Only problem I had with these is that if you take them off quickly, or press the pause play button, you can hear the driver doing that plastic crackling noise, basically due to the negative (when taking of) or positive negative (when pressing the button) air pressure."
_
"There were two main reasons why I got the ZxR:1 - 50mm drivers2 - ANC (Active Noise Canceling)Turns out the ANC is not the best out there."
_
"The ANC (active noise cancelling) is not too good if I'm honest."
_
"don't by this headset... the ear cups are to small, there was a weird ringing noise in the left ear cup that drove me crazy, you need a Bluetooth pc for this headset to work said (which I do)."
_
"With music playing I couldn't notice any appreciable difference in ambient noise whether the feature was on or off."
_
"The noise cancellation was OK but not as impressive as the BOSE headphones I used to own."
_
"the active noise canceling, talk through, battery life, comfort all are good."
_
"Several o f my co-workers and I have the Bose noise cancelling headphones that work very well in our computer lab."
_
"They seemed to work well as regular headphones if you don't care about the noise cancelling feature."
_
"But the Creative set has noise cancelling, you say."
_
"Creative's idea of noise cancelling is more like adding white noise."

Plastic

Plastic:
"Only problem I had with these is that if you take them off quickly, or press the pause play button, you can hear the driver doing that plastic crackling noise, basically due to the negative (when taking of) or positive negative (when pressing the button) air pressure."
_
"Exactly one month later and the plastic broke off horizontally along the two upper screws so it became useless as it would no longer stay on your head properly so I sent it back for a refund."
_
"The three screws that hold the assembly in places are too short and the plastic that the screws go into broke off the plastic plate."
_
"However, with in a week of regular usage both ends of the swivel joints plastic had broken."
_
"Less than 12 hours after receiving this item and placing it on my head for the second time, the screws in the headband stripped out and broke the cheap plastic."
_
"Plastic Headbands needs good care, still now I don't have any issues as I am keeping it safe (3 months old)."
_
"Performance quite good but the plastic assembly components and easily damaged causing failure of headset."

Price

Price:
"Less than 12 hours after receiving this item and placing it on my head for the second time, the screws in the headband stripped out and broke the cheap plastic."
_
"Amazon wants to send me a new device, but the problem is, for $300, the cheap plastic made the earcup break (it broke where the small screw attaches to the plastic)If you are over 12, DO NOT buy this item, sooner or later, your head will break the device.100% of headphones out there need to allow you to open them, they need elasticity, in order for you to open them, place your head in the middle, and then collapse the headphones so they attach to your headThis constant movement will inevitable (unless you're a kid) put pressure on the non replaceable plastic earcup, and the way the earcup is attached to the head band, (cheap plastic), will inevitable break the headphone."
_
"Pity though, for headphones that sound so good they are not well made....especially for the price."
_
"After losing my last set of really nice earbuds (which if I'm being honest with myself I sort of hated wearing, they weren't comfortable, but were great audio quality and expensive so I kept using them) I decided to be cheap and attempt to just use a pair of $25 Sennheiser headphones we had laying around."
_
"However, the ZxR was very disappointing and I expected much more from Creative (not to mention the $299 price)."
_
"These are great wireless headphones, and I do feel bad about returning them, I enjoyed them very much during the week I had them and while I was comparing with other headphones, I payed $200 due to Creative's promotion otherwise it would have been the original $300 tag, and at that price range, there are much better options for Noise Canceling."
_
"When you consider that the Bose Quiet Comfort 15 Noise Cancelling cans sell for the same price on Amazon, I can't fathom why anyone would opt for the Creative EVO ZxR set."
_
"I will say they work well on my PC using the supplied USB cable but you can get some great wired headphones for a lot less money."
_
"They deserve it for the above features, especially at the very reasonable three hundred dollar price point, well priced for the features."
_
"I'll probably pick up a bluetooth receiver in order to use this set wirelessly, but it would have been nice if it were included (considering the price).Finally, audio quality is where this headset shines..."

"The Recon 3Ds have better sounding bass, IMO.- NFC didn't work with my phone, but this was a Samsung issueI haven't encountered any of the quality problems that the other reviewers mentioned."

"Not a fun conversation, but a testament to the quality of voice filter nonetheless."

_
"Comfortable to wear and lightweight, despite the size."

"However, upon closer inspection, I can see these are so much better made, with small details that really make a difference in comfort and function."

_
"Perhaps a much better option, if you don't mind the 40mm drivers, would be the Zx, which is about 25% cheaper now and even just the EVO Wireless, if you're not that crazy due to the equalizer, I kid you not, these sound great even without the SB-Axx1 chip."
_
"So, they are air tight, but don't muffle much, and still risk damaging the drivers, not to mention that sound is quite painful to hear as the driver is just a quarter of an inch away from your ears."
_
"I then tried connecting them to my home receiver to see if the sound was any better it was horrible."
_
"The sound was better than my old WoW sound blaster which also broke in a similar fashion."

"- Great sound quality- 50mm drivers- Connectivity, 3.5mm jack, USB or bluetooth- Controls, easy to remember and accessCons:- Bulky- Non folding as the Zx- That red color is probably great with Ferrary wear, but with normal clothing, omg that is ugly- Awful passive active Noise Cancelation- Crackling driver noise while taking off or pressing the play pause button, that hurts my poor eardrumMost people don't realize that this headphone has a sound card imbued in it, meaning that yes, you can have effects, equalizer and all that set to it, connect to anything and have that sound equalized."

"Pros- Excellent gaming headset, I was able to hear enemies walking up behind me in BF4 and it definitely gave me an edge- Bluetooth flawlessly paired up with my android phone, wife's iPhone, iPad mini, iPad2- Sound Blaster software is fantastic with 3 presets for gaming, music & movies, fits anything I needed so far- Voice crystalizer is a gimmick but it was fun at first for prank calling friends while speaking as elf, woman, demon, etc- USB cord is sturdy and was long enough for me- Excellent battery life- Music, movie, gaming sound is superb- Mike is not in your faceCons- No mute button!"
