Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Bluetooth

Bluetooth:
"The product title is alittle confusing i think as they say 'Wireless' but they mean just Bluetooth."
_
"I don't have an NFC enabled phone so I wasn't able to test that connection feature, but manual Bluetooth pairing was a breeze and almost automatic."
_
"The Bluetooth works flawlessly, and the sound I would say is excellent for everyday use."
_
"However, the Bluetooth is nice."
_
"Also i have the ZXR Sound card so i really didnt need a soundcard in my headset and APTX is good enough for me for smartphone bluetooth usage."
_
"These headphones are great - the bluetooth feature synced perfectly with my iPhone the first time I used them and the sound quality was great."
_
"This is my third premium (>$100) Bluetooth headset, and so I am already pretty well acquainted with the features and limitations of this product category."

Cable

Cable:

_
"The option of Bluetooth wireless, USB cable or analog connection as well as the ability to connect to multiple devices at one time was a huge plus."

"USB cable hook-up and charging work perfectly."
_
"I also tried them out with the USB cable into the front panel audio and they work well also but the best sound from this system is from the sound card."
_
"Pros:Clear audio from 40mm driversSturdy constructionMultiple inputsgreat battery lifeCons:Rests on ears and not overNeeds 4 pole splitter adapter for some devices(3ds, anything that doesn't have mic in support).Cables are a bit stuff, but of great quality."
_
"That said, with the included cable, they power nicely, as the drivers are relatively sensitive."

"- I attempt to start the Sound Blaster Evo Control Panel and get an error - The audio drivers required for this application cannot be detected."

"Pressing an integrated button on the rt earcup to answer a phone call is slick (sort of)3) Ear cups light up red if using the Creative control panel on your Win 7,8,10 box with USB, but not with the 3.5mm jack4) Fold flat for travel."

"They have a control panel you can download from creative for these that help when just plugged into the front panel audio with USB cable."

_
"The controls on the headphone are quite nice and intuitive."
_
"Mic noise cancelling, voice effects, and all sorts of ways to change the type of sound you receive, including the virtual 7.1 surround sound, were all great parts of the control panel which can also be used with the other Creative EVO headsets."

Microphone

Microphone:
"Unfortunately, the microphone doesn't pickup sound well enough to be accurate for that purpose."
_
"The mic may not be the best in the business, but it works well enough for home and school use and it has many advantages over others available, especially the fact that it is built right into the earphones with no boom to break off, cause distraction or discomfort and yet has NCT."
_
"With other headsets, in the past, the boom mic has broken, the foam earpads have dissolved, plastic parts have cracked, etc."
_
"The microphone picks up almost TOO much - there's not a good filter on it and a boom mic has more directional control."
_
"I wasn't able to test the mic or gaming features."
_
"Unfortunately, the microphone doesn't pickup sound well enough to be accurate for that purpose."
_
"Fantastic sound quality, average quality for the microphone, but very function for everyday gaming use."
_
"Great pair of headphones, I'm a big fan of the sound quality on the speakers and the microphone, and they're fairly comfortable even after wearing for hours of coding, writing, gaming, etc."
_
"The microphone integrated in is very good at picking up voice."
_
"This is to be somewhat expected considering the style of microphoneIf I had to do this again, I'd probably stick with JUST headphones and get something truly comfortable, and use the built in microphone on the computer."

_
"The positioning of the wheel should preclude accidental changes- The headset is reasonably comfortable with good weight distribution- I find that the on-the-ear pads are soft and not too tight- The headset provides decent external noise reduction because of the ear-pad- The microphone sounds warm with my voice - not crystal clear."
_
"So yes, these will be more than enough for those who cannot afford the very best, yet can't stand cheaper sounding headphones."
_
"Music wise, I could not believe how great they sound!"
_
"When I tried to record from the computer it was a bit awkward to have to use a VOIP Bluetooth profile to record using the mics, but it would only ever record mostly blank sound with weird clicking, and had the same effect when I tried to use them with Skype which they were meant to be used for."
_
"40mm neodymium drivers should ensure at least reasonable sound quality."
_
"I have to wonder about some of the folks who have reviewed these and think that the sound quality is satisfactory."
_
"Unfortunately, the microphone doesn't pickup sound well enough to be accurate for that purpose."
_
"I am not an expert here, and as mentioned, that is not the feature I was most concerned with, but I was very impressed with the rich, clear sound in all ranges."
_
"My first surprise was the amazing sound quality of the speakers."

USB:

_
"Pressing an integrated button on the rt earcup to answer a phone call is slick (sort of)3) Ear cups light up red if using the Creative control panel on your Win 7,8,10 box with USB, but not with the 3.5mm jack4) Fold flat for travel."
