Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Bluetooth audio profiles seem to simply be inadequate for any audio task other than talking on a phone."
_
"And not being an audio head, think they sound pretty good."
_
"If you want a set with great audio quality, consider this headset."
_
"If Creative were to give these better audio drivers with a wider frequency range, then they would be on to something."
_
"The Bluetooth connection is way more reliable and having the alternate to use the USB or audio cable which is an improved quality over the BT is nice."
_
"After doing some reading it would seem that at least some of the reason for that is that the outbound audio signal has to be compressed to work well on bluetooth."

Microphone

Microphone:
"My only complaint, the microphone I am told still has the feeling that it is far away."
_
"The z300 had So I returned it and got this which clearly proclaimed mac support on the front (and was available at the same brick and mortar store).I was skeptical about the no-boom mic, and it was not as bad as I feared, but still not as good as the boom mic on the z300 (for the short time I had the z300 working)."
_
"For gamers stay away from these headsets they are terrible the mic is useless."
_
"So I thought there is no way Creative would release such a bad product, went to exchange got a brand new one and still the same problem so I thought it was just a bad batch gave them one last chance went to another store and yup still the same god damn problem even with the new firmware the mic still sounds all echo."
_
"These are the worse headsets I've ever had from creative the mic is horrible for gaming the blue tooth does not even sync properly in windows 7 had to use windows 8 upgraded the the most recent firmware still sucks."
_
"I thought at first this was the reason my mic was not sounding right, but even hooking the headset up using the cable I still had sound problems with mic."
_
"Quality seemed great (though they hurt my head after a few minutes), loved the built in mic, sound was good but only in the right ear."
_
"I'll probably sell or donate these due to the size, but I hope creative figures out a better Bluetooth driver for PC that allows great sound quality in Mic mode like it does on Android."
_
"WHAT I DON'T LIKE   The microphone and CrystalVoice enhancement are OK at best."
_
"I also own a Skullcandy SLYR gaming headset, made by Astro, to compare mic quality with, as well as a Motorola S-11 Flex HD Bluetooth earbud and Jabra Extreme 2 Bluetooth Headset."
_
"Some may think, oh it's not fair comparing the SLYR since it has a boom mic, well the S-11 and Extreme 2 don't have booms and deliver better voice audio quality."
