Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"As a whole, the extremely poor design, material quality, and crappy ergonomics torpedo any stellar audio qualities that would otherwise make this a 5-star product, based upon sound-performance alone."
_
"As far as audio quality goes, this set sounds great."
_
"The sound quality is fantastic, right on par with good audio headsets."
_
"Great product so far - the bass boost is a great feature, and because I have my TV and computer in my living room, I was able to connect the wireless hub to each, making switching a breeze (switching may be somewhat more difficult if you have to move the hub back and forth, though not as difficult as some reviewers seem to think).Pros:+Fantastic sound quality with a very nice software suite that lives up to Creative's name, including an equalizer, adjustments for the THX faux-surround sound.+Comes with everything you need to hook it up to both your computer and TV (assuming you have the white red audio outputs on your TV).+Great microphone which works well for both xbox live (with the included cord to connect it to your controller) and your computer.+Very comfortable, doesn't crush my head and I often forget I'm wearing it thanks to the padding.+Reduces the sound you hear without making you completely deaf to your environment - I think this is actually one of the more underestimated aspects of a headset."
_
"Pros:Great audio quality, easy setup, software works well and the stand is nice."
_
"Run a cable into your old iPod, and you have it (or any other old audio source) connected as well."

Battery

Battery:
"Only complaint is when the battery is about to run out, It beeps for about a minute and then it cuts off."
_
"Battery life is *OK* but not great."
_
"Do I want inductive charging so that I cannot use the headphones when the battery is dead - no."
_
"The battery life is pretty dismal as well."
_
"I get over 12 hours of constant use out of them, so a good long battery life and they're comfortable to wear for long periods."
_
"Headset sounds pretty good and the simulated 7.1 is pretty clear and easy to distinguish and the battery life on this bad boy is amazing if you only set the volume to around 50% (which is quite loud i usually ran it around 30%) it can last as much as 10 hours on 1 charge."
_
"Battery life is good, last about 6 hours plus or minus a bit depending on what your listening."
_
"The headset, made of flexible plastic is done well and has an onboard rechargeeable battery that lasts quite a while, probably at least a few days with a good 4 hours of gameplay."

Cable

Cable:
"Another drawback is that there was no power cord to plug into a wall outlet that would charge the device."
_
"Like everyone else, it took me a while (days, unfortunately) to realize that I would need to use the RCA cables from the PS3 to use these to their fullest potential."
_
"Once I was able to wrap my head around the fact that I'd have to dig for my RCA cables from the PS3 box, I plugged them in, followed the slightly confusing instructions that came with the headset, and played away."
_
"It seems you could hook up sound with the included RCA cable and make some sort of bypass but it's an annoying process."
_
"A longer thinner cord could easily supply enough power to keep these charged."
_
"This wouldn't be such a problem if the power USB cord they supplied wasn't a gargantuan unflexible monstrosity."
_
"Fortunatly the cord is still intact, and I was able to tape it and can still use it, it just doesn't sit tight naymore."
_
"Great product so far - the bass boost is a great feature, and because I have my TV and computer in my living room, I was able to connect the wireless hub to each, making switching a breeze (switching may be somewhat more difficult if you have to move the hub back and forth, though not as difficult as some reviewers seem to think).Pros:+Fantastic sound quality with a very nice software suite that lives up to Creative's name, including an equalizer, adjustments for the THX faux-surround sound.+Comes with everything you need to hook it up to both your computer and TV (assuming you have the white red audio outputs on your TV).+Great microphone which works well for both xbox live (with the included cord to connect it to your controller) and your computer.+Very comfortable, doesn't crush my head and I often forget I'm wearing it thanks to the padding.+Reduces the sound you hear without making you completely deaf to your environment - I think this is actually one of the more underestimated aspects of a headset."
_
"I had it connected via HDMI so i plugged in the RCA cables and connected it to the audio out part of my tv then plugged in the usb cable to the xbox 360 and was good to go."

Charging

Charging:
"The charging light constantly flashes when charging - can be annoying seeing it out of the corner of the eye."
_
"The only downside is that you pretty much HAVE to charge it every night and it's not a set you could keep on all day night long."
_
"That takes 5 minutes, but unfortunately it really does take 8 HOURS to charge the headset the first time :( Even after ~2 hours, they wouldn't turn on...after that I went to sleep & when I woke up they were ready to go :)All of that is great & this headset is worth considering, as long as you don't intend to use it on another system."
_
"Do I want inductive charging so that I cannot use the headphones when the battery is dead - no."
_
"The only solution is to purchase Creative's new Recon external sound driver - it works on consoles and interfaces with this headset but costs another $130.Finally - people are complaining regarding the corded mini-usb charging system which initially was a pain for me as well."
_
"They have started complaining and it was never a problem with my $20 headphones.2) Charging port - Now come on, I have to open a rubber cover to plug the micro USB each time."
_
"- easy and fast charging- all components on my pc set up have a lighting blue, this headset has blue lighting."
_
"The only downside is that you pretty much HAVE to charge it every night and it's not a set you could keep on all day night long."
_
"Then I had a DUH moment when I sat there, thinking how clever Creative was to allow inductive charging, needing no connection of the charging base to the headphones themselves."
_
"The only solution is to purchase Creative's new Recon external sound driver - it works on consoles and interfaces with this headset but costs another $130.Finally - people are complaining regarding the corded mini-usb charging system which initially was a pain for me as well."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"While the sound quality is vastly superior, the comfort of the headphones is very disappointing."
_
"As fancy as these things are, as snazzy as they look and as comfortable as they feel, this package is missing something that literally blows my mind as to why they would have left it out in the first place."
_
"While the sound quality is vastly superior, the comfort of the headphones is very disappointing."
_
"I get over 12 hours of constant use out of them, so a good long battery life and they're comfortable to wear for long periods."
_
"It is very comfortable and the sound quality is great."
_
"The sound is great, the installation was easy, and it was very comfortable."
_

Gaming

Gaming:
"It may not be the best on the market but in terms of all-in-one gaming, it can't be beat! "
_
"So with very little force, spreading the headset to fit on my head the ear piece broke right off when beginning a gaming session."
_
"I only found them after becoming extremely frustrated by the options in the gaming section at Best Buy so after some online research decided to try them @ $169---- now a lot cheaper---(they weren't located in the gaming console area but in the computer component area which is why I hadn't come across them before)."
_
"Great gaming headset."
_
"Excellent product for my gaming PC and PS3."
_
"Amazing reception for gaming"
_
"Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega Wireless Gaming Headset is a wonderful sounding product !"
_
"Very Good Option, PC gaming audio at it's best."

Microphone

Microphone:
"One day I was putting it on my head and the left ear cup broke off (mic side)."
_
"Within a few more months, the other earcup broke and came loose, and within a few days of that, the microphone stopped working."
_
"In the beginning these gave my head quite a squeeze and were not as comfortable as the Sennheiser HD202 I had a mic attached to."
_
"While this headset conveniently has a push button to switch between PC & Console, it's anything but convenient :(Unfortunately, Creative uses the USB for both drivers & mic usage, meaning that whenever you switch modes a new driver has to load on the PC so don't expect instant switching."
_
"Pros:Very easy set up, just two USB cables to connect to the computerGood sound, very clearDecent battery lifeGood range- can hear from almost every room in a 1000 sq feet upstairs, most of downstairs except the living room, but we also have issues with cells and the wireless router so I think we have some weird blocking issue in the living roomThe Mic can be easily positioned and picks up very little background noise, the people I play with can hear me clearly."
_
"My friends say the mic is clear and I am easy to understand."
_
"The sound is fantastic, the mic clear, the software suite excellent (downloadable from Creative)."
_
"The microphone is very good as well."
_
"Comparing to the Corsair Vengeance 2100 wireless...these are more comfortable and feel much lighter, the microphone is out of the way and the sound is much better."
_
"The sound was good and the mic quality was as well."

Quality

Quality:
"In short, I love the sound quality of these, but based on all the other cons I would absolutely not recommend them to anyone else or buy them again."
_
"While the sound quality is vastly superior, the comfort of the headphones is very disappointing."
_
"First of all the sound quality isn't the greatest thing I have ever heard."
_
"As a whole, the extremely poor design, material quality, and crappy ergonomics torpedo any stellar audio qualities that would otherwise make this a 5-star product, based upon sound-performance alone."

Range

Range:
"I found the headset quite cheep feeling and uncomfortable plus the range is only half of what my Sony Pulse Elite's are and only 1 3 of what my Logitech's range is."
_
"The range isn't very great, but my area is saturated with wireless networks, and typically I don't go very far from the receiver anyway so for me not a huge issue."
_
"So the durability is pretty ok. Sound is beautiful, and the range of it is a solid 20 foot."
_
"The range is great."
_
"Excellent range and clarity with very little distortion."
_
"These headphones come at various price ranges, and the Creative is near the top - but it's near the top (if not the top) of sound reproduction."
_
"I am an owner of Astro A40s and Tritton AX Pros and the immersion, excellent noticeable frequency range, and quality of construction are fantastic."

Setup

Setup:
"Due to the ridiculous stand setup arrangement, you can NOT use these headphones while they are plugged in."
_
"* FOR XBOX 360:This is the most annoying setup, although I believe this is a limitation of the XBOX rather than the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega headset."
_
"About the only negative thing I can say about first time setup is that you have to charge the headset for 8 hours before first use."
_
"For a wireless headset, the set-up was easy and quick."
_
"Setup was easy."
_
"Pros:Great audio quality, easy setup, software works well and the stand is nice."

_
"No hassle in setup, no degree needed."

Sound

Sound:
"I like good sound and they met my needs but disappointed in the durability sucked."
_
"First of all the sound quality isn't the greatest thing I have ever heard."
_
"I Use It To Play Call Of Duty And The Foot Steps Are Confusing, Anytime I Talk To Somebody It Sounds Muffled, It Randomly Cuts Out, And Randomly makes A buzzing Sound That Drives The Other Players Crazy, and Lately It Makes My Ears Hurt For Hours After Wearing Them.... Fyi I Buy Stuff Online All The Time And This Is The First Time I Have Ever Left A Bad Review Like This So save Your Money...."
_
"The sound was disappointed, it was no where near as good as the PC or Mac, they sound just like my old logitech headphones."
_
"Only with my Omega's do I sometimes get confused as to whether the sound is coming from my headphones or my surround sound."
_
"The sound was terrific."
_
"Outstanding sound, terrific noise canceling, great earphones."
_
"(Although the sound is still very nice)"
_
"The reason I rated this so low was because despite great sound quality (which Creative is good with."

Volume

Volume:
"I also felt that the volume buttons were a bit unresponsive."
_
"I would personally like to see the POWER button moved, because when wearing the headset and fiddling for the volume, it's easy to hit by mistake."
_
"With my past phones there has always been an annoying level of clipped feedback when cranking the volume, but not so here with the Sound Blaster."
_
"Headset sounds pretty good and the simulated 7.1 is pretty clear and easy to distinguish and the battery life on this bad boy is amazing if you only set the volume to around 50% (which is quite loud i usually ran it around 30%) it can last as much as 10 hours on 1 charge."
_
"The only thing better I found about the 2100s was the volume control was easier to locate and easier to use."
_
"the amount of cords involved playing xbox with the V2 is outrageous, and it was way too easy to bump the volume slider and blow your ears out."
_
"So far I have not found any issues with this headset, I love how loud they can get when at max volume."
_
"The sound quality is great and it allows me to play my games at a nice volume without disturbing my girlfriend."

Wireless

Wireless:
"The biggest problem with wireless headsets seems to be reliability after 6-12 months, however, so I can't speak to that aspect of them."
_
"Constant problems with connecting headset to the wireless receiver."
_
"The range isn't very great, but my area is saturated with wireless networks, and typically I don't go very far from the receiver anyway so for me not a huge issue."
_
"Not to mention the wireless signal is not easily disrupted by other wireless signals like my Logitech G390's (my 930's would disconnect and reconnect randomly, these have never done that so far).Cons:They hurt your ears, the padding is insufficient to keep the headphones from touching your ears."
_
"Notes:From the looks of it, all of Creative's wireless headsets share this problem with no space between the plastic and your ears."
_
"if you are looking for a great pair of wireless headphones this is the one to get."
_
"So FAr is sounds amazing for the price and being wireless."
_
"Comparing to the Corsair Vengeance 2100 wireless...these are more comfortable and feel much lighter, the microphone is out of the way and the sound is much better."
_
"These are excellent wireless headphones."

Xbox

Xbox:
"* FOR XBOX 360:This is the most annoying setup, although I believe this is a limitation of the XBOX rather than the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega headset."
_
"The only problem I found was hooking these up to my Xbox 360, but this wasn't really a surprise."
_
"Great product so far - the bass boost is a great feature, and because I have my TV and computer in my living room, I was able to connect the wireless hub to each, making switching a breeze (switching may be somewhat more difficult if you have to move the hub back and forth, though not as difficult as some reviewers seem to think).Pros:+Fantastic sound quality with a very nice software suite that lives up to Creative's name, including an equalizer, adjustments for the THX faux-surround sound.+Comes with everything you need to hook it up to both your computer and TV (assuming you have the white red audio outputs on your TV).+Great microphone which works well for both xbox live (with the included cord to connect it to your controller) and your computer.+Very comfortable, doesn't crush my head and I often forget I'm wearing it thanks to the padding.+Reduces the sound you hear without making you completely deaf to your environment - I think this is actually one of the more underestimated aspects of a headset."
_
")I strongly urge anyone who plays a decent amount of xbox with headphones just spend the extra $$ and get wireless - its definitely worth it."
_

_
"the amount of cords involved playing xbox with the V2 is outrageous, and it was way too easy to bump the volume slider and blow your ears out."
