Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Creative HS-1200 Wireless X-Fi Gaming Headset Review - Creative HS-1200 Wireless X-Fi Gaming Headset Review
Fri, August 22 2008 | 6:55PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Gamers understand the value of headphones all too well: to avoid pesky restraining orders or plan a sneak attack during a LAN party, sometimes it's best to confine the sounds that populate the games we love to the space between the ears. However, anyone playing a game needs to add surround to their auditory experience, or risk missing critical (and enjoyable) audio details. One option is to go the hardware route: adding multiple drivers to each headphone cup, as Tritton did with their Audio Xtreme USB headset. But adding more hardware is expensive, so Creative is one of many companies opting for other option: simulated surround through software. Throw in a swivel-mounted microphone and a wireless receiver and you have the potential for an enclosed gamer's paradise, but potential and reality can be two very different states of being. How well do these HS-1200 X-Fi headphones work? Today, we'll find out.
