Originally designed for Creative Labs’ coL gaming team—and the team’s current headset of choice (along with Team Epsilon)—the Creative Sound BlasterX H5 Special Edition Headset is now available exclusively on Massdrop. With all the features of the original, but made with a more pronounced side plate for even more detail, this tournament-grade headset is limited to 400 units. Combining crisp audio and extreme comfort, it’s equipped with two 50-millimeter Full Spectrum drivers for immersive audio. Unique to the BlasterX H5 drivers is their tilted design, which creates a mini acoustic chamber to reduce resonance and increase sound separation. The headset comes pre-tuned out of the box so you can jump in the action right away.
Constructed with a steel and aluminum framework that pairs with soft-touch plastic, memory foam earpads, and plush leatherette, the headset is light enough to take on the go, but hefty enough to maintain its structural integrity. A flexible, reinforced steel band provides a snug fit without overpowering your dome. Anchored to the headset is a detachable noise-reduction microphone, which provides clear voice quality and can easily be removed for a transition to the streets. Quickly control volume, music, and voice calls right from the built-in inline remote, too. Plus, you can download Sound BlasterX Acoustic Engine Lite for professionally tweaked enhancements to boost your game.
