You can always count on the gaming peripheral scene to be one of the most active segment of the gaming market. Even when there’s no hot game releases, there’s almost always a brand new gaming headset popping up somewhere. Back in the days though nearly everyone banked on one name when it came to gaming audio and that name is Creative and its SoundBlaster audio solution. Even right now in modern times, Creative’s product lines are the top brass when it comes to dedicated audio solutions for gamers and enthusiasts and now they are bringing their expertise directly to gamers’ ears with their SoundBlaster gaming line of audio peripherals. We’re checking out two offerings this week and we have Creative’s Tactic3D Sigma gaming headset for this review and you can check out the wireless version, Omega, on our other review here. Let’s get blasting and let’s make this showy!
Creative has been in the computer audio industry for as long as everyone has computers. Back in the days, Creative owned the audio arena by introducting their SoundBlaster solution and ever since then its just smooth-sailing. Up until recent times that is. The discrete PC audio market hasn’t seen much action in recent years so Creative has stepped into new territories with a dedicated gaming line. The SoundBlaster gaming series features a lot of solutions for gamers and enthusiasts and has multiple features to suit varying tastes. This week we have two entries in the Tactic3D line, the Sigma and Omega. For this review we will be focusing on the Sigma gaming headset which includes the Tactic3D sound engine. Check out the Omega here. Let’s check out some specs and pics.
