At Gamescom and IFA 2015, Creative unveiled several new headsets from its Sound BlasterX series, which are already available in stores. We tested one of the new top models, the Creative Sound BlasterX H5. The analog gamer headset convinced us because it is very robust and offers a clear sound. Everything else in the following.
Scope of Delivery
The Creative Sound BlasterX H5 headset is not delivered in a normal cardboard box, but in a round plastic ball with a window. This can also be used as a transport box after unpacking. But Creative went to a lot of trouble packing the headset, because it’s glued a lot and you need a lot of patience until you can hold your new headset in your hands.
In addition to the headphones, a detachable microphone, a connection cable (1.2 m) with integrated remote control and a Y splitter cable (1.2 m) are also supplied. Of course, the short manual should not be missing either.
