X-Plus is specifically developed with pro-gaming requirements. When configured, X-Plus relegates non-critical audio cues specific to most popular competitive games today. So, it bumps up the key audio cues for an extra gaming advantage!
Being tournament-ready, you can save your X-Plus sound preferences right into the headset, so it will reproduce your sound configuration without any need to install software when you're connected to different gaming setups.
The Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition is designed with a tilt driver implementation that creates a mini acoustic chamber to minimize resonance within the earcups. The result is that you experience extra clarity across the frequencies and better sound separation where every detail crisp and clear.
Tapping into our rich history of creating bleeding-edge audio algorithms, our engineers have crafted an audio engine optimized for gaming. The BlasterX Acoustic Engine Pro is a suite of fully customizable audio processing technologies developed and tuned specially for the Sound BlasterX H7 Tournament Edition to deliver new levels of audio immersion and precision for the ultimate competitive advantage.

Set in a real-world situation, Counter Strike: Global Offensive is a team-based action game that requires players to dodge enemy gunfire while discharging firearms with pinpoint accuracy. While you're making calculated moves, you will pick up a range of audio details from explosions and gunfire to bomb-planting and defusing. Hence, our precise tuning combined with our in-depth understanding of the Source Engine gives you better hearing and better control of your environment, so you can hit your enemies with your best shot (preferably in the head).
There's something transcendental about sound. It not only takes us from destination A to destination B, but also acts as our eyes that hint at the possible perils that could kill you in an ambush. We aspire to fill up every nook and cranny of your gaming environment with the best possible audio cues, so you can slay your enemy's Ancient without worries. Let your ears pick up the essential cues, namely spells, ability charge-ups or even your fellow teammate's cry for help! With our custom audio tuning, you're well covered in your gameplay.

I had a used Creative headset - one of the older ones that used wireless connection with a usb stick - and it lasted 5 years before any issues came out of it after have already being used by someone for a few years before me. The long lasting quality was enough to sell me on the brand, and when I bought their premium headset, I was not disappointed. The surround sound rivals that of the top brand Turtle beaches, the sound cancelling is phenomenal, the fact that I can use it with my Xbox One makes it a great buy for more than just PC use. I use the headset for Gaming, mixing music, listening to music, and chatting on Discord. It plays ball in all the fields with no issue. By far this is the best headset I've ever owned. Feels super solid, I can wear it for 8 hours at a time with no discomfort around my ears, the sound quality is awesome, and I just cannot give enough praise to this headset or Creative's support staff.
