Audio Profiles

Sound is Your Biggest Ally

Just imagine yourself surrounded by blind spots that make it visually impossible to get around. Who knows, you might even find yourself dead. So, what if one split second could alter your fate? Or perhaps, the distant shrill of a siren could hint at certain dangers looming ahead of you. As the cornerstone of your victory, we have a list of audio profiles, which is specially tuned to help you realize the potential of sound, your biggest ally.

Call of Duty Series

Incorporating other time periods and conflicts, gamers can experience war in an epic scale with our specialized audio tuning for the series, which spans from Call of Duty 2 to dark and gritty 21st Century Call of Duty Black Ops 3, eliminating masses of bots and human foes alike. Imagine yourself thrown into a conflicted environment (zombies included too). Put on your solid headset, and select the audio profile for Call of Duty series. Then, let our SBX surround technology and custom EQ effects surprise you with the essence and detail, especially when you expand bullets from the weapon of your choice.

Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Set in a real-world situation, Counter Strike: Global Offensive is a team-based action gameplay that requires players to deal with discharging of firearms, dodging gunfires and nonetheless, pinpoint accuracy of a gunshot. While you're making your calculated moves, you will pick up a range of details from an explosion of gunfire, hand-loading, to bomb planting and defusing, and other minute cues you can't see. Hence, our precision tuning combined with our in-depth understanding of the Source Engine gives you better hearing, better control of your environment. So you can hit your enemies with your best shot (possibly in the head).

DotA 2

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.

REVIEWS

Gameranx

The H7 is fairly inexpensive for the features it offers and its solid build quality. The 7.1 audio offers precise directional sound in 3D games, and the fact that it can hook up directly to the PS4 without turning your desktop into a mess of wires offers it a major advantage over other products in the same price range. Overall, Creative did an excellent job with the Sound BlasterX H7.

Sound quality was exceptionally good. Overall I was impressed with the level of clarity and definition the H7 brought to my games. I was a little disappointed that the X-Plus software only came with six audio profiles. They do cover the major game genres allowing you a few options to try out.

The Sound BlasterX H7 headset is a must-buy at the current price point. While the dongle might prove annoying at first, and despite the lack of a retractable microphone, there are not many things to gripe about when using this headset. Audio quality is great, microphone quality is superb, the the comfort is out of this world. If you are looking for a sub $150 headset, I highly recommend the Sound BlasterX H7.

Most comfortable headset I own. [The] sound is incredible. Stylish and immersive experiences.

T. Townsend

The sound is amazing, both for watching movies and for listening to music. I play Tom Clancy: Siege and due to a number of other sounds, the "scout" mode enhances other noises you might not want to hear. They do, however, support other games such as Call of Duty and Counter Strike Global Offensive, and those work brilliantly. The detachable microphone is brilliant, and if you do not think it is up to par you can easily get another one. However, I have no problems with the current one at all, you can even make yourself sound like an ORC within the driver settings, just because. Overall, the microphone and overall sound quality is really high. The driver doesn't have that much to offer but if you want to tweak stuff yourself you can, if you know what you're doing. The price is about right for this quality headset. Beats any other headset I have owned.
