These helmets for games provide powerful audio for PC, PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch. Besides these Creative Sound BlasterX H6 boast good ergonomics and RGB lighting. All this at a very restrained price.
Sound BlasterX H6, comfortable for many hours
To start, we must say that These Sound BlasterX H6 have been designed so that we can wear them with total comfort for many hours. Its headphones (which by the way, are removable), are made of a mesh fabric, which will allow heat to dissipate more easily. Inside it has a type of memory foam, which adapts perfectly to the shape of the head.
Another point that has caught our attention in these Creative Sound BlasterX H6 helmets, is that its clamping force is less than 600 grams. This means that they will fit very well and They will not put a lot of pressure on the head. Keep in mind that these headband headphones (height adjustable) are circumaural, that is, the pads are going to cover our ears completely.
RGB lighting Aurora Reactive
These Sound BlasterX H6 helmets incorporate a ring with RGB Aurora Reactive lighting, which you will be able to customize with special effects and choosing between 16 million colors. In general, as you can see in the images, the all-black design is quite sober, although the lighting system gives it that gaming touch that could not be missing in this type of headphones. By the way, inside each of the headphones, we can distinguish the L (left) or the R (right), so that we know which one corresponds to the headset on the left, and which one on the left.
Controls and ports
Regarding the controls of these Creative gaming headphones, comment that they have been strategically placed in the left cup, so you never have to remove your right hand from the mouse while you are playing. On the one hand, we have a wheel with which we handle the volume, a button to mute the microphone, and a "Monitor" button, which will allow us to listen to the ambient sound without having to take off our headphones. It means that you can listen to what you have nearby, but this audio will not reach the ears of your teammates. On the other hand, we see that there is a button to control the equalizer, an input to connect the microphone, a Micro USB port and a 3.5 mm stereo input.
50 mm neodymium conductors
Of the sound in these Sound BlasterX H6 headphones, they take care of 50mm neodymium (FullSpectrum) drivers, which are prepared to offer a frequency response between 20Hz and 20KHz. These magnetic conductors are properly optimized to reproduce the necessary power and impact, to achieve a true immersion in the game, without losing the ability to perceive small details. For example, the footsteps of the enemy or the sound produced by weapons when they are reloaded.
Three equalization profiles
You can enjoy high-volume sound, with all the audio enhancements of Sound Blaster, including the Scout mode. This tool will allow you to listen to the players, before they can detect your presence. The manufacturer has also added three equalization profiles through a professional hardware, with different profiles for games, music and movies.
Sound quality of the Creative Sound BlasterX H6
In practice, these headphones offer high quality sound, with very good bass, and a minimal or almost non-existent distortion, even when we increase the volume to the maximum. As far as surround sound is concerned, the surround that is achieved virtually is quite credible, although it cannot be compared to the actual surround experience of a 7.1 system.
Customize and improve audio
There is no doubt that the company founded in Singapore in the early 80's has taken advantage of its 30 years of experience in audio processing. To get the most out of these helmets, it is essential to download and install the Sound Blaster Connect program, which will give you the possibility to make the relevant audio settings, as well as apply some improvements, such as Crystalizer, Surround and Bass, with which you will achieve a perfect sound.
