Creative HS450 vs Creative Labs Fatal1ty

Hi guys,

Just a quick one for my dads birthday.

Creative HS450 vs Creative Labs Fatal1ty (headsets)

The Fatal1ty one is a bit more, just wanted to make sure I wasn't paying for just the name.

The specs seem the same, other than the wider headband and detachable mic. (from what I can see).

Thank you.

What are these going to be used for? I had the Fatal1ty set and didn't like it. Uncomfortable and the positional audio was absolutely terrible. I would recommend the Koss SB40

Have you considered Sennheiser PC131s or PC30s ? What are you going for? Music or chat?

Hey guys, sorry I forgot. My dad's just getting into LAN gaming with me. He doesn't type to fast so he has to have a mic too.

He's a bit of a newb but who am I to say good sound won't help him. Just we kinda agreed on a price, and the Creative ones fit the bill nicely.

That doesn't sound to good WC Annihilus, thank you, I'll have a look into that one.

Thanks llwyd, I'll have a look at them too.

He won't be using them for anything other than gaming with me.

buy a good quality stereo set and you wont be disappointed

Sennheiser HD-555 or Hd-595 are very good for the money

Dude I have some A900's, this is for my dad, not me.

He simply doesn't play or is good enough to understand the difference, besides I don't want to spend that much for a present, we've already talked and I explained to him about the quality difference.

O you have A900's? These may interest you then (only just now checked if they're in the UK):

http://www.limitedgoods.com/itemView.php?ProdID=250816

They were just recently discovered by a member from [H] and Head-Fi and are reported to be very similar to the A900's for a fraction of the cost:

What other headsets have you used? If you see our steelseries reviews you will see then when compared with other decent headphones, the 3H are the only ones we thought were worth their salt. The 4H and 5H are simply crap in comparison to everything else I and other reviewers here have used.

OP go check out the 3H review and see if you think theyre worth the extra fiver. I found them very good for bass but the treble was lacking and the mic wasnt up to much. Stereo envelopment was OK, certainly better than the 5H V2s

Ive not used those creative headphones but I have never been impressed by their lower spec headphones. You will be hard pushed to get better sound quality for the price than the sennheisers.
