Engineered to be Lightweight, yet Durable

Tilt Driver Design
The Sound BlasterX H5 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.

Dynamic Sound Signature
The Sound BlasterX H5 comes pre-tuned out of the box with a dynamic sound signature3. What this means is that we tuned this headset to not overemphasize on any particular frequency domain. The end result is a solid and natural sound for enhanced clarity and precision for gamers.
Hear Only Your Voice
The detachable noise-reduction microphone filters ambient sounds so you can be heard clearly, even in a noisy environment.
When you re not gaming, detach your microphone from the headset and you ll get a pair of compact headphones that s ready for great music on the go.

One thing I really like about the headset is the headband; it s more robust than it looks, springing back into place after we bend it up so that the headband is nearly flat. Creative did this by using steel underneath the padding instead of plastic. While doing this with other headsets often makes me cringe, the Sound BlasterX H5 happily takes the bending in stride.

The Sound BlasterX H5 isn t the loudest headset out there but it s plenty loud enough in our opinion, especially given how well it attenuates external sounds, and it also doesn t distort a maximum volume like so many cheaper models. Music is handled very well with bass notes that are nice and warm but not overpowering.
