If you’re are looking for a set of headphones designed specifically for gaming, then you might be interested to know that Creative Technology has revealed its latest gaming headset, the Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage.
Unveiled at the German GamesCom expo, this gaming headset is expected to play nice with both PC and Mac computers. As far as its specs are concerned, both the wired and wireless versions share the same specs and this includes 50mm full-spectrum drivers with a frequency response between 20Hz to 20KHz.
The Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage gaming headsets introduce the SB Prism RGB LED illumination system, enabling gamers to choose from 16 million colors to light up the side of each ear cup to match their rig or gaming style.
Adjustable pulsation and intensity control for the SB Prism system also allows the headset to dynamically pulsate with the audio stream in real time when activated.
The Tactic3D software control panel for PC and Mac provides all of the SBX Pro Studio and SB Prism customization capabilities.
- SBX Surround – Goes beyond 7.1 surround sound creating unprecedented levels of audio realism including stunning surround effects that produce virtual speakers around, above and below you
- SBX Crystalizer – Hearing the clang of armor or the hum of a BFG, makes for a great game experience. SBX Crystalizer ensures that every audio detail is heard by restoring the “highs” and “lows” that are compromised with audio compression
- SBX Bass – SBX Bass technology dramatically improves the sound experience by expanding the low frequency tones
- SBX Dialog Plus – SBX Dialog Plus intelligently enhances voices in games and moves for dramatically clearer dialog
- SBX Smart Volume – Address the problem of abrupt volume level changes in games by intelligently applying gain and attenuation to deliver consistent volume levels
- VoiceFX – Enables alteration of voice with a variety of effects, which can be used to enhance the tone of a voice, create interesting accents, or enable someone to sound like a completely different person
