Creative Labs has sent us another product to review specifically for gamers. Gamers are the target audience for Creative Labs products like the Sound BlasterX H7 headphones we reviewed in the past. We don’t usually see a product like this when it comes to audio for video games. The Sound BlasterX P5 is an in-ear gaming headset.
If you don’t like the weight of gaming headsets, these light, 12 gram earbuds might be what you are looking for instead. They are great for noise isolation. You won’t hear much of the outside world with these in your ears. The little tube things on the buds are not just for looks. These tubes are made to optimize bass.
These earpieces house 7mm Neodymium magnets to give you great clarity and high sensitivity 114dB audio. The in-line microphone is also well-built. It is a high clarity mic- allowing you to communicate in-game with ease. You can answer phone calls and play/pause your music with one button, and another toggle switch to mute the microphone.
In the Sound BlasterX P5 Box you get
- The unit itself
- Small, medium and large rubber ear tips
- A 3.5mm AUX female to dual 3.5mm AUX Male splitter
- Carry case
- Warranty information
Just like the headphones we reviewed, these work with the BlasterX Acoustic Engine Lite Software you can download for free. This optimizes the sound quality you can get out of your games on computers(specifically Microsoft).
For the reasonable price of $69.99, you can buy these high-quality earphones.
Thanks to Creative Labs for sending us this product to review for free in exchange for our fair and unbiased analysis.
