Dual Sound Signature

Engineered as the world's first true competitive gaming headset, the H7 Tournament Edition features dual sound signature that give you control of the realism of your entertainment, even during tournaments without requiring on-site software installations.

Being tournament-ready, you can save your X-Plus sound preferences right into the headset, so it will reproduce your sound configuration without any need to install software when you're connected to different gaming setups.

Customer Reviews

O. Hinshaw

So as I was looking for a new gaming headset, my first choice was Creative by far. I had a used Creative headset - one of the older ones that used wireless connection with a usb stick - and it lasted 5 years before any issues came out of it after have already being used by someone for a few years before me. The long lasting quality was enough to sell me on the brand, and when I bought their premium headset, I was not disappointed. The surround sound rivals that of the top brand Turtle beaches, the sound cancelling is phenomenal, the fact that I can use it with my Xbox One makes it a great buy for more than just PC use. I use the headset for Gaming, mixing music, listening to music, and chatting on Discord. It plays ball in all the fields with no issue. By far this is the best headset I've ever owned. Feels super solid, I can wear it for 8 hours at a time with no discomfort around my ears, the sound quality is awesome, and I just cannot give enough praise to this headset or Creative's support staff.
