When Creative recently launched its full range of wireless gaming headsets from the Sound Blaster series, we were tempted to try out the Recon 3D Omega Wireless audio system, which was positioned to herald the beginning of a new era in gaming audio.
The Sound Blaster Recon3D Omega Wireless packs amazing audio processing power previously accessible only in internal PC audio card solutions, into a stylish and powerful wireless gaming audio system for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC or Mac. What makes the product different and special is that, it’s powered by the revolutionary sound Core3D quad-core audio processor and the hardware-accelerated THX TruStudio Pro technologies. The Sound Core3D Audio and Voice chipset permits for the first time ever the advantages of an internal sound card in an external USB device. The THX TruStudio Pro sound technologies, on the other hand, create unparalleled levels of audio practicality and includes stunning surround effects that go far beyond standard 5.1 or 7.1 audio, producing hundreds of virtual speakers around you.
The Sound Blaster Recon3D Omega Wireless lets you easily your Xbox 360, PS3 game audio by programming your Recon3D on PC or Mac. Further, the full spectrum 50mm audio drivers offer high powered, no holds barred 3D gaming audio experience with massive bass and detailed high.
Another aspect of the device we found impressive was the Hardware Dolby Digital Decoder that transforms any Dolby Digital 5.1 source into high fidelity immersive surround sound for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, or Mac. The audio enhancing features also perfectly complement the overall functionality of the device as it comes with stylish, rugged and extremely portable easy-to-access controls for THX TruStudio Pro On/Off, Scout Mode On/Off, Master volume control, Microphone boost (3 settings), Instant Mute, and platform selection.
Finally, the “crystalvoice”
voice enhancement and clarity technology has also added to the overall appeal of the Sound Blaster Recon3D Omega Wireless. It offers four separate hardware-accelerated technologies that ensure the best possible voice communication. These technologies contain CrystalVoice™
Noise Reduction - significantly reduces background noise; CrystalVoice™
Smart Volume - normalizes your voice to make sure your outbound voice isn't too overwhelming or too soft; CrystalVoice™
Acoustic Echo Cancellation - eliminates speaker audio from your voice transmissions while using speakers; and CrystalVoice™
FX - morphs your voice into different characters and accents.
All in all, if you are a hardcore gamer, the Sound Blaster Recon3D Omega Wireless will guarantee you a whole new gaming experience.
