“The Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset is the culmination of years of product development experience. For the first time, the premium Sound Blaster brand is going onto a headset, one which combines X-Fi, Silencer, EAX and VoiceFX audio technologies with USB connectivity for portable audio superiority. The result is one lean, mean weapon that all gamers should have as an integral part of their gaming arsenal,” said Low Long Chye, Senior Manager for Headsets at Creative Technology Ltd.

Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset
The Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset features digital USB connectivity, which ensures consistency in audio performance whether a desktop or laptop is used for gaming. Precision Full-Spectrum Neodymium drivers deliver unparalleled sonic accuracy, while renowned built-in Sound Blaster X-Fi technology with EAX (environmental audio extensions) support gives users unrivalled 3D positional surround sound so effective it is akin to being able to see in the dark. This combination of X-Fi and EAX, which generates audio landscapes in real-time, puts users right at the heart of the action with advanced reverberations and filtering.

The Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset also features Silencer technology, which uses advanced algorithms to actively eliminate ambient background noise, allowing users to give crystal-clear voice commands. Furthermore, the headset allows users to transform into their game character by disguising their voices with VoiceFX, which offers 18 selectable voice-morph personas that range from Aliens to Orc.

The Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset is designed for comfort as much as performance. Ergonomic, plush ear cups are shaped for sound isolation so users can keep their head in the game during extended sessions, and the headband is lightweight, padded and adjustable for a custom, precise fit. The headset also makes a great set of headphones when users simply detach the boom microphone.

Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MkII
The Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MkII is endorsed by world champion gamer Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel. This high-performance headset looks tough and sounds sweet. Jet black ear cups with mesh grill accents framed in red and an adjustable flexible boom microphone set it apart as pro-style gaming gear.

Because it is backed by Creative audio technology, the Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MkII sounds as killer as it looks. When paired with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card, the Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MkII unlocks Creative’s Silencer feature, blocking out annoying ambient noise. Full-Spectrum (20Hz ~ 20kHz) 40mm Neodymium drivers along with Oxygen-Free Copper (OFC) cable and gold-plated stereo mini plugs deliver crystal-clear sound in any game, from MMO to FPS.

The Creative Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset and Creative Fatal1ty Professional Series Gaming Headset MkII are available from the end of November at all authorised retailers in the Middle East at the following suggested retail prices:
• Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset: AED 359
