Ergonomic Design for the Ultimate Comfort

The Sound BlasterX H5 is made for long gaming sessions. Featuring a premium blend of soft-touch plastics, memory foam and plush leatherette that complements its sturdy metallic architecture, the Sound BlasterX H5 boasts superior comfort and ergonomics to keep you focused on your game all day, even if you are a gamer who wears eyewear.

Through the clever use of physics and mechanical engineering, the highly flexible, single-piece reinforced steel band bends all the way around the head with optimal clamping force and ample flexibility for a snug fit—on heads of all shapes and sizes—for a comfortable fit without compromising stability and sturdiness.

Tilt Driver Design

Tilt Driver Design

The Sound BlasterX H5 is designed with a tilt driver implementation that creates a mini acoustic chamber to minimize resonance within the earcups. The result is that you experience extra clarity across the frequencies and better sound separation where every detail crisp and clear.


Dynamic Sound Signature

The Sound BlasterX H5 comes pre-tuned out of the box with a dynamic sound signature3. What this means is that we tuned this headset to not overemphasize on any particular frequency domain. The end result is a solid and natural sound for enhanced clarity and precision for gamers.

Hear Only Your Voice

REVIEWS

  • GadgetViper

    These (Sound BlasterX H5) are the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever owned. Even after an 8 hour gaming session while wearing glasses, they are still perfectly comfortable. I simply cannot fault them.

    One thing I really like about the headset is the headband; it's more robust than it looks, springing back into place after we bend it up so that the headband is nearly flat. Creative did this by using steel underneath the padding instead of plastic. While doing this with other headsets often makes me cringe, the Sound BlasterX H5 happily takes the bending in stride.

    The Sound BlasterX H5 isn't the loudest headset out there but it's plenty loud enough in our opinion, especially given how well it attenuates external sounds, and it also doesn't distort a maximum volume like so many cheaper models. Music is handled very well with bass notes that are nice and warm but not overpowering.

    If you're looking at a well-rounded gaming headset that's priced sensibly and will handle any game you throw at it with ease, the Sound BlasterX H5 is for you.

    Overall, the Creative Labs Sound BlasterX H5 pro gaming headset is exactly what you would hope to get out of an analog, pro gaming headset. They have great sound quality, great construction, and a reliable microphone that actually filters out some background noise.

    Creative’s new Sound BlasterX H5 stands as a perfect example of why a proper stereo headset can still compete with most modern 7.1 and 5.1 virtual surround sound models.

  • PC Gamer

    It sounds fantastic, nearly as good as my more expensive cans. It’s light and comfortable for multiple hours of wear. It’s durable, with a bendable steel frame. And it has a detachable mic that manages to cut out background noise and capture clear, quality voice.

  • Headphones Addict

    ...the rich details come very useful in FPS games where every footstep matters. The soundstage is also very good and can compare to audiophile headphones. As one of the best all-rounders, Creative Sound BlasterX H5 competes with Cloud II well and if you want to use your gaming headset for music as well, the H5 is the best pick.

  • High Ground Gaming

    The Creative Sound Blaster Brand is back and in a big way. Creative found the cost/performance sweetspot with the BlasterX H5. A worthy challenger to dethrone the HyperX Cloud II as the best $100-150 tier gaming headset.

  • DailyTekk

    ...these headphones deliver a velvety, maybe more balanced sound that doesn’t overemphasize the low end. And because of the tilted drivers you really do end up with more clarity which I think serious gamers will really like and come to rely.

  • PureOverclock

    The Sound BlasterX H5 is an excellent analog headset. It has the look and feel of quality in every aspect while managing to have a great sound as well. Every detail is accounted for from how long the cable is, to the quality of the case so you can easily pack it up and take it places. The only minor quibble I could come up with was a slight lack of crisp in certain high-pitched action sounds, but this is extremely minor indeed considering how great the music experience is. From just a quality and performance standpoint, this unit is a slam dunk.

    By all accounts, the Sound BlasterX H5 succeeds on all fronts quite well. It may not boast a wide range of complex (or unnecessary) features, but it provides top quality headset essentials in a comfortable, durable package.

    The Sound BlasterX H5 Headset is quite amazing. The complete over-the-ear design is extremely comfortable, I was able to wear them for 5 hours of gaming with zero complaints. The sound was so good I was opting to play with them on even when noise wasn’t an issue.

  • HardwareHeaven

    As far as music and moves goes. Again, the H5 impresses. The headset has a nice chunky sound when needed (for example the rock genre) but detail as required. Movie vocals are crystal clear (again benefiting from that low end clarity we noted) and there is plenty of power to explosions and the like. This continues into the gaming environment where the H5 excels.
