Creative Sound BlasterX H7 7.1
Choosing a gaming headset can be a huge challenge because there are many products on the market that may promise a lot but after using them, you realize the performance is not up to snuff.
In a creative and inspired move, the well-known audio card producer for computers introduced a high-performance headset to the market. The SoundBlaster H7 model, a part of the company’s lineup of audio solutions, is intended for PC gamers. This model combines comfort and durability with the best performance. The Blaster X comes with two ports for controlling your sound: an analog one for mobile devices and a USB one for PC.

Blue is a company recognized for the production of high-quality microphones, but in 2014 it began to introduce headsets to the market. Lola is the successor of the first model introduced on the market, the Mo-Fi. We probably expect this headset won’t live up to your expectations because it is the second product of this kind, but it is not true: Lola can actually compete with any top headset from the market.
