Creative Technology has just launched the new Sound Blaster Blaze V2. The Blaze was already a decent and surprisingly affordable gaming headset. However, the Creative Sound Blaster Blaze V2 looks to be even better! It comes with a solid range of features, but with support for PC, Mac, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch consoles, it works out to be excellent value as you only need the one headset for virtually all of your devices.
Sound Blaster Blaze V2
The Sound Blaster Blaze V2 looks smart enough with an all-black theme, complimented by plush premium velvet padding on the circumaural earcups and headband. This slim and light design means that the headset weighs just 187 grams, which is going to raise the level of comfort during those long gaming sessions.
The headset is equipped with a set of precision-tuned 40mm FullSpectrum Neodymium drivers. Creative say they’ll “deliver impactful bass and crisp audio designed to create an exhilarating experience.” and I don’t doubt them. Creative are my favourite audio brand, and the Sound Blaster name has been around for decades and has never steered my wrong in the past.
With the Creative app (on Windows), users get to access the Sound Blaster Studio Essential suite to enable sound processing technologies like virtualized 7.1 Surround Sound, Acoustic Engine (with features like Surround, Crystalizer, Smart Volume, Dialog Plus), built-in audio presets for various gaming profiles, movies and music, and CrystalVoice (with features like Acoustic Echo Cancellation, Smart Volume, Microphone Equalizer).
Furthermore, the Sound Blaster Blaze V2 is equipped with a detachable, noise-cancelling microphone. It features a gold-plated 3.5 mm 4-pole combo jack that makes connections easy, with its high-purity oxygen-free copper wire cable helping to transmit distortion-free audio. An inline remote control provides instant access to volume adjustment and mic mute.
