The Good Wireless headphones using 2.4GHz RF. 50mm neodysium drivers. Excellent bass response. Warm overall tone.

The Bad Mid-tones can crunch a little. No surround for console owners.

The Bottom Line The Tactic3D headphones offer an affordable wireless solution that can handle all of your platforms. Sound quality is above average, but is definitely more suited to game playing than to music.

Creative knows a thing or two about sound cards, but does its audio expertise extend to headphones? Creative has done it tough over the last few years, as on-board audio took over from discrete sound solutions, crushing the company's main form of income. It has staged a comeback in the last year, with a range of new products. Chief among them is high-end gaming headphones.

The Tactic3D Omega headphones are the most versatile of the bunch, ready for your PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 gaming needs. Setting up for PC is the easiest; simply plug in the USB base, which contains the digital sound processor (DSP), and you're good to go. Once again, the inclusion of a DSP makes any existing sound cards in your PC redundant.
