    It would be even better if Creative announced that they were going to release fully working drivers for devices they currently have.

    Don't even bother, insanely expensive, crappy made INMHO. The only selling point is the WoW included in the name.

    That has to be the GHEYEST use of WoW for marketing. Why would I pay that much when a logitech for 25 dollars can give me what i need. I dont even use the headphones, my sound is routed to desktop speakers; which just leaves the mic to use

    Might look cool, but i'd rather wipe my ass with them. I'm done with creative's crappy products and shitty support, had nothing but problem's from them.

    For the very off chance that you need a way to ensure you never get laid.

    It look pretty. Hope it doesn't sound like cr@p! I needed to upgrade my all too static Steelseries 5H. Also, I can live without the led, just make the sound quality clear and strong.

    LOL! That's the worst joke I've heard from Creative recently. With that kind of price, I can buy some real PROFESSIONAL headsets, that, except for the useless fancy lighting, provide 1000000x better sound than those CRAPS!!! Creative, a big FAIL this time!:banghead::banghead::banghead:

    That's a fancy way of saying "I use desktop speakers" :p
