Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Alpha and Sigma Gaming Headsets

649189.jpg

Creative announced the new line of Tactic 3D gaming headsets featuring THX® TruStudio Pro technology for a completely immersive 3D audio experience. Available in September, the Sound Blaster® Tactic 3D Alpha and Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma gaming headsets are the first Sound Blaster headsets to feature customizable profiles, for a precise audio experience every time.

The THX TruStudio Pro audio technology, developed by the legendary sound engineers at Creative, in conjunction with THX, uses proprietary advanced algorithms that allow sounds to be recreated above, below and all around the gamer, surpassing the limitations of typical 5.1 and 7.1 headsets. It also allows gamers to hear voices and sounds in amazing detail regardless of how far away they are, making the Tactic3D line of headsets the optimal way to fully experience audio in the next generation of 3D gaming.

THX TruStudio Pro Surround Audio delivers a 360 degree surround sound gaming experience so gamers can hear sounds clearly from the front, back, above and below. “The difference between hearing sounds just to left of me versus to left and above me is huge when playing in a tournament match. THX TruStudio Pro Surround gives me the advantage I need versus using standard 5.1 and 7.1 headsets,” said Yfran “Eafra” Garcia, professional FIFA player.

THX TruStudio Pro features proprietary THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer real-time audio restoration technology, which enhances in-game sound by restoring low and high end frequency curves lost to compression. “With THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer we hear details that you just aren't able to hear otherwise, which gives us a definite competitive advantage,” said Alex “Sodah” Ringe, professional World of Warcraft player.

THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume addresses the problem of abrupt volume level changes in games by automatically and continuously measuring volume, and intelligently applying gain and attenuation to compensate for those changes. “In critical gaming matches there is a lot going on audio-wise. You have team leaders calling out instructions, gun fire and other audio cues happening all around you. Having THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume is important because it allows me to hear everything in the map, near or far,” said David “Xp3” Garrido, professional Counter-Strike player.

THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus enhances voices during in-game communication for clearer dialog, allowing the gamer to hear the dialog over the rest of the sounds and over ambient noise in the listening environment. “Whether you are listening to dialog or listening to your team strat caller, it's critical to be able to hear commands clearly and THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus allows voices to cut through in-game audio even in the most intense situations,” said Michael “Twix” Shane, professional World of Warcraft player.

Explosive THX TruStudio Pro Bass produces heart-pounding, customizable bass levels without compromising signal integrity. “It is always satisfying to get a frag with the rocket launcher. It is even more satisfying with THX TruStudio Pro Bass enabled,” said Brian “dkt” Flander, professional Quake Live player.

All of the features within the THX TruStudio Pro software suite are completely customizable and can be saved with the TacticProfile feature, so gamers don't have to modify their settings every time they play.
