We have been reaping the benefits of Sound Blaster X-Fi audio for years and can’t imagine playing without it. Now with the addition of Silencer we have the most advanced audio arsenal in competitive gaming and because it’s USB it’s easy to take out on the road to tournaments.
Milpitas, CA (Vocus) October 21, 2009
Creative today announced the availability of the Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset, the first headset to feature both Creative’s Silencer™ noise-suppression technology and Sound Blaster X-Fi® audio technology. This is also the first gaming headset available with Creative’s world-famous Sound Blaster brand.
Silencer technology distinguishes background noise, like blaring music or barking dogs, from speech and then blocks out that noise so users are clearly heard by teammates. The Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset combines Silencer with Sound Blaster X-Fi audio technology, which delivers positional surround sound that’s so realistic it’s like being able to see in the dark. The software also includes VoiceFX™, which enables gamers to change the sound of their voice in any game they are playing to portray one of 18 different personas, from Alien to Orc.
“Playing at the pro level, bulletproof hardware is essential to staying at the top of our game,” said Jason Lake, founder and CEO of CompLexity, the premiere competitive gaming brand in North America. “We have been reaping the benefits of Sound Blaster X-Fi audio for years and can’t imagine playing without it. Now with the addition of Silencer we have the most advanced audio arsenal in competitive gaming and because it’s USB it’s easy to take out on the road to tournaments.”
The USB connection combined with Sound Blaster X-Fi technology guarantees crystal-clear audio from a desktop or a laptop and includes precision full-spectrum drivers for unparalleled sonic accuracy.
The Sound Blaster Arena Surround USB Gaming Headset also features a sleek white design and is crafted for comfort as much as performance. Ergonomic, plush ear cups are shaped for sound isolation so users can keep their head in the game during extended sessions, and the headband is lightweight, padded and adjustable for a custom, precise fit.
