Creative's new SB Inferno gaming headset is versatile and affordable
Creative has announced the SB Inferno, a gaming headset for PC, Mac, mobile gaming, and PlayStation 4.
Sporting 40mm full spectrum Neodymium drivers, plush earpads, and a lightweight headband, the gaming-tuned headset (Creative went as far as to consult professional eSports teams like Team compLexity and Team Dignitas) also has an impressive 115dB/mW high sensitivity. To enable clear in-game communication, the SB Inferno is equipped with a removable microphone with an in-line volume control. Even better audio quality can be achieved if the headset is paired with a dedicated Sound Blaster internal sound card that supports Creative’s CrystalVoice technologies.
In addition to the detachable microphone, the SB Inferno also comes with a 4-pole analog jack so that users can connect it to mobile devices easily, as well as to the bundled splitter cable for use with regular PCs, Macs, USB/PCIe sound cards, or motherboard host audio.
