Test Setup

Running the Gauntlet

Here at HardwareZone, we have an established set of audio materials that we use to evaluate the merits of any audio product. However, due to the nature of the Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Omega Wireless Gaming Headphones (what a mouthful), we had to throw in a couple of extra tests. Our usual MP3 Tracks and movies were retained, but we also added in games like Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty on the PC and Battlefield 3 on the PlayStation 3 as challenges that this product would have to overcome.

Obviously, our overall testing process encompassed a wide variety of extra content as well. But for the sake of consistency and in order to provide a benchmark to compare the headphones with other audio products, we will be presenting our findings from our standard test materials.
