When choosing a gaming headset, we have to take into account a series of factors, starting, of course, with the use that we are going to give them. And it is not the same to buy a headset intended for professional use than one for gaming. Of the latter, the Creative Sound Blaster Blaze they proved to be helmets with great balance between price and performance and now update to version V2improving even more.
With so many models of gaming helmets on the market, it is really difficult to find interesting models that are worth your time. For example, the popular Kingston HyperX Cloud II have been a highly valued option for many, but they go to the €60-70. If we have a more limited budget, a few years ago the Creative Sound Blaster Blazewhich cost in your launch about 40 euros and they offered good audio quality, materials, and a fairly competent microphone.

We have before us the V2 update of the Sound Blaster Blaze which was launched back in 2016. This first version can currently be purchased for a price that starts from 25 euros, so it is a good investment if we want a balanced headset. However, the Creative Sound Blaster Blaze V2 It brings a series of features and improvements, promising not to raise the price much compared to the 40 euros that it cost at its initial launch. So we have a hull with 4 pole 3.5mm that comply with the CITA specification, which guarantees that they are compatible with most products on the market such as pc, Mac, Switch or the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 controllers.
These will also receive a new system of 7.1 virtual surround soundalong with a range of effects Acoustic Engine. Additionally, we can equalize these helmets thanks to the program Sound Blaster Studio Essential, which will only be available on Windows. Regarding its exterior design, we see that it is very similar to the original Blaze, with the exception that this time it comes with a gray color in the logo and not the red tones of the previous one. In addition, it has a padded headband with good thickness and we can also turn them to accommodate or store them more easily.

Regarding the sound quality, they will use a controller 40mm Full Spectrum, which will guarantee good levels of treble and bass, making it especially useful in games. Regarding the frequency of these headphones will be 20Hz to 20kHz, with an impedance of 32 ohms. Like the original version, it will include a detachable microphone with Noise Cancellation ambient. This will have will operate at a frequency between 100Hz and 15kHz and will have an impedance of -40dBV/Pa.
say so, that ethe material that the Sound Blaster Blaze V2 will use will be plastic, given the price range of the product. This will allow you to have a weight very light, because the helmets without including the wiring will weigh 187 grams. Finally, the cable included in them will be of a length of 2 meters, so it is sufficient for most users. Regarding the price, we do not know anything, but theoretically it will be close to the 40 euros that the original Blaze cost.
