My only gripe was the box was slightly dented in the delivery process which thankfully has not affected any components or game play at all.

Audiophile sound on a budget... in a headphone
Dan B onReviewed by
- Sound that delivers strong, punchy bass.
- Detailed sound and imaging with a respectable sound stage.
- Light and extremely comfortable.
- Excellent, clear mic (rivaling the BoomPro) that is detachable (plus the headset runs to a four pole 3.5 connection so you can use these on your phone).
- Detachable cable so you can use it as a regular set of headphones with any length of aux.
- Integrated USB sound card that is inline with the cable that provides muting, volume controls and simulated 7.1 sound (that doesn't just sound like a tacked on reverb effect).
- Excellent sound isolation.
- Understated and sleek design. No RGB nonsense. So you can wear these in public without looking like a tool.
- The bass can bleed into the mid-range robbing some sound detail.
- There's no side-tone. And because they isolate so well you do struggle to hear your own voice while while wearing these, so be sure you don't shout at your friends on Discord.
- While comfortable, the inner pads do sit against the ears. Some might find this off-putting.
In conclusion, gaming headsets have often been scoffed at by sound enthusiasts but Cooler Master did the right thing re-branding an already respected set of headphones. Eclipsing even my HyperX Clouds these are simply the best headphones out there.

Great Co-op deckbuilder!

This is a fully co-operative game experience that really does an excellent job in this genre of tabletop gaming.
I have played about 20 times so far at different player counts (except for solo) and the games scales well at all those player counts.
There is plenty of rayplayability in the base set. Like dominion, you use a random selection of cards (in this game 9) out of 27 possible cards in total. There are 4 nemesis to attack but since you play with different cards each time, each game experience will be different. Add to that, the fact that you play a characters that has a unique abilty which adds even more variety.
Another aspect that the designers have got right is that the game does not have player eliminitaion. A character does not die in this game so a player is not left out the game while the rest continue to the game end. A player who has been attacked to a point where his health is down to zero becomes "exhausted" and continues the game with some limited actions.
Note to experienced gamers: Tabletop boardgames are a big passtime for my gamegroup. We play lots of games and farely often so we are experienced gamers. Aeons end is a strategy game and if you have played strategy games often then you will be able to master this game quite quickly. It didnt take my group long to figure out how to beat each nemesis with our win ratio in the 20 games being 14 wins to 6 losses. Aeons end also has an increased difficulty mode (which we have not played at all yet) which is great for when you feel that you can easily beat the four Nemesis in the base set.
Experienced gamers might want to consider an expansion set with more Nemesis (most come with 2 more) early on. I bought the expansion Outer dark after owning the base set for just one month but we have not opened it up yet.
Final Thoughts: I have rates this a 5 star game. It is well designed, cleverly thought out, especially the AI design and mechanics of the Nemesis. Its mechanics also encourage learners to work together and strategise in order to win. I highly recommend to those who enjoy co-op games, deckbuilding and mild strategy. The game is not a "brain burn" so to speak but has strategy depth that mitigates getting easily bored especially for gamers who like a challenge.
You will NOT like this game if:
- you are competitive
- dont like co-op games
- don't like deck building
- don't prefer fantasy themed games

Prior to this I had a cheap Behringer UCA222 USB DAC which sounds fine but gave some artifact problems when the USB hubs got too busy (crackling and stretching) and before that had an external Asus Xonar U7 USB DAC, which was also good but only a slight improvement over on-board audio and was sold. I do have a sound engineering diploma (not that it means much) and have always been very critical of sound quality (but lacking the funds for expensive audiophile equipment) so I do consider myself to have a keen ear and able to spot sound quality differences better than your average Joe. This review was is based on a pair of cheap-but-classic Sennheisers (HD202) and Microlab FC530 2.1 speakers, compared to the external USB DAC's mentioned above and against the Realtek S1220A chip on an ASUS X-470 Prime Pro motherboard
1. Bass immediately had more 'life' and sounded fuller and more separated from the mids and highs, without being over-powering or muddying the mix. Mids are clear & detailed and highs silky-smooth with no harshness.
2. A noticeable improvement in loudness, clarity, instrument separation and a wider sound-stage, with an extremely low noise-floor, even at uncomfortably loud listening levels. I am literally hearing finer details that I have not heard before and it's not a placebo effect.
3. The Crystalizer DSP does a great job at making everything sound better. Crystalizer DSP's I used before felt gimmicky and seemed to just add more treble (and too much sibilance) however this significantly improves the audio and its one of the main reasons everything sound so great in combination with the Sabre amp. I use it at 50% and have all the other DSP's disabled, except for Surround which I use at 20% and only when using headphones.
4. Listening to music on the headphones before was fatiguing and got irritating, quickly. Now I can listen to and rediscover music for hours-on-end with no fatigue or irritation. The Xamp technology really brings out the very best in your headphones, I can only imagine how amazing higher-end headphones (such as HD600's) would sound.
5. I could not pick up on any electrical interference noises or artifacts, even with the headphone out on the front panel of the case. Previously there was distortion, crackling and popping noises when listening to certain tracks, now it's completely gone. This is mainly the reason why I wanted to try this card. For reference, I listen to music through MusicBee in WASAPI exclusive-mode, with a trusty DSP-plugin called Sound Solution that I have been using (and tweaking) for many many years.
6. Whilst the Direct HP mode sounds bloody terrific, the virtual 7.1 headphone setting is also really great for games and movies, I tested it in a few games and movies and the results were convincing without sounding artificial or weird.
7. The card itself looks great and fits in nicely with the rest of my system. Having a PCI slot occupied again with something shiny feels satisfactory (lol).
1. The software works fine now however it is basic and can certainly be improved. To switch between headphones and speakers requires you to go into the software, switching from the system tray would be a welcome addition. The UI just generally looks average, unintuitive and clunky. The RGB lighting options are also basic but functional.
2. The Scout Mode thing is so stupid and I don't know why Creative insists on marketing it as a killer 'feature'.
1. This is a great ANALOG sound card, meaning that your speakers and headphones need to have its signal sent through the Sabre amp on the card to get dat sweet sounds. Plugging in wireless headphones or using USB speakers that uses its own DAC will make this card pointless.
2. There is no Dolby or DTS support and this might be an issue for some if you need it.
3. The optical out is stereo only and bypasses the Sabre amp which again defeats the purpose of the card. It might be of use to some people, I don't know.
4. The RGB on the card itself would have been enough and not sure why Creative cannot offer a version without the RGB strip at a reduced price.
Overall, if you have a decent set of analog speakers and headphones then this card will serve you very well and is a definite step-up in sound quality if it matters to you. Its hard to find it in SA and Raru is the only place where I could find it at such a good price (R1,379), its also definitely a better option than the other internal sound cards out there (ASUS mostly) and A LOT less expensive then going the external DAC & dedicated Amp/Receiver route. If you're reading this then you are probably interested in this card and I hope this review helped if you are on the fence on whether its worth it or not. In my opinion, yes it was totally worth the asking price and I am glad I bought it.
