The Creative claims their new SFXI Gamer has the best microphone and surround sound of any gaming headset currently available. Those are some pretty bold statements considering all of the amazing options in the wired gaming headset category. With a price of about $130, there's other options like the PC37X, Logitech G PRO X and some others but this one actually has a USB-C connector making it a bit more unique. But is all of this worth your time and money? We review it in FPS games, MOBA games and more in order to see if the Creative SXFI gamer is really the best gaming headset of 2020 and how good its build quality is.

I ended up with ROG deltas (also USB-C) in the end, and speakers are JBL pebbles so my only debate is what to do with the pheobus sound card now since the Psyko audio headset was the last thing I was using it for.

My only complaint was I never got them working with my phone through the USB-C port. I wonder if these would actually work with my phone.

I did find the audio sounded nasally from your recording samples especially over the speakers I have in the office. It almost sounded to me like you were starting to come down with a cold. The 37x sounded way better, and the third one well soundedlike you were playing over a radio with a blown speaker.

Too many gimmicky things going on for me. Quality stereo sound over fake surround. Obviously everyone has their preferences.
