New Sound Blaster World Of Warcraft Wireless Headset @ BlizzCon 2009




New Sound Blaster World Of Warcraft Wireless Headset @ BlizzCon 2009
The suspense is over. The new teaser is actually showing the WoW logo and it is part of the Wireless Headset to be showcased @ BlizzCon gaming festival @ California, USA. It is also the first Creative product to include Creative's new THX TruStudio PC™ audio technology.

SINGAPORE - 18 August 2009 - Creative Technology Ltd. today announced it will unveil the new Creative Sound Blaster® World of Warcraft® Wireless Headset at Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon® gaming festival, taking place from 21-22 August 2009 at the Anaheim Convention Center in California, USA.

Creative drew from its legacy of gaming innovation and the themes and visual style of Blizzard Entertainment's award-winning massively multi-player online role-playing game to design the Creative Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset with state-of-the art audio technology and advanced features including uncompressed wireless technology. Creative will also be introducing a wired version of the headset with the same audio technology and design as the wireless version. From the customisable ear cup “Glyphs” featuring Horde and Alliance artwork illuminated by programmable colour LEDs, to the huge emphasis on comfort for extended wear, both headsets offer exceptional technology and design.

“Some of my first memories of PC gaming were with the original Warcraft®, which came in my multi-media PC kit from Creative. As the series has grown and expanded over the years, I've remained incredibly passionate about it, to the point of becoming a World of Warcraft Guild Master myself. So really, being able to work on this project is a dream come true for me. We've taken our vast experience to design the Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset to live up to exacting quality standards. The customisable design combined with Creative's legacy for making the best PC audio solutions means this is going to be an excellent headset for any gamer,” said Ryan Schlieper, Product Marketing for Gaming at Creative Labs, Inc.

The Creative Sound Blaster World of Warcraft Wireless Headset is both PC and Mac compatible and is the first Creative product to include Creative's new THX TruStudio PC™ audio technology. The result of years of collective experience and research by Creative and THX - THX TruStudio PC provides groundbreaking technologies that deliver the fullest audio experience for games, movies and music.

Those are some pretty sweet Headphones. The power of the HS 1200 wireless purity with their tech. I figure this would definately be a USB Headset.
Also, the led screens makes it perfect, maybe not only for WOW. I dunno exactly, but this could be a great pump up for Creative. Esp with the WOW fans. It worked for the SB for iTunes (not at all related to iTunes).. I guess their marketing is a good one here even by announcing officially at BlizzCon.

I wonder if they did some partnership with Blizzard. Lets see.

great news for wow fans too esp if they can get their clan's logo on the led screen

Sounds great! This World of warcraft wireless headset (catering specifically to Wow gamers out there) looks really cool! Soundblaster is probably thankful enough that Blizzard chose to trust them and be their partner.

also thanks to THX :)

Varuna Singh said...

Yes, I think the whole THX join up really increases their reputation and nod for other people.

Interestingly, I fear X-fi is going to die. there is no official X-Fi Feature in this Headset. ITs all replaced by THX TruStudio.. Which is bull! I mean its the same as X-Fi . I think THX is benifiting more technically but Creative virally and financially. I guess you have to make decisions and sacrifices.But true that it serves well for both the company.

really? maybe some re-branding, x-fi becomes THX TruStudio :(
