Creative releases new headsets, soundcards

Creative India sent an update that they released Draco headsets HS-430/HS-850, Recon 3D (PCIe sound cards and 3D surround sound processor), Recon 3D Fatal1ty Champion and Professional version of PCIe sound cards and Tactic 3D Gaming headsets.

Yeah, I know colourful thread title *rolls eyes*. But this is pretty good. I haven’t seen much action from Creative sound cards ever since Asus Xonar series pretty much bagged the moment for a couple of years now. Then companies like Razer, Coolermaster storm, have been hitting the market with series of gaming headsets along with other manufacturers.

Truth be told Creative could have introduced something between Rs. 2,000- Rs. 3,000 on retail to go head-to-head with Asus Xonar DG/DX. Ignoring the flashy THX logo aside, I would very well like to see how these turn up, especially when BBQ’s audio contributor Brendon is currently with CM’s storm USB headset
