Speakers

Here we see the speaker element, guarded by a thin mesh to keep assorted biomatter like earwax and sweat from gumming up the works.

Back

The back of the ear cups is set back behind a clear plastic window, which doesn't offer anything in terms of functionality, it does give the headset an interesting look.

Band

With a core of metal wrapped with thick plastic, the well-padded band is unlikely to break or dig into your scalp.

Cable

The Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma's 6.5 foot cable terminates in dual 3.5mm jacks, and hangs from the left ear cup of the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigmas themselves, and is fairly robust.

The dual 3.5mm jacks are delineated by color, green for the headphones, pink for the microphone. If you wish to give the USB dongle a whirl, you can connect both plugs to it and take advantage of the feature.

Plug Image

The cord guards of the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma are made of a rubbery material, and seem to be durable enough to withstand some abuse.

Additional Features

Plugged into the left ear cup is the microphone, which is not only able to be articulated to the user's preference, but it can also be removed should something break.

In the Box

Along with your headset, the packaging for the Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma includes a microphone, USB dongle, and some documentation.

Durability

Because the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma are big and beefy, it's no surprise that they are similarly durable. We wouldn't recommend chucking these off your head in the middle of a gaming session, but the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma is about as durable as you could hope for at this price range, and the thick plastic should protect the inner components well from abuse.

Aesthetics

Well, as you can plainly see, the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma isn't exactly the flashiest headset, despite what you might think by reading the name. It's not ugly per se, but it certainly isn't going to win any beauty pageants being this clunky and big.
