PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)
The receiver is roughly the same size as a USB flash drive, as this side by side comparison shows. A blue LED indicator will light up on the receiver when it's connected to the headset.
I was pleased to see that Creative included a pouch for travel and storage. It also has small compartments on the inside for storing the receiver, microphone, and charging cable.
PRODUCT INSTALLATION AND TESTING
The first order of business is to charge the headset by connecting it to a PC using the included USB cable. According to the quick start guide, the headset must be charged for at least 8 hours initially.
After the headset is charged, the next step is to download and install the drivers from Creative's website. Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2 or higher and Mac OS X 10.5 or higher are all supported.
After installing the drivers and pairing the headset with the receiver, it's ready for use. Let's take a look at how the settings can be tweaked using the software.
