We need to help these people.

Our competition to give away five Creative Soundblaster Wireless 3D Gaming Headsets has drawn to a close — and now it’s time to announce the winners. As always it was a hard slog going through so many terrifying and frankly upsetting entries, but we’re very happy to inform you that the following five people will soon be replacing their truly awful audio setups with sweet cans courtesy of Creative.
Our first prize winner is Rodrie3 — with his winning combination of two foamless cans sticky-taped to a bendy plastic ruler, we were moved to tears by the thought that any man (or woman) should have to wear such a hideous contraption while gaming. Disgusting.
Rodrie3 walks away with Creative’s premier wireless headset, a Soundblaster Recon 3D Omega — with hardware-accelerated THX TruStudio Pro sound, a proprietary Scout Mode to let you hear enemies from further away, booming 50mm neodynium magnet drivers and cross-platform compatibility with your consoles as well, the Recon 3D Omega is a sweet piece of kit.
Our four runners-up will each receive the excellent Soundblaster Tactic 3D RAGE, a thoroughly excellent piece of kit which you can read our review of right here. The Tactic 3D Rage comes with 16 hours battery life, a 50mm neodynium magnet drivers for excellent sound, and an impressive range.
In no particular order: Burty13 impressed with his Macgyver-starring entry, a tragedy of blu-tac and masking tape.
We also enjoyed blahman3000‘s entry, a shining example of inspiration under the pressure of a LAN. A truly awful audio setup, and one we’ll be glad to correct.
games.on.net regular Wyld caught our eye with these headphones, snapped off on both sides and held back together with blu-tac. Awful. And leading a guild on raids with these, no less? Shameful! Something must be done.
Last but by no means least, mensly blew our minds with the hoops he leaps through to get his headphones working every day. Jerry-rigging a console headset to your PC through an Xbox controller and an adapter? No more!
Congratulations to all our winners! You’ll soon be listening in style, thanks to Creative. We’ll be contacting you by forum PM very soon to grab your details.
Thanks to everybody who entered and thanks again for Creative for the prizes! Please join me in congratulating our winners.
