The names Creative and Sound Blaster have become synonymous over the years for their audio products and just hearing the name Sound Blaster garners about the same respect as the name Porsche! Which is where we get to the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth Headphones that will be featured in this review.
Creative has a rich history dating back to 1981 with the vision and inspiration to revolutionize the role multimedia interfaces with our PC’s and devices to enrich the users everyday lives. They originally took the industry by storm with their line of innovative sound cards and over the years it has continued to do so with its innovative line of products. In this review we will examine and evaluate the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset.
Packaging and Specifications
The packaging for the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset is Sound Blasters signature black and red packaging with plastic bubble that allows the user to view the headset through the packaging on the shelf or peg at their local store. As with the last Sound Blaster product I reviewed it shares the same proud statement about how over 400 million Blaster Products have been sold and this figure does not count the motherboards with SB audio built in!
On the rear of the packaging you find the same signature black and red back ground with white text describing the many features that the Jam has. Some of these features are the long battery life of 12 hours, built in controls, bass enhancement and the ability to use it wired in addition to the Bluetooth mode.
Included in the packaging you will find the Sound Blaster Jam Headset, their signature red USB cable, user manual and warranty booklet.
