Creative Chat USB

On-ear Headset with Swivel-to-mute Noise-cancelling Mic and SmartComms Kit




Get ready in seconds with Creative Chat USB, a dedicated USB-C on-ear headset for calls. It works with various platforms ranging from PC, Mac, to gaming consoles, and is compatible with most of the popular conference apps like Zoom and Microsoft Teams.

From webinar presentations to conference calls, the headset delivers high-definition digital audio, as well as a noise-cancelling condenser microphone with the ability to effectively prioritize voice pickup over background noises. When you need to go hands-free during the call, SmartComms Kit's auto mute and two-way noise cancellation features double up as nifty tools while you navigate through your business pitch.

Focus on what matters and enjoy the added convenience for any online chat with Creative Chat USB's simple plug-and play interface, accessible swivel-to-mute microphone, and a built-in remote control.



Converse Clearly

The Creative Chat USB headset ensures clear quality and reliability with every call, made possible by a noise-cancelling boom microphone that has the ability to filter out unwanted ambient noise in loud environments. This allows you to focus better while capturing your voice effectively, so you can be heard clearly for an uninterrupted call experience.

Mute / Unmute With Ease

Don't get caught fumbling your way trying to mute or unmute yourself in a meeting. Simply pull the rotatable microphone down to unmute, and push it back up to its original position to mute. The swivel-to-mute function is easy to use and you will know exactly when you are muted. Alternatively, the Creative Chat USB also comes with a physical mic mute button on the inline remote to toggle between mic mute and unmute.

Hear Yourself Accurately

People have the tendency to speak louder than usual when they can't hear themselves; we know because we are guilty of it too. With the built-in mic-monitoring feature, press and hold to hear yourself clearly without the constant need to raise your voice. Speak as you would naturally and with confidence in any other calls with Creative Chat USB.

Communicate Smarter with SmartComms Kit

For Window 10 users, you can download the Creative app and access the all-new SmartComms Kit!

Simplify the way you communicate with the help of a suite of smart communication features specially designed for online calls. With features such as VoiceDetect, which automatically detects your voice and automatically unmutes the mic as you speak, and NoiseClean, a feature that aptly cancels out any unwanted static background noises* during online chats, enjoy more productive and less disruptive calls with just a few clicks of a button.

*The NoiseClean features work best for static background noises such as fans, air conditioning, air purifier, humidifiers, vacuum cleaners, hair dryers, electric shavers, and even lawn mowers.



Plug it in, download, and go. The Creative Chat USB lets you communicate smarter in 3 easy steps:

Plug in the Creative Chat USB to your Windows PC via the USB-C port.

If your computer only has USB-A port, don't worry, we have also included a USB-C to USB-A converter for your use.

For new users, start by creating an account with us.

For any existing users, you may sign in via any accounts you have with us, like your Creative store account, or other software accounts (e.g., Sound Blaster Command or Sound Blaster Connect).

Go to the SmartComms Kit module and make sure that it is switched on.

And voila, you're done!

To make further adjustments or control each feature individually, access the Advanced settings inside the SmartComms Kit module.

Guide to SmartComms Kit's Advanced Settings

Advanced settings allow you to access and control each feature according to your environment and preferences. For example, you'll be able to set how long it takes for your microphone to be automatically muted after you've stopped talking, or the level of background noise reduction you want on your outgoing audio (what others hear).


Auto Mic Mute / Unmute by Voice Detection

1. VoiceDetect Feature:
Turn VoiceDetect on / off by clicking on this switch. VoiceDetect requires your default microphone button to be unmuted in order for it to work. When unmuted, it will assume control over your microphone's outgoing audio to automatically unmute when you speak, and mute when you stop.
2. Set your speaking volume required to activate the VoiceDetect feature. When set to 'Soft', VoiceDetect gets triggered easily, even when you're speaking softly. When set to ‘Loud', you're required to speak louder in order to activate VoiceDetect's auto unmute.
3. Set the noise level that best describes your current environment noise when using this feature.
4. Select the type of microphone you're using. This allows for better accuracy in voice detection and pickup when you speak.
5. Set the amount of time it takes for your microphone to be automatically muted after you have stopped speaking.
6. Check this box if your voice and background noise level vary. This mode will automatically adjust according to the changes in your voice and background noise as it happens.
NoiseClean-out (Outgoing Noise)

Two-way Noise Cancellation — Your Background Noise to Others

7. NoiseClean-out Feature:
Turn this on to eliminate unwanted background noise from your environment during outgoing calls (what others will hear from you). When activated, NoiseClean-out reduces static noises generated by your environment, so that others can hear you better without the static disruption.
8. Set the level of noise that you wish to eliminate based on your current environment. For example, if someone is using a hair dryer directly behind you, we recommend setting this to ‘High'. If the noise source is from a distance and isn't loud, we recommend setting this to ‘Low'.
9. Check this box if your background noise level varies. This mode will automatically adjust itself according to the changes in your background noise level as it happens.
NoiseClean-in (Incoming Noise)

Two-way Noise Cancellation — Background Noise from Others

10. NoiseClean-in Feature:
Turn this on to eliminate unwanted background noise coming from your co-worker's end during incoming calls. When activated, NoiseClean-in cleans up your co-worker's voice and separates it from any background noise by filtering and allowing only their voice through into your headphones.
11. Set the level of noise that you wish to eliminate based on the current background noises that you hear from the call. For example, if the background noise in the call is loud, we recommend setting this to ‘High'. Likewise, if the background noise sounds soft and from a distance, we recommend setting this to ‘Low'.
12. Check this box if the incoming background noise level varies. This mode will automatically adjust itself according to the incoming background noise level from the call as it happens.
