Packaging of the H6 is extremely vivid as Creative kept no details from its consumers. From both sides of the packaging, you can get a clear understanding of what you are about to buy without opening the box. On the back of the box Creative lists all of the features of H6. This headset could be used with PC/MAC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. So if you have multiple consoles and PCs this headset comes very handy.
On the side of the packaging, I found a description of the drivers and the detachable microphone. The drivers in H6 are 50mm in diameter and made with Neodymium magnets. The frequency response range of the drivers is 20Hz-20kHz. Microphone in H6 is unidirectional with noise reduction and had a frequency response of 50Hz-15kHz. The headset comes with two connecting cables 3.5mm 4-pole and USB.
