Gaming is quickly becoming the favourite pass time of the majority, worldwide. We’ve been writing an awful lot about them lately because of this. And with such a trendy topic, it’s no wonder our favourite headphone designers are getting in on the action!
After all, for that all important immersive gaming experience, the sound needs to be just as immersive and realistic as the visuals, the mechanics and the gameplay.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: it’s entirely possible that it’s the sound that truly makes a video game come to life. Of course, it helps if you have the right equipment. And that’s where the every intuitive and inventive Sennheiser come in.
The Sennheiser PC 373D Gaming Headphones are currently Sennheiser’s flagship within their much celebrated gaming range, and were designed to follow on from the internationally bestselling PC 363D. The Sennheiser PC 373D take everything that was right about those, and build upon them. An adapted shell, an updated dongle and a new focus on customisation and Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound.
Design wise, it’s all about comfort, and sound. The breathable plush velvet earpads make hours and hours of uninterrupted game play comfortable and cool. They are lightweight, and rather cosy too. In fact, they’re so comfortable, reviewers have reported forgetting they were even wearing them – an added bonus for extra immersion.
These are dynamic and high-end open acoustic headphones, with noise cancellation built in. This means you will only hear what the game wants you to hear in exceptional 7.1 surround sound. Every footstep, every breath and every bullet shell casing, you will hear exactly what it is and where its coming from. This will certainly give you the extra edge in competitions (should you use them for that) and simply provide a better, more realistic experience overall.
It features an equaliser with four different settings, including competitive and immersive and even a neutral sound setting for music. And yes, the same gorgeous sound quality also applies when these are used with music too. In fact, the Sennheiser PC 373D are gaming headphones which really do attend to even the smallest of details:
“Thanks to its high-quality noise-cancelling microphone plus an optional noise reduction algorithm, the PC 373D guarantees clear team communication with no background noise. Three side tone settings, easily adjustable via the software interface, means that gamers can choose just how much they hear their own voice – there is no need to shout into your microphone ever again.” ~ Sennhesier
Comfortable and customisable crystal clear Dolby surround sound… and no need to shout? It’s no wonder they’re the flagship of a revered headphone brand.
