Gaming headphones are quickly becoming as necessary-a piece of gaming kit as the controller, and are getting as popular as standard headphones are. So it’s really no wonder that the brands are ramping them up to compete with them. Every year brings out better and better examples, with some of the innovations found on high-end headphones finding their way onto their gaming counterparts.
Take the latest in Sennheiser’s inspiring gaming headphones range…
The Sennheiser GSP 350 gaming headphones are closed back gaming headphones, released alongside the lower-end Sennheiser GSP 300. So far, they have promised to take gaming to a whole new level, in terms of immersion and sonic realism, and they might just be the headset to fulfil that promise. Not only do they incorporate several elements of Sennheiser’s high-end technologies for an all-encompassing sonic experience, but they also feature the coveted Dolby 7.1 surround sound too (when used with PC), for a cinematic level of realism.
Providing the “perfect fit” is the key to the design of these headphones. “Inspired by aviation”, the headband is highly adjustable and comfortable, and strives to reach the “barely noticeable” stage. They will fit, no matter what your head/face shape, thanks to a genius ball joint. This comfort is further enhanced by memory foam earpads providing a seal around your ear, closing off the world around you and opening up the world before you in a completely new way. It’s tough too, perfectly built to take on long, hard gaming sessions… but never adding to what makes the experience hard.
Perhaps the best thing about the Sennheiser GSP 350, is what makes it stand out from the crowd:
“The GSP 350 comes with a sleek and intuitive new Surround Dongle for PC to quickly toggle between stereo and Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound, while Sennheiser’s elegant, intuitive software interface tailors the experience to each gamer, their game, or their surroundings: Four equalizer settings providing optimized modes for gaming, an eSports mode, an ‘Off’ setting that allows for a neutral sound performance, and a music mode for a premium audio experience.” ~ Sennheiser
But wait, there’s more! Extra steps have been taken to ensure that the Sennheiser GSP 350 are compatible with every sort of platform, not just limited to PCs and consoles. The ability to swap out the cable for use with everything from Mac through to mobiles and tablets makes these headphones unusually and inspirationally versatile. Combine that with a sound and style that is wonderfully Sennhesier, and you really do have another level of gaming and headphone experience.
