The Sennheiser GSP 350 is one of Sennheiser's several surround-sound PC gaming headsets, complete with 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound and a snug, comfortable fit. As far as smart headsets go, the GSP 350 is less dynamic than, say, the Epson Moverio holographic-projecting smart glasses, but as far as comfortable and stylish PC gaming headsets go the GSP 350 will offer tremendous bang for your buck.
While certainly a downgrade from, say, Sennheiser's sharp bluetooth headset or the cushy and pricey Royole Moon wireless headset, the wired GSP 350 fits snugly and comfortably enough to provide a decent degree of noise-cancellation while only slightly cramping the ear. The plastic build can be fragile compared to metal but is also lighter and finished off with a nice matte look. A volume dial outside the right ear, large but sturdy microphone arm, and basic EQ settings round out the ESP 350's special features, which are underwhelming but sufficient for the price tag. Add to that a pleasantly rich bass tone performance and you have yourself a solid choice for a mid-range PC gaming headset.
Dolby Surround Sound is a piece of jargon (not to mention branding) that you've doubtlessly heard before and, if you're anything like me, simply nodded and smiled, reassured that it was a sign of quality and would create the illusion of being surrounded by sounds. To which I would say that's sensible of you to presume, but did you know that 7.1, unlike 5.1 surround sound splits the "surround" and "rear" so-called chambers of sound into four sections, rather than the 5.1's two? Here's a link to a diagram explaining more for the audiophile's out there.
It is by far the most comfortable headset I have ever had. It works great, the software is fantastic.The sound is spot on of course.
They sound great but are not comfortable for me. The cups are too small for my ears and the headband pushes down into your head; I'm having to constantly readjust them.
Looks and feels like a cheaper headset than it is. Software isn't flexible enough for advanced users. It has a small sound stage and poor 7.1 reproduction.
The Sennheiser GSP 350 delivers in all three of those categories flawlessly. Not only is this headset very comfortable, but I was amazed at how light it is, as well.
It costs a bit more than most other virtual 7.1 headsets, it's quality makes the price worth it. Ear cups seal well and can get warm after 3-4 hours of straight use.
The sound gets extremely loud, but remains clear even at high volume levels. This allows you to really tune into the game creating a more engaging experience.
