The Sennheiser GSP 600 is the company’s latest gaming headset, and it is a big, hefty one at that. But while its looks are somewhat frightening at first glance, Sennheiser has gone out of its way that you generate a piece of equipment feel comfy and nice. As I mentioned previously, this can be a headset on each side of the earpieces with metal finishes and red.
- Good sound
- Sturdy chassis
- Excellent engineering
- Competent mic
- Hard to get a good fit
- No worthwhile extra features
- High price
The look is enough to give this is for players
The look is enough to give this is for players vibe, but subtle enough to seem classy off. The boom microphone is set on a non arm it rotates out from the way and doing mutes the mic for those mid game slurps out of a beverage. Theres a click that was satisfying both ends of the motion also, signifying that the mic is muted or unmuted, but I did locate the mic sat a little closer to my head than it had to be. The boom is a bit flexible, but insufficient have it stay put and to move it.

The remaining portion of the GSP 600 is an affair, but with a quality feel. As it looksa and for gaming sessions that are longer, the headset isn’t nearly as heavy. The usual size alterations exist to move the earcups down and up, but the bow is where that the GSP 600 really makes its mark with regards to customizing the fit. Two sliders on that the top of that the headband provide a wider range of pressure sensitivity. Push that the sliders all that the way to that the top for a tighter hold, and all that the way aside for a wider stance.
Each slider controls the right and left sides independently, this there really can be a deep level of customization not found on many headsets. Thanks to this design I found that the GSP 600 to be extremely comfortablefor about a hour. After a hour or more, that the headband made that the top of my head sore and I was continuously readjusting the headset to get much more comfortable. Theres two rows of foam padding on that the inside of that the band, and I think this padding might have been wider to stop that the plastic bits in that the middle out of rubbing the top of my head. That is a shame, since the GSP 600 is otherwise probably that the most comfortable headsets Ive ever worn, in a nutshell bursts. The padding on that the ear cups is soft and does a great job of blocking outside noise.
