If you've been in the audio world for even a brief period there are a few names that will be familiar to you. One of which is Sennheiser, famed for their broad range of audio solutions and high quality listening experience.
Why are they on a website dedicated to the entertainment side of life with a heavy focus on PC gaming? They have released today's review, the GSP 670, which is their first wireless, gaming focussed headset. With an emphasis on near zero latency and multiple connection options allied to a quality noise-cancelling microphone and all wrapped up with Sennheiser's famed comfort and audio quality we wanted to find out what you could get at the premium end of the market.
After all, if most enthusiastic gamers are willing to spend a thousand pounds on a processor or graphics card, and many hundreds on a beautiful display, why scrimp on the quality of your listening experience? As anyone who has had to play a game muted will know, the audio can give us as much information as our eyes and good quality sound can be the difference between hearing your foe and smiting them or wondering what the heck hit you.
With our systems capable of handling everything from films to TV to music and, of course, gaming, the need for a quality headset is paramount and the Sennheiser GSP 670 can connect either wired, wirelessly with the supplied dongle, or via Bluetooth to keep you listening all day on all your devices. Let's take a look, and then a listen.
