Fresh off of revealing a new adaptive active noise cancelling headset, Sennheiser is back with another one for the gamers. Meet Sennheiser GSP 350. Providing ‘a best-in-class acoustic seal’, sporting memory foam ear-pads, ensuring ‘excellent passive noise attenuation of external sound’, the new GSP 350 also features a hinged and adjustable split headband, inspired by aviation headsets, reducing pressure for the enhanced comfort.
The headset features a volume control located on the right ear cup for the quick adjustments, while like other recently released headsets from Sennheiser, lifting the boom arm automatically mutes the mic. This built-in mic also automatically blocks out breathing sounds — something your teammates definitely appreciate. A dongle that plugs into the user’s PC allows for switching between standard stereo operation and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.
The GSP 350 gaming headset features memory foam ear pads that help form that aforementioned ‘acoustic’ seal, and keeping ambient noises out for an isolated gaming experience. Sennheiser says the ear pads were made based in the part on its own research into ergonomics, and that the headset will still be comfortable after long periods of gameplay. That comfort is taken further with the use of a split headband and a couple hinges.
The Sennheiser GSP 350 will sell for a retail price of $140 and it’ll be available beginning in November. A detachable cable is included for the use with a PC, while an optional cable for stereo use with Macs, consoles, and mobile devices is available separately.
