Sennheiser Announce the GSP 370, A 100-Hour Wireless Gaming Headset
We all know Sennheiser as a quality brand, one for audiophiles who aren't concerned about spending the money needed to get what they want. This was certainly the case with the companies first wireless gaming headset, the GSP 670 (you can read our review here).
It now looks like the company are looking at a more budget option, though not one that will cut corners and skimp on the quality people know and expect from the company. This brings us to the newly announced GSP 370, a more budget-friendly wireless headset with an announced wireless battery life of a whopping 100 hours.
Battery life of up to 100 hours
Thanks to a low power consumption and a long-lasting integrated battery, the GSP 370 has an exceptional battery life of up to 100 hours: gamers who play six hours a week on average can game for four months with this wireless headset before having to recharge. The GSP 370 is charged over micro-USB (cable included in the box) and can be used while charging.
Based on the GSP 300 series, the headset will feature all the features you expect from a high-end and wireless headset. With low-latency connection features in the 670, it's a perfect headset for gaming and communicating online, there being no lag at all. With it also being able to link into the gaming suite application on the PC, the adjustments you can make to the audio output should please any audiophile.
The other thing you can reasonably expect is a high-quality build and a device that will stand the test of time. Having looked at the images of the headset, it looks very similar to that of the 670. You can expect a level of comfort that doesn't diminish, no matter how long you use it in a sitting.
Sennheiser Gaming Suite allows individual sound adjustments on the PC
The GSP 370 over-ear headset is based on the same closed acousticdesign as the award-winning GSP 300. Integrated digital sound processing enhances the audio experience giving users exceptional bass performance and acoustic clarity. For a more personalized sound experience, the Sennheiser Gaming Suite for Windows® offers various surround sound modes, an equalizer, microphone options, and ready-to-use presets for typical genres and occasions, allowing you to adjust the audio to your own preferences.
Like all other Sennheiser Gaming headsets, the GSP 370 features a broadcast quality noise-cancelling microphone, which actively minimizes background noise and can be muted by simply lifting the boom arm. The game audio is synchronized with the Windows® volume control and can be adjusted intuitively via an integrated volume wheel on the ear cup.
Strong focus on wearing comfort
Sennheiser has designed the GSP 370 with a strong focus on wearing comfort. The split, padded headband reduces pressure on the skull while memory foam ear cushions provide a comfortable fit and isolate ambient noise. A clever ball-joint hinge automatically angles the ear cups to suit the shape of your face, while the ear cups themselves are shaped and angled to perfectly fit around the human ear. This makes the headset comfortable to use even during extended gaming sessions.
"With the GSP 370, we are adding another wireless gaming headset to our portfolio that not only features our highly praised low-latency connection, but also provides an impressive battery life. All this is rounded off with the typical Sennheiser virtues: high wearing comfort, premium craftsmanship and an exceptional audio experience", says Andreas Jessen, Director of Product Management Gaming at Sennheiser Communications A/S.
Coming in at just £169/€199/$199, this is certainly more affordable than the usual Sennheiser range of headsets. With support for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, this could certainly be the headset of choice for anybody willing to spend that little extra cash.
Price and availability
The Sennheiser GSP 370 is now available in Sennheiser's web shop at a recommended retail price of €199. If you purchase the gaming headset from the Sennheiser website, you will also receive the GSA 50 headset hanger (value: €34,90) free of charge.
