Looking for a new headset for your games and not sure which to choose? Here’s what we think of gaming sound and what we put into developing and bringing you the best gaming headsets we can.
Clean, pure gaming audio
70 years of sound excellence condensed in the most advanced gaming headsets. Perhaps, there is no such thing as perfect sound, but every day we get a little closer to achieving what we believe it could be.
A gaming headset should put you in the game, not in front of it. The game audio should be represented as it was recorded, and not affected by extra bass or in any way altered. The producers behind the games spent hundreds of hours perfecting the audio. Why change it?
The sound games are made of
Games are recorded using Sennheiser recording equipment.
Game developers use Sennheiser recording equipment and Sennheiser headsets to develop game audio. Our headsets are engineered to bring you the same high level of detailed acoustical quality, the game developers intended you to hear. Just ask the people behind Guild Wars, Hitman, Far Cry, Assassin’s Creed and many other games. They all use Sennheiser.
Built to last
Your headset shouldn’t break after a year.
The headband should never go out of shape, and the audio should be as crisp as new even after years of use. We always ensure quality, and provide you with a two-year warranty, no matter which part of the world you are in, and which Sennheiser gaming headset you buy.
Made in Europe, by us
Sometimes to really make things work, you’ve got to do them yourself.
The key to a great gaming headset is the transducer, which reproduces the gaming sound. At Sennheiser we research, engineer, develop and produce our transducers in Germany and in Ireland. We are proud to say that we are the only major gaming headset company that manufactures its own transducers.
Open or closed design - choose wisely
Our gaming headsets generally fit in one of two categories; open and closed design. Headsets featuring open design are built with open sides, meaning air can get to your ears. You feel less warm wearing an open headset, and you can easily wear it in comfort for hours. Since they are open, you will be able to hear when people next to you are talking, and some of the audio from the speakers will be audible to those around you. Open headsets are great for when playing at home.
Headsets featuring closed design are often preferred by gamers who need perfect privacy. This is the case when playing at tournaments, where you do not want any other sounds to disturb you.
Chat to fellow players with crystal clarity no matter how you play
All our gaming headsets include technologies from our professional recording equipment. This includes noise cancelling technology, which ensures that the headset microphone is focused on picking up your voice and not the sounds around you. This means clearer team talk, and less background noise.
Feel the game, not the headset. Your headset should to feel as good as it sounds. Comfort is key in all our headsets. Some models take years to develop, because we want to ensure that each one feels as light and as unobtrusive as possible.
We test our headsets throughout many years and on hundreds of different head shapes to secure the optimal wearing comfort. All of our headsets are developed in light materials for optimal comfort.
