What customers say about "Key Specs"
Sennheiser GSP 600 Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Gaming Headset
  • The clarity and Noise cancellation are second to none on the mich!!
  • They block out outside noise astonishingly well, I've never known anything like them.
  • Perhaps most impressive of all is Sennheisers noise cancelling technology.
  • These ones help cancel outside noise and also prevent what your hearing being heard by others.
  • Sound isolation is excellent, it does not have active noise cancelling but the nature of closed back headphones.
Sennheiser GSP 500 Open Acoustic Gaming Headset
  • The headset were a little tight on my head but this was easy adjusted.
  • Nice noise cancellation because they're designed not to cancel noise, but they do it well.
  • They are not noise cancelling, so I am able to hear the doorbell or if I am called in the house.
  • They were little tight, but this was quickly sorted once I adjusted the tightness and wore them for a while.
  • I felt exceptional pressure at the bottom of my ears where it seemed the headset was trying to grab my head as tight as it could in a pincer style.

What customers say about "Features"
Sennheiser GSP 600 Over-Ear Noise Cancelling Gaming Headset
  • Cable is removable from the headset, this should expand its lifespan considerable.
  • Box comes with both a single connecting cable for consoles/mobile gaming and the classic headphones/microphone cable for your PC.
  • Volume adjuster on right ear cup. It's not loose but tight and feels solid.
  • Microphone is able to come up and down and when moved up out of the way your microphone has been switched off.
  • It does not have any virtual surround sound features.
Sennheiser GSP 500 Open Acoustic Gaming Headset
  • This headset works very well with Dolby Atmos and I have now amazing positioning in games.
  • The mic mutes when you raise it and makes a noticeable clicking sound, that' a nice feature.
  • Having the volume control on the headset rather than messing about with a inline controller works much better for me.
  • The cable is well made but a ropey material this offen twists and pisses me off.
  • Rough braided wrap that covers them means that any friction with clothing is immediately and loudly transferred through the headphones.
