    I’ve owned a few headsets in the past 10 years, including Logitech, Altec Lansing, Sony (without a microphone) and a lower model Sennheiser about 5 years ago. I am an avid computer gamer and often go late into the night at stretches of 8 hours at a time or more. And this is the best headset I’ve ever used in almost everyway.

    First impressions on removing it from the packaging (which I had no trouble with, following the directions on the box) were of durability and a solid build. It’s well put together, nothing seems flimsy or cheap, but its also surprisingly lightweight. The wire is quite heavy duty, unlike the Altec Lansing and Logitech headsets I previously owned. Not to mention robust strain relief where the wire connects to the headset, the control pod, and the jacks.

    The control pod is perfectly positioned and lightweight, so even if it’s dangling you don’t even feel it, unlike the bulky control pods on some other headsets. In terms of fit, the ears swivel almost 45 degrees in each direction, and extend from the head-bar with solid clicking intervals. The headbar and ears are both covered in comfortable velor padding which unlike faux-leather on my previous altec lansings, don’t cause your skin to sweat and stick to it. The earpieces swivel slightly in and out, and if you push firmly on them they will collapse inward with a snap – don’t be afraid, it just prevents them from collapsing on accident, which I was concerned about when I saw them folded inward in the pictures.

    They collapse solidly but will not do so by themselves. The microphone is adjustable, but not overly so – you have to bend it firmly to adjust the position and it won’t bounce back on its own. It descends down from its perch vertically along the headset with a moderate degree of resistance, so it won’t flop up or down on its own. And if you want to move it halfway up and leave it there, it won’t flop back down, unlike my old headset, which either had to be all the way up or down. Hopefully it stays this way.

    In terms of comfort, its extraordinary. Many headsets I’ve owned claimed to be circumaural, meaning they surround you ears and don’t sit on them or in them. But most either never intended to actually follow through on that promise or they are made for people with ears the size of quarters. Even my old Sennheisers sat right on my ears, and my Altec Lansings, while a very nice headset, had padding large enough to go around my ears, but the speakers inside the earphones themselves pressed up against my ears, which became extremely uncomfortable after periods of time.

    These earphones are ACTUALLY circumaural. The padding surrounds your ears but never touches them. The only pressure is on your actual head; your ears are never in contact with anything. The velor is soft and the pressure is almost unnoticeable. At first they seemed a bit tight but a little adjustment of the head-bar and a couple hours and they seem to break in a bit. the velor padding on the head-bar rests gently on the top of your head and the whole thing seems to distribute the weight of the headset evenly so you barely feel it.

    Now for sound – Everyone knows Sennheiser is one of the premier names in sound quality, and these are no disappointment. Now these are probably not the headset you want if you’re just listening to music in a studio or something – but for a combination of a microphone and comfort and audio quality, I doubt there’s any better at this price. I began by watching a DVD of Band of Brothers on my computer. At first I thought something was wrong! It sounded like there was some kind of noise coming from somewhere else besides the DVD, when I realized I was hearing things I’ve never even before heard on my speaker system!

    Every sound, especially the mid’s and high’s are exceptionally clear and sharp. And for a headset that is not a 5.1 headset, the directionality of the sound is amazing. Some here have complained that the base is not heavy enough, but honestly, if you want to have more base than this, you’re not looking for audio quality and accuracy, you’re just looking for ridiculous base. The base was excellent and sharp, not booming or echoing. Explosions sounded realistic and surprising, without any buzzing or crackling. For sound quality, these are better than my Klipsch Promedia speaker system, and that’s saying something.

    These also have a closed headset design, and I was initially worried about the sweaty-ear syndrome from this type of headset, but I was suprised and happy to find that after 4 hours, I didn’t experience any overheating or sweating of my ears. Maybe in the summertime that would change, but if anything the headset just got more comfortable over that time.

    The microphone quality, while it is hard for me to tell myself, I’ve been told it’s excellent, although I had to turn my gain…

    Got this set in today and I must say for a $250 dollar headset it comes with very little extras(no 1/4 adapter etcc..)All you get is the headset.
    Pros:
    -The sound is amazing. This is the first headset that after playing with the EQ settings you can actually get these bad boys to vibrate pretty hard from the bass with no distortion. In fact I can turn everything all the way up and get no distortion.
    -The mic is great no reverb and the inline mute works well
    -Closed design really does eliminate outside noise for the most part.I would say about 80 percent or so.
    -Build quality is amazing
    -very comfortable
    -And I must say this headset is pretty

    Cons:
    -The inline volume is almost useless. If you turn it all the way down it doesnt go mute or even close to it I would say all the way down on the little wheel thing is 50 percent volume and of course all the way up on the wheel is 100 percent.I am not sure if mine is defective or maybee thats the way high end phones are.I use the PC volume anyway so it doesnt bother me too much.

    Overall I love them and if it werent for the volume wheel I would have gave it 5 stars.

    I’ve been using a pair of Sennheiser PC 151s for a couple of years now and I’ve always been pleased with their performance. After listening to a friend rave about his recent acquisition of Razer’s newest stereo headset offering, I figured I’d try upgrading to something a little more high-end. And hey – who doesn’t want to look like an air traffic controller or a football coach?

    As everyone else has raved, the packaging is top-notch. Incredibly easy to open while also conveying that this is a premium product that needs to be shipped safely. But not to worry – these cans are built like a tank. They have considerable heft to them while the plastic feels very solid, even if the metal hinges are mostly for show. I have a big head and these headphones fit shockingly well – snug, but not tight. The large ear cups surrounded my ears completely and the foam isolated me from the room so much that I didn’t hear my phone ringing while it was sitting just a few feet away from me. I also really liked the solid feel to the cord, the thin nature of the cord on my PC 151s is a constant annoyance to me, I’m always afraid that I’m going to snag or snap it.

    All in all, these are well designed headphones. Sadly I’ll be returning them anyway.

    Why you might ask? I can’t use them without spending at least another $100 and possibly modifying them to void the warranty.

    If you look at the technical specifications of any of the other Sennheiser headsets or even any of the headsets from Logitech or Razer, you’ll see that their nominal impedance is rated at 32 ohms. This headset? 150 ohms. It’s a much harder load for the weak onboard soundcard’s amp to drive. Highs and upper mids sound well defined and rich, but mid and low bass material is weak and ill-defined if it exists at all. I found myself wanting to turn the music louder and louder to try and compensate for missing frequencies on material that was familiar to me – and that’s a great way to acquire some hearing damage.

    I went ahead and borrowed a small Yamaha mixer from my office to test and ensure that the load on the soundcard’s amp was my issue. With the headphones powered by the more significant headphone amplifier on the mixer these headphones sounded absolutely wonderful. With some extremely minor (~10% above flat) boost to the mid and low frequencies these headphones sounded really quite good. I enjoyed the tightness given to the bass definition by virtue of the sealed enclosure. Some people have instead chosen to modify their PC 350s by drilling ports into the enclosure to enhance the low-end response and follow that up by packing the rear cavity with fiberfill as well. (Search head-fi.og for “modding the pc350” if you’re curious for the details.)

    So, I’d have to buy a headphone amplifier to really make reasonable use of these headphones. For anything of reasonable quality we’re looking at ~$100, minimum.

    The final straw that lead me to decide to return these headphones was actually the reason I’d bought them to begin with – they isolated too well, really. When I finally tried to speak to a friend on ventrilo while wearing them the result was…. odd. I couldn’t hear my voice in the room, just the sound echoed back from within my own head – almost as if I’d had a bad headcold or a horrible ear infection. If there was any noise in the headphones I found myself shouting to compensate for it, which was just obnoxious.

    So, between the expense of the headset itself, the added expense for a headphone amplifier and the additional possible need to modify the design, I decided it just wasn’t worth it. My old PC 151s still work as well as the day that I purchased them, and they’re already paid for and can be powered perfectly by my soundcard. I’ll just continue using those, I suppose.

  • […] The cons of the headset is that it could leak dye from the cloth leaving a stain on your skin. When the headset isn’t powered, you can hear a hiss. The cloth lining did not stay attached to the gaming headset. […]
