Great headset for PC or console gaming
Posted by: CPB3 from: Monterey CA on
I use this headset to game on PC, PS4, Xbox One, WiiU and PS Vita. The sound is completely natural. Meaning that there are no added effects or sounds other than what the game is offering, so you get to hear the game exactly how the developer intended you to.
I also own b&w P7's which are superior to this product in every way except gaming, IMO Sennheiser really nailed what they set out to do with this headset. It all comes back to that natural sound these offer and the great mic.
You will need a separate adapter PCV 05, if you want to use the mic on Xbox live or PSN. It's $15 and converts the Y connector ( mic & audio) to a single plug so you can plug into the Dualshock4, xbox one controller, wiiu gamepad, or vita and use voice chat. You will also need the Xbox one chat adapter to plug into if using microsofts console.
This headset is a tank. Its light weight, but very solid (plastic) and even though it hasn't happened I know it could take a drop to a hard floor and not be damaged.
The mic is off when raised, you simply lower the mic to turn it on and chat away. There is a volume wheel on the right side of the headset. This is one of my favorite features just for the ease of use, you won't realize how much you will use this until you start using the product, at least I didn't. The volume on the wheel adjusts the sound and chat from 40-100%. You can't turn the sound off with the dial alone.
If I'm not going to be using voice chat I plug into my reciever using the supplied larger plug. I do notice a difference in sound. It sounds better than when using them plugged into a controller. It has more bass and can be turned up louder, but you can't use the mic. So the sound quality of this headset is somewhat determined by the source of the audio and the power it outputs. That being said, they still sound very good while plugged directly into the controllers I listed.
Almost forgot to mention how comfortable these are. The plush velvet ear pads are very soft and flexible. They feel great around your ears and pressing against your head for hours is a non issue. You forget your wearing them after awhile. These are open, so you can hear everything going on around you, they also leak sound, so others can hear them somewhat.
I'm probably forgetting something but this is a long read already. If you've made it this far thanks for reading and if you couldn't tell, I definitely recommend these for any gamer looking for a quality headset.

Pricey for a headset, but worth it!
Posted by: qu4lity from: Illinois on
Headsets tend to lack sound quality but this is as good as it gets for a headset. Far better than your turtle beaches, and other pure gaming brands. Mic works very well as well. If you are willing to pay for it, it's one of the best headsets available.

Best sound quality
Posted by: TheSmokingMan from: on
I tried many other headsets before I finally gave the Sennheiser G4me One a try (despite the stupid sounding name). Wow! What a refreshing experience. Most gaming headsets have a bias towards heavy, boomy bass which really ruins the sound, especially if you listen to music. This headset has a very natural and clean sound with a good balance of bass, mid, and highs. The microphone also provides excellent quality and noise cancellation. It makes an audible click when you mute it. It's fairly light and comfortable for a long gaming session, although I wouldn't say it was the most comfortable headset I've used.
The open ear design really makes the Sennheiser shine. It creates a more airy less closed in sound environment and Makes the song or game feel more expansive. Voice communication is fantastic. The voices of my teammates sound so much clearer through this headset. . Another benefit of the open ear design is that you can actually hear yourself talking in the microphone (which you can't in a closed design).
There are no gimmicks and no frills with this headset (other than its name). What you get is a headset worthy of an audiophile who also plays games. I have no doubt this will last me for a good long while.

They are lightweight, very comfortable for small to large ears, and the open design means that you can keep them on for a long time without discomfort. Noticeably missing are the lows, but in the end of the day these are gaming headphones, not music, and they get low enough that music isn't bad and explosions are still powerful, but if you're coming from a pair of bass heavy Turtle Beach headphones you'll notice it right away. They are lightweight but still have enough weight to be sturdy and durable enough, but I highly recommend getting a headset stand to protect your investment.
They come with the PC pink and green connections, as well as a shorter 3.5 cord for you xBox One or PS4. This headset IS stereo, but on both PC and xBox sounded like surround sound to me.

These are comfortable to wear for long periods of time in front of the computer. The sound is unbelievable, and the mic works great too.

Finally... The Headset I have been looking for.
Posted by: Jimbo from: on
During my search for a new headset, I tried about a half dozen different pairs, and this set was BY FAR the best.
- Tight, but comfortable fit (can wear for hours and hours straight)
- Detachable cable
- Comes with short 4 Pole 3.5mm cable (good for Xbox one/ PS4 Controllers mobile phone)
- Comes with long dual 3.5mm cable (good for PC)
- On ear volume control
- Auto Mute mic when boom is flipped up. This is great when used with a controller that doesn't have on board volume adjustments
- Incredible audio quality
- Open back design give a fantastic sound stage, and for a father like me, allows me to hear my baby monitor, even with the headset on.
- Decent Mic
- Detachable cable is proprietary
- Non Detachable Mic. Not a deal breaker, but a shame since the audio quality is so good, these could easily be used as standard headphones.
Other thoughts: While the Mic is good and is perfectly acceptable for its purpose, it is not as good as many online reviews you may find. Bass is a tad on the low side.
If this headset fits your budget, and you don't plan to dedicate this headset to listening bass heavy music, this is a very hard headset to beat.

Absolutely love this headset. Sound is amazing even on the straight 3.5mm connector. All the guys say my voice sounds crystal clear and it is very comfortable. Just remove the velcro off the cable and they are perfect.

Sound Quality, Comfort, and Style. A+
Posted by: JKB0076 from: on
There's tons of decisions when it comes to headphones. Open or closed backs, over the ear or earbud styles, brands, gaming vs studio, etc.
Having had purchasing a couple of gaming set brands over the last year I can say that I have been disappointed with the reliability and performance of these sets.
Months of using cheap($25) speakers I was really craving for the immersive sense of sound that headphone provide. So the research was on. Do I go the $70-$100 bells and whistle gadgetry gaming sets or that of company that know sounds. Well I went with a gaming brand again . Needless to say despite the glowing reviews once again bit sub-par set that was shorting out right out of the box. Back to the store.
So I start researching stuidio sets. Going back and forth between brands and open or closed backs and narrow the list down with Sennheiser G4me One leading the bunch. With the current price drop to $155 it was a no brainer. I'm no audiophile but the do not disappoint. Sound is crisp and clear(even using the onboard alc1150). Bass is subtle but perfect hitting so many tones. Comfort, I forget they are on and personally I think they are a classy looking headset. The flat black with the red trim adds just enough game to the set without making them super gaudy. Matter of fact if it wasn't for the mic these could easily be worn out. Saying that the mic doesn't even look that bad it's just rather large.
If you're looking for a high quality mic/set combo that puts its resources in sound and comfort, look no further. It's about the best it gets at this price range.

I am no audiophile but I got these as an upgrade from a Hyper X. Now, first thing is they dont have the boomy bass of many gaming headsets. What this set does have is extreme clarity! It still has bass and you can get more if you are good with EQ or settings on the sound card. I had to tweak with this set quite a bit at first but now that I have it right, it is amazing. The mic is also top of the line in my opinion. Very clear and huge upgrade over the HyperX mic. I'm not bashing the HyperX as that is a great set too, this is just better.

Excellent and comfortable sound

Primarily, I was looking for a comfortable set of headphones and these match the bill exactly!
