      Great headset for PC or console gaming

      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.

      Sound Quality, Comfort, and Style. A+

      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.

      Best sound quality

      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.

      During my search for a new headset, I tried about a half dozen different pairs, and this set was BY FAR the best. Pros: - 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 Cons: - 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. Conclusion: 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.

      Filters out noise pretty well

      I work from home and bought this primarily to use for making iPhone calls from my phone. Because my daughters tend make a lot of noise in the background, I wanted a headset that can minimize the background noise so people on the other end of the line won't pick up that noise when I'm on the phone. On that front -- this works pretty well. I do feel like the earpiece/speaker is not as loud as I would like it to be so I tend to pump the volume as high as it will allow me to make sure I can hear the people on the other end of the line during phone calls. But if I use it to just watch shows (Netflix, Hulu, etc) from my iPhone, I have no issues with the sound. If you're using this on your mobile phone like I am, you'll need to purchase a separate adaptor so that the mic works for your phone calls. The adaptor that comes with this headset when used on your mobile phone will work only for the earpiece but not for the microphone.

      Perfect Headset!

      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.

      Great Comfortable Headset

      This is my second pair, first pair the braided cord was kinked at purchase to it eventually ripped the wires, returned via best buy warranty and purchased another one. Great quality, good mic, definitely get the open air one (this model versus the game zero). I used to always use the closed ones for the bass but the open air is so much more comfortable, no sweating. Sound quality is significantly more lifelike due to the open stage, first time i put them on i was literally looking around and out the window for where the sound was coming from before i realized it was from the headphones. I wear these headphones 16 hours a day with no issues.

      Nice, but very hot and not very open after all.

      The velvet cups made my ears sweat almost immediately. The sound quality was good, but not really any better than the various $100 headsets out there. And the fact that they're open didn't really help all that much. You can hear yourself speaking to a degree, but once there's audio coming through, I found myself shouting to hear myself. They're pretty barebones otherwise. There's no mute button or any kind of inline controls, the microphone isn't removable or even adjustable beyond swiveling up and down. They also fit a bit tight, which doesn't help when they're already very hot. There are better choices out there for sure, especially for the price.
