Sennheiser GSP 350 - More than just a gaming headset?
Proper sound mate
 
 Handset: Sennheiser GSP 350 
 Manufacturer: Sennheiser 
 Price: 129.99

If you're in the market for a decent set of headphones that don't cost you an arm and a leg, you can't really go wrong with Sennheiser.

Though prices do vary pretty drastically across their range of products, you can rest assured you'll not only find something to match your budget, but that it will be of solid quality.

It makes sense then, that the music-loving gamer might consider grabbing a Sennheiser headset to both chat with their friends and listen to music without compromise.

And Sennheiser claims to deliver just that with the GSP 350. Does the sound wizard succeed in its goal? Let's find out.

Look

The Sennheiser GSP 350 won't win awards for its design any time soon, but nor will you be embarrassed to whip it out and shove it on your head at a LAN party.



Sennheiser clearly focused on function over form. The materials - plastic outer, and memory foam interior - aim for maximum comfort.

There's no metal in sight either, which likely keeps cost down. And we can appreciate that. You'll use these primarily in the privacy of your room, so it's fine that the cans aren't overly showy.

Feel

It would matter if they weren't comfortable though. After all, you basically don't want to notice you're even wearing headphones during long playing sessions, so you're truly immersed.

And that's where the GSP 350s shine. They sit snugly on your head - and we mean any head. They're generously adjustable, and you'll find a setting that works for you.

The memory foam interior molds quickly to the shape of your head as well, to the point that you literally don't feel like you're wearing a headset.



The cushions on the cans also fully cover your ear, which helps keep external sound out. Meanwhile, the adjustable mic can either sit a comfortable distance from your mouth or placed vertically to stow it. Neither will disrupt your playing sessions.

Play

Where the GSP 350s fall surprisingly short though, is in the sound department - at least out of the box. They're far from bad, and you certainly won't have any trouble whatsoever with game audio, but you'll need another set of headphones if you take music seriously.

While I'm no audio expert, there's a distinct lack of bass. That would have been fine if the payoff was clarity across the range, but the sound was unmistakably tinny in quality.

Having said that, the GSP 350s do come with a USB 7.1 surround sound dongle, and you can download an app to fiddle with the settings. There's noise reduction, four different equalisers, and sidetone settings.

So if you're willing to put in the work, you might just get the sound quality right with them. It's just a shame that they don't match Sennheiser's usual sound quality out of the box.



Conclusion

The Sennheiser GSP 350 is a solid headset that aims to offer no compromise between a gaming headset and quality headphones while you're sat at your desk. All for a very affordable price.

And it achieves that for the most part. The design might not be the best, but it more than makes up for that in the comfort department. The memory foam interior is so effective that you won't feel like you're wearing a headset at all.

But it does fall slightly short in the sound department out of the box. You won't have any issues playing games or watching movies, but there's a tinny quality to the audio and a noticeable lack of bass when listening to music.

This can be mitigated by using the 7.1 surround sound dongle and downloading the app to tweak some settings, but you may not want the hassle and opt for another solution when listening to music.

Overall though, we can comfortably recommend the Sennheiser GSP 350s. You get an awful lot for your relatively small outlay, and the only real issue with them can be mitigated with some effort.
