Good gaming headsets, in my experience, do a bit better with locational sound mixes (surround sound effects). They're usually designed with that in mind. They also will have a decent quality mic built in that is designed to easily swing away, often a mute button, and typically built in volume and mix controls (like increasing and decreasing voice chat volume VS game audio) that are often lacking on dedicated headphones.

That said, for the same amount of money you can usually get better sounding headphones, it just won't be all-in-one. I have a Sony MDR7506, and it sounds better than headsets I've heard that cost twice as much.



Question of my own for owners: anyone who own these who can comment on how much weight they put on top of the head? Every headset I try ends up giving me headaches... Either they're heavy and pull down on top of my head, or they're pressing into the sides enough to cause pressure headaches. Pretty frustrating.

This is worth getting a second pair. Excellent for gaming. The bass is perfect. Slightly compressed but not bad at all. Good for music as well. The mic is also good.

Quote from boot2skull :
Are these good music cans too? I need a new headset, my very basic headset for zoom meetings is showing some wear and tear. Thought about getting a more serious headset, for gaming at least, but buying some decent headphones too would be nice. This could be a 2-in-1 solution.
They are not as good as the HD58X or the HD6XX from Drop in terms of music but the addition of the microphone is important

If you read or watch reviews comparing the HD58X and the PC38X they will state that the HD58X is great for music but not so much for gaming, specifically footsteps.

The reviewers state that the PC38X is far superior for footstep/FPS/most games but does not hold a candle to even the HD58x let alone the HD6XX.

If a microphone is important to you (if you are using it for zoom meetings), then i would say grab the PC38X

If you are looking for a pair of headphones to enjoy music with, i would go with the HD58X or the HD6XX and just sticking to your current pair of headphones for work.

My gf works from home so I bought her a pair of these Logitech headphones for $85 on eBay - they retail for $125 but the noise cancelling mic is insanely good.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/18435899...Sw0ctfB6Tl

The headphones are ON EAR not AROUND EAR like these PC38X but the microphone is superior to most headsets out there. You can watch review of the Logitech headset i linked on youtube and hear the microphone quality.

I could listen to music and use the blender in the next room and no customers or coworkers mentioned they could hear anything to my gf.

You have to watch for sales but if you can grab the Logitech headset for work and the HD58x for music - you would pay a bit more.

Logitech headset for work at $89 + HD58X for between $115-120 when on sale is roughly $200.

Id highly encourage you to watch youtube reviews for these headphones before you make your decision - they are well informed reviews that go in depth about music vs gaming vs microphone quality.

Best of luck

Sennheisers *always* have a break-in period during which they'll give you pressure headaches if you wear them for more than 3-4 hours at a stretch. It took me 2-3 weeks to break them in with 8+ hours per day wear. If you can hold out, they'll be really comfortable, but it's not something that happens quickly. I made sure to get up for a stretch and some water whenever I'd notice the headache set in, and it would go away pretty quick.

Quote from Prologik :
Would this be an upgrade from a Phillips 9500 with a BoomPro?
I have both. These are more enjoyable for music and non-competitive gaming. The boom pro has a slightly better sounding mic, though, and the 9500's are better for FPS competitive gaming, etc where positioning is important. Also, I have a big head, so the Philips are more comfortable. The clamping force on Sennheiser headphones are pretty high. The earcups are much nicer on the Sennheisers though.

Been looking for a pair a gaming headset. Would this be better or worse then the wired steel series Arctic, or the rayzer black shark v2 ?
These are much better. These are leagues above both of those in regards to sound quality, better mic, and better build quality. There's a reason Sennheiser makes the most recommended headphones in the audio community.

Quote from squatchy :
Wonder how these compare to the older Sennheiser Game One I have. Guessing probably not worth upgrading?
I've had both. I wouldn't upgrade if I already had the Game One. It might be a slight upgrade, but not by much.

I think this is supposed to be equivalent to Phillips 9500, with a better mic, as PC37X didn't have good enough audio for FPS.

frankly i dont think there are any wireless headsets better performing in games than this one outside of something like the Mobius which is way more than 120 bux.

I have a pair of pc38x's and Hyper-X Wireless Cloud 2's which are pretty much on par.

That doesn't even make sense. Beyond meat doesnt taste better than beef, like wired isn't better than wireless.

LOL. ALL audiophile headphones are wired.

Sennheiser Orpheus is $55,000 and wired.

You think they forgot to make a bluetooth version or they couldn't afford it?

Go to any audiophile forum and tell them wired headphones suck. LOL. xD
