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.

Quote from ProbablyChinese :
Thanks for the reply! I have not tried the TYGR 300R. Are they a definite step up? I was interested in these due to the price. The TYGR is $180.
I dont think they are a definite step up but the tygr 300r are very good, there is plenty of bass, imaging, soundstage, same build quality, very comfortable etc. I would say this is a decision on your first gaming headphone/headset. If you already have a $150-$200 set, then it will seem more of a sidegrade or if you just want a different sound signature but it wont be a significant step up. That will happen with something like a $500 DT 1990 pro, or a $600 Focal elex, etc, otherwise you are trading bass for mids or for microphone or for build quality ,and so on.

Quote from arkini :
hows it compare to logitech G935 ?
I have the 935 wireless and I feel like the p38x was a definite upgrade. The spacial sound is amazing and I can locate footsteps much easier. The bass in the closed back 935 is better but I would prefer the better sound quality and lighter headset over the better bass. Wired is hard to get use to after having wireless but that's honestly the only draw back and it's not that big of a deal. I had to go back to my 935's for a week while drop rma'd my first p38x and I felt like I had lost a substantial amount of sound quality. I now use my 935's as backup or if I need to keep hearing something while I run around the house. I also run an amp with it, a senhiser gsx 1200 pro. Helps a lot with easy transitions for different audio needs and on the fly volume adjustment. Hope this helps, I think the purchase is worth it at this price. Wish I would have waited, I bought them recently and paid more.

I'm in!

This should be a good upgrade over my HyperX Cloud Stinger set. I noticed the Stingers have 30ohm and the PC38X 28ohm. I presume an amp isn't necessary if I didn't already have one.

I also upgraded shipping for $5. No way I'm using FedEx Smartpost now that the USPS is readily and openly announcing mail delays and slower mail. Looks like ship date is 10/7 according to Drop.

Quote from squatchy :
Wonder how these compare to the older Sennheiser Game One I have. Guessing probably not worth upgrading?
Based on the RTINGS review comparison [rtings.com], the GAME ONE has better midrange and treble than the PC38X and only falls to its younger sibling in lower bass response. So if either (1) you are happy with the bass of the G1 or (2) if you can apply some equalization in whatever listening environment you have, then it seems like the PC38X is more of a lateral move than an upgrade.

Color me impressed, because i can get a good 8-10 hours out of my battery before the warning is issued, then they charge in a bout a half hour to an hour.

If someone could help me out. I got these qt the beginning of the pandemic and my son is complaining that the left side of the headset doesn't work. What's the return policy?
I think I paid about this for pc37x.
Thanks in advance
I think its 2 years for most Sennheiser's on Drop. Contact drop support on their website.

You can also buy extra warranty coverage on new headphones for future reference.

I was getting this too, the process is a bit specific. What finally worked for me was following the link on the front page to get $10 off, entering a new email address, following the email link to the drop front page, logging in to the new account, then adding the headphones to cart.

10off seems to be dead.

Anyone recommend a good DAC to use with these? I'm sure they sound great plugged right into the PC but will probably sound better connected to a DAC, right?

Depends on your motherboard. How much you looking to spend?

Get something cheap at first.

This hobby will burn a whole in your wallet and you might get a fugazi.

These are not hard to drive but onboard sound can get noisy depending on the board. I would get an inexpensive DAC/AMP combo. Something like a creative G5/6 or schiit fulla and stop there. Anything better you will likely not get the benefit of unless u plan on upgrading to higher end cans.
