Drop.com has the Massdrop X Sennheiser PC37X Gaming Headset $75 + Free Shipping w/ code SLICKDEALSPC37X

Description:
Based on Sennheiser's top-tier gaming headsets, our Sennheiser PC37X features the same exceptional audio and microphone quality, with some key tweaks to make it even better—and it's only available here on Drop. Made with drivers that are positioned at an angle, which is typically seen in much more expensive headsets, the PC37X maximizes natural sound reproduction. This results in more clarity in your games and tunes. Most games discussed on Drop are optimized for stereo headphones, so we invested in high-quality drivers instead of headset-based audio processing. Pair that with a blacked-out look and a noise-canceling microphone, and this headset will suit any competitive gamer.

I loved my PC37X. Sound is clear and beautiful, and the positioning is flawless. They're quiet, though, and may need an amplifier. Fully cranked, the volume was adequate. I'd heard from a few people I teamed with that the mic sounded high-end. The headset lasted about 4.5 years through normal (not particularly gentle) adult use with the failure point being the microphone arm's internal wiring. Towards the end of their life, the volume kept dropping, too; I don't remember if they started out that way, tbh.

I'm currently using the PC38X. Sound is also clear and beautiful, but it doesn't need an amp to get there. I like the sound positioning of the PC37Xs a lot better for gaming, though.

Both headsets are fantastic for listening to recording masters! I have absolutely noticed a big difference between album masters and originals, and am still a little pissed that I never got to hear all the extra harmonies and things until I got the 37X. If you think you'd benefit from that or the outstanding sound positioning, I'd totally recommend going for this deal.

Comfortwise, they're like other Sennheiser gaming headsets in that the earpads are very comfortable to wear, but the headband takes a little bit to break in. If you wear glasses, it may give you a little trouble after 2-3 hours of constant use during the break-in period; after that, it's smooth sailing.

Compared to other headphones, I'm pretty close to giving up on anything that isn't Sennheiser. I tried the Arctis 5 and Logitech wireless headsets and they triggered my sensory processing disorder because of how tinny and distorted they sounded, lol. Jabra Elite 75t wireless earbuds were the same story. Apple AirPods were okay, but nothing special. I tried the Sennheiser GSP 670 during its first model year (2019) and was super unimpressed. It was very heavy, bad for long sessions, and the sound/mic weren't anything special. Sennheiser's Momentum 2.0 Wireless is my daily driver when I'm not at my computer. They're also great in sound quality, but closed back, which can get uncomfortable with pressure changes.

+1 to OP because I'm picking up a new PC37X now Smilie

Nice price. I just picked up a set of PC38X for $120 or I probably would have taken a hard look at these cans.

I think PC38X is the newer version of PC37X

How are they compared to other headphones you've tried? I know they're great gaming headphones as that's been well documented but wondering how good they sound and perform as regular everyday headphones on PC for listening to music and watching TV or movies, particularly if they're comfortable enough for regular use several hours at a time (after getting rid of or at least used to the clamping pressure Sennheisers are infamous for), have enough bass, and other than the obvious sound leakage they all come with, if open back cans can cut it as your primary (if not only) headphones for PC use?
I've read and watched the majority of reviews but they're almost always coming from an audiophile or gaming only perspective, or for these people who don't hesitate to spend thousands of dollars for their obsessive headphone collection (not that there's anything wrong with it, but it'd be nice if they use their interpersonal skills to realize not everyone has or is willing to spend that much time and money on their incredibly expensive hobby).

I want and have been planning on getting your PC38X's once they drop a lil in price and especially now that it's in all black, but I'm not about to spend upwards of $100 JUST for occasional gaming. Otherwise, I'd just get these instead. TIA, it's much appreciated.

Mic on the PC38x picks up ALOT of noise and is not the best

And this was supposedly an improvement over the PC37x

Id watch some youtube comparison videos before snagging these

I honestly haven't had them that long enough to give and informed opinion. Before I got the PC38X I was using a pair of old plantronics but the plastic started to crack.

For watching tv I've been using a set of Philips SHP9500 headphones for the past 6 years. They are comfortable and cool to wear but they are loose on my small head. I recently picked up a set of Sennheiser HD 560 S as a replacement. They do have a bit of clamp force but you get used to it after a week or so. They are also warmer to wear compared to the SHP9500 but not as detailed. The PC38X feel lighter and more comfortable than the 560 S but the ear holes are smaller and touch the ears. I like the material on the pads that come installed compared to the 560 S. I thought the small ear holes would bother me but they do not so far. If it was going to listen to music I would pick the 560 S. The PC38X do seem a bit warmer to me at this point. I may swap the two tonight just to give the PC38X a fair listen. I also haven't tried the mic since I mostly game alone.

I wish I could help more. My next purchases may be a dac and amp. I spend a ton of time at night with headphones on so It's way past time to but some decent equipment.

Great headset, but you'd need a different cable. I'd look to the pc38x as it comes with both kinds of cables
