Sennheiser GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Set
Boost your gaming audio experience with the tried-and-tested low-latency tech from Sennheiserby Tudor Rus, on
You can ask any respectable gamer out there, and you’ll get the same answer: gaming nowadays is not just about rocking the latest graphics card or game console that renders immaculate graphics. Sound plays a massive role too in the player’s immersion into the game world. Fortunately, Sennheiser knows this very well, and its response comes in the form of the GSP 670 Wireless gaming set. Here’s what it brings to the table.
What is the Sennheiser GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Set?
Well, it is called a set because, essentially, you’re looking at a combo between a pair of headphones and an attached, broadcast-grade microphone. This is also Sennheiser’s first peg at the wireless gaming set niche, coming shortly after the company kicked off sales for its first-ever soundbar, the AMBEO. Coming back to the topic at hand, Sennheiser says its GSP 670 gaming set was designed for "a stable, uninterrupted, near-zero-delay connection."
The set is PC- and PlayStation 4-compatible with the GSA 70 dongle, but there's no word on compatibility with the Xbox.
In addition, you can pair your GSP 670 simultaneously to devices such as smartphones or tablets. In case of an incoming call, you can pick it up, and the set will make the switch from your game to the phone and vice-versa once you end the call. Sennheiser is also offering the Gaming Suite for Windows, which is a control panel of sorts that lets you tweak various parameters such as sound modes and equalizer or select built-in presets that suit a particular game ambiance or soundtrack.
Sennheiser GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Set Design
Besides sporting a sleek look and crystal clear sound, a proper audio gaming set must also tick the comfort box. Sennheiser fitted its GPS 670 with an adjustable solid-metal hinge headband system that works together with the articulated speaker arms and the ergonomically-design earcups, which is pretty neat because there’s no such thing as just one game. And nobody wants their earlobes to bleed under too much headphone pressure.
Moving further, the microphone can minimize background noise but can also be muted by simply lifting its arm. What’s more, the headset lets you control both the chat audio and the in-game audio via two volume wheels.
As for battery life, we're told the set can stay on for up to 20 hours when connected via Bluetooth or up to 16 hours with the low-latency connection active.
Charging is done over USB and comes with a quick-charge feature that adds 2 hours of audio time for just 7 minutes of actual charging. And yes, you can wear and use the set while it charges.
You can pre-order the Sennheiser GSP 670 right now from the brand’s webshop for €349.95, but you won’t get it earlier than July 1st. Good news is Sennheiser is also throwing the GSA 50 headset hanger (€34.90) into the mix for those who do so, at no extra cost.
In case you don’t want to wait that much, other alternatives could be Sennheiser’s GSP 600 and Game Zero headsets available on Amazon. Check them out at the links below.
