Sennheiser has introduced the new slick GSP 670. This is Sennheiser’s first wireless gaming headset that will fill the wireless offering gap.
As an owner of the GSP 500, (they where my introduction to Sennheiser’s gaming products) I was NOT disappointed by the overall quality, comfort and highly recommend them to anyone! After many reviews and hours of deliberation, I took the plunge and picked up a pair of GSP 500’s. Everything Sennheiser is known for translates perfectly into what I wanted for my gaming setup.
From what I’ve seen and read the GSP 670 is no different, amazing comfort, premium audio performance and now with wireless connectivity. The GSP 670 is based on a low-latency connection developed by Sennheiser. Paired with the included GSA 70 compact USB dongle. With Sennheiser saying “users will experience a transmission with near-zero delay.”
This proprietary connectivity is compatible with PC and Sony PlayStation 4. Not to worry if your on other platforms, the GSP 670 features Bluetooth also to simultaneously pair it to compatible devices.
“The Sennheiser GSP 670 is the result of years of development and is not only our first wireless headset, but also the best wireless headset for gamers to date. It combines all the strengths for which Sennheiser is well-known all over the world: maximum wearing comfort, audio performance of the highest level, and clever features that you couldn’t do without,” says Andreas Jessen, Director of Product Management Gaming at Sennheiser Communications A/S.
Accompanying the 670 is Sennheiser Gaming Suite for Windows. A tool gives you access to various surround sound modes, an equalizer and microphone options. All allowing you to adjust the audio to your own preferences.
The GSP 670 also features a broadcast-quality noise-cancelling microphone, which actively minimizes background noise, great for blocking keyboard rage. That also can be muted by lifting the boom arm.
A stand out feature for me the GSP 670 can independently control chat audio and game audio via the integrated volume wheels to balance the levels between gameplay and voice communication. So good for avoiding in game menus!
