Sennheiser G4ME ONE Over-Ear Gaming Headset Reviews

Best Gaming 'headset' available

Posted

Pros: Convenient, compleate, stylish

Cons: Smaller ear cups, slightly closed, hard clamp

So the Game One seemed like the answer to all my gaming needs, especially as an upgrade to my ageing Logitech G430/230. An integrated volume control and mutable mic go towards this being an amazing all round headset for gaming. The build quality is very nice and I love the styling of the headset (Black/Red). The sound is very clear, compared to other gaming headsets I have used including Razer Krakens, Razer BlackSharks, Sennheiser 350SE and Sennheiser 360. They are open-back cans which really help with positional audio in games like CSGO, driven by my SoundBlaster Z, but obviously do not isolate you from external distractions (Google closed vs open headphones). I tested the microphone...

Basically the HD 555's with a mic attached. Good all around performance for music and games.

Pros: Great gaming sound, Great mic. Rediculously comfortable, excelent build

Cons: Sort of veiled sound

I tired these for a while as a friend owns them. I have the Game Zeros and I actually like those a bit better than these. These game ones sound closest to my HD555's for gaming. They have a fairly flat and neutral sound with a decent little bass hump that makes explosions sound good in games. Being open back they inherently have a good sound stage and are pretty decent at placing enemies. They however sound a little bit veiled. Everything sounds pretty flat and nothing really pops out at you. All the details are there but you have to hunt for them a little bit. That does tend to make you turn them up a little more than other headsets. Could be a good thing or a bad thing. They have the...

Fit and Features Great, but lackluster sound

Posted

Pros: Comfortable, excellent mic, features, simple

Cons: price, lackluster sound

I had initially bought the G4ME ZERO hoping they would fit the bill for me. I loved many things about them, but I just couldn't do with them being closed headphones. I found a very good deal on the G4ME ONE, and knew I had to give them a swing.   Features: just like the zeros, these have an easy and effective volume dial, lift-to-mute microphone, and braided cable. Unfortunately Sennheiser decided not to use the hinge system they used on the zeros for compact transport, and general adjustability.   Microphone: The microphone is by far the best of any gaming headset I have heard. I have had multiple people ask me which usb mic I use when it is simply the headset mic. Once...

Sennheiser G4ME ONE Hit/Miss?

Posted

Pros: Lightweight, Flexible, Velour ear pads, Best Boom Mic on the Market.

Cons: 50 ohm impedance, Cramped & Fuzzy at first.

First off let me say this... This is my first review, I've decided to start somewhere between the upper echelon, and the top of the gaming headset realm. Sennheiser being my choice for gaming, I rounded up the numbers of very satisfied, loyalists to the brand. Come to find out, their needs differ entirely from mine, although I do enjoy a finely, tuned machine that serves form & function, over aesthetics. I purchased the G4ME ONE headset on a whim, knowing my Tritton 5.1's were on their last, very last leg. I got tired of constantly adjusting the bulky almost robotic medium fit headset to sit comfortably on my ears. The faux leather ear pads softened up over the 2.5 years I owned...
