The Sennheiser GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Headset – Let me start with the good parts. The sound from the earpiece is bar, none of the best I have heard. Basically they sound exactly like my GSP 500, but they have leather on the earmuffs and they don’t have an open back. When you put them on, you are very, very isolated from any outside noise. Because of this, you can really focus on the sound from the headphones. I’m sure they are the same drivers on the GSP 670 and GSP 500, but this closed sound environment makes a big difference. Comfort is exactly the same, and I think Sennheiser’s solution for comfort is really good and I can wear your headphones for hours. The battery life is excellent and lasts long enough for every gaming session. The battery charges extremely fast.
Now for the bad parts: The microphone is a standard for gaming headsets, which means it sucks. After all this time, I can’t believe anyone knows how to make a headset microphone that doesn’t sound terrible. Also, you can’t change the sound quality of the microphone in Windows sound options, it hangs at 16000Hz and I have no idea why.
The dongle connection is the worst I have ever experienced. The headset now works with a 2.4 GHz dongle or Bluetooth. The bluetooth connection is incredibly solid and works very well. However, the Sennheiser software you use to customize your sound output and update the device firmware only works when you use the dongle. For this reason, you want to use the dongle all the time. Enjoy losing or breaking if you are a laptop user like me, playing from one place to another. However, the dongle itself is literally the worst connection I’ve ever seen on a wireless gaming headset. I can’t be too far from my laptop and I find it difficult to walk through objects. So don’t expect to run around with them too much and don’t cut them. Also, I can’t have the security device on the right side of my laptop because the signal from my wireless mouse (Logitech G903) was constantly causing interference in the form of static electricity in the headphones. It was not pleasant at all and definitely not acceptable. Fortunately, this problem was fixed by moving it to the left side of the laptop.
Finally, Sennheiser chose Micro USB as the charging port and it is the most rigid Micro USB I have ever dealt with. I don’t see this cable or connector for a long time …
In the end, the headset is really good and I won’t return it, but at the current price, it really should have a better microphone, better connection, and USB C charging. If the price were in the hundreds, you could have overlooked these issues because of the sound it’s just amazing but come on Sennheiser this is definitely not the best thing you can do. I can only recommend this if you are buying a new earphone or your first wireless earphone, but a side upgrade would probably not be worth it unless you are a proponent of excellent audio quality like me.
