Sennheiser introduces the GSP 600 – new gaming headphones

Audio specialist Sennheiser is introducing the new GSP 600 gaming headphones. Built on the success of its GAME ZERO gaming headset, the GSP 600 improves on its predecessor in several ways, claims the manufacturer, with even better audio performance, improved microphone performance, as well as increased comfort and durability.

No matter how long the gaming session and no matter how intense the action gets, the GSP 600 lets you keep cool and in control, reckons Sennheiser. It features a range of ergonomic enhancements including an all-new ear pad design, an innovative adjustable headband to customise contact pressure, new materials and an advanced hinge system for a better fit.

Featuring a new and improved speaker system designed and manufactured by Sennheiser, it also boasts improved aluminium voice coil speakers with an increased sub-bass range, ideal for games and movies.

Also on board is a broadcast quality microphone and high-end noise cancellation for clearer gaming communication. The mic can be quickly muted by lifting the boom arm, while a volume control wheel integrated into the ear cup offers convenience.

Featuring a new, more ergonomically shaped and ultra-deep memory foam pad design, the GSP 600 mirrors the contours of the ear for improved noise insulation and wearing comfort.

This new design shields the user more effectively from external noise and prevents sound from escaping between the ear pad and the face to preserve the intensity of bass frequencies.

The ear pads also help you keep your cool, claims Sennheiser, with a combination of materials for both style and comfort: While leatherette is used around the edges of the ear pad, a cooler feeling suede-like material is used around the ear that won’t stick to the skin – even in the heat of the action.

The GSP 600 comes with an innovative adjustable contact pressure feature to the headband for the perfect fit on different head sizes.

Says Andreas Jessen, Head of Product Management Gaming, Sennheiser Communications A/S.

“In the creation of the GSP 600, we took our very best closed gaming headset and made it even better. The GAME ZERO broke new ground by building a high quality audio headset that was created entirely around the needs of gamers.

“With its successor, the GSP 600, we have stayed true to this ethos with a headset that even more perfectly matches the needs of each individual gamer – with an exceptionally comfortable fit that can be tailored to each person, so they can truly become one with the game.”

The GSP 600 is multi-platform compatible for gaming with PC, Mac as well as consoles featuring a 3.5mm jack input. Use with lower-powered mobile devices is also improved thanks to reduced impedance acoustic system that makes it easier to game on the go.

The GSP 600 is available from the end of January 2018 at the recommended retail price of 249.00€, 249.95$ UK. As with all Sennheiser products, it comes with a two-year worldwide warranty.
