This year at Gamescom 2016 Sennheiser launched the first product in its all-new gaming range – the GSP 300 closed acoustic gaming headset. Designed for players wanting to level up their gaming experience with superior sound, the GSP 300 utilizes the audio specialist’s famed acoustic expertise to enhance every gaming session with even greater clarity and realism. It’s now possible to experience the game to the full, with enhanced bass that intensifies the action and ultra-comfortable memory foam ear pads that create a best-in-class acoustic seal to minimize background noise and ensure total focus.
The GSP 300 headset is compatible with PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One. Making this the first product in Sennheiser’s new gaming design range to offer gaming enthusiasts a way to step up to a superior class of audio.
“This headset represents a new design era and an increased commitment to our gaming range,” explains Andreas Jessen, Product Manager Gaming, Sennheiser Communications A/S. “Our product philosophy starts with a single-minded focus on supporting the gamer, blending rugged durable styling with the features and performance that gamers have come to expect from Sennheiser. The GSP 300 delivers a significant upgrade to your audio and lets you hear the game as it was intended.”
The GSP 300 features memory foam ear pads with a best-in-class acoustic seal. They are based on extensive research into the ergonomics of the human ear to provide the highest possible quality of sound and comfort for prolonged play, regardless if you play for just one hour or for an eight-hour marathon session. The aviation-inspired split headband reduces pressure for enhanced comfort, while a clever ball-joint hinge makes it easy to perfectly angle the speakers to suit your face shape. And for the ultimate team performance the GSP 300 is equipped with a broadcast quality noise-cancelling microphone that helps minimize background noise for clearer team communications.
Even the smallest details of the GSP 300’s design reflect a pure focus on an optimized gaming experience. Its ergonomics reflect the need for fast access to controls in the heat of the action: An intuitive volume control on right ear cup makes on-the-fly adjustments effortless, while the microphone can be muted in an instant by simply raising the boom arm. The microphone boom has even been made shorter to help cut out breathing sounds to further enhance the clarity of in-game communications. And even when the game gets tough, Sennheiser has ensured that the GSP 300 is up to the challenge, thanks to its high quality materials and extensive testing to guarantee lasting durability.
The GSP 300 is available from the end of September 2016 at the recommended retail price of $99.95 US ($129.99 CAN). As all Sennheiser products, the GSP 300 is built to last and comes with a two-year worldwide warranty.
