About this deal
I’ve been PCMag’s home entertainment expert for over 10 years, covering both TVs and everything you might want to connect to them. Meaning, the surround sound feature is implemented well enough to be completely usable in a wide variety of titles and genres, but don't expect miracles. controls for chat and game audio built directly into the headset, the GSP 670 delivers the ultimate in audio control. The bass drum hits in our bass test track, The Knife's "Silent Shout," come through with palpable force that doesn't quite reach head-rattling subwoofer levels, but still makes itself known in the lower frequencies. On the side of the right earpiece, a small control knob is used to adjust the chat volume, while a second control can be assigned to select equalization profiles or to enable/disable 7.
The soundstage was wide and every tiny detail was clearly perceptible without having to turn the volume up too high. The GSP 670 also does a good job on the PlayStation, the sound is very good despite the lack of fine-tuning by software and it is only in stereo. Sennheiser has put out some of the best audio hardware on the market for years, and while its gaming headsets have never lit the world on fire—they’ve always been solidly put together products. There’s some barely-noticeable de-emphasis in the highs, but nothing so significant that it will impact your listening experience in a bad way.I’ve been testing both open and closed designs in the past couple of months, and while it isn’t fair to test the Ananda-BT against the 670, I don’t have any other open-back options. The difference is that this is an all black unit while the GSP 600 I got has red and silver parts that make it stand out a bit more. Step into a new era of outdoor cooking with the Nedis Electric BBQ - 2000 W, where innovation meets flavor.
However, this cable-free model features a 16-hour battery life (or up to 20 when connected via Bluetooth) and very low latency.On the right headphone, there’s a button for toggling surround sound, as well as a small dial for adjusting chat volume, and a large dial on the side of the headphone. The pairing button is on the left ear piece and will also give the user the amount of battery life left once paired with a quick flick of the button. When you’re in a more stable range, the headset supports both a chat and game channel, and separate volume dials for the audio sources, so adjusting the balance is easy on the fly. Finally, dual connectivity is certainly another useful feature for many people: here the headset is connected via dongle but at the same time, it allows a connection with a Smartphone via Bluetooth. For the rest, the Sennheiser headphones perform well, not least thanks to their high-quality microphone.
The memory foam and leatherette contact point covers are top-of-the-line, conveying value from the second we pulled the headset out of its box. If you spend a lot of time connected to both the wireless dongle and a Bluetooth device, expect slightly worse. A refurbished product that operates ‘as good as new’, with aesthetic markings less than 30mm in length. The slightly de-emphasized highs mean the sounds of some strings and cymbals can be a little on the faint side, but I never ran into anything terribly noticeable.
Likewise, if you're getting sick of your Discord buddies hollering nonsense into your earholes while you're the only one left alive in your co-op game of choice, one twist of the chat volume sends them to oblivion. The Sennheiser GSP 670 offers a pretty solid gaming experience, though the connection issues I mentioned above still affected things.
