Sennheiser has been my brand of headphones for over a decade. The company’s products look amazing and elegant, and you can’t break them. But SAP 370 defines only one of these three criteria. Yes, Sennheiser GSP 370 looks great, with a well-balanced flat profile and several ways to balance competitive music, movies and games. But it is also expensive, clumsy and depends on totally damaged software. This is our Sennheiser GSP 370 Review.
The GSP 370 has an exceptional design from Sennheiser and is very much in line with traditional aesthetics: smooth, matte black finishes for sturdy cups, double bands and folding microphone. As a result, they are immediately identifiable. They are resistant in the hand and the design of the closed head over the ear is neither too heavy nor too light, although they reach the lighter end of the spectrum with a weight of 285 grams.
This ensures enough comfort to be able to use them for hours on end, so you can benefit from the battery life that the GSP 370s offers (more on that later). However, it is usually a premium headset in terms of design and build quality – the robustness of the headset is evident. It would probably survive a good blow or two, while some headphones think they are held together with hope and dreams.
The design of the GSP 370 also promotes noise reduction through its composition: the way the headphones hug your head tightly means that their design prevents the arrival of external sound. This is probably something I would expect from a Sennheiser headset and at such a high price, but it is comforting to experience that it is so sublime.
Sennheiser GSP 370 review features
Some internal controls are connected to this quality version, making using the headset pleasant and comfortable. Below the microphone in the left cup, there is a triumvirate with small functions: the LED battery and the status indicator; charging via micro USB; then the on / off button. Simple and easy things to get used to and navigate through the feeling. On the right side of the glass, the large volume control does all the work – a significant but perfect part of the design.
Elsewhere, the USB dongle with which the 370 works on the PC and PS4 is a good and decent size – imagine a small USB stick. It’s not as small as the more expensive GSP 670s, but I prefer it because the 670 USB is smart, but small enough to be quite clumsy, especially when interacting with the PS4. But these problems don’t exist here, because it’s an easy-to-use USB for the 370.
The Bluetooth connection offered by the aforementioned dongle is always secure and also has a good range if you move away, hide behind the couch or just do something other than your PC or PS4. Elsewhere and on the PC, the GSP 370 uses Sennheiser Gaming Suite software (currently compatible with Windows 10 only). This is very useful and allows you to adjust and change the settings at your discretion, with some presets to select and other changes available. However, the audio in the box is so good and excellent that I doubt that many should change reality.
Sennheiser GSP 370 Performance Review
Starting with the usual aspects of the game’s audio tests, the weapon-filled gameplay of Doom and Wolfenstein and the soundtracks composed by Mick Gordon were a pleasure to hear; apparently, I gave myself the entire width of the 20 to 20,000 Hz frequency range of the headset. From little machine noises to hellish dagger and chainsaw madness to empty machine gun sprays, the audio was wonderful.
Meanwhile, games with detailed and more subtle audio profiles, like Assassin & Creed Odyssey, can reveal the inability of some headphones to present something lighter or more subtle. No problem here – the GSP 370 gave me an immersive audio experience that traveled through ancient Greece. Each wave that crashed or crashed against the ship or the shore was as real as real life; the collision of arms on the leg and tendons was frightening and detailed, and the voices were rich and clear.
I currently play Dying Light co-op with my friend, and the GSP 370s proved to be the perfect companion here, who excelled in all aspects of multiplayer games. Or, I must say, almost every aspect, due to the lack of game audio versus the chat audio balancer function, which seems like an overview when playing with friends. However, the overall fighting sound of the game was beautifully reproduced, and it was always clear how close the zombies were to you or which side the Nocturnes came at night.
The GSP 370s has improved this game because it can communicate with maximum clarity – the microphone is one of the best I’ve used in the last few months. With a wide brush, the game’s audio mix is beautifully balanced and can be enjoyed with the chat at the top (even if there is no specific balance function). The move to Netflix or a movie was just as fun and with the effectiveness of the 370s with voices and overall audio quality.
Absolutely yes. If you can save and expand your budget to a premium model, this is the one for you. If you swing between the Sony console and the PC, this is ideal. The GSP 370 headset comes closer to a headset with perfect score that I used and loses only one missing function: the balancer between audio and chat in the game, especially since this is something that the two official PS4 headsets have and perform very well. For the price of 370, you would probably expect this feature to exist in one form or another.
In addition, the GSP 370 is a ridiculously simple headset to recommend. And I would probably go so far as to say that this gives them a much more expensive GSP 670s, a severe run for their money; I would have trouble recommending the option for the 670s now, because the 370s offer equally excellent audio and overall performance, in addition to fantastic battery runtime. And also for less money.
If you are happy to pay a little more for Sennheiser – which is a very sensible thing to do – you should work at it if you can. The immense battery life is certainly worth a few other coins and the quality of Sennheiser will also generally make the price more palatable. In summary, this is one of the best PS4 headsets and the best PC headsets for gaming.
