Sennheiser Launches GSP370 Wireless Gaming Headset, 100 Hours of Battery Life

Sennheiser today launched the GSP370 gaming headset, which will allow you to immerse yourself in virtual worlds for as many as 100 hours between charges. Sennheiser have managed to improve power efficiency of the GSP370 over their current flagship, the GSP670, by more than five times - that one headset only lasts between 16 and 20 hours for each full charge. And this battery efficiency didn't come at the cost of maximum output levels - the 117dB SPL makes sure of that.

There's a noise-canceling mic in the headset, and memory foam pads appeal to comfort and extended gaming sessions. The GPS370 is compatible with PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4 (and Xbox as well with the headphone adapters or newer controllers) and is available on Sennheiser's website starting today for $199.95. Data transmission is taken care of by Bluetooth 5.0 (in a dongle adapter) and there's a micro USB charging cable in the box, which is enough to power the headset for usage even if its battery runs completely dry. Sennheiser will also include its GSA 50 headset hanger, which normally sells for $38, for free.

I love these kinds of marketing speak, will also include this for free... of course they won't, obviosuly the MSRP includes the cost of this as well as production costs, marketing, R+D, manufacturing etc etc it's not free in any sense of the word, ok, it's a nice inclusion, but none the less one that you ultimately pay for, free? Nope.

Yep. It's like when you buy a charger that includes batteries and they say the batteries are free.

What's wrong with that? Don't like the choice of wording?

$200? The end of 2019? It best be USB-C.

Almost everything I've owned that's micro-usb is unusable because the port wears out. Cable ends last a year or two at best.

I agree with Nater, even tho I'm a huge Sennheiser fan. It's unacceptable not to have type-c in this day and age.

Yup, USB-C ftw especially at this price tag.

I don't want wireless microwave radiation anything.

I do want Sennheiser 5.1/7.1 analog / digital headphones and for not more than $200. My Sennheiser stereo headphones haven't broken after years of wearing them to sleep listening to music. Before that I'd have to buy a new set of headphones every two to three months. Should they do analog (and they totally should) they should include splitters at the end of the wire for normal speakers. That would be badass, logical and as far as I can tell unique in the industry.

Honestly, usb-c at every price tag. The jack is SOOOO much superior to micro in terms of build quality.

Guess they're just cheap and don't want the cost to increase by wiring it for type c. Which is just silly.

Interesting! Where did you find this information ?
I couldn't find mention of Bluetooth anywhere... Sennheiser doesn't state that in specs. Other news sites only say "2.4GHz"

It's interesting from two perspectives:
1) I'm a bit wary of Bluetooth (admittedly based on experience on older revisions). Using various BT devices with my PC usually meant: crap audio quality and downright silly lag/latency.
2) On the other hand, it would be great it it could be used as a standard BT headset

As the owner of the GSP500, I see the same comfortable design for any head.

No doubt. They probably saved like 60 cents to completely rule out me giving them $200.

*edit*
And I'm passively searching for a new gaming headset. My old Sennheiser (10+ years old) headset's mic gave out. Bought a Corsair HS50 to get by, but that mic is essentially useless in the games I've tested it in (it picks up noise FROM the headset, until reducing the sensitivity to where it picks up nothing at all). Also got a Hyper X Cloud Alpha to replace that, and they're great (read: good enough), but I can't stand the volume/mic controls are on the cable and not the back/side of the earcups like on the Corsairs.

As it is now I share those two headsets w/ my two Fortnite maniacs until I can find one that checks all my boxes. I've been afraid to pull the trigger on something $200-$400 just to find some stupid quirk like above about them.

I'm in the same boat ! My Logitech G930 is dying and I'm looking for replacement.
I thought about Astro A20, but it seems like eye-candy hype thing...
Corsair Void Elite maybe ? Only few reviews out..

I saw this article the other day, and was interested in maybe getting a pair to replace my corded Sennheiser headset (PC 350). But after reading the bit about micro-usb I think i'll join the waiting for USB-C group.

Why on Earth does anyone care what USB connector these things use? They don't require data transmission FFS.

Cause I've been through 10's of micro USB cables that always fail over time, as have many others, USB C is just 100% more manageable and doesnt suffer from the same failings as micro USB, and if you have kids, forget about letting them use your micro USB chargers, they will ruin them even faster, I know :mad: :laugh:

I don't care if it has USB C or not. I'd actually rather NOT have it considering I already have dozens of NON USB C so...
