Sennheiser GSP 670 Review

Introduction


By releasing the wireless GSP 670, Sennheiser has completed its new gaming headset lineup. This headset is based on the same design we saw on the GSP 500 (reviewed here), GSP 550 (reviewed here) and GSP 600 (reviewed here), but gets rid of the wire, replacing it with dual wireless connectivity (2.4 GHz radio and Bluetooth).



Like the GSP 600, the GSP 670 sports a closed-back design. Even though the GSP 670 uses a slightly modified, "stealthier" color scheme, it's nearly identical in almost every other way. Meaning, it's a large headset with adjustable headband tension, a pivotable microphone that automatically mutes itself when tilted up, large volume knob, and massive, user-replaceable ear cushions. Sennheiser also implemented a couple of nifty extra features, some of which aren't seen on competing wireless headsets, such as the ability to turn itself on and off automatically without the user having to do anything. However, the $349.95/€349 price tag isn't easy to swallow, especially when we take into consideration that some of the best wireless gaming headsets on today's market cost significantly less—the HyperX Cloud Flight is priced at $140/€90, the SteelSeries Arctis 7 will cost you $115/€130, and even the super luxurious SteelSeries Arctis Pro Wireless goes for $279/€279. Let's find out if the Sennheiser GSP 670 has what it takes to beat all of them.
