If you were trying to find a good pair of gaming headphones like me and search all over…LOOK NO FURTHER! THE Sennheiser Gaming One headset is a really great buy for anyone looking to get best quality in construction and sound quality! The fit is very comfortable and has a wide adjustment for any size head.
I wear glasses when I play and these headphones don’t squeeze them into my skull like most headphones do. ALSO this product comes with TWO cables: one cable that 3 meters that splits into separate sound and mic, and other that goes straight to 3.5mm audio/mic (for Xbox One, ps4 or mobile devices). Both cabels are braided and are built to last! The headset is also very loud! I had mine plugged into my Xbox One controller and only set the volume to 1/4th the way and it was perfect.
You can crank these puppies UP! My only complaint is that I can get sound when I plugged the 3.5mm I to my phone (I think it’s because of the mic) but the split cable works when I use just the headphone jack only. Over all a really nice headset for anyone who wants to upgrade their gaming sessions.

2.2 The best review

I’m not an audiophile so I honestly can’t speak if it gives the best sound quality. The headset is super light weight and last a really long time, 16 hours to be specific if you have it at 50% volume. I use it at much less, and honestly it last so much longer. I haven’t had a single mic complaint, and it works for me.
The surround sound is pretty decent, I use it for fps games, and at the end of the day, I would rather have convenience than buying a really good headset that is wired, and a attachment mic. If I want amazing sound, thats what speakers are for. When I play games, I don’t exactly need the best sound ever, because I’m gaming. For music and movies, thats what speakers are for.

3.2 The best review

The headset itself is great. Audio quality is clear, and it is the most comfortable headset that I’ve ever owned. The ear cups do a good job of canceling noise out as well. The microphone works great also, however a plastic piece broke off of it, leaving an exposed wire and a shaky, unstable mic.

Take a look at the attached picture if you want to see exactly what I’m talking about. I have contacted Kingston customer service asking them to replace the mic since this headset comes with a 2 year warranty and am currently waiting to hear back from them. I will update my review, and depending on how they handle this issue change my rating to either 1 or 5 stars.

Update: Kingston replaced the mic for free under warranty. They sent it with 2 day shipping and didn’t even require me to send the broken part back. This was an example of great customer service and I can say that I am now very pleased overall with this purchase.

4.2 The best review

These are great for the price. I would recommend to others and buy again. The mic quality on both PS4 and PC have been great. Sound is good, and I prefer open back to let some of the air get through.
The muffs are fabric, but I think for the cost this is fine. If you’re okay without 7.1 surround and don’t want to spend too much on ugly gaming headphones, these are a great choice. Black with simple details and avoiding all the tryhard dorky “design” aesthetics I see on other gaming headphones is a definite PLUS.

5.2 The best review

I got these headphones on sale for 200$ and so far I love them. I wouldn’t consider myself an audiophile so I can’t speak for terms such a soundstage and what not.
The head phones fulfill my need for good sound with deep base the fact that they can be wireless and contain a mic, is also a plus. Phone calls sound good and the mic seems clear. The headphones also feel sturdy and the buttons are responsive with an audible click when pressed. All in all, these headphones are great!
Thanks,
Eurypharynx;)

6.2 The best review

Just received this today and could not wait to get home and try it out. So far I have used it for a total of four hours and I am so glad that I bought it.
First, the sound quality compared to my old Logitech set is AMAZING! Second, The cord is very long, about 7-feet. So that gives me a lot of option on how to hook it up since my CPU sit under my desk on the floor. Third, The price, for just $54 + free shipping it makes this buy that much better. I understand there are better headsets out there but the price tag associated with those headsets are extremely high.
Lastly, having over-the-ear compared to on-the ear headset makes a big difference. So far I have had the SteelSeries Siberia v2 on since I unpackaged it and have not felt the need to rip it off my head. Those who have or had on-the-air headsets understand what I am talking about. Do yourself and your ears a big favor and buy this headset. You will not be disappointed!

7.2 The best review

I really enjoy playing games where I can talk to other players. This headset delivers it has fantastic sound and voice quality. I did a lot of research before I bought my headphones. I wear them all over my house, the Range is incredible.
My computers in the back bedroom, I’m able to walk all over my house from my garage to the kitchen and even the bathroom and I won’t miss anything. Sound quality never drops mic quality never drops. Plus I love the way they feel cupping my ears instead of bending them. These are by far the best headphones I’ve ever owned. It’s also nice that I can change the color of the LEDs anytime I want.
I usually run with them off because no one’s looking at me. So overall if you’re looking for a new headset this Corsair void wireless headset is probably the one you should pick up. I’ll definitely be getting another pair for my wife. She loves using them to watch movies so that she doesn’t have to hear the kids or so the kids don’t have to hear the movie. Sometimes I just listen to music in the front room over Pandora on the computer. They also say they hook to the Xbox or PS4 but I don’t have either because computer Master race.

I love everything about these headphones. I bought one for myself, and a week later bought two more for kids enrolled in online courses.

– Excellent noise cancelation (especially for travel and online learning in a family environment)
– Great sound (Noise cancelation mode seems to enhance the base just a tad)
– The feel, solid
– The construction (metal)
– Wired or wireless (wired will not work with phone calls)
– Works well for phone calls in Bluetooth mode
The seller and the product both delivered perfectly.
I rarely post reviews, and I almost never give 5 star ratings.
This one deserves it.

Super quality and sound to these earphones! Have stuck with Razer Kraken for about 5 years now. Is an investment worth making for the hard core game player or music lover. Thanks so much for the super fast ship and superb sound quality to these headphones!!

The earpads will wear out before the the headset ever will. Great option is you can replace the earpads when needed. I have been through a few pairs of the pads, as I play daily on my computer. Worth every penny these are!! Thanks so much!

10.2 The best review

Admittedly my only basis for comparison is a pair of Turtle Beach headphones I bought for over $100, which didn’t particularly wow me, and they weren’t very comfortable and were clunky. I also dont often play with headphones as I’ve got a pretty decent home stereo set up that I enjoy.

I picked these up after chatting with one of the Steel Series staff (I live in their hq city) and was impressed. For the price point they are spectacular headphones, and their fit and finish is so much better than Razor or Turtlebeach. The small touches of this product, like the cool art stickers that come in the box ( i think those were made by a local artist!), and the minimalist and clean feel of the instructions make this set of headphones feel like it was made for the professional gamer and the the discerning “adult” customer.

The finish of the headphones themselves is clean, the retractable, inset microphone is fantastic, and having all the controlls On then headphones along with the raised mute button are genius! Also love that I can use them for my PS4, my XBone, OR for casual listening on my iPhone.

As for sound quality, music sounds fantastic. Crisp sound and heavy thump when appropriate without being over bearing. I’ve only been playing Rainbow Six Siege with them so far, but the ability to tell where enemies are bases on hearing has been game changing.
