Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"Unfortunately, I couldn't find one on Amazon that I could be certain would fit."
_
"I don't know why I'm having such a bad time with these headphones but the one I received from Amazon were faulty."
_
"I hate waiting for things, I overnight everything from Amazon, Sennheiser's best option on the adapter is 3-day select shipping and they came through and exactly three days."
_
"REVIEW OF: SENNHEISER GAME ONE PC GAMING HEADSET-BLACKI'd like to thank Amazon for the opportunity to review this wonderful headset that I received as a complimentary sample."
_
"So we started searching Amazon for the best option and when I saw that Sennheiser was selling some, I got convinced it would be a great idea to try one."
_
"Especially if you can get a used pair from Amazon Marketplace for a reasonable price."
_
"Returned effortlessly through Amazon."

Audio

Audio:
"Bass isn't too loud (like the Kraken), the sound is tight (Steelseries audio lacks here), the Mic is the best integrated mic I've used (Astro A40 had not the best mic), and the audio is very crisp."
_
"Now, imagine that a CT Awper peeks dumpster at long A and gets the early pick on one of your mates, you wouldn't be able to hear and identify exactly where that occurred by audio alone, you would hear a muddy shot that sounds like it could be from pit, long A, Car, Goose, etc."
_
"The headset audio quality was good, but not the best i have heard, and wearing the headset for extended periods of time leaves your ears a little numb."
_
"Mind you my Asrock x99 extreme 5 motherboard has decent onboard audio, and they sound good on it."
_
"You will get better performance from them hooking them up to sound card with amplifier or external audio amp, but they are fairly easy to drive; even on a cell phone."
_
"Great audio, very comfortable, light, love the easy muting, etc..."
_
"They audio is amazing and gets very loud."
_
"Using this with an older Astro Mixamp (2-3 years old) through usb with Sennheiser Combo Audio Adaptor on PS4; no complaints whatsoever."

Cable

Cable:
"Only downside is that since it's a PC headset you'll need the Y cable to combine chat and audio to one 3.5mm jack and there's no sound mixer since that's generally done on the computer."
_
"I had the Sennheiser Game PC 360 headphones, and I loved them just fine, until one day my leg got tangled in the (very) long cord, and snap---the cable broke."
_
"They don't hurt my ears and the cord isn't easily tangled because it's covered in material braided cord."
_
"After perusing the internet for wired emulated surround sound configurations, this is what I settled on:- Sennheiser G4ME ONE BLACK PC Gaming Headset- Xbox One Stereo Headset Adapter- iClever 4.8A 24W Dual USB Travel Wall Charger with SmartID Technology, Foldable Plug for iPhone iPad, Samsung Galaxy, HTC Nexus Moto Blackberry, Bluetooth Speaker Headset, Power Bank and More, White- ASTRO Gaming MixAmp Pro- Turtle Beach Ear Force Chat Cable for PlayStation 4 Headset Compatibility (TBS-0276-01)- BlueRigger Digital Optical Audio Toslink Cable (50 feet)- CL3 Rated- Recoton Fiber Optic Toslink to 3.5mm Mini Adapter- ScanSound HM-1132 Microphone Windscreen, 32mm x 11mm internal (non-amazon)One thing that was hard to determine from reviews: the cable running to the headset base is removable."
_
"Also love that they come with a 1 connection stereo cable and the split mic headphone cable so I can use em with my xbox one or my pc, as well as any other headphone use."
_
"The quality of the cable is nice braided cable for durability."
_
"Mic quality is great, auto mute is awesome, you can wear them for hours without feeling weighted down, cord is permanently attached but has a great braided exterior that puts every other Sennheiser cord that I have ever seen to shame."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"after few days of heavy use i fell in lovethe headset is very comfort (not the best but its very good)the sound is AMAZING its so good that i hear things i never heard b4 both in music and fps games(Black ops 3 CS)- before that i had the ATH500(old model)the mic is so great ."
_
"The other downside is this soft felt is supposed to make it very comfortable against your head, and that's true, but I also find the fabric to feel hot."
_
"The razer Tiamat 7.1, great surround sound and comfort, but horrible stereo mode."
_
"I cannot compare their unparalleled comfort to any other headset I've ever owned."
_
"I did not find them to be exceptionally comfortable(my frame of reference is two pairs of Audio-Technica headphones that I use at home and work which I find to be extremely comfortable)."
_
"I've tried several different ones..G35 earpiece broke off..Steel series just not comfortable had a Turtle beach set originaly that was too small for my big ears."
_
"Great sound, highly comfortable and a great boom."
_
"This is by a long shot the most comfortable and well-built headset ive used."
_
"Great audio, very comfortable, light, love the easy muting, etc..."
_
"The one thing that I liked about these is that they were somewhat comfortable but a little on the small side."
_
"Great sound, great mic, they're very comfortable... all that is fine, but I'm going to end up returning these because I do not enjoy hear cars drive by while I'm trying to listen to music or play a game."

Design

Design:
"That's a major design flaw, and is completely unacceptable for such an expensive headset."
_
"As far as sound isolation, these headphones are designed to allow you to hear your surroundings, not for good isolation."
_
"The open design is not only more comfortable but it allows you to be able to have a conversation with your wife in between games so that she can retrieve you a frosty beer without having to take them off."
_
"It fully covers both ears (better to pick up hard to understand voices)It's a open design so I can still hear myself talk (instead of a weird underwater effect that I get when I talk with in-ear headphones with a mic, like the Klipsch S4)The audio and mic are both excellent, haven't had a single complaintIt has some kind of noise-cancelling technology in the mic to try not to pick up background soundsThe mic is on a fixed (non-flexible) boom, so I don't have to worry about whether or not I've positioned it correctly (too far from or too close to my mouth for good audio) Edit: I just noticed that it actually is somewhat flexible, but it's not a gooseneck where you have no idea where the correct placement should be."
_
"The ear cups are very comfortable and for an open-back design these have a surprising amount of bass."
_
"The design is really nice."
_
"So I was very pleased to see that they fixed that design flaw in this latest model of open-air high-end gaming headset from Sennheiser."
_
"Better sound IF you don't have much noise around you (i. e. you can carry on a conversation with someone next to you as though you're not wearing headphones).GAME ZERO: closed design, hotter and GREAT passive noise isolation."
_
"-Nice design, sturdy."

Gaming

Gaming:
"Get these and an amp, if you dont have $300 and you want a decent gaming headset."
_
"It would be 5 stars but, being a high quality (if not the best gaming headset available)it's hard to believe they don't have an amp built in."
_
"If gaming is all you care about, these aren't the best cans for that."
_
"However, they are certainly without question the best gaming headset I've ever listened to and I've listened to everything from Logitech to Plantronics, to Razer, Turtle Beach, etc."
_
"The sound quality is unbeatable for a gaming headset and the noise canceling mic is fantastic."
_
"This is especially nice for long gaming sessions."
_
"It works extremely well for console gaming but that's the only lacking feature."
_
"I bought these for gaming but find myself really enjoying going through my music library and comparing both headsets."
_
"I read a lot of forums talking about whether on not the Kingston Hyper X's or these were the best option for gaming."

_
"just reduce volume levels from the right earLASTLY but also important is the amazing build quality - Sennheiser earn the price tags they offer : )conclusion ?"

_
"The volume is quite good, but it just sounded more tinny than I would like."
_
"I LOVE that the mic mutes when I lift the mic and I love that the volume control is on the ear piece instead of the cord (which is part of why it doesn't tangle)."
