    First off, I’m NOT a serious gamer. I have played some Call Of Duty with this headset and the sound has been amazing compared to my laptop speakers, but that can be expected at this price point.
    What I actually was looking for was a great sounding pair of headphones that I could wear for an extended period and use to take phone calls for work. I work from home frequently and have to participate in conference calls and IT support calls with clients, so I wanted something I could plug into my iPhone (you do need an adapter cable) that would allow me to hear clearly as well as provide better isolation and sound on the microphone side as well (it can get noisy at my house). I priced commercial “office” and call center style headsets and was underwhelmed at the audio specs and “noise cancellation” options out there. Having been a recording engineer for over 10 years in my previous life, I decided to shift my search to high quality headphone manufacturers that I’ve had experience with in the studio and Sennheiser tops that list for “open” ear designs, all day comfort and sound quality. Audio quality and frequency response on these headphones is top notch. As for the mic, it must be doing an amazing job because the first time I used it I had a 20 minute phone conversation with my boss while running from room to room to keep away from my toddler’s screaming and barking dogs. When I finally gave up and apologized for my non-professional behavior and background noise, he responded, “What do you mean? I didn’t hear a thing.”
    That is exactly what I bought these ‘phones for.
    If you are considering the “G4ME ZERO”- I actually tried these as well. They sounded great too, but I’m not a fan of being completely isolated in leather or plastic ear cups for prolonged periods of time. The G4ME ONE still keep me in the game or at work without sweaty earlobes and I’m not so isolated that I’ll miss my other phone ringing or a knock at the door.
    The only downside is that they are a bit bulky, not at all heavy or awkward, but just big and white… so you’ll look like an 80’s air traffic controller with them on. Depending on the size of your skull (my head’s pretty big), it might take a couple times to fully break them in. My earlobes ached for a few minutes after the first few hours on my head. Now I can wear them all day, they are extremely comfortable and I almost forget that they’re on.

    Coming from the Razer Tiamat 7.1, the Sennheiser G4ME ONE is a world of difference. The microphone stands out best between the two and seems to be of a higher quality than the Tiamiat I used before.

    Audio, overall, is fantastic. It really packs some punch with the bass and most levels seem to be great. Playing games like Battlefield 4 with these on really immerses you in the game environments. Music and video playback also sounds great, and – again – the bass really stands out here. (So if you don’t like bass in a headset, you probably won’t care for these!)

    These things are also incredibly comfortable, with the soft cloth earcups and relatively lightweight build. After hours of use, I barely even remember that they’re on! They have some huge earcups and you can also adjust the overall size of the headset to accommodate any head size!

    The auto-mute function of the microphone (when you move it into the upright position) and the on-earcup volume adjustment are two great little features that you don’t really see elsewhere. I find myself using the earcup adjustment a lot now that I have it and would much prefer it over a bulky inline piece.

    On top of all this, the thin, braided cable is lightweight and won’t pull your left earcup downward. For some, the non-removable cord might be a dealbreaker but for me, it works just fine.

    Overall, this is a great (and relatively expensive) pair of headphones. While I do think they’re fantastic, I can only recommend them at a price of $200 or less. Anything above that price puts you into territory with some other “better” headsets. But if you can find this bad boy on sale or just love the features, it’s well worth the price!

    This review is from: Sennheiser GAME ONE PC Gaming Headset – Black (Personal Computers)
    Great headset, but it shipped with an issue affecting one side of the headset. (Sound will not work unless you tap it a few times and then it still goes out. Some kind of bad connection). Because the item did not come directly from Sennheiser (shipped from another company), they will not help. Amazon would not help either for similar reasons so I am left with a $200 piece of faulty equipment. Other people may not have a problem, but you will be SOL if there is one unfortunately…
