Gaming headset manufacturer Sennheiser has announced a brand new headset for PS4 and PC gamers, though it’s a little different from the norm. Why? Because the GSP 370 will run for 100 hours, wirelessly, before needing a charge. How mental is that?!
I recently spent a lot of time with Sennheiser’s GSP 670 (review here) and the quality was amazing, though the price did bring a tear to my eye. For those looking for a cheaper alternative, the GSP 370 may be a viable option.
The GSP 370 connects to PS4 and PC via a wireless dongle that allows for low-latency audio. It also comes equipped with a microphone so you can stay chatting in your games. According to the press release, if you play for an average of six hours a day, you won’t need to charge the headset for four months. I can’t even go four hours without hunting down a socket for my phone, and that thing cost €900…
From the images provided, the GSP 370 looks somewhat similar to the GSP 670, so if it’s anywhere near as close in build quality, you’ll be in for a treat.
“With the GSP 370, we are adding another wireless gaming headset to our portfolio that not only features our highly praised low-latency connection, but also provides an impressive battery life. All this is rounded off with the typical Sennheiser virtues: high wearing comfort, premium craftsmanship and an exceptional audio experience”, says Andreas Jessen, Director of Product Management Gaming at Sennheiser Communications A/S.
The GSP 370 is available now via the official Sennheiser online store for £169/€199/$199.95 (US online store), as well as other retailers. However, if you buy directly from Sennheiser, you’ll get a nifty little headphone hanger as a free extra. It normally costs around £30/€35/$38.10. Not a bad deal, I say.
