Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I currently have the Sennheiser PC360 headset that I've been gaming with for over a year. So I'm quite familiar with this excellent headset. In fact, they are nearly identical. The 363 has a vented covering instead of wire mesh on the outer ear piece and the mic grill is orange. That's about it. The big piece that you're paying for here is the USB sound card that creates a virtual 7.1 surround environment with Dolby Digital. So let's see how it works.

USB SOUND CARD

The big difference here is the USB adapter, which is basically a sound card with Dolby Digital. It connects to the USB port via the short cable attached to the sound card itself. There is an included USB extension cable. This is handy in case you want to use with a notebook and need to minimize having wires all over the place. As always, before you begin, install the software on the CD. Then simply connect the standard headset and mic jacks to the adapter. This should tell you right away this is only virtual surround sound. More on that below.

The USB Sound Card has 2 settings. Normal stereo mode and Dolby Digital surround mode. The best way to describe the effect is that it just widens the sound stage. Instead of it sounding like it's in your ear, it sounds like it's around your head. If it works correctly, this should also help you better determine where sounds are coming from in relation to your position in game.

SOFTWARE

It's really more of a driver than actual software. After installed from the CD all you get is task-bar icon that lets you select between different surround modes. Such as 2.1, 5.1, 7.1, etc. With Windows 8 x64, I found it to be buggy to say the least. I had to reboot for it to let me change from 2.1 to 7.1.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My husband is a freelance network TV soundman who has worked on shows like Good Morning America, the Today Show, Nightline, and many more. He knows that Sennheiser, Shure and Sony have the best reputation in the professional market. This headset brings that same level of quality to the consumer market.

Normally, I would list pros and cons, but so far I haven't found any cons. I loved my previous Sennheiser headset until it started to fall apart. The thin outer layer on the earphones and the cushion for the piece that goes over your head started to disintegrate after several years of use, and I started to find little black flakes on my head and face after I used it. I replaced that headset with a much cheaper and surprisingly good Plantronics GameCom headset, which does its job quite well.

Sennheiser's latest gaming headset is so much better, though.

PROS:

Construction--this headset seems to be sturdy and well-constructed. My favorite headsets have the cord well protected in a kind of woven material, and these have that. One headset I once had broke where the cord connected to the headset, a problem I wouldn't expect to have with this headset because all the connectors seem well protected. This headset therefore gets top grades for construction.

Comfort--this is without a doubt the most comfortable headset I've ever owned. I thought that the Plantronics one was relatively comfortable, but now after trying these, I realize that the velvet covering the padding on the earphones of the Plantronics headset is rough in comparison. I could probably wear these all day, although they do make my ears a bit warm. (That's to be expected. The best sound requires a closed space, and closed spaces don't release heat.

I love this headset. It works great and sounds great both speakers + what it records of your voice.

Though i did run into two issues.

1. Updated drivers were a bit of a pain in the rear to find, even on Sennheiser's websites. I ended up having to get the newest driver e-mailed to me by one of the Sennheiser's Tech's. While the drivers are only really necessary for the In-line sound-card (the usb sound card), its still nice to be able to easily find updated drivers.

2. Apparently, this headsets in-line sound card does NOT like the USB 3.0 slots on my computer. Anytime i have it plugged into one of the 3.0 USB's i will constantly hear a scratching / static'y sound for a few seconds, every minute or so. This goes away instantly and does not re-occur if i have it plugged into a 2.0 USB port though. Making me feel its a issue thats directly linked to USB 3.0.. and either the in-line soundcard itself, or their software for it.

Aside from those two minor issues, my 363 has performed great ever since i got it last year.

Why did I give it 5 stars? It's simply an outstanding headset, so I believe it deserves nothing less. I still have a couple cons about it, but to me, those cons aren't even worth removing a star from the product.

What I like about it:
- Extremely comfortable
- Excellent microphone
- Superb audio quality
- Very light.

What I dislike:
- Bass might be a bit low. Although I've yet to fully determine that since I'm still tweaking it with the sound card's equalizer settings. But that's what I noticed, so far.
- Price.

Who would I recommend this headset to? Honestly, I'd recommend it to anyone, not just gamers, who are looking for a quality headset, and are willing to pay the premium for it.

People might tell me I'd have better ended up buying the PC 360 since I already have a sound card (Creative Sound Blaster Z), because it's cheaper than the 363D, which is more expensive due to the Dolby 7.1 audio processor, but I personally wanted to buy the latest in the market, and I like having more audio options.

I apologize in case you expected this review to include the 7.1 adapter, but since I haven't tried it yet, it makes sense to not say anything about it just yet. However, I'll be updating this review once 7.1 is tested, and also after tweaking the overall sound & bass.

[Jul 17, 2013] Update #1: Both the 7.1 adapter & tweaking of the sound card have been done and tested. With the 7.1 Dolby adapter, it sounded just "Okay", but the lack of Bass is very noticeable. However, I didn't notice any drop in microphone quality, so that's a good thing. The surround sound performance is probably the best I've ever heard on a headset. This was tested with games, such as Crysis 3 and FarCry 3.
