Thank you for your time.
-The Special Edition is based on the original design but is made in China. The original was made in Ireland.
-Not that it matters but the packaging is much cheaper on this version.
-The wiring seems a little bit thinner. Maybe 1 or 2 gauge thinner. Also the new wire has a mesh cover.
-The main difference of course is price. The original was $299+. This one has a much better price point.
I have tested with multiple music genres as well as some gaming. Fallout 4, Battlefield & PUBG. The sound seems much the same. I really can't tell a difference. I guess the only thing the remains is reliability. I guess time will tell.
UPDATE: When using these to record, the open cans leak far too much sound to keep the recording quality from hearing slight playback of the sound. While I understand recording with a pair of open headphones is not smart, it's a deal breaker for those maybe considering that for streaming or recording.
UPDATE: I've been able to "stretch" these out a bit by keeping them clamped over something wider than my head when I'm not using them, and it's taken a while for it to be effective but the pressure is significantly less than it was and they're much better to wear now. I'm raising the rating to four stars.

Out of the box they sound terrible, the frequency response is wide as expected but what was extremely weird was the fact then while a strong bass frequency was going UP in volume the higher frequency was cutted down. Maybe the membrane need to burn a little to this effect to disappear, but honestly I don't think can change a lot using this product for more time. it's unacceptable in my opinion from an important brand like Sennheiser to come out with something so bad out of the box.
But what let me return the headphone the day after was the EXTREME discomfort wearing them for long hours.
First if you have a medium to big ear, you can't stand them on your head, you ears wan't fit well inside the ear-cups, they are too narrow and cause me pain until the day after, second the clamping force it's to strong, or maybe the design this model to be used on a bike, because trust me, they won't fall from your head if used for that.
Or maybe this is just an expensive gadget for your child, who has a small head an do not get the difference between a good pair of headphone and a garbage one.
By the way for 150 box you get a good microphone on it that so far is the only reason to buy this product...if the sound quality was good.
I will never understand like famous YouTuber recommend this product for gamers above 8 year old.
I have used Sennheisers for ~20 years now and am a big fan for music, gaming and work. I have in-ear as well as full size headphones ... my whole family use them and I have to admit I do try to push the bar with each new pair I buy ... and these just take things to a whole new level.
I have some ~10 year old HD 515's which still work perfecly and I always thought sounded amazing, but the rich base and unbelievable clarity of these 360's really is quite stunningly pleasing ... makes my older 515's sound almost muted and muffled, which I never thought possible, but when compared back to back, you really do hear a huge difference.
I actually just wanted a comfortable and decent headset with a microphone for long work skype calls etc, but these have totally replaced my old 515 headphones for everything, including music, gaming etc ... 2 into 1 / PS4 connector is a great addition as it matches nicely and very useful on laptop, telephone, tablet etc ... and of course PS4's.
Other notes ...
- volume control is really useful, especially when switching between different apps such as music and skype calls - can increase or decrease volume very quickly, especially useful if something kicks in super loud
- microphone is excellent, lots of clarity and very sensitive, lifting up mutes it and has enough adjustment fore and aft to get comfortable or avoid breathe on microphone issues.
- "Open ear" means that you can hear yourself talk so don't end up shouting, and can also carry on conversations with other people in the room quite naturally without having to remove them ... although the open ear does mean that when you crank the volume up other people also hear what you are listening to ... so would not say its good for public transport or loud areas (need something more noise cancelling oriented for that)
- these require a little more "driving" than other headphones (ie lower headphone volume for any given volume level on your devices). Not found an issue yet where the device cannot supply enough volume to them, but worthy of a note, and hardly any sacrifice when you consider the sound quality of these beauties.
- sadly Sennheiser do not supply a bag with these, luckily I have an old one, but would be nice, especially if anyone is paying full price for them. (would prefer a bag over the fancy packaging, which tbh is pretty useless unless you want to store your headphones in them every day (but then you would need to collapse the "headband" to its smallest settings to get them back in the box each time)
- ear pads and foam is REALLY lush, almost feels wrong its so nice. I wear these for hours on end - they remain comfortable and do not cause overheating or any kind of sweaty ear syndrome.
Summary ... forget all your "gaming" brands with their high price gimmicky "base-boost" blah blah and marketting hype - Sennheiser do one thing, and they do it amazingly well ... they make fantastic sounding headphones.
At full price they are good, but if you find these on a half price deal like I did, then do not think, be like nike and "just do it!"
Paired with Nahimic 2, I can hear even the littlest change in the frequency settings.
Can easily tell what direction someone is coming from in FPS games.
My friends have said that I sound nice and clear on VoIP too :)
The ear cups are very soft velvet, a little bit narrow, but not uncomfortably so (for me at least).
Sadly the velvet material attracts little bits of fluff, and you'll find yourself picking if off just about every time you use it.
There is very little side-ways flex in the ear cups, perhaps a few mm at most.
The microphone is *slightly* flexible in the middle, but I wouldn't try to push it too far (it can move about 2 inches away from / towards your mouth).
The cable is long enough to plug into the back of tower if needed, but I had to put a cable tie around part of mine to shorten it.
Cable uses a soft braiding, making it very flexible. However, I worry that the braiding would not endure much strain at all, I'm always very careful with it.
This is the first "open acoustic" headset that I've used, it sounds nice enough when you're wearing the headset, but be aware that everyone around you will also be able to hear everything coming through this headset... even if you have the volume moderately low.
The over all design is very sturdy.
They are not as comfortable as my originals because one of my ears presses against the hard cover of the driver whereas on the original version, this does not happen.
I don't think the new one's handle sound quite as well either, especially the bass when played loud, it sounds like the driver is banging off it's mounting and I have to turn them down. I still have the original version of these headphones and it doesn't happen on them.
The Sennheiser PC 360 Special Edition delivers a lot of what Sennheiser is known for, which is a comfortable pair of headphones that deliver great, balanced sound. Having owned a pair of Steelseries Siberia Elites as my headphones prior to the PC360s, I can say that - compared to the Steelseries - the PC360's open-back design offers much clearer sound, much more detail and more strongly pronounced mid-tones. After comparing the two with the same songs, there are extra notes and sounds that the PC360 outputs clearly, which either are very muted or drowned out by the heavier bass of headphones like the Siberia Elites, for example. As is the nature of open-back headphones, though, outside sound is not blocked out as effectively, and thus this is not a good headset to use if you intend to use them in an environment with a lot of outside noise. Overall, the audio quality of the PC 360s is fantastic, especially for this price range, and the bass response is more than good enough if one is inclined to add bass through a software equalizer.
In terms of design, the PC 360 does not strut, but nonetheless has a nice, neutral design, with comfortable velvet ear pads (which are the best 'breathing' pads I have ever used, and will keep the area around one's ears cool and dry), and a Sennheiser logo displayed beneath the perforated grill that sits on the outer side of the cups, which gives it a nice, sophisticated, slightly 'industrial' look. One thing to mention with the velvet ear pads - as ridiculously comfortable as they are - is the nature of the material itself, which can more easily (compared to typical leather ear pads) be rubbed broken eventually (such as if you wear glasses and the 'arms' - i.e. the temple part - rubs against them), as shown in the picture. The velvet material of the ear pads also collects hair, but this is not a huge issue, and never hinders performance in any way.
One of the more notable aspects of the PC 360 is the huge microphone, ever-present in all shots of the PC 360. Among headphone microphones, the PC 360's is probably the best I have ever used (in terms of audio quality); this comes with a slight caveat though, which is the fact that the microphone can not be hidden; it can be pulled up (which also mutes the mic), but there is no sliding mechanism to hide it into the cup, nor is the microphone detachable. The microphone, thus, doesn't look great for usage outside, with its huge microphone sitting next to the left ear cup, but in terms of usability, it goes out of the way and is never a bother. The volume controls on the right ear cup follow a similar design philosophy, and are changed with a round dial, which is easy to get used to, and which never gets in the way.
The headset is made of plastic, making the headset light, but without much of a 'premium feel'. However, after almost a full year of usage, the headset has not suffered from physical damage, after having been through numerous drops, and one house move. The ear pads also don't extend around the edges of the cups, and thus there is no extra wear-and-tear on the pads from pulling or rubbing; after almost a whole year of using the PC 360s every day, the ear pads are still firmly attached to the rest of the headset and show no signs of tearing off or coming loose at the edge where the ear pads connect to the ear cups (which has been an issue on almost every previous headset I've owned).
The headset comes in a very minimalist and great-looking box, and has a long cable that is sure to be long enough for any computer set-up. If there is anything additional the headset could use, it is perhaps a detachable cable and the ability to switch out ear pads (seen on some newer headsets). Overall, though, the PC 360 is a great offering at its price, marrying Sennheiser's fantastic, rich sound with one of the best headset microphones on the market.
Just a small word of caution for prospective buyers. Sadly, the volume control wheel is now failing, and I have to fiddle with it for several minutes to ensure sound is coming out of both ears. Annoyingly, turning my head can then re-instate the problem. Given the price I should feel slightly aggrieved that they are now almost un-usable, however they have been fantastic up until this point.
Superb sound quality for this style of headset, excellent audio quality.
Used to use a PC150 headset and "upgraded" to a Logitech 930 wireless set that was audibly inferior and mechanically failed within 18 months of careful use.
Very very glad to be back with Sennheiser, the physical build and audio quality is vastly superior.
My only complaint would be the microphone switch mechanism in the arm. Unlike an "in cable" switch that is easy for a user to replace should it fail, the mechanism in the left earcup is going to be a lot harder to repair when the switch fails. I say "when" because that's almost completely inevitable, and I prefer goods that are user repairable. I'd give the product 5 stars if it had a removable cable (Again a longevity / maintenance issue) and had more faith in the microphone switch mechanism.
I really like this headset that it remains tight and comfortable after long use, it can be very tight on your head to begin with but that should slip into a more comfortable hold eventually. In comparison this wins here vs A4, I personally had a problem with the A40 clamp that basically lost it's spring and kept slipping down and resulted in quite a loose grip on my head.
Build quality feels inferior to the metal of an A40, however it being plastic it still holds very well and has been through a bit of a rough use with myself and has remained true.
I enjoy being able to essentially use the microphone when I require it and it's different to the A40 as the A40 you kinda have to remove the microphone as it's a modular headset, the only issue I have is that you can't really position the microphone on the PC360 to your comfort level, it's quite confined in it's position.
Sound quality does feel superior to the A40, although I believe them to be very similar and may just be my imagination.
The cord on the PC360 is a bit of a drawback, frequently it feels loose and that it may become more lose overtime, I've given myself a fright multiple times with thinking I've almost pulled it out, whereas this wasn't an issue with the A40 as it's modular and the cable just pops out.
If you're looking for a pc gaming headset and you've got some money to spend, either this PC360 or the A40 seems like a very suitable purchase, if possible get both and see which you prefer personally, either way you're in the land of luxury gaming headsets and as such you can be picky and critical :)
I have owned a blue yeti microphone and it is almost, if not on par with it. Simply outstanding for a headset that has been out for almost 10 years. Bought for £90 near christmas, I would wait for a sale and purchase, you will not be dissapointed.
Only negative I have is the wire over time because prone to tangles but can be countered easily.
With the use of a sound card it has certainly improved things though.
Good value for money and nice build quality.
I wear them pretty much all day at work for Skype and they aren't unbearable
