First impressions on removing it from the packaging (which I had no trouble with, following the directions on the box) were of durability and a solid build. It's well put together, nothing seems flimsy or cheap, but its also surprisingly lightweight. The wire is quite heavy duty, unlike the Altec Lansing and Logitech headsets I previously owned. Not to mention robust strain relief where the wire connects to the headset, the control pod, and the jacks.
The control pod is perfectly positioned and lightweight, so even if it's dangling you don't even feel it, unlike the bulky control pods on some other headsets. In terms of fit, the ears swivel almost 45 degrees in each direction, and extend from the head-bar with solid clicking intervals. The headbar and ears are both covered in comfortable velor padding which unlike faux-leather on my previous altec lansings, don't cause your skin to sweat and stick to it. The earpieces swivel slightly in and out, and if you push firmly on them they will collapse inward with a snap - don't be afraid, it just prevents them from collapsing on accident, which I was concerned about when I saw them folded inward in the pictures.
They collapse solidly but will not do so by themselves. The microphone is adjustable, but not overly so - you have to bend it firmly to adjust the position and it won't bounce back on its own.Read more ›
The higher impedance of these also makes it easier on the equipment and lower on the noise (lower impedance = higher introduced noise; downside is lower power output capability from the same amp (unless it has a multi-voltage-rail type design, but that's another topic).) However, the stock on-board sound-card in one of my test rigs was more than capable of still reaching physically painful volumes without any trouble and have room left on the knob. With higher-end, more potent sound-cards or external setups, lots of room left on the knob.
Still, every person hears differently so you can't go by anyone's opinions but your own. (The average person starts to have a high-frequency fall-off in their early middle age, for example. I do not (yet) but take extra special care of my hearing wearing earplugs where many people do not.) But for an SQ buff like me, these are beyond good, well into very nice. Not perfect, but what is...
Those 'other' gaming sets (and honestly, I've tried them all) and other tiny-multi-speaker sets that try to do a 5.1 setup can not truly hold a candle to the sound quality of these (and you don't need those for 5.1 type sound. I play competitive FPS with these and can easily tell right where everything is without question).Read more ›
-The sound is amazing. This is the first headset that after playing with the EQ settings you can actually get these bad boys to vibrate pretty hard from the bass with no distortion. In fact I can turn everything all the way up and get no distortion.
-The mic is great no reverb and the inline mute works well
-Closed design really does eliminate outside noise for the most part.I would say about 80 percent or so.
-Build quality is amazing
-And I must say this headset is pretty
-The inline volume is almost useless. If you turn it all the way down it doesnt go mute or even close to it I would say all the way down on the little wheel thing is 50 percent volume and of course all the way up on the wheel is 100 percent.I am not sure if mine is defective or maybee thats the way high end phones are.I use the PC volume anyway so it doesnt bother me too much.
Overall I love them and if it werent for the volume wheel I would have gave it 5 stars.
Backlog: I have both a big head (12.5 inch circumference!) and I wear glasses. Both my large cranium and glasses usually do not mesh well, actually at all, with gaming headsets. With my previous gaming headset (Logitech clear chat) I could game for about 1-2 hours before brewing a massive headache, then I would have to switch to my lame 2 desktop speakers. I was in desperate need of a comfortable gaming headset that had great sound and great mic quality.
Enter Sennheiser PC 350 Gaming Headset:
Extremely comfortable; I have had the headset for about three weeks. Don't let this fool you on testing. I am a college student with lots of time on my hands! Over the last three days I have put in 15 hour gaming sessions, per day, (Mass Effect 2~ I was sucked in!!) and I didn't have to re-adjust or take off the headset once. The cushions on these puppies are thick, VERY sound dampening, and plush. My ears (also large) fit nicely in the cups without any contact. The ear cups (don't know what to call them) completely envelop my ears and create a nice seal (even with my thick nerd glasses). The headset is very adjustable; the ear cups swivel, and articulate in many positions to fit against your head. The head strap has many different levels of adjustment, to raise or lower the ear cups on your head.Read more ›

Great headset. It still works great after a few years of use. The only thing that has degraded is the inside ear pieces have start to shed. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Truman
