First off, both sound absolutely fantastic paired with an adequate amplifier. I gave the ZEROs a good test run with a couple long gaming sessions and listening to some tunes. I was impressed by the quality of the sound, they sounded great. Gaming is where I ran into trouble. I typically use closed headphones, but I've always used cheaper ones, which don't isolate the sound as well as higher quality headphones. Games sounded great, but talking to teammates was very troublesome. They are so well isolated, I can't hear myself talking. At all. Plug your ears with your fingers and try holding a conversation with someone, exactly like that. Even enabling the stereo mix setting that allows you to quietly hear yourself through the mic, it wasn't enough. I just could not stand it. Enter the G4ME ONE.
I finally unboxed my G4ME ONEs today and plugged them in. The sound quality is close on both, but these seem to be a bit cleaner, especially on the lows. On the ZEROs, bass felt ever so slightly "detached" from the mids, if that makes any sense. On the ONEs, the frequencies seem to blend better. They're outstanding. Mids and highs are crystal clear, bass is clean and punchy but not boomy at the extreme low end. They sound very natural all around.
One small con about both headsets, is that the volume wheel on the right ear cup doesn't go to 0 volume. It only goes down to about 25% volume, which is a little irritating if you want to quickly silence your headset.
A few other differences between the two is that the ONEs are an all-plastic design, whereas the ZEROs have a metal rod connecting the ear cups to the headband. How much that actually adds to the structural integrity, I don't know. The ZEROs also come in a carrying case (that nobody in their right mind would use) and so the ear cups rotate 90 degrees to fit into the case. The ONEs only rotate a few degrees, which is fine for me. The ZEROs win hands down in comfort; it's like soft, leather-wrapped pillows around your ears, and they're large, but my ears got very hot very fast (and I was wearing them in a ~55-60 degree house). The ONEs have slightly smaller felt cups and are a little denser but no temperature issues. Other than that, they're very similar.
In summary, the ZEROs would be ideal if you're just listening to music (but then why are you buying a headset?), and the heat isn't an issue for you. For all around use, the ONEs are the clear winner here, at least in my opinion. The sound is incredible and slightly better than the ZERO, they're plenty comfortable, and if you need to talk or hear a fire alarm going off, you can. They don't suffer from the heat issues and feel reasonably durable.
Overall, very, very happy.
- The most comfortable headphones I've ever put on my head.
- Excellent sound isolation.
- Excellent sound isolation. So good that it becomes a problem to talk.
- They get VERY hot, very fast.. no breathability.
- Ever-so-slightly richer and more fluid sound.
- I can hear myself talk.
- Ears stay nice and cool
- Because of the open design, you can hear the outside world pretty clearly.. but this is to be expected.
- Slightly firmer, slightly smaller ear cups. Fabric (microfiber?) instead of the amazing leather-wrapped heavenly marshmallows in the ZEROs. Still very comfy though.
- Unbelievable sound quality.
- High quality braided cord, doesn't tangle.
- Mic conveniently turns off/on when you flip it up/down.
- Volume wheel only goes from ~25%-100%, not down to 0%.
I have mine paired with a Sound Blaster Z sound card. Do not, I repeat, *DO NOT* try to run these without an aftermarket sound card, they WILL sound terrible. The onboard audio controller on motherboards does not supply enough power to drive them adequately, and is often accompanied by a fair amount of electrical interference. And don't cheap out and buy a $20 sound card either, those typically don't offer any more amplification than onboard audio.
UPDATE (9/2017): After about 2.5 years (warranty is 2 years), the fabric on one of the ear cups split at the seam. See attached photo. Bummer. Sennheiser does sell replacements (Model HPZ 26) but I don't have a clue how you're supposed to put them on. Unlike other headphones, these seem to be permanently fixed.
Turtle Beach Elite 800x
HyperX Cloud II
HyperX Cloud Revolver S
plus a bunch of crappy sub $40 headsets.
These blow all of those out of the water in terms of sound quality and mic quality. Without a single doubt, Sennheiser makes THE best microphone on a headset, period. Nothing even comes close. Now, for the sound, I love the open-back design of these. It allows for a much more robust soundstage, and a really unique experience if you're coming from only using closed-back headsets like I did. Closed-back mean you can't hear very much, if any, external noise when using them. If you game in a noisy environment, maybe look at another of Sennheiser's offerings, but if you game in a relatively quiet space, open-back is the way to go. As for comfort, the velour (cloth) earpads are perfect for long gaming sessions. Gone are the days of sweaty ears from leather earcups.
I cannot recommend these enough. If you are looking for something with "mic monitoring," then look no further, because you can legitimately hear yourself talk as though you aren't even wearing a headset with the Game One's.
9/10 audio (the open back does not allow for much bass)
I thought it would be strange to have an open back design in a headset, but it is very nice, breathable and comfortable. Although I haven't used these much yet the little I have I could tell a huge difference! I adjusted the Xbox settings to have everything come through the headset. The new remake of COD wasn't coming through my surround sound like the old games would clearly. With these I could hear which direction sounds were coming from and a ton of detail that I was loosing through my surround.
The sound detail from these are crisp and clear. Exactly what I would expect from Sennheiser! The velvet ear covers are very comfortable and the headset itself is very light. This will be nice for long hours of game play or retract the boom for music listening. The mic boom has a bendable section which can be adjusted to your liking. And the red on black has a very classy and sophisticated look.
I highly recommend this headset for anyone looking for a quality headset that looks great, is light/comfortable and that has amazing sound quality! There is no comparing these to the stock headset and surround sound. These out perform those on every aspect!
I will update this review later if anything changes as I use these more.
**NO NEED FOR ADAPTERS!!**
One thing I want to add as I had seen in other reviews. My headset came with two audio adapter cords which plug into the bottom of the left ear cup. The one cord is as you see in the pictures with the dual output. One for the mic and one for the headphones. The other adapter eliminates the need for an adapter when going to an Xbox One controller. This is a single cord coming out of the headset and it has a single 3.5mm 4 pole male plug that connects directly to the Xbox One controller with the 3.5mm headset plug. So no need to purchase additional adapters like the older units and other reviews!!
Top reviews from other countries
I expected more from Sennheiser. These headphones look good, but that's about it. There is nothing special about the sound and they are pretty uncomfortable. I have the Sennheiser HD 380 Pro and the Sennheiser CX 3.0 where each were the same price as this headset, but the Sennheiser GAME ONE sounds and feels more like $20 walmart headphones. I got these for $120 but I'd say they're only worth about $40 tops. The right ear cup speaker driver also seemed damaged because it was distorting and clipping far more than the left ear cup. The detaching cable is a nice feature, but replacements would be hard to find or expensive because the end that connects to the headset is not a standard 2.5mm jack let alone 3.5mm.
I consider myself to be a casual audiophile and supporter of Sennheiser products. I loved the CX 3.0 earbuds, and the HD 380 Pros served very well for mix engineering back when I was into that. I still plan on buying Sennheiser HD 598s or Sennheiser HD 600s in the future and still respect Sennheiser, but this headset was just a pure letdown.
- It only sounds good in the mid-treble and treble region.
- Mid bass is lacking and sub bass is hardly existent. No bass response under 50 hz at all.
- Bass violently distorts the speakers when turned up too high killing all other simultaneously occurring frequencies.
- Sound-stage width is pretty bad.
Very uncomfortable for a medium sized head. The headband cushion is too thin making the plastic support sit on your head. Ear-cup cushions are hard do not make an air tight seal.
RAZER KRAKEN V2 COMPARISON
I returned the Sennheiser GAME ONE headphones to get back the Krakens I returned in hopes of the Sennheisers being better. I was very wrong.
Check out my review here: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/customer-reviews/R36PN19OMEGSMN/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B06Y3YNSMJ
He probado muchos audifonos (mas que nada para gaming, Astro a40, varios modelos Turtle Beach, Tritton, Razer y Hyper X) y tengo que decir que estos tienen el mejor sonido que haya experimentado, sin mencionar que el microfono es bastante bueno (no como los Astro donde en el 90% de sus headsets el microfono es basura, te hace que suenes como robot, y aun asi la gente le da 5 estrellas aqui). Ahora, tambien tengo unos audifonos V Moda, los cuales me han durado mucho, casi siempre cuido muchisimo mis cosas pero por alguna razon esos se me han caido como 15 veces en 2 años y aun funcionan al 100%, creo que tienen un sonido muy bueno (aun que siempre pense que mis Turtle beach Tango sonaban mejor para la musica). Bueno pues estos Sennheiser se llevan de calle a los V Moda, no hay comparacion, suenan increible, la claridad me deja perplejo la verdad, ya hasta estoy pensando en comprar otros para tener unos para gaming y otros para musica. Son mis primeros Sennheiser y pues la marca se acaba de ganar un cliente mas.
Estos audifonos te dan un sonido muy natural, si esperas que tengan un super bajo, olvidalo, no te gustaran. Estan creados para dar un sonido claro y de calidad, no para apantallar, no te haran retumbar la cabeza ni escucharas explosiones exageradas (para eso te recomiendo los Hyper X que son baratos y la verdad para su precio son excelentes)
Los 2 "defectos" que pudiera mencionar son:
Aun que se ven resistentes, no se siente que el material sea de tan buena calidad pero seguramente que si los cuidas te duraran mucho.
La funcion para "mutear" el microfono, segun he leido, termina haciendo que se descomponga el microfono por lo cual no la usare.
Por cierto, los V Moda Crossfade LP2 estan en mas de $3000 y estos ahorita estan a un super precio, realmente estoy tentado a comprar otros.
- Al ser de estilo abierto si estás jugando o escuchando música quien se siente a tu lado va a poder escuchar todo también. Esto ya lo sabía porque es el estilo de los audífonos, solo lo comento por si alguien considera esto como algo negativo; sin embargo, precisamente este feature hace que tenga una sonoridad más “real”. Mucha gente piensa que los ‘cerrados’ te brindan una mejor experiencia pero no, el sonido se siente algo artificial.
Para probar audio recomiendo que escuchen el 2do mov de la 7a sinfonía de Beethoven (al menos la mitad).
To be clear, this is fine, since they were designed primarily to be a gaming & communication headset, but it would have been nice to hear a bit more mids and crispy highs when listening to music while playing games. Not sure why Amazon is asking about noise cancellation, as these headphones don't offer this feature.
