Sennheiser GSP 370 Gaming Headset Review – What HAPPENED!?

Sennheiser GSP 370 Gaming Headset Review – What HAPPENED!?


good people I’m Dmitri this is the Sennheiser GSP 670 it had disappointed me in the past and I’m told
then you GSP 370 is supposed to make up for it let’s see if it does this headset has so much potential
I mean it’s Sennheiser we’re talking about they make fantastic hardware they
sound great they last forever but the software is not their strong suit as you
guys should know by now I keep all relevant headsets in my collection so
when new products come out I can do a proper comparison will do mic test and
conclude with my current wireless headset recommendation should be fun the
new cases by metal gear come in three variations newest silent neo air and neo
G to satisfy your build and visual preference with the good i/o excellent
internal layout and RGB fans included on neo G and air models check the
description to see which neo is best for you right off the bat these are a lot
more comfortable then the bulky GSP 670 the 370 has a smaller frame and less
clamping force and they still look a bit ridiculous but nowhere near the ugly fit
of the 600 series we have a nice and tight seal for a great passive isolation
and the ear cups are fantastic with this velvet top layer that makes contact with
your skin and the leather body for the exterior that beautifully traps those
base hits no issues wearing these with glasses too and this is easily the most
comfortable wireless headset in my collection plus I appreciate the dark
tones color wise it’s a good-looking pair these are not Bluetooth unlike the
GSP 670 the wireless connection is handled by the USB dongle that is
labeled on their side for clarification and the little tip you can always stash
the USB inside the ear cup for storage everything is plastic the way it should
be to keep the weight down with insane flexibility of the frame and robust size
extensions and as usual the massive boom mic is non removable but is muted when
in the upright position and the volume wheel on the right now has these soft
tactile steps that move in two percent increments and the actual volume
adjustment is not immediate it catches up in a few seconds you charge the spare
with the micro USB at the bottom kind of sucks that they still have not moved to
type C yet and the power button is the dinky s slider that I’ve seen that
doesn’t even deserve to be in such a premium body the reason why I initially
consider this to be my new favorite wireless headset is because
Comfort battery life and sound quality so comfort wise their fantastic battery
life has impressed me the most because they rate it for a hundred hours and I
use them for a week extensively over 70 hours of usage minimum and only then I
dropped to the 20% low battery beep so as advertised these will last you for a
long time and as for sound they are pretty powerful I run these between 60
and 80% volume so there’s a bit of headroom left in terms of power output
they are tuned to sound a bit more open so the sound stage is not super
claustrophobic and closed off like you would find like on the course Center
virtual so for example the detailed resolution is nowhere near what I would
get with a wired pair like my HD 58X but the sound clarity here is more
pleasant to my ears it’s smoother than the HyperX cloud flight the G935 and
the virtuoso combined the trouble is smooth nice roll-off typical Sennheiser
fashion with nice bass trapping in there as well that doesn’t overpower
frequencies and the main thing is you can tell this a wireless headset because
the clarity and the resolution of the detail that you would normally find on
the wired pair is not exactly on the level but it’s pretty satisfactory I
will say the layering is so much better with a 370 versus the Corsair virtuoso
and the cloud flight but they do sound pretty comparable to the 935 from
Logitech and I really like that sound signature this was a very good pair for
csgo and quake listening to all my regular audio cues for awareness so
everything in that sense was well delivered and environmental ambience and
ready to and fall in order perfectly fine no complaints with the driver
performance and this is where we stopped the hype train and talked about all the
issues the microphone and the software and this is where the microphone sounds
like really poor performance for the price point $499 especially coming from
some Heiser furthermore the site own feature is disabled unlike it was fully
enabled and working properly on the GSP 670 and the noise cancellation slider is
also grayed out so you cannot even adjust the newest cancellation
properties so much for the noise canceling broadcast quality microphone
mm-hmm this is unacceptable for my ears let me know if you agree for comparison
here’s a corsair virtuoso headset also wireless pair of course and this one to
me just sounds slightly better notice compressed and note is like nasally it’s
a bit more clarity in there it doesn’t have as much base as the Sun hazard pair
but I think this is a better sounding microphone this with the HyperX cloud
flight sounds like ouch it’s an embarrassing quality not as bad as the
GSP 370 but this thing is half price so you decide just for reference here’s a
proper quality microphone the pc3 7x also some Heiser prayer this is a wired
one and I’m running it through the sound blaster x3 that has a mic input
fantastic quality over here and this is what you are up against in terms of
sound quality on the wireless side versus a proper wired one and now here’s
an embarrassing fact as I plugged in the GSP 670 into my machine to record a mic
sound test in comparison to the 370 my machine crashed and this thing is not
being recognized by the dongle I have not used this headset since the review
you can watch that video and hear the microphone test versus others but the
Sennheiser gaming suite software man they really have to do something with it
unfortunately I’ve also experienced many other issues with the GSP 370 on my main
editing and the threadRipper system like crackles coming through the headset
when the dongle is plugged into the front USB port on the case when I plug
the dongle into the motherboard the crackles become less frequent but
they’re still present the headset will also not wake up after i reboot the
system and I have to replug the dongle every single time which does not happen
on any of my intima Sheen’s so why but I will say the microphone did stop working
while I was in game twice everything else was working perfectly fine I could
hear my audio but my microphone just stopped picking up my audio until I
replugged the USB dongle and at one point audio got fully distorted which is
actually something that I’ve experienced with the GSP 670 really early on before
firmware updates before like you know it was fully public and stuff it’s kind of
strange to hear that and you guessed it it was all resolved when I
we plugged the USB dongle and so the entire experience with the 370’s kind of
rise and fall the software and all of its issues killed the competitive nature
of this pair despite then being super comfortable and then sounding very good
for wireless pair but to be honest no headset should cause this much
frustration as I have experienced both on the GSP 670 and the 370 now and Sennheiser I’m sure they’re working on upgrading the Sennheiser driver’s suite
software but it was also a big weak point for the previous wireless headset
right now my wireless recommendation still stands with the HyperX cloud
flight even though the microphone sounds like trash and they don’t sound as good
let me tell you that like the GSP 370 or the 670 these are extremely comfortable
I’ve never encountered any sort of issues in terms of drivers and the
microphone not working the audio distorting it’s shutting down my system
it’s not working with the Vinci resolve like the issues that arise with
something like that are just unexpected from the Sun higher side which is why
the clouds flight still is my wireless recommendation thanks much for watching

  1. Great review Dmirty! OOf that mic is wow agree they do need to figure out their software terrible.. I am not a fan of the Corsair headphones I am not a fan of the sound quality of the corsair feels like it is in a tin can.

  2. Was a complete review my friend, however, currently reviewing a pair myself and while I'll be reporting largely the same stuff, I've come up with some interesting findings surrounding the mic quality which, while doesn't excuse Sennheisers software team, has proven to me that the mic quality is actually quite good. That being said, the 370 is the best wireless pair I've ever tested.

  3. Finally good review, not like sponsored one GSP670 review and wasted money on my side because of hype train and hope of good sound – King is only one – G935

  4. Looks like Sennheiser really needs to rework their wireless audio game, especially for their mics, because the Virtuoso smoked the 370’s in this quick comparison!

  5. Surprised by the Corsair mic sound … might actually have to get a set. When I was doing headset reviews (I gave up, got repetitive) the mic was the biggest downfall on most. The Razer ManO'War was the only headset mic I really liked but the headband was made to break. So … blah.

    Main headset for me is the SteelSeries Arctis Pro because they have the best balance of all the features I want.

    Good review!

  6. I’ve been looking for headphones that will fit the sound profile I’m looking for. I’m been using the jbl synchros S700 for 6 years now and nothing sounds better to me after buying and returning headphones over and over for the last 2 weeks.

  7. So his wireless rec is the hyperx cloud, but the mic is okay… Then you realized that he has a modmic base mount…

  8. It seems Sennheiser is doing down hill. I had some mini foldable over ear banded headphones from like 10 years ago. They sounded amazing. But through age, they fell apart. So I thought "I'll get a replacement" but no, they don't sell anything like them anymore. Gave in and got some that are twice the size, not as nice build quality/materials, and sound WORSE. No, it's not my hearing, I swapped out immediately, and could notice the difference. I'd have kept the old ones and returned the new ones, if it were not for the fact the old ones would not hold together much longer. 😛

    I'll probably stick to Sony, who IMO are at least consistent quality/results.

  9. You might’ve just saved me a bunch of money. The microphone quality is just complete shit honestly. I might just get a condenser microphone to talk on Discord amd in games instead of headset microphones.

  10. I love my GSP301s. My ears are large which help, but I also got them used for 50 bucks, normally over 100, and i love Senheissers almost monitor esque sound.

    Reply

  11. I have seen so many reviews of wireless headsets by you guys. You should give the wireless Plantronics a go. I have the HD800. They look silly, but work very well and I think the mic is also pretty good. I wonder what you think of it.

    Reply

  12. You are forgetting the Steelseries Arctis Pro ! Its atleast the Top 3 best wireless because of the Dac and High Res audio and its metal build

    Reply

  13. holy shit that mic sound like you recorded with a dumpster fire that was put out recently by a heavy rainfall of urine. absolutely pitiful sennheiser. hd599s with a modmic is better in every single way, wireless to me is just not there yet in the audio department.

    Reply

  14. Literally no professional esports teams or pro gamers use senheiser gaming headsets so i dont even know why you review their gaming headsets

    Reply

  15. thank you very much for the reviews. very well done with the mic test. ppl overcomplicate things so much with graphs and numbers. all it took was a mashup of a one minute clip comparing all the headset mics, in contrast to reading thesis-long pages with graphs AND still not know how well it sounds cause you have no reference to these graphs if you haven't spend a bit of time with audio products and haven't established reference values for yourself

    Reply

  16. Seems like sennheiser needs to take more time to figure out wireless and software based products. It’s not something they’re really used to, and they should bring in some people from past companies maybe that could help out in that field.

    Reply

  17. Headphones + modmic, I want nothing else ever. Too many headsets broke way too fast and don't sound as good as real headphones. But if you want to spend your money for 'gaming gear' I have nothing to say.

    Reply

  18. Wow I can't believe they came out with a wireless version right after I order some Logitech wireless headsets. SMH that's so unfortunate. They were about to get my money.

    Reply

  19. do yourself a favor guys, and just stick with headsets like hyper x cloud alphas, save you the trouble of those bad softwares, and high pricetag.

  20. Waiting for that Case of the Year Vid for 2019. Should be another great year of cases, especially in the ITX form factor! 😁

    Reply

  21. This is my first and only gaming headset! I am agree with most of his feedback. The dongle thing is not my case, working perfectly, software have huge room to improve.

    Sennheiser mic shouldn’t so disappointing.

    However audio quality and battery life are what I am looking for.

    Reply

  22. What headset should I get for max £200 preferably wireless thinking the audio techincha 50x or the Corsair virtuoso maybe the hyperx cloud flight or maybe the dt990 pro thoughts??

    Reply

  23. Finally a good review 🙂 for this headset. I have them and I approve, they are awesome for battery life, sound comparing with Cloud Flight. But the software is rly bad. I will stick with them tho, the battery life is a yes for me.

    Reply

  24. AMD Threadripper machines have a myriad of issues, from sound to rendering crashes etc….doesn't help to have all those extra cores and threads, if the machine crashes all the time. When my friend switched to an Intel processor (both machines being built by Origin), the crashes literally just went away……..

    Reply

  25. Wasn't the reason why headset mics sound so poor is because it's job is to make just the voice clear above anything else?

    That's what all call center headsets sound like though. Having a studio quality mic has the tendency to capture more than just the one talking…

    Reply

  26. I bought a razer nari ultimate and the setup can be convoluted and it battles with Discord. The mic picks up the headphones.

    Reply

  27. Just got a pair of Sennheiser PC37X, I was a bit disappointed when I heard I had to buy a sennheiser specific audio splitter just so I could plug it into my laptop/phone/and ps4 controller. Great headset otherwise though.

    Reply

  28. This issue with the corsair, is while the mic is great everything else is meh and the sound is kinda bad.

    Reply

  29. Hey Dmitry as for the comparison of wireless mics I decided to go with cloud flight and attach pop filter to its microphone.

    Reply

  30. Honestly when you can get the MH 752 for 80 buck, I truely can´t understand how people still buy these expensive crappy cans with shitty mics.

    Reply

  31. Back in 2015, purchased a Sennheiser 333D headset factory sealed, the mic arm's wire was broken, the padding's glue fell off, the ear paddings ripped off, and the left ear speaker blew out, even tho i have an expensive 2 desk setup with tons of electronics that i use gingerly in mint quality condition so they last forever, and yet this Sennheiser headset was garbage on unboxing, and i didnt notice until about 2 months later… One positive the sound is amazing!
    Really fucking upset and disapointed! I wanted a Sennheiser for years and when i finally bought one it was poor quality.

    Reply

  32. I bought the virtuoso recently and yea the mic is nice and sound is ok. But damn, when I switch to 7.1 in iCue it sounds unbearable bad and the wearing comfort is the worst I've had on a headset so far. I need to adjust that thing like every 10 minutes because it starts to get annoying/painful where the top rests on my head. I hoped the GSP might be a better option and to return my virtuoso, but damn the mic sounds bad.

    Reply

  33. Hopefully you read this but to let you know, I bought the 370 shortly after release. After a bit, the mic stopped working. I noticed it only worked when I removed the dongle and put it back in. I contacted Sennheiser about it and this was their response:

    "I took this case to our engineering team, and apparently this problem has to do with a bug in the current software. Many people have this problem, and we're working on a solution right now. We will release an update that will fix this problem in the following weeks.

    Until then, you're going to have to replug your dongle when starting your computer. Again, I'm sorry and we're working hard to release this update. "

    How does something like this not get caught before releasing the product? This is my second Sennheiser headset and my first one also had issues. I bought this one because I wanted to give them another chance and the battery life is incredible. Disappointing. Anyway I figured I would pass along the info.

  34. I took two sets back. The crackles from left audio was unbearable. Constant drop outs and when playing RDR2 the sound constantly became crackly with a restart fixing it. The second set did the same also but it would not charge fully and kept disconnecting from dongle. Gave up and went with the arctis wireless pro and been problem free so far for months. Great vid man

  35. And I was hoping to upgrade from my hyperx flight. Well atleast i now know i can spend my 200 on something else. Ty Dimitri👌🏻

  36. Hey! I’ve been thinking on buying the Sennheiser GSP 300 and wanted to know if it’s worth it? I’ll mainly use it for FPS, so I think it’s better to get a closed-back design for better sound isolation..
    If there’s any comment/suggestion let me know!

    Reply

  37. Do you need a External/Internal Soundcard for GSP370 like other Sennheiser models? Comparing to other brands like Steelseries/Logitech. Where you get DTS surround and Dolby atmos etc. just using the Software without a superb Soundcard.
    I do like to use it with my Asus Z390-F.

  38. I bought this headseat and im very satisfied by this headset no connectivity problem for me its comfortable and the sound is sooooooooooo gooood

  39. Hey bro,
    what about trying the Turtle Beach Elite Atlas Aero. I got a pair recently and the only thing that i don't like is the Turtle Beach Control Studio since i had to reinstall for a reason i don't remember and then my direct sidetone control "Variable Mic Monitoring" didn't work anoymore. The sidetone can still be adjusted through the Windows sound settings though. The mic is one of the best mics i've heard in a really long time and for 150€ as an wireless headset it's a pretty good bang for the buck.
    If you got no time for it on your schedule no worries and keep up the good content since i like your reviews a lot. 🙂
    Cheers

  40. I have a gsp 370 headset, and IMHO, they're NOT that great and definitely NOT worth the high price tag.

    Main complaint is that the microphone DOES NOT WORK ON STEAM OR GOOGLE TALK with the sennheiser software installed (who needs all those additional features in a headset to actually function anyway right? <<<< SARCASM!). I've been in contact with Sennheiser since Christmas (ya these were a gift), and I swear they don't really care about their product. They bounced me over to some tech company to deal with my headset issue!??! Hello!!!! didn't YOU (Sennheiser) MAKE these headsets?!?! Yet you can't offer tech support on it!?!?! WOW!

    Other thing My old Logitech G930 wireless headset (R.I.P.) were WAY more comfortable to wear than the Sennheiser, and Logitech's software GASP!!!! ACTUALLY WORK with the headset!!!!!! IMAGINE THAT! not to mention they were 1/3 the price. It's too bad they're not made anymore. Even the Corsair one's I bought before christmas were more comfortable than the Sennheiser one's OH! and YA! They worked with their software also….hmmm….I'm sensing a pattern here…..Software ~ working with headset. Nah, I must be wrong….NOPE I was right.

    So get Sennheiser! but don't use their software. Who needs that 7.1 surround and enhanced features anyway? You can at least brag about how expensive and well known they are, so you'll be the envy of all your friends….and really only YOU will know that they are total $300.00 worth of CRAP.

    That's my venting for one night. Did you like it? Who cares? lol

  41. I seriously, do NOT recommend this headset… The issues described at 6:05 and 6:16 , crackles and having to replug the USB dongle EVERY time you reboot your PC are real problems and unacceptable for this price point…
    Specially for someone who records using OBS, every time you reconnect the dongle, you also have to manual select audio input and microphone input.
    Sennheiser definitely disappointed me with this headset.

  42. Thanks for the review. Excellent job as usual. Big fan of Sennheiser, but not jumping with either of their wireless. Got the cloud flight on the strength of your review and love it, but had to put it aside since it just works so badly with Voice attack and as im a flight sim buff this is a show stopper. Back with my wired game zero. Anybody tried the Virtuoso with voice attack or any other wireless recommendation for VA? Would love to see voice recognition included in your headset reviews.

  43. hey! so i just got these and they worked fine but then i turned off my laptop, turned it back on and now i cant hear any audio. ive tried to reconnect it and everything but everytme i turn it on it turns off again? im not sure whats going on

    Reply

  44. Can you please run wired pairs through your motherboard? Not everyone has a high quality, dac/amp to with a mic input to run headsets through.

    Especially a simple gaming pair like the 37x. It was the same when you did the modmic 5.0 review. A lot of people get much different performance out of more common motherboard setups. So it's really inaccurate.
