Product on Review: Sennheiser GSP 670 Wireless Gaming
Street Price: £299.99 GBP / $349.95 USD / $499.995 AUD
If you're into your audio and possibly even if you're not the name Sennheiser certainly needs no introduction however their first wireless gaming headset does. Introducing the GSP 670 Wireless Gaming Headset, billed by Sennheiser as “gaming for audiophiles” and it replaces the GSP 600 as the halo product of the GSP line.
The GSP 670 follows the same design focus as the GSP 600, meaning no RGB and while ditching the wires and attempting to make cable management that little bit easier however this doesn't come without downsides, the headset is only compatible with PC & PS4 rather than all consoles however it also features Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity to enable you to connect to smart phones & tablets. While connected with Bluetooth you can get up to 20 hours battery life though this does reduce slightly to 16 hours if you opt to utilise the low-latency connection via the included USB dongle and if you do forget to charge the headset between sessions it is possible to simultaneously game & charge, or if you seriously hate wires but are in a rush, you can get 2 hours charge in a measly 7 minutes.
Sennheiser are also claiming that the GSP 670 features a best in class, broadcast-quality microphone which includes advanced noise-cancelling which Sennheiser have developed in house to ensure quality standards. The microphone is fitted on the end of a flexible boom arm and can be adjusted to suit your head shape, it also features flip to mute, meaning to mute the microphone you just lift the arm up.
We ask if Sennheiser have managed to get the audio quality we expect while they've introduced wireless functionality, read on to find out.
