Sennheiser GSP 600 Review

Conclusion

Its nice to see that Sennheiser has stuck to their guns and not opted to go all out on things that some would find unnecessary. However, an argument could be made that Sennheiser is not doing enough to keep up with modern trends. In reality, additions like RGB may look nice on a headset, but it does nothing to improve actual perceivable quality. Sennheiser has noted this and invested their money into the areas that matter the most, this is evident as soon as you try the headset for the first time.

For performance, we noted that other well-known brands in the audio division are choosing to utilise new audio technologies whereas Sennheiser doesn't appear to have brought anything definitively new to the table. Is this important? In the GSP 600s case, we would say not, and although they may appear too analogue, the GSP 600 make up for it with an audio performance that is smooth, rich and detailed. This high-tier delivery makes them very enjoyable for music, movies and great for gaming. The audio performance is then enhanced upon by how the headset looks and feels. The GSP 600 has a style that will likely divide opinion, but we like the rugged, almost industrial approach that Sennheiser has taken. The build is solid, with the GSP 600 being mainly constructed from high-grade plastics and metal in areas that need it the most. This, when combined together, makes them feel really robust. The big trade-off though is weight, and they could be potentially too heavy for some users. The broadcast quality mic used also delivers a great performance with good levels of detail and clarity. The GSP 600 also offer solid levels of noise isolation which in some situations is ideal and others could pose an issue.

As a whole the Sennheiser GSP 600 offers a great full rounded package for the price, that price may be premium, but the headset does deliver on that with the outright performance on offer. The only thing to really be mindful of is the weight, but if you can live with that, the GSP 600 does not disappoint.


The Sennheiser GSP 600 are unquestionably premium with a price tag to match, and although they may be a bit light on features for some, they really deliver where it counts.
