USB only, noise cancelling microphone, open acoustic gaming headset from Sennheiser. It took me a while to adjust to these, but once I understood the sound, I really started to appreciate it. I still think the bass is a bit low, but it’s clean and well contained. Great quality, and should be awesome for the people who appreciate this kind of sound.

But at the moment, they seem highly priced, so prepare your wallet!

Also, like most headsets, the mic is a bit quiet, read on below…

HOW TO FIX THE QUIET MIC PROBLEM:

Instructions are from here on Reddit: Click here

1. Dowload Equalizer APO here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/equalizerapo/files/0.9.2/EqualizerAPO64-0.9.2.exe/download?use_mirror=netix&download=&failedmirror=kent.dl.sourceforge.net

2. Install

3. In the installation folder you will find a program called “Configurator”. Open it

4. You will see two tabs. Playback devices and Capture devices. Find your headset in the capture tab and check the little box then press Ok. It will ask you to restart and do it.

5. After restarting go to the Equalizer directory again and in the file “config” you will find a text file called “config”. Open it and in this file you can change the level of the devices you ticked in the configurator program.


Zy: So that’s what I did, and my config.txt now has this in it:

Device: Sennheiser Communication Audio Headset Earphone {087036d0-ea10-4038-a06b-da7e64abdbb4}
Preamp: 0 dB
;
Device: Sennheiser Communication Audio Headset Microphone {fc28406d-0e85-4e0c-8140-9c83ae7a440f}
Preamp: 14 dB

You can raise that last 14 if it’s still too quiet.
