Sennheiser PC 310 Headset | Review

Comments Off on Sennheiser PC 310 Headset | Review 2503

Is the Sennheiser PC 310 a decent gaming headset for hobbyists? That is the question I am going to answer in today’s review.

I have used several hobby-priced headsets before, but the style of this one was different to what I have encountered. Unlike most, the cups don’t go over your ears, but instead go on them like an open hand does when you put it on your ear. This leads to discomfort being produced from having your ear flattened against your head. The plus side to using this design is that it allows air to get to your ears and keep them cool, which can be a problem with other headsets. It is also useful if you are in a environment where you need to be able to hear the outside world.

As you would expect from Sennheiser, the sound quality is great. This is hardly surprising considering their reputation in the audio industry. I would say that most games would benefit from the sound it offers, but as someone who plays Arma 2, a military simulation game, it doesn’t have surround sound support.

What about the microphone quality?

From talking to my friends on Skype, they have said that the noise-cancelling performs well when there isn’t anyone in the same room. However, if someone is shouting downstairs or is talking in close proximity, it can be heard. This isn’t much of a problem because you are unlikely to have anyone in the same room while you are concentrating on blowing the heads off zombies in Call of Duty, are you?

Overall, I believe it will work well in a sociable environment when gaming with your friends in the same room, but can also be used when in a different location by yourself.
