Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset Review – Wired Closed Acoustic Design

Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset Review

Throughout Sennheiser’s previous generations of gaming headsets, Game Zero, Game One, and GSP 300 have gained a good reputation among many e-sports players. GSP600 inherits many advantages of the GSP 500, the biggest difference in appearance is that GSP 600 adopts a closed acoustic design.

Compared with other classic Sennheiser gaming headsets, the GSP 600 has a wider frequency response of 10Hz~30000Hz, which has a sharper low-frequency expression; and a smaller impedance of 28Ω, which is more compatible with low-power devices, such as Xbox One and the PlayStation series.

Now, let’s take a disassembly and a deep close look at this masterpiece from the acoustic giant Sennheiser.

Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset Cables

The Sennheiser GSP 600 comes standard with two detachable 3.5mm cables with different interfaces. The cable interface is under the left earphone, and the damping of the interface is relatively moderate. Compatible with current game consoles, such as PCs, Macs, PS4, PS5, and Xbox One.


Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset Headband

Considering that the head beam structure of previous gaming headsets tends to cause excessive pressure during long-term wearing, the head beam design of the Sennheiser GSP 600 adopts a new metal component system combined with a new adjustable headband.

The buckle on the head beam can be adjusted left and right according to the player’s preference, so as to choose the comfortable pressure on the head.


Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset MIC

A noise-canceling microphone is designed on the left side of the headphone. It is worth mentioning that this microphone comes with a switch. By default, the MIC will not receive any audio signals. When twisting it down, it automatically switches to recording mode. During the twisting process, a slight “click” will be heard as a reminder of the transition between the two states.

Sennheiser GSP 600’s oval-shaped artificial leather memory foam earmuffs not only provide a more stable wearing experience, but also have the advantage of being more comfortable and non-sticky for long-term wearing.


Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming Headset Audio Speaker

Sennheiser GSP 600 audio speakers integrate high-quality 50mm neodymium magnetic units and titanium diaphragms. The characteristics of the titanium diaphragm are fast heat conduction, high specific elastic rate, and good moisture resistance, followed by small damping. But with an increase in peak and valley of the frequency response curve, and slightly worse transient response.
