A little history before we get to my promised Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx review… About two years ago I started my foray into the smartphone world with the HTC Droid Incredible. Though initially hesitant, I was quickly won over by internet access that moved with me, great integration with the Google products I already used[…]
UPDATE: My Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx Review is Live! I’m in the process of writing a Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX Review – Stay Tuned! My wife and I celebrated Valentine’s Day early this year and somehow ended up walking through our local mall at the end of the night. As a result, we walked by[…]
Sennheiser PC330 G4ME Headset Review
As promised, my Sennheiser PC330 G4ME Headset review from the discriminating, but subjective perspective of both a gamer and a tech enthusiast. Established in 1945 in Wedemark, Germany, Sennheiser is a world leader in microphone technology, headphone transducer technology, and in the development of active noise-cancellation. Having heard many great things about the Sennheiser brand, I was quite excited to put the PC330 headset through the paces and see if it lived up to my expectations. At $169 MSRP, Sennheiser is marketing the PC330 G4ME towards value-conscious gamers looking to “take it to the next level”, falling at the lower range of their “pro gaming” headsets next to the PC333D($239), PC350($229) and PC360($299).
The DJ-inspired PC 330 G4ME is an all-in-one LAN party wonder. Designed for total immersion and intense gaming action, this headset not only looks great, it’s also packed with practical features. The closed acoustics keep you focused on the win but you can easily stay in touch with your teammates, too – simply by swinging up the DJ Hinge ear cup.
Another clever feature of the PC 330 is the volume control, which Sennheiser Communications has conveniently integrated directly in the right ear cup. It’s a vast improvement on the standard in-line control and cuts out that annoying fumbling around for wires in the middle of a game or Skype session.
Ready for a break? Mute the microphone by raising the boom and relax to music or videos in great Sennheiser sound.
I recently got my hands(ears?) on a pair of Sennheiser’s PC330 G4ME Headsets. (Doesn’t the “G4ME” make you feel so “l33t” just by reading it?) To provide the best review possible, I felt it was my obligation to really put the PC330 through the paces: gaming, music and video, before reporting on my impression.
