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.
