Knowledgeable gamers demand extra high-quality gear to enhance their experience, and the SEnnheiser PC 350 arrives to fulfill those requirements. A closed back earcup construction provides amazing detail and clarity to the overall sound, while providing a good amount of environmental isolation from intrusive ambient room sounds. The PC 350 are not a noise cancelling headset, but the -10dB to -15dB isolation specs creates an experience that will literally put you deep into your own gaming world. The headband design offers plenty of adjustment and should be able to handle even the biggest melon on king-size gamers. The headphone earpads are comfy and soft, but some may be turned off by the cheaper pleather-style material. The mic offers of manuverabilty and can swing up and out of the way when you don't feel talkative. A convenient volume control wheel and mic mute switch are located a few feet down the cord, easily within reach at a moment's notice.
The sound of the Sennheiser PC 350 gaming headphone is very detailed and clean. Highs are precise and accurate. Midrange seems a bit recessed, but still provides a nicely even-keeled, non-jagged tonality. The bass is the only thing that's perhaps slightly missing, but this may not necessarily be a bad thing. Some gamers prefer a tightly controlled bass response since it's typically less distracting during those more chaotic, explosive gaming moments. While other gamers insist bass is absolutely necessary for the mind-blowing audio found in some games. The PC 350 bass does fall on the lean side of the equation; however, it remains fairly tight and decently textured. If you plan to listen to music as well as game with these cans, be prepared for a slightly lackluster concert experience. The build quality of the Sennheiser PC 350 appears durable, yet there are a few suspect areas with mucho plastic connections. For such a high-quality headphone, it just feels a bit light when in hand. However, Sennheiser backs up all headphones they make with a reliable 2-year manufacturer's warranty so you should not have any worries. In the end, it's really hard to beat the PC 350 feature set for the price. A full-size, closed-back gaming headset that provides this kind of sonic performance for less than $200 is certainly worthy of any hardcore gamer addict wanting top gaming headphones to beat the stuffing out of lowly rivals using cheap-o gaming cans.
