Although visually quite different to other headphone products in the Sennheiser catalogue, the renown audio-maker brings all of its expertise to its new Sennheiser GSP 500 gaming headset. With an open acoustic design, and exceptional frequency response and balance, Sennheiser is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the gaming audio space.
Sennheiser’s new GSP 500 headset is a premium gaming product from the renown and rightfully lauded maker of all-things audio. Featuring an Open Acoustic design – or open-air - in a nutshell this means that by design the GSP 500s are not noise-cancelling nor Closed to the point where no sound bleeds out into the surrounding air space. So then, what’s the benefit of such a design? Well this is where we enter audiophile territory of the “hey man, vinyl sounds so much warmer and better than digital”. In that bass response and the overall sound of an open-design is warmer, more natural, and less inclined to sound compressed or overly harsh. Plus, it allows for better air-flow making them more comfortable to wear, by design, for extended periods.
