7 Gedanken zu “game zero headset

  1. I just wanted to take the time to say this product is outdated the new G4ME Zero Cans on the Sennheiser site are 50 ohm not the 150 ohm shown here you no longer need an amp to push these cans, This was also confirmed with an email to Sennheiser Shown Below. Now Amazon needs to get the new Zeros, they want $250 on the Sennheiser site i’ll just wait for the updated Zero’s to hit Amazon.New reply for the ticket #TS100053799Yes the G4ME ZERO latest versions are now down to 50 ohms therefore bypassing the need of an amp.

  2. These are great headphones if you work from a bit of a noisy home or office and have put up with bad headsets long enough.I am a busy dad who works in a home office. We have kids playing and yelling, practicing piano, running in and out of the house. After using the very lightweight and cool Plantronics Encore H101N for a decade, I decided I wanted something better for listen to music and edit audio and video while cutting down on the household background noise. These headphones have been perfect for that. It’s also hand to flip up my mic to auto-mute it when my wife or kid come in to talk to me, they can also tell when it’s up that it’s safe to talk. It makes sneaking in lunch while listening to a boring conference call easier and safer – no more questioning whether my mute is on or not. I may go back and use my Plantronics during warmer weather, but fall, fall, and spring will find me wearing my GAME ZEROs.I bought these and the GAME ONEs to compare them and ended up keeping these GAME ZEROs. I’ll admit the GO open back headphones sound a bit better, especially with the the Dolby 7.1 enabled through the USB dongle, but that dongle is available for purchase seperately. Sound stage is on the GAME ONEs is amazing, but these are pretty good. I’m not a heavy gamer but I’m happy in these. If I was a fanatic and had a smaller head, I’d keep the GOs. My wife likes the GOs as they are cooler and she can hear what the kids are up to better than the isolation of the GAME ZEROs when shes working. My ears get a little warm in the GZs, but I just turn down the heat 2 degrees and I’m fine. Works great in winter. The mic is great for Skype or other voice calling, and I am on monsterously long VOIP calls – sometimes 6-8 hours. The GAME ZEROS are never uncomfortable even for that length of time. I recommend a small phone wind screen over the microphone to cut down on popping noises from splosives. I really appreciate a removable cable that enables me to listen to my iOS devices.. it works great. It’s missing the 3-button control, but it does have a volume dial on the right ear cup and also the flip up mic mute. I can live with that. These are better than the GOs for larger dad-size heads, or if you just like super comfy cans. The GOs cause head pain after wearing for 1-2 hours. I do prefer the velour ear cup fabric over the hotter ‚leather‘ of the GZ, but Sennheiser tech support explained the ‚leather‘ is necessary for sound isolation. I agree with this. If you really want the velour cups you can order them seperately as they’re interchangeable between models.. The auto-mute when you flip up the mic is perfect for long conference calls when you need to be sure the mic is off to talk to someone in the room with you or eat lunch. No more wondering if the mute is really on. The noise cancelling feature works fine, minimizing background sounds, but not eliminating them completely.I bought these as the same time as the GAME ZEROs and decided to keep the them and return GAME ONEs for the following reasons: 1 – The GZs fold flat 2 – The GZs have removable cable, including a shorter IOS compatible cable 3 – The GZ ear cups are bigger. Yuge! They feel like Cadillacs on your head. Heavenly. The GZs are more comfortable overall, except for heat. 4 – Closed backs. Audio is actually better on the GO, but I can do with a little less spacial fidelity when I need to get work done or listen to a conference call while my daughter practices piano in the adjacent room.I’m a busy dad who works remotely from home.If you have a fully size manly head and can turn the heat down a little so your ears don’t overhead and work in a busier home or office, go with the GAME ZEROs.If you’re wondering if $200 is too much for a good headset, wonder no more. It is. You deserve them. It’s a small favor you deserve for being chained to a desk all day. The only other headset that is more comfortable is the Bose QC-25. That’s mainly because they are lighter and have better digital audio processing. But they cost $100 more, require a batter to get the better sound, and frankly the Sennheiser mic is better due to its position, size, and noise cancelling design. If you want‘ super lightweight and need noise cancellation, get the Bose. If you can live with the slightly more weight, better mic, and sure muting, get the Sennheiser Game Zero.

  3. Sennheiser quality at a Sennheiser price… I like these a lot. I only wish I could find a sound card with a decent sidetone mixer. You can’t hear yourself talk… (Not the fault of the headset. They work perfectly) I like the flip up mute although I sometimes forget it is up and talk to myself for a min or two… Comfortable soft ear cups. Not too hot but they are leather and they are on your skin. Construction is solid, but I would still treat them with respect. I have not hand any issues with screws coming loose as others have reported. The swivels make it fit well but one handed donning is more challenging, not impossible… sound quality is superb. I don’t really notice any emphasis in the response. It seems even across the audio spectrum. (not super bassy or tinny). I use for gaming and audio. They work well in my 3D games with respectable imaging, I think that has more to do with the sound card / processor. Don’t get these if you don’t like people sneaking up on you… They do a decent job of blocking out the surrounding sounds. I want a set of Game One’s too so I can play and hear people around me…

  4. Admittedly my only basis for comparison is a pair of Turtle Beach headphones I bought for over $100, which didn’t particularly wow me, and they weren’t very comfortable and were clunky. I also dont often play with headphones as I’ve got a pretty decent home stereo set up that I enjoy.I picked these up after chatting with one of the Steel Series staff (I live in their hq city) and was impressed. For the price point they are spectacular headphones, and their fit and finish is so much better than Razor or Turtlebeach. The small touches of this product, like the cool art stickers that come in the box ( i think those were made by a local artist!), and the minimalist and clean feel of the instructions make this set of headphones feel like it was made for the professional gamer and the the discerning „adult“ customer. The finish of the headphones themselves is clean, the retractable, inset microphone is fantastic, and having all the controlls On then headphones along with the raised mute button are genius! Also love that I can use them for my PS4, my XBone, OR for casual listening on my iPhone.As for sound quality, music sounds fantastic. Crisp sound and heavy thump when appropriate without being over bearing. I’ve only been playing Rainbow Six Siege with them so far, but the ability to tell where enemies are bases on hearing has been game changing.

  5. Arctis 7 ReviewI’ve been a full time gamer for at least 10 years; really getting involved in online play and buying at least 2 games a month since the PS3 launched. In that amount of time I’ve worked my way through a seriously concerning number of different headsets, in a constant pursuit to find the best gaming headset for solo and cooperative play. I’ve traversed different brands from the well-known to the rather sketchy and if there’s one thing I’ve come to a conclusion on it’s that we as gamers are getting screwed over. Nonetheless this hasn’t stopped me from trying a plethora of different headsets which brings me to the SteelSeries Arctis 7’s.Arctis is a new line from SteelSeries laid out with three different products, the 3, 5 and 7. What I tested was the 7, the lag free wireless headset designed with pro gamers in mind. In this review I’ll be covering what I feel to be the four major components of a headset: comfort, sound, microphone, functionality and aesthetics as a nice segue. But first let’s start with a little information about what steelseries is trying to accomplish.They’re looking to make waves in the gaming headset market by offering high quality, no gimmick pieces for the average and above gamer. This includes trying to achieve a high functioning microphone, top notch speakers and an unobtrusive, mature look and feel. I have to say that my time with the Arctis 7’s hits all of these very well – depending on what you’re planning on using them for.I purchased the black arctis 7’s and upon taking it out of the sports like box I was greeted with a very classy, clean headset that I instantly felt like I could wear outside without getting weird looks. They almost have a sort of professionalism to them that is rare in gaming headsets; substituting flashy lights, logos and shiny plastics for a simplistic design that is appealing to a more mature crowd. Taking them out of the box I immediately noticed they have a satisfyingly practical weight to them. They felt sturdy and not overwhelmingly heavy, something I really wanted to wear on my head. With no telescoping or extending core parts (save for the microphone) I could tell they could take a beating – not that I would ever want to give these beauties such terrible treatment.Comfort: 8/10As far as comfort goes I must give full disclosure that this is my first true suspension headset. It took a few tries to get the band adjusted to the proper tightness to fit my head but after a few trial gaming sessions I believe I found the best adjustment. Typically, headsets fit well on my head and conform nicely to my ears, the 7’s find some sort of middle ground. The headband is fantastic – I forget it’s even there. The ear cups on the other hand suffer from a slight vice grip. I have a pretty small head and usually this doesn’t bother me, and I did find that making some adjustments to the headband helped this, but it was still noticeable. I found that tightening the headband, therefore bringing the ear cups high up on my head to the point where they pushed up on my ear lobes helped with the discomfort. I did experience a headache from the first use but not nearly the point that other headsets have given me in the past and the later adjustments I made did not cause any further headaches to arise, though I could still feel the gripping during extended sessions. The ear cups are also somewhat shallow, to the point where after long gaming sessions the tops and backs of my ears would become pressurized to pain and require breaks from wearing the headset if the headset were not adjusted properly or would shift during wear.That being said it looks like steelseries have been the ones to break through the mold with their airweave ear cushions. These things are magic: they allow for a near perfect balance of noise filtering to comfort, something that pleather or other materials haven’t even come close to. After a steady 5 hour session of constant wear I found that my ears did get a little hot but they stayed completely dry, showing no signs of swamp ear or any issues with suctioning them off for so long.For constant wear these will last longer than most headsets on the market. The vicelike nature of the cups will hold you back from extremely long sessions but the airweave cushions and headband are a compromise you can make if you get the perfect adjustment for your head.Sound: 9/10In my haste to try the 7’s out I started using them without first plugging them into my PC, as I am primarily a PS4 gamer. This was a mistake. There is a crucial update for the headset that dramatically improves the sound quality and volume in general – so make sure to do that first before anything. Post update I found that they still sounded flat, rather empty. It wasn’t until I began to mess with steelseries’ engine software that allows you to play with equalizer settings that I found the true capabilities of the 7’s. Their dynamic range and flexibility is impressive to say the least and the software comes with preloaded presents that help you fine tune exactly what you’re looking for. Keep in mind that this software is only available on a computer, however whatever sound settings you setup for your 7’s they will carry over to your console – a necessary feature. The 7’s do not have the deep bass that you’d find in something like a beats – and that’s a good thing. Gamers don’t need the dirty heavy bass and it’s overhyped enough as it is. The sound is crisp, clear and well positioned within the ear cups. After spending a quality amount of testing time I was able to achieve the exact balance I wanted for games – although this was difficult considering the games I’m currently playing are on PS4, requiring me to do some tedious shifting back and forth in order to test/adjust/retest. However once I completed this I was more than satisfied with the sound quality of the 7’s; you could make out every small ambience and all of the deep immersion effects in very impressive quality and clarity. I also tested the headset via aux in from my phone while the headset was off. I was not expecting the near perfect balance and top sound quality while the headset was off, but it was there in full force! I also tested a line in to the wireless transmitter and was happy to hear there was no drop in quality during that experience. However you are not able to balance/offset the regular game sound to the line in sound from the headset, this must be done on the device you’re plugging into the transmitter. When connected to a computer you’re given the options for DTS X 7.1 surround sound as well as dynamic range compression which are both a necessary luxury in this age of headsets, and yet you don’t often see them in this price range.Microphone: 7/10If you’re wondering what the mic sounds like on the arctis 7’s, wonder no more because this entire review was recorded using it. I personally find the mic to be pretty clear, albeit slightly flat and a little “tin-y”, not to mention soft. Compared to much of the competition though it is still one of the better microphones on the market. Steelseries uses a bidirectional microphone which means it picks up your voice on the inside, and everything else on the outside with an effort to filter out all of that extra noise.The mic boom is a clever little thing that retracts easily into the headset and can be used while fully retracted (though I do not recommend it). I love how the microphone is almost completely hidden when you don’t want to use it, and you won’t end up losing it like those removable mic headsets. The boom is flexible and mostly sturdy but it does have some elasticity to it, making your finer adjustments take some force to keep it in place. The mic also has a very clever addition in the form of a small, soft red light to let you know when your headset is muted. This may in fact be one of the best additions to a headset I’ve seen in a long time, as simple as it is. When connected to a computer you get the option to enable mic sidetone, the ability to hear yourself through the headset as you speak. This a welcome addition is another one of those small things that make this $150 headset stand out from others in its price range.Functionality: 6/10Let’s first talk about general usage of the Arctis 7s. The buttons and sliders are pretty easy to find and use despite their relatively small size. Your total volume is on the left cup, and game/chat mixer on the right. You’ve also got an on/off button that upon being held for 3 seconds will either turn the headset… on or … well off. You get beeps that will move up the scale or down, depending on if you’re turning it on or off. The mic mute button is an oval that requires quite a bit of travel distance to activate it; those with larger fingers might find the size and necessary force needed to push the button beyond the cup casing annoying, but they shouldn’t have any issues once they get used to it.The headband is easy to adjust and despite the appearance that the subtle Velcro won’t hold I never once had an issue with it. As mentioned earlier the 7s have a retractable microphone which moves in and out of the left ear cup with just the right amount of resistance. Using the 7s is easy enough as all you need to do is plug the wireless transmitter into your PC/console and it pretty much works instantly. You’ll have to either coil up, run or hide a lot of the cable for the transmitter though because it is quite lengthy – perhaps due to the option for audio in/out via 3.5mm jack.It’s what you decide to use your 7’s with that really affects your experience. On PC everything works extremely well. All you need to do is download the steelseries engine (which you should do to update your headset first and foremost anyway) and you’re good to go. You can customize your listening experience, turn on mic monitoring, surround sound, dynamic range compression, and even sync up different profiles to different applications! You can listen to the changes you make to your audio profiles live as you change them so you can perfectly fit each game to a certain equilibration. Your PC will detect the headset audio out as two different sources, one for game audio and one for chat audio, making balancing between game/chat lobbies extremely easy on the headset. Unfortunately, you lose about all of this when trying to use the 7’s on console. Although steelseries advertises this as a gaming headset for PC/console, they really mean PC. That’s either a result of very good or very bad marketing because I found that while using it on PS4 the experience was vastly different than on PC. While the last audio preset I loaded onto my headset did carry over to console use, as it should, I no longer had mic monitoring or surround sound. My mic quality noticeably dropped and I was no longer able to balance game and chat audio, literally making the right slider useless. This is in part due to Sony’s structuring of the PS4 to promote only sony headsets but there have been plenty of other headsets that get around this via optical cable – yes it’s not perfect but it is an option that should be given for those of us who game on consoles. I also found that while the wireless transmitter was plugged into my PS4, every time I brought it back from rest or off it would default to using the headset as the output source, even when the headset was off. I tried messing around with plugging the headset into the controller, but that just seemed to turn the 7’s off and use them in mono mode – an even more limited functionality and quality setting.The headset’s ear cups do rotate down to lie flat on your chest, but this is seemingly mute as the suspension headband will most likely bring the ear cups tight to your neck – best to just take the headset off. I will say that one ear headset usage – like I do when I’m trying to talk to my wife – works well because of this rotation however.Summary:For $150 Steelseries’ Arctis 7 is an incredible headset. It has a beautifully professional looking design that makes you WANT to wear it. The suspension headband is extremely comfortable and the ear cup material is God-like. The accompanying software is easy to use and brings out the true value of the Arctis 7, which makes it that much more unfortunate that consoles get the shaft with this piece of hardware. The lack of game/chat balancing on the headset along with the removal of many key features forces me – as a primary console gamer – to send this headset back. Nonetheless I feel spoiled by the clever mic design, although the quality could be improved, as well as the well balanced and enriched audio it can produce. While it took some tweaking I was very satisfied by the sound quality the S1 drivers produced – definitely better than any headset I currently own or have tested recently. It’s not the most comfortable headset I’ve ever worn, suffering from a vice grip at the ear cups but with proper adjustment this can be minimized.I found it difficult to remind myself that this is a $150 headset. The look, feel and overall quality of it is un-matched in today’s market. If you’re looking for a headset to use while PC gaming, look no further this is what you want. If you’re looking for a console headset… you may want to pass. However for a solo player this is a great option. Not having to worry about game and chat balance would avoid a key downfall for this piece. The wireless range is far enough for any practical reasons – I was able to go three rooms (4 walls) to the other end of my apartment without losing any quality; that was without being in chat though. Keep in mind that on console you also don’t have access to the Engine software, so you will be missing out on some great enhancements as well.Either way, this is a very classy, mostly comfortable and quality piece of equipment that for just $150 gives a lot in return.Comfort: 8/10Sound: 9/10Mic: 7/10Functionality: 6/10Total: 31/407.50/10Pros:-Great sound quality-The ear cup material is incredible-Suspension headband is very comfortableCons:-Very PC focused-Mic could be stiffer/better quality

  6. So it can be a tad confusing choosing between the Arctis 3, 5 and 7. I was under the impression that the more expensive model, the Arctis 7 would have a better sound stage, but I was wrong. All the headphones have the same sound card, but each headset have extra bells and whistles that are intended to work for PC, NOT the Xbox One. I don’t own a PS4 so I cannot comment on if these extra features will work/won’t work.The Arctis 7 has wireless capability. It also appears to have separate volume channels for both game and chat audio (arctis 5/3 only have game audio volume adjustment) . Wireless is NOT compatible for Xbox One, so if you plan on using this for your Xbox only like myself, don’t pay an extra $80 for a wireless feature that won’t be put to use.The Arctis 5 eliminates the wireless feature and separate chat/game audio volume, but they ADD RBG illumination lights. Again, this works perfectly for PC. As for the Xbox One as another reviewer stated will not light up for your Xbox. Don’t pay extra for a feature that won’t be put to use, unless you’re using this for PC games.The Arctis 3 is no frills headphones. Great sounding headphones, very boomy, and comfortable. Clever design with the retractable mic. I’m coming from the Hyperx Cloud II headset, though those headphones are extremely popular in terms of price, comfort and sound. I feel like the headphones are extremely overrated in terms of sound. The hyperx cloud 2 to my ears sounds a bit artificial. Hardcore gamers would describe moments in games where „you can hear enemies running from behind you.“ I never heard any of that with the hyperx. Seems as if they put more emphasis on comfort, which they did an amazing job on, but sound to me was average at best. The reason why I brought up hyperx is because in terms of sound, the Steelseries blows em out of the water. From gun fire, enemy footsteps, chatting with friends is way clearer. Only category that HyperX beats the Steelseries is comfort. But that’s not to say the Steelseries are uncomfortable (they are pretty damn comfortable), but the shape of the hyperx ear cups are definitely bigger/wider and more cushiony. These headphones are a damn good bargain at $70.I’m docking one star because I wish somewhere in the description they would tell consumers certain features are not compatible with the Xbox One if consumers intend to buy the Arctis 5 or 7. I had to exchange from the 7, to the 5, to the 3.As my headline said, if your intended use for this gaming headset is for the Xbox One only, go straight to the Arctis 3. Save yourself some money and time.Update 09/14/17So after owning this headset for a while, they’re still holding up strong and sound great. One thing to consider when using the mic. The mic is extremely sensitive, so if it’s super close to your lips/nose, players/friends in the chat can hear you breathing.. which can be an annoyance for them. So as a courtesy, keep the mic a fair distance away from your lips/nose so gamers don’t hear you breathing. Just something to be aware of before using this headset. Buy with confidence people!
