Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent product for the price.
You get a lot of quality for the price you pay. Sennheiser is by far the best.
Pro Very good microphone and noise canceling
The microphone ranks among the best and features excellent noise canceling which does a great job at eliminating background noises.
Pro Great soundstage width
The open back design gives a feeling of width to the sound, which is great for movies and games. This effect is achieved without having to rely on virtual surround sound software techniques.
Pro Tight and punchy bass, meaty and warm mids as well as clear and airy highs
The GAME ONE has excellent sound quality and offers good balance between the different sound frequencies. The bass is tight and punchy instead of the overpowering and bloated low-end that most gaming headsets have.
Mids have good presence and fullness, so game dialogue should be easily heard. The highs are crisp and airy so a lot of detail can be enjoyed from games, yet the headset is not fatiguing to listen to, even with long gaming sessions.
Pro Comfortable to wear
Inside the ear pads, reasonably thick memory foam is used so they feel really soft. On the surface is high quality velour which not only feels really smooth but also allows for some airflow to the ears, minimizing heat build-up.
Con Large mic has limited adjustment
The mic is quite large and while it can be bent further away from the face, its bulk means that it is still quite visible and can hit your head should you remove or put on the headset. Also, the mic can only swing up and is not removable or retractable, adding to the size of the headset.
Con Long cable is non-removable
Cable tangles can be a problem with this headset as the attached cable is non-removable and is also quite long.
Con Feels cheap
The headset feels a little flimsy and cheap due to the mostly plastic build materials.
