Good deal – The “5-star” Sennheiser GSP 600 Gaming & Micro Headset at €99.99 (-24%)


After many years, Sennheiser is finally renewing its high-end offer and replacing its Game One and G4me Zero. The GSP 500 and GSP 600, launched respectively at 229 and 249 €, therefore arrive to offer a “professional” listening and communication solution to demanding players.

The GSP 600 makes a very successful entry into our comparison. It offers everything you expect from a closed wired gaming headset: a robust and neat design, great ease of use, a comfortable fit, incredibly effective isolation, very clean and clear voice pickup as well as precise, balanced and above all immersive sound reproduction. However, its small clip effect and its weight can put off, especially if you have a large head or are looking for a helmet that can be forgotten. We advise you to take a look at the HyperX Cloud Alpha which is, moreover, much more affordable.

Strong points

  • Nice sound balance.
  • Accurate, low distortion.
  • Robust helmet, very neat construction.
  • Highly effective passive insulation.
  • Very good quality capture.
  • Particularly comfortable…

Weak points

  • …but less for bigger heads.
  • A bit shy in the extreme highs.
  • Difficult to forget it once placed on the head.
  • Proprietary connector on the helmet.

NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average of the lowest prices charged by all merchants for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose the VAT policy is not clear (known as “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).

Alternatively

Despite a few minor flaws, the GSP 500 delivers an extremely solid overall performance. Comfortable (except for a pronounced clamp effect), equipped with an absolutely remarkable quality microphone, it also benefits from a very immersive sound reproduction, in particular thanks to a very ample and precise spatialization. However, the latter is expressed above all on games and films; for music listening, the GSP 500 is noticeably less at ease. So even though it is one of the best helmets gaming available, this relative lack of versatility should be taken into account before any purchase decision, especially at its very high launch price.
