EPOS | SENNHEISER GAME ONE Acoustic Gaming Headset | Review

Quality and EPOS | SENNHEISER go hand in hand, so it’s no surprise the Game One Open Acoustic Gaming Headset from the German Manufacturer is a serious piece of headgear which is well worth considering if you are in the market for a new addition to your setup.

A look at the reviews on Amazon will tell you what the general public think of this headset and with good reason. The build quality is fantastic.

From the minute you take the Game One out of the box you can’t help but be impressed. Even though they get the job done, other headphones which we have reviewed often feel quite flimsy, feeling like they wouldn’t stand up to the punishment of everyday use. That’s not the case with the Game One, which are built to last.

This is a serious headset for serious gamers.

The design is superb and the fit ever so comfortable. EPOS | SENNHEISER have thought of everything to make the experience of wearing the Game One headset a joy. The ear cups are perfectly shaped and are covered with a plush velvet ear pads, which not only makes them comfortable to wear over a long period of time, but also, thanks to the shape of the cups, lets in air without compromising the noise isolation, allowing you to keep your ears cool and sweat free.

Game One also has perfect Mic placement. This Pro Noise cancelling mic doesn’t feel like an afterthought. Instead it is solidly built to last. It’s easy to use too, just swing it down in front of you to talk and swing it up again to mute yourself. It’s a simple thing, but oh so satisfying, and it also negates the need of having to find the mute button.

Elsewhere on the headset, EPOS | SENNHEISER have included an intergrated volume control on the ear cup, allowing you to easily adjust the volume without any hassle whatsover and with cables included in the box for compatibility with PS4, PC, Mobile, Tablet and more, you have everything you need to get started.

Of course build quality means nothing without sound quality and the EPOS | SENNHEISER Game One open acoustic gaming headset does not disappoint. The headset boasts an extremely accurate and natural sound experience and it delivers. This means you’ll spot an enemy coming and even know quite clearly what direction they are coming from, while cinematic games will fill your ears with their epic quality. This makes games sound both fantastic and realistic, while the noise isolation does an amazing job of keeping outside noise out, allowing for a fully immersive experience on headphones so comfortable you’ll probably forget you are wearing them. 

Online gaming or streaming is also perfect thanks to the crystal clear sound which you get through the mic, making this headset a perfect allrounder for gamers everywhere.

I’ve tried the headphones for both gaming, music and movies and I’ve enjoyed every minute. I’d go as far as to say they are the best headphones I’ve personally ever used for gaming and possibly even for music too. They are superb.
