Sennheiser Showcase New Gaming Range
Headphone-manufacturers Sennheiser took the stage at this year’s Gamescom to unveil a trio of new gamer-focused products.
With many gaming-headsets opting for good aesthetics and poor performance, their latest move in the arena is likely to win them some popularity.
“We’re very excited to be bringing a new range of products to Gamescom that reflects Sennheiser’s deep commitment to gaming,” said Sennheiser’s Tim Völker.
Völker asserts the new range will offer “a significant step up for gamers” and said that the headphone company’s efforts will go a long way towards “making gaming more immersive through superior sound.”
The first, The GSP300 is a new headset (compatible with PC, PS4, Xbox One and Mac) that touts “best-in-class acoustic seal that allows for total focus on the game, without interruption from outside noise” and “a broadcast quality noisecancelling microphone that helps minimize background noise for clearer team communications.”
According to Sennheiser’s Product Manager of Gaming Andreas Jessen, the GSP300 express a “pure design philosophy [that] starts with a single-minded focus on supporting the gamer, blending rugged durable design with the features and performance that gamers have come to expect from Sennheiser.”
Meanwhile, The GSX1000 audio amplifier promises “exceptionally immersive Surround Sound,courtesy of Sennheiser’s new Binaural Rendering Engine. It’ll provide pro-players with “exceptionally accurate positional sound” that Sennheiser suggest will translate into a unique competitive edge.
Finally, the GSX1200 PRO sweetens the deal by with Chat Link functionality: “which makes it possible to connect up to 8 GSX 1200 PRO’s together for hard-wired lag-free communication.”
A more professional iteration of the GSX1000, it also features advanced noise reduction that can be configured for both inbound and outbound sound
The GSP300 ($199.95), GSX1000 ($399.95) and GSX1200 PRO ($449.95) will head to Australian retailers towards the end of October.
