Sennheiser is known to make some of the best audio gear on the market for things like studio recording to DJ equipment. But some people don’t actually know that they also have a gaming audio side of things and have a whole lineup of gaming headsets. With that being said, today I’m taking a look at the Sennheiser GSP 370 Wireless gaming headset.
Big thanks to Sennheiser for sending this out for review.
What’s in the Box?
The unboxing experience of the GSP 370 is quite nice, the box is sleek looking to catch your eye and offers some good but basic information about the headset. Once you open the box the headset is actually contained in a plastic box that conforms to the headset to keep it safe during shipping.
Included in the box of the Sennheiser GSP 370 is the headset itself, a USB wireless receiver, Micro-USB charger cable and some documentation.
Design and Features
The design of the Sennheiser GSP 370 follows the same design rules as Sennheiser’s other gaming headsets. The headset is made entirely of a matte grey plastic with some hints of gloss around the ear cups. I’m a really big fan of the look of this headset, it’s nice and minimalistic but also quite ‘gamery’.
The headset is also very sturdy and solid thanks to the high quality plastic sennheiser used. The actual headband is able to withstand a lot of torquing and twisting which is good to see.
It has no RGB or ‘bling’ of any kind which I am quite okay with, what’s the point of lights on something that you wear on your head?
On the right side is the big volume wheel which is very easily accessible while wearing the headset which makes adjusting the volume in game as easy as it possibly can be.
On the left is the mic boom arm which mutes when you put it up instead of having a fiddly little button like some headsets. Also on the left is the Micro-USB charging port, Power switch and led status light.
I also like how Sennheiser went with a plain USB receiver instead of a big bulky external receiver ‘box’ that takes up room on your desk.

Setting up the Sennheiser GSP 370 couldn’t be easier, all you have to do is just plug it in and you’re good to go. No syncing or configuring required!
The GSP 370 is pretty light and has soft squishy ear cushions with a soft leathery material covering it, they don’t push on or feel tight against your head while wearing them,even with glasses on. The headband is also quite soft and conforms to your head without adding an pressure. I was fully able to wear this headset for hours without any pressure or soreness! They do however get a little hot and sweaty after a long while which is something you will find on almost all headsets.
The Sennheiser GSP 370 produces clear and crisp audio. It doesn’t become harsh or clip when listening at high volume. The bass is strong but not overpowering and mixes in quite well when listening to music or playing games. The GSP 370 also gives you good positional audio giving you an upper hand in gaming by being able to hear the footsteps of enemies and other players.
The microphone is okay, it’s a bit muddy and muffled but is plenty fine for in-game chat and things like skype calls, Just don’t expect to be doing much commentary with this microphone
A weird bug with the GSP 370 is when you shutdown your PC, the headset loses connection and you have to plug in the USB receiver again when you turn the PC back on. It seems a lot of people are having this issue as some reviewer friends of mine have also talked about the headset losing connection after shutdown.
This is one of the big features that the GSP 370 is marketed towards, Sennheiser claims that you can get up to 100 hours of playtime on a single charge. To be honest with you, I did lose count of how many hours I had been using the headset overtime without charging but it was something around the 80 hour mark which is just incredible!
The Sennheiser GSP 370 goes for around $350 AUD on sites like Mwave.
The Sennheiser GSP 370 is a great headset with amazing battery life, it offers a good listening experience both in game and while consuming media and has a pretty decent microphone. I would definitely recommend this to a PC gamer looking for a plain, simple and high performance gaming headset.
