Gaming peripherals are a dime a dozen at CES 2018, but Sennheiser is hoping to stand out from the crowd with its latest headset, the GSP 600. A successor to Sennheiser's Game Zero, the GSP 600 is meant to improve on its predecessor across the board.
Sennheiser says the new design should help to improve noise insulation and comfort by using the memory foam pads to more effectively isolate your ears from the outside world. A new speaker system is on board as well, with aluminum voice coil speakers that Sennheiser claims will strike a nice balance between your bass, mids, and highs. That's in addition to a boom mic that can be muted in an instant by flipping it up and out of the way.
In our review of the Game Zero, we found it to be very comfortable, but the sound quality was lacking. If Sennheiser has succeeded in ramping up the sound quality on the GSP 600, then it could be a solid option if you're in the market for a new headset for your PC or console. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny, however: the GSP 600 will fetch $249 when it's available at the end of January. If you're looking to save some change, however, the older Game Zero is currently available at a discounted $189 at Amazon.

Been using the game zero for 5 years now without fail. Mic boom is great and still holds its set position. Sound isn't bad but not great either. Hoping this one comes thru I've been a big sennheiser fan for years.
