A while back I sat down and took a look at the GSP 300’s from Sennheiser and ended up giving them our Top Honors award because they performed extremely well while still being priced under $100. This put them in line with the few other gaming headphones that I consider to be good quality. My only issue really was their small earcup size because I prefer a larger over the ear design. Well, I have been testing the Sennheiser Game Zero’s, Sennheiser’s over the ear headset design. They are significantly more expensive, but I was curious to see if going higher end will finally really give you that audiophile experience in a proper gaming headset. But fist let’s check them out before I talk about how they performed.

Wish I had this model. I have the original Game Zero that was 150 ohm impedance. This means I need a great onboard sound solution with amp or an external. However it is so worth it the some is fantastic. Like you the price is a turn off, especially since the HyperX Cloud (the original only please) can be found for under half the price. Now lets be clear the Sennheiser has better sound, no doubt, but not enough better to justify 2x pricing.
