Sennheiser just released news of a new wireless headset. Details here:
Sennheiser introduces the GSP 670, Sennheiser’s first wireless gaming headset. The GSP 670 gives gamers significantly more freedom of
movement than wired models. The audio specialist has integrated a proprietary low-latency connection that guarantees a reliable and stable transmission with near-zero delay. In addition, the GSP 670 offers Sennheiser’s renowned wearing comfort and premium audio performance.

The wireless technology used by the GSP 670 is based on a low-latency connection developed by Sennheiser. Paired with the included GSA 70 compact USB dongle users will experience a transmission with near-zero delay. This proprietary connectivity is compatible with PC and Sony PlayStation 4. The headset also features Bluetooth to simultaneously pair it to compatible devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Users can pick up calls at the touch of a button and seamlessly switch back to the low-latency connection of their game when they hang up.
Sennheiser Gaming Suite enables personalized sound on PC
Users will enjoy Sennheiser’s renowned sound quality: the closed acoustic design provides a warm, deep bass without compromising the mid-range and high frequencies, so you can enjoy high-fidelity audio to the fullest. For an even more personal sound, Sennheiser offers its Gaming Suite for Windows. This tool gives you access to various surround sound modes, an equalizer, microphone options, and ready-to-use presets for typical genres and occasions, allowing you to adjust the audio to your own preferences.
Independent control over game and chat audio
The GSP 670 features a
broadcast-quality noise-cancelling microphone, which actively minimizes
background noise and can be muted by simply lifting the boom arm. The gaming
headset also provides the ability to independently control the chat audio and
game audio to ensure the communication never goes down. Simply use the two
integrated volume wheels to balance the levels between gameplay and voice
Long battery life and quick charging via USB
The battery life of up to 20 hours via Bluetooth® and up to 16 hours over the low-latency connection allow for long gaming sessions. Intelligent battery management detects when the headset is used and automatically powers the headset on and off to maximize battery life. The GSP 670 supports quick charging over USB: after a 7-minute charge the headset can be used for 2 hours. The headset can also be used while charging. It even works solely via USB cable without the USB dongle connected to the system.
For total comfort during long gaming sessions, the ear pads feature a cooling suede-like material that prevents the ear pad from sticking to your skin, combined with leatherette around the edges to passively reduce ambient noise.The headband features adjustable contact pressure; in combination with a clever metal hinge system, the GSP 670 adapts perfectly to any head size and face shape.
“The Sennheiser GSP 670 is the result of years of development and is not only our first wireless headset, but also the best wireless headset for gamers to date.
It combines all the strengths for which Sennheiser is well-known all over the world: maximum wearing comfort, audio performance of the highest level, and
clever features that you couldn’t do without,” says Andreas Jessen, Director of Product Management Gaming at Sennheiser Communications A/S.
This makes the GSP 670 the ideal solution for gamers who don’t want to compromise, but still want to enjoy all the flexibility of wireless gaming headsets.
