Sennheiser G4ME ONE is no ordinary gaming headset. It has been designed from inside out to facilitate the gamers. Sennheiser always has a competitive advantage because it designs its own drivers and tweaks them accordingly. Companies such as Razer and SteelSeries use the standard 50, 30, 40 or 60mm neodymium drivers and then tweak them which is more or less the same thing. Given its price, G4ME ONE is not cheap but it does not give you much to complain about as well.
There are more praises than criticism for G4ME ONE. Comfort wise nothing beats it; hands down. The XXL ear padding has worked tremendously well and defeated even the more expensive headsets. The reduction in heat buildup is let alone a very strong sales point. Although, one would think that the ventilation holes on the exterior might affect background noise cancellation but surprisingly it does not.
In no way G4ME ONE lacks in terms of performance as well. A music lover such as me would love to have some extra bass and gaming headsets are usually known to be bass heavy but the G4ME ONE lacks here a bit. Overall, it’s a solid headset for gaming however you might want to look somewhere else if you listen to music as much as you play games. The microphone is yet again a master piece of engineering with so much clarity even in a noisy place. There is hardly any place where you can go wrong with G4ME ONE when it comes to gaming experience.
Sennheiser G4ME ONE retails for $229 in the US but does not come with any accessories hence it can’t be regarded as a plug and play headset for consoles. In order to use it with latest consoles, users need to spend extra $10 or so for the combo adapter. There are many options for gamers in this range but nothing is as complete as G4ME ONE.
