Design and Build
The Sennheiser Game Zero is a Closed-back headset with great decent looks. The Matte black finish on the headset makes it easier to pair with any gaming setup, as we all know that black is a very versatile color.
Because of its foldable design, the Sennheiser Game Zero is a very portable and versatile headset. You can also carry it around with you in a small box.
This wired gaming headset has a volume control slider on the side of its right earcup through which you can change the volume with great ease. The flip microphone is also attached to this headset, which has a feature to mute itself when flipped upwards.
The Sennheiser Game Zero also features a removable cable. The removable cable adds points to the durability of this headset. This cable is 3 meters long, giving its user some space to move freely. But not as much as a wireless headset does.
Its replaceable earpads also give the user more options and durability, which is vital for a headset.
The Sennheiser’s Game Zero weighs 300 grams, which is not that heavy, considering it’s a headset with XXL transducers and a microphone attached.
The Sennheiser Game Zero headset is equipped with XXL transducers capable of producing High Fidelity sound with great acoustics and deep bass. And thanks to its XXL earcups, a perfect sound stage is formed inside them, giving the game’s full vibe.
The Stereo sound in this headset is far superior to the other cheap headsets that claim to have 7.1 Surround Sound. Its stereo effect can give proper sound positioning to the user. And because of this excellent sense of sound positioning, a gamer can easily locate their in-game opponents through the sounds of their movements. Giving them an edge over their competitors. This is why this headset is best for CSGO.
However, It is still a stereo sound headset. It can differentiate between the sound using its left and right earcup. But the sense of the whole world around the head will still be missing.
Furthermore, these headsets’ noise cancellation effect allows the user to get greater privacy, even in a crowded environment. Also, a user gets cut off from the outside world because of this noise cancellation, giving them more focus in the in-game world.
Now let’s talk about the technical side of this headset. The headset can produce sounds with a frequency as low as 15 Hz, meaning that it can produce a great quality deep base. Also, the bass can be further improved through the audio equalizer software. The bass is good enough to get a song’s full vibe or a game in simple wordings.
But the higher frequencies of the Sennheiser Game Zero are even more significant. The maximum producing frequency range is 28,000 Hz. At which point, the headset can produce apparent vocals and outstanding treble. Thanks to its driver unit and the wide range of frequency responses, this headphone can produce High-Fidelity audio quality with qualitative acoustics.
And now comes the bad part. The headset has a high impedance of 50 ohms, meaning it may require a sound card or an amplifier depending from device to device. Most modern PCs and laptops are good enough to give audio performance similar to a sound card or an amplifier. But that’s not the case for Mobile Phones.
Except for high-end flagship phones, this headphone will not work properly on mobile devices. Therefore, limiting its versatility and compatibility. But in truth, the headset of this design is not so good-looking with mobile phones for normal usage.
And lastly, its wired 3.5 mm technology helps immensely produce excellent sound compared to a wireless headset of the same price range.
Now we know that this headset is good-looking, and with the right hardware, it can produce excellent sounds. But if it is not good at comfortability, then it’s not a good headset.
However, that’s not the case here. The memory-foam earpads used for the cushioning of the earcups are very soft. The user’s ear can remain cozy and comfortable inside the earcup for very long sessions.
The headband is also equipped with excellent paddings. Adding more, the clamping force of its headband on the ear is also minimal. However, its adjustable design makes sure it’s a perfect fit for almost every head size.
The only downfall about this headphone is its weight. The mediocre weight of 300 grams might get uncomfortable for some users.
The Sennheiser Game Zero is equipped with a flip-up microphone that mutes the mic’s input sound on flipping up completely.
The Mic is good at reducing or eliminating the background noise, making it a good option for gaming zones.
Its microphone has an input frequency range of 50 Hz to 16,000 Hz. This means that they have greater compatibility with many sound drivers and other microphone adjustments.
In simple wordings, the microphone’s input quality is good enough to communicate with your teammates, record a voice, conduct zoom meetings, or even do streaming.
Because of its 3.5 mm jack, this headset is compatible with many gaming platforms, including Nintendo, Xbox, PlayStation, PC, or a Mobile Phone, making it a good option for all gamers worldwide.
Finally, we would say that the Sennheiser Game Zero is a good option for gamers. From compatibility to sound quality to comfort to good looking gaming design, this headset offers them all.
There are some setbacks with this headset. But at its affordable price range, it is offering many good features.
