Sennheiser GSP 300 review: "Quality Sennheiser gaming audio made affordable"


Another Sennheiser gaming headset enters the fray. However, the Sennheiser GSP 300s shrug off the usual characteristic of being extremely premium in price tag (like the GSP 670s and the GSP 370s to some extent), offering a headset for use with all devices for less than three figures. (Note: you may also find these listed as ‘EPOS Sennheiser GSP 300’.)


Immediately identifying itself as a Sennheiser headset, the GSP 300s feature a similar shape and form to its more expensive siblings. The oval-shaped cushions are comfy, and its head-band cushioning is not over the top. And although it is a bit big overall – particularly so with the boom mic factored in – it’s comfortable.

At 600g it sits in the Goldilocks territory of ‘just right’ when it comes to weight, in my opinion; not too heavy and not too light. My only concern here is that it often feels like both a well-built headset and also a mediocre one. The individual parts are great and sturdy and solid, but the overall build feels flimsy in your hands before you put it on your head… where clamping onto your bonce seems to be part of, and key to, its structural integrity.


EPOS | Sennheiser is the new moniker that gaming headsets from the audio behemoth will now be released under, but that doesn’t dilute everything that we’ve come to know and love about their audio quality for the Sennheiser GSP 300. You’d be forgiven for thinking otherwise, though; a key feature of the GSP 300s is price point, mostly thanks to the headset’s limited nature.

In short, there are barely any bells or whistles. There are no onboard features on either cups aside from the volume control to the right and the boom mic (which auto mutes in the upright position) on the left, and nothing on the cable (which is automatically a dual green and pink) at all. And that’s it – that’s the features reviewed. It’s a supremely stripped-back headset in this department, leaving you to rely on Razer’s THX Spatial audio app if you’re playing on PC for more versatility.
