Sennheiser Roam Free With Their GSP 670 Wireless Headset
Low latency wireless via a USB dongle is an important factor in Sennheiser's first wireless headset. The GSP 670 wireless is a proprietary Sennheiser technology compatible with PC and PS4 (any maybe PS5 in the future?). But you don't miss out if you have other devices as the headset also has Bluetooth. You can seamlessly switch between wireless and bluetooth to enable you to get back to the most important thing, gaming.
If you're anything like me sound quality is important and Sennheiser are always at the forefront. The closed acoustic design gives your clarity for all frequencies and the Gaming Suite for Windows lets you customise options including surround sound.
The microphone is broadcast quality and noise-cancelling and lifting the boom arm will mute it instantly. There's also two integrated volume wheels to allow you to balance your audio volume to what suits you.
When it comes to wireless obviously a battery is needed and you'll get 16 hours of battery life with the low latency wireless or 20 hour with Bluetooth. Quick charging means just a 7 minute charge will give you 2 hours of usage or just plug in the USB cable to your machine and keep gaming.
"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."Andreas Jessen, Director of Product Management Gaming at Sennheiser Communications A/S.
