Today we are taking a look at the Sennheiser PC 360 Gaming headset. This headset is geared for gamers that demand great audio quality. It's not the cheapest headset around, and the specifications look pretty impressive. With all of that being said however, we will be taking a look at it and finding out if lives up to the hype and performs as we hope. Sennheiser makes some pretty stellar products and all of them demand a premium price tag. Stay tuned as we find out if the PC 360 can live up to our expectations.
The PC 360 is an open design stereo headset that has a couple of nice features - including extreme comfort and a great microphone. One of the nice features of the microphone is that it will mute if you position it in the "up" position. The volume control for the audio is also very intuitive and really completes the whole package.

We've reviewed quite a few gaming headsets over the years - most recently the Roccat Kave 5.1 headset. The Psyko Audio Carbon headset is also a good gaming headset, but both of these have a positional advantage as they are 5.1 headsets. The Thermaltake eSports Shock headset is probably about the most similar headset that we can compare to, but the price difference puts them in a separate class.
This is a basic (although high quality) stereo headset from a company that wants to turn the heads and ears of serious gamers. For the price of $200, it will have to deliver a pretty solid experience to end up on a gamers short list. The PC 360 is Sennheiser's flagship headset that aims to trump everything else they make. If you want to save a bit of money, you could choose one of their mid-range products - but they are trying to impress with the PC 360. Let's take a look and see if they can impress us from the get-go.
