Sennheiser PC 373D Gaming Headset Review

Design

One of the first things you might notice with the Sennheiser PC 373D is that the ear cups and headband is lined with a soft velvet material instead of the usual soft leather material. The velvet plush headband and ear pads are very comfortable and are definitely very soft on the ears. The over-sized ear cups are connected with a thick adjustable head band, and the Sennheiser logo is printed just below the adjustment arms.

While the ear cups twist slightly in and out to match the angle of your head, they do not tilt forward and back. The ear cups themselves are constructed of a hard plastic with a metal piece in the center of the outside. This metal plate has vents in it for an open acoustic design which also adds ventilation to your ears while wearing for extended periods. The right ear cup has a volume dial, making it easy to adjust your volume while in the middle of a game.

The microphone boom is attached to the left ear cup and tilts up and down. Tilting it up mutes the microphone, while pulling it down switches on the microphone. The  actual microphone end has visible red mesh visible.

The Surround Dongle connects into the left ear cup via a 3.5mm audio jack. The Micro-USB cable then attaches to Surround Dongle and to your computer via the USB-A connection on the other end. The Surround Dongle is pretty simple and has a single Dolby button for toggling 7.1 surround sound on and off, and an LED light near the end that changes color from red when surround sound is off to white when surround sound is on.
