The Sennheiser PC 350 Special Edition (SE) is not much of a looker. It is for hard core gamers, to suit their need for the ultimate gaming experience. If you are looking for a stylish pair of headphones for yourself, then the SENNHEISER PC 350 SE Gaming Headphones is not built for you. Available in black, it looks bulky and at 312 g, it is not exactly very light. However, you are not likely to feel the weight o your head and around your ears since the ear cups and the headband distribute the weight of the headphone evenly.
The ear cups are heavily cushioned by leather covered memory foam that encompasses the entire ear; thereby preventing any kind of sound from bleeding out. The over-ear feature may cause some discomfort in terms of warming the ear, as is common among all over-ear headphones. The ear cups are made from a combination of plastic and grey aluminum, ensuring comfort and durability. The hinges around the headband ensure that the headphones access maximum movement along the planes and ensure user comfort.
Sennheiser is synonymous with great sound and the PC 350 does not disappoint in this aspect. The Sennheiser PC 350 SE packs in great balance between the ranges. However, since the Sennheiser PC 350 SE is a pair of analogue headphones, a lot depends on your computer’s sound card processing. A regular PC setup, however, produces reasonable sound quality as well. The Sennheiser PC 350 renders the perfect gaming experience with loud sound, and great balance as well as not being harmful to your ears. The Sennheiser PC 350 SE has an inbuilt microphone that cannot be detached and re-attached.
That, is assumed to be the only flaw in the SENNHEISER PC 350 SE Gaming Headphones. Otherwise, it assures exceptional noise cancellation, so far as only loud frequencies of ambient noises will permeate through the headphones. Also, the microphone picks up nothing; which is fastened to the left ear cup. The microphone is held on bendable elastic and is perfectly stable. The microphone can fold all the way up to ensure convenient portability. You can also hit mute on the microphone if you plant it at 75 degrees to the headset; and you will hear a click ensuring that you have put the headset on mute. The Sennheiser PC 350 comes along with a braided cable that terminates into a 3.5 mm jack. There are two jacks, one for each: the microphone and the headphones. The rugged Sennheiser headphones not only look that they are built for wear and tear, but are also made for that purpose. However, one genuine piece of genius is the Sennheiser PC 350 volume control which is embedded in the right ear cup, just beneath the logo.
The SENNHEISER PC 350 SE Gaming Headphones also comes along with a portable kit that houses the cables and the headphones. The cables are neatly held in place by a Velcro strap. In terms of usage, the Sennheiser PC 350 SE is a grand pair of headphones to be used by gamers.
