The Sennheiser GSX 1200 Pro is a capable gaming amp, coming in at just under £220.
It is quite similar to its little brother, the GSX 1000, given they both sport excellent virtual surround-sound implementations and the same on-screen controls.
Where the GSX 1200 Pro differs, though, is in its ability to connect to other units for hardwired communication. This would be great for eSports teams competing in busy halls or arenas – everyone has their own amp, they are daisy-chained together and you get a real time audio feed.
If that doesn’t interest you, though, there is no reason to spend the extra £20 on the GSX 1200 Pro over the GSX 1000. The reason you would spend that extra money is for that unique ability to connect to multiple devices and get local chatter without the need for Discord or in-game audio comms.
With that in mind, I think the Sennheiser GSX 1200 Pro is definitely worth the extra cost – provided you will use its extra features, an extra £20 seems like a very good deal to me. If you just want a dedicated gaming amp with excellent virtual surround-sound, go for the GSX 1000 instead.

KitGuru says: The GSX 1200 Pro is a very good gaming amp. It’s chat link feature would be great for eSports teams competing locally, but if you won’t use the feature save the cash and get the GSX 1000 instead.
