Sennheiser GSX 1000 audio amplifier review

Rating: 8.0.

Sennheiser is well known for producing high-end audio solutions – we have even reviewed some of them. However it can also help you upgrade what you already have with its audio amplifiers. Take the product I am looking at today, for example. The GSX 1000 amplifier is designed to not only boost your gaming volume and audio quality, but give you virtual 7.1 surround sound too.

It comes with a number of interesting features, as well as a fancy volume control hub that sits neatly on your desktop. There is even some backlighting – though unlike a lot of peripherals out there at the moment, this one is not RGB compliant.


At £200 it is not cheap accessory and will need to do a lot to warrant using over built in sound cards or simply upgrading your headset – but that is what we are here to test.


  • 7.1 Sennheiser Binaural Rendering Engine – Surround Sound reborn.
  • Exceptional immersion – delivering outstanding audio performance in movies, music and games.
  • Aluminium volume wheel and high-quality materials for long-lasting durability.
  • Switch between your headset and speakers with the touch of a button.
  • Adjust game and communication audio separately.
  • Sidetone – adjust the loudness of your own voice in the headset.
  • EQ settings – Story, music, eSports, Off/neutral.
  • Peace of mind – 2-year international warranty.

    Hey Jon! Interesting product. I’m wondering if purchasing this amp would make sense for someone like me who has a pair of Philips Fidelio X1 cans plugged into an Asus Xonar STX sound card. What are your thoughts on this? I assume that this amp would then effectively replace the sound card then, as it uses the USB port for data?

    “it has the best virtual surround sound of any solution out there” –> wrong, you should check out the Realiser A8 or A16. Of course price is way higher too.

    My gaming headset is A Sony MDR1-A which I drive through my Asus Z170 Gene. Sorry for the wall of text but would I benefit from a product like the GSX1000 when the board already has a ESS9023P Sabre DAC? £200 is slightly more than I paid for the whole motherboard.

    ESS ES9023P digital-to-analog converter (DAC) with Hyperstream™ technology, ultra-low-jitter clock, Nichicon capacitors, 2Vrms headphone amp, and Sonic SenseAmp that automatically detects and optimizes any headset (32-600 ohms) for purest sound quality. SupremeFX 2015 also features intuitive Sonic Studio II for you to apply and enjoy different audio effects for perfect entertainment.
