Overall we are very impressed with what the Sennheiser G4ME One has to offer. The aesthetic design is attractive and interesting, without looking too ostentatious. We also have complete confidence in the build quality of the G4ME one which feels very solid indeed.
The most impressive aspect of the G4ME One is the sound quality, though. Throughout our gaming tests it exhibited excellent performance, rendering all frequencies with impressive clarity. The balance of the headset also proved well suited to a wide range of music. The only slight disadvantage of this headset is the lack of sound-panning which was noticeable in both our gaming and movie tests.
The headset is comfortable and could easily be worn for a number of hours without discomfort. We would prefer leatherette earpads to the velvet that Sennheiser have chosen to use, but this will be down to personal preference.
At a price of £189.99 from Sennheiser’s online store, the G4ME One certainly is a serious investment. Even though they are expensive headphones, the stellar sound quality makes them a very compelling purchase indeed.
- Excellent sound quality.
- Solidly put together.
- Attractive design.
- No virtual surround sound.
KitGuru says: An excellent gaming headset with a steep price tag.
