Sennheiser introduces its first multi-platform gaming headset and it looks to be a right bobby dazzler
Sennheiser has today announced its first multi-platform gaming headset, the U 320. Whether you prefer to game on PS3®, Mac, PC or Xbox 360®, or all of the above, the U 320 consistently delivers the best sound quality on all devices for a truly immersive gaming experience. Perfect for those who want to enjoy high-end gaming without accumulating multiple headsets for multiple devices.
The average age of gamers today is 25 and 'mature gamers' play on consoles more than they play on PCs, which is why Sennheiser created the U 320, to offer a consistent high-quality sound experience on every platform. So, if the kids have hijacked the Xbox®, there's nothing to stop you from simply plugging the headset into a Mac, PC or PS3® to enjoy your gaming time alone without disturbing others.
The U 320 is born out of Sennheiser's 65-year experience pursuing the perfect sound, and is designed to emphasise the different types of distinctive gaming sounds. The sound spectrum of the U 320 is superbly amplified, resulting in the legendary Sennheiser sound. Plus the bass boost is easily adjusted to fit your need for clear explosions, crashes or background music.
Thanks to great comfort, the U 320 is wearable for as long as a gamer wants to enjoy the getaway from everyday life. The open-acoustic design helps you keep a cool head, and the soft-padded unique CircleFlexT design ensures that the ear pads adjust automatically, making the game experience a comfortable thrill.
"The U 320 ensures the best conditions for enjoying your favourite game. We've worked hard to develop a consistent sound, regardless of the platform, and believe that our efforts will contribute to players everywhere enjoying a better sound experience," says Product Manager Christian Ern of Sennheiser Communications.
The pro noise-cancelling microphone reduces ambient noise for crystal-clear conversations with fellow players and friends, and allows the player to mute the microphone by simply raising the boom arm. Adjusting the dual volume control on the cable is just as easy, and the side tone switch monitors the voice while playing.
The U 320 multi-platform gaming headset is now available from HMV stores in the UK at a recommended retail price of £109.99. Just like the rest of Sennheiser's products, the U 320 is built to last. It therefore comes with Sennheiser's two-year worldwide warranty.
We will have the headset within the next week or two so stay tuned for a full review.
