A little flat across the top

Brad S., Newegg

  • Summary: Still shopping for Sennheiser brand despite this experience.
  • Pros: Connected to Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Micro and sound quality is excellent. Very even response and tonal qualities with music. Did not try with other sources or test the microphone.
  • Cons: I intended to use the PC161s in my office in combination with the Sennheiser UI760 for music and telephone, but they look so ungainly I cannot imagine being seen wearing them. I asked a coworker to try them on and his response was "no bro' I trust you". The headband is nearly flat across the top ...

  • Summary: If you are going to buy these you must be using them for one thing and one thing only GAMES. Going to try burning these in seeing if that helps. I have gone through over 10 pc 150 headsets they last me from over 1-3months before a speaker, mic or everything starts going out.
  • Pros: This headset is too low in volume to distort, i am sure they would sound decent with any high end sound card. i currently have usb sennheiser sound as i have no pci slot. They sound great in-game with decent sound and positioning but for music and movies they blow.
  • Cons: Volume is too low. Bass has no real punch. Other reviews sucked me in. Maybe they last longer than 150 models? Mic is not that great. NOT FOR MUSIC.
