Sennheiser gets you into the game with their new PC 350 headset. This product was designed for gamers and according to their marketing talk it features the most accurate sound positioning and sound quality available on the market:
The new PC 350 headset from Sennheiser Communications adds a never before experienced dimension of reality to gaming with the most accurate sound positioning and sound quality available on the market. Sound perception is so precise you literally feel like you’re in the game.
A circum aural, closed type headset, the PC 350 shuts out disturbing noises from your environment. That combined with the special shaping of the frequency response improves your ability to detect where a sound comes from. This helps significantly increase your reaction time, giving you a built in advantage over the competition.
Unfortunately the PC 350 costs as much as a decent graphics card, FUD Zilla reports the MSRP is $249. It should be available in retail stores next month.
