Another gaming headset from Sennheiser has entered the fight. The Sennheiser GSP 300s, on the other hand, avoids the traditional trait of being excessively expensive (as do the GSP 670s and GSP 370s to some extent), providing a headset for usage with all devices for less than three figures. (Note: due to the joint venture launched this year, these may also be labelled as 'EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 300.')

Sennheiser GSP 300 Gaming Headset


The GSP 300s have a similar shape and style to its more costly brothers, immediately distinguishing them as a Sennheiser headset. The oval-shaped cushions are plush, and the headband padding isn't excessive. It's also comfy, despite the fact that it's a little huge overall (especially with the boom mic).

In my perspective, it rests in the Goldilocks area of 'just right' weight at 600g; not too heavy and not too light. My main reservation is that it frequently feels like both a well-made and a poor headset. Individual sections are wonderful, durable, and substantial, but the whole build seems fragile in your hands until you place it on your head... when gripping onto your bonce appears to be part of, and critical to, its structural strength.


The gaming headphones from the audio powerhouse will now be known as EPOS | Sennheiser, but that doesn't change anything about the audio quality we've come to know and love from the Sennheiser GSP 300. You'd be excused for thinking differently; the GSP 300s' price point is a crucial feature, owing to the headset's restricted nature.

In a nutshell, there aren't many bells and whistles. Apart from the volume control on the right and the boom mic (which auto mutes in the upright position) on the left, neither cup has any onboard functions, and the cord (which is automatically a dual green and pink) has nothing at all. That concludes the review of the features. In this regard, it's a rather basic headset, so if you're playing on PC, you'll have to rely on Razer's THX Spatial audio software for extra options. The Sennheiser GSP 300 basically lets its audio do the talking - more on that later.


The Sennheiser headset demonstrated that it doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles to accomplish a great job in a variety of games. Using it for The Last of Us Part II was one of my favourite experiences, since the Sennheiser audio quality comes through. Even if the audio cues and information are quite faint or the noise appears to be simple, they are delivered with clarity. When confronted with huge groups of foes, it is also really beneficial, offering such excellent aural aid in detecting them that I don't always need to utilise the characters' listening mode to position myself and prepare. 

The 300s are also fantastic at expressing every gory and gritty sounds right to my head with repulsive and creepy quality, therefore the noises of the infected foes deserve a note here. The headgear ups the tension and dread factor significantly. The concrete-formed echoes, ambient sounds, and supernatural noises of The Hiss and Jesse's powers are all exquisite in Control, and the concrete-formed echoes, environmental sounds, and supernatural noises of The Hiss and Jesse's powers are all exquisite.

Moving that tension and suspense into online shooters, the GSP 300s are excellent Apex Legends companions, with the audio brilliance assisting me much and carrying me through some shootouts with other players. The sound was clear, the accuracy was outstanding, and it was a pleasure to know that I could count on the sound to be as good as it is for detection and general enjoyment. 

This even extended to some older shooters like Battlefield 4, which I've been catching up on recently, with clear enemy sounds and depictions of warzone conflict and gunfire proving bombastic, large, and fabulous to immerse oneself in - it truly elevates that slightly older game through excellence in audio.

However, the GSP 300s shines in online co-op action and shooter games where communication is essential. Breakpoint and The Division 2 are two of my favourite games to play with my pals. The game music is given with all of the above-mentioned brilliance, and even the weather patterns of each of these planets are beautifully conveyed to my lugholes. 

However, the mic truly shines when my voice cuts through and across the room. When I initially started using the GSP 300s, my teammates commented on how clear and well-captured my voice was (clearer even than my PS4 Platinum Headset). The audio is thrilling and blends nicely with the crisp mic, whether you're navigating the streets of devastated Washington D.C. with waves of foes pouring from all sides, or carefully calculating a sneak strike on a wolf base in Breakpoint's Auroa.

The EPOS | Sennheiser GSP 300 headset also benefits from having a good boom mic, and my playing companions like the extra clarity it provides (however this feature makes the headset unsuitable for use on the commute in reality, and it's considerably better when attached to a console or PC).

Nonetheless, the chat-to-game audio balancing tool is something I truly miss. It's something I note in nearly every headset review I write, and I'm surprised it's not a more common feature. However, with a mid-range Sennheiser headset like this, when features are limited to a minimum to help cut costs, this may be an acceptable absence.

In terms of other media, it holds its own, thanks to Sennheiser's legendary skill ingrained in all the headset can accomplish. As a consequence, whether you're looking for music or movies, you won't be disappointed. It's still ideal for games, though, as the 15-26,000Hz frequency range is put to good use, demonstrating why Sennheiser is known for high-quality gaming audio.

Should you buy it in the end?

Getting a Sennheiser-quality headset at this price point and with this device adaptability is a fantastic deal, and one that is simple to recommend. Due to its non-detachable microphone and size, it may not lend itself as well to being a top Nintendo Switch headset or for usage as a mobile gaming set, but for any other device, this is a terrific pick that will not disappoint. The pricing reflects the Sennheiser name and quality, but it's also a wonderful appearance for the new EPOS | Sennheiser brand. I'd like to see some more features on a headset at this pricing point, similar to some of the Razer headsets we've been accustomed to.

However, it remains my backup headset for when my PS4 Platinum headset runs out of power or is charging - a position that I'll agree is a nice luxury - demonstrating its overall capabilities and quality. Despite its lack of functionality, this is still one of the greatest gaming headsets I've tried recently - and, in my opinion, one of the best PS4 headsets overall.
