Sennheiser's newest gaming headset boasts 100 hours of battery life

The GPS 370 combines low power consumption with a long-lasting battery to bring gamers a set of cans that last way longer than anything else in the market. The headset even outlasts Sennheiser’s high-end, $350 GPS 670 by a factor of five. The 670 runs for 16-20 hours, which is currently about the highest of any competitor as well.

With an SPL of 117dB, it is not shaving battery consumption by lowering output levels either. It uses the same sound processing as in its GPS 300 wired headset for the high-quality clarity Sennheiser is known for at near-zero latency. If the battery runs dry in the middle of a gaming session, you can just plug in the charging cable and continue using it.

It features the same a noise-canceling boom mic that mutes when raised like Sennheiser's other gaming headsets. The memory foam ear cups and head cushions are similar to others, like the SteelSeries Siberia 840, which is fairly comfortable but could be improved. The cans are also on a ball-joint, making them easily conform to any head without all the fidgeting.

Sennheiser consistently gets high marks for its gaming headsets, so this one should be no different in quality.

The GPS 370 is compatible with PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4 and is available on Sennheiser's website starting today for $199.95. It comes with a Bluetooth 5.0 dongle and micro USB charging cable out of the box. Sennheiser will also include its GSA 50 headset hanger, which normally sells for $38, for free.

...Why? It's the latest standard of USB cable......
Pawel04 probably wants USB-C instead. I don't blame him either and would probably join in the sentiment if it were not for my keyboard and PS4 controller still being on micro-USB. Interested though, gonna wait for more reviews.

I think you meant to say USB C is the latest standard.


So you can sit your a$$ in front of a PC non-stop for 100 hours?

From the previous news here...

UK's national health service opens gaming addiction clinic...
Or you know... play one or two hours a day/every other day without having to recharge the headset as often. Just because it boasts 100 hours of battery life, doesn't mean you have to use it all up in one sitting lol.

From the looks of it (or lack thereof), it looked like USB-C and I assumed "micro USB C" (the video is the only thing actually that shows it is the older standard, if barely).
Odd they wouldn't take advantage of USB-C, but I wouldn't complain (as the long cable is only for charging).
