Great Deal on this Headset tbh. Was £219 only a few weeks ago.

This is the Game one headset (which is currently £177) with 7.1 added.

IMO this is an Absolute Steal for a Great headset with a 2 year warranty.

I have the game one and its the best headset on the market!!!!!

Also avaliable at Argos for same price!!…BwE

But people say gaming headsets suck. How does this one compare to something like DT990?

i cant compare as i haven't used the DT990. The Game one is based on the HD558's - Remember what is good for gaming isnt allways best for music. Even though these are based on the 558's they will be tweaked for gaming.

The game one sounds dam good imo.

The headset above is 373D and is USB so some compression will be there over the game one that is straight analogue.

dozstanford10 m ago'sFun: 8.5/10 (Excellent)Competitive: 8/10 (Great)Comfort: 8.5/10 (8/10 for the 990 Pros due to stronger clamp)Sadly no rating for the PC373D, but there is for the 360's and out of the two the DT990's are rated better.

Think you miss my point, for pure sound the DT990's are better no doubt. AGAIN look at these as a sennhiser 558. which is what these are.

Although from the Head fi org it compares the 360 which is a lower model then this and mentions the DT990 and says the sennhiser has a better soundstage.
Seriously, if you want a headset, this is one is hard to pass up. Easily the best headset I have heard with a sound quality that doesn't make audiophiles cringe.

Clarity? Check. It slightly lags behind headphones like the AD700, K70x, Q701, and HD598, but for gaming, it is NO slouch. I can say that it COULD be clearer as a whole in comparison to headPHONES in their price range, but as far as headsets go, I highly doubt clarity would ever be a complaint. It picks up subtle details with ease.

Balance? Check. There is no part of the audio spectrum that I felt was truly emphasized over the rest. Well balanced. That's all I can say. Treble is neither too smooth, nor too sparkly. It sounded neutral. Fantastic.

Soundstage? Lagging behind the monsters that are the K70x and AD700, but is indeed no slouch. I'd say it has a bigger soundstage than the DT990. Fantastically large sense of space and airiness.

Directional Cues? Check. What can I say? This may actually be as good as the best when it comes to overall directionality. Trust me when I say that I could EASILY tell where sounds were coming from with the games I love to test.

Easy to discern front and back? Check. Perhaps the main shortcoming of Dolby Headphone (as some games just don't do this well even with the best headphone ever), and the PC360 got it down masterfully for those games that do rear positional cues well.

If you're in the market for a wired headSET, this should be the top priority. If you're looking for clarity, the PC360 does a fantastic job.

Comfort-wise, it's near identical to the HD598. The pads are wonderful and huge enough for your ears, but the clamp can be bothersome. Extend them to fit loosely, and they'll feel pretty good. Your mileage will vary. the velour headband padding is a step above the abundant amount of pleather on the 598's headband.

The PC360 is definitely a gaming beast.
