How’s the headset holding up durability wise till this point?
Feb 25, 2021
I've been using mine since early November 2020 and so far they are holding up fine. However, I do not abuse them and have never dropped them. I typically use them every night after work for about 2-4 hours while playing games and hang them on a headphone hanger when not in use. I have removed and swapped out the earpads numerous times while I was trying out different 3rd party earpads and there have been no problems with the stock earpads or the cups that the earpads attach to. Overall, I'd say that the headset does NOT have a premium feel to it because it feels like it's all plastic, but it also has no issues, cracks or broken parts either. What it does have is great positional sound and soundstage for the games I play so I can recommend it based on that. Just be careful with them and don't abuse them - like any plasticky product they may have issues if pushed too far. :-) Good luck. QUICK UPDATE 5/25/21: It's been over 6 months since I started using them and everything is still all good. Works well, no issues. UPDATE 9/25/21: Still going strong after almost a year. Still sound great, and no issues. UPDATE 5/16/22: Still going strong with nightly use for gameplay. Still sound great, and no durability issues. UPDATE 11/09/22: I have hit the the two year mark since I started using this headset and I'm still very happy I made the purchase. I continue to use them almost every day and have encountered zero issues and they still sound great. Thanks to everyone who has used my link to purchase items from Drop - although I can't contact you directly to say thanks, I can collectively say thanks here. So, thanks! UPDATE 09/21/23: Still using the headset and all is well. No issues and still love the sound. One change - I got new earpads (SOULWIT Cooling Gel Ear Pads for Sennheiser) which I find most comfortable because they move my head further away from the drivers and my ear no longer touches the driver.

Windows doesn't recognise the headset, what can I do?
Feb 25, 2021
Considering the PC38X are analog headphones there's nothing really to recognize. You need to troubleshoot the port settings or whatever sound card you're using.

jammin72Wrong, Microsoft Teams uses a modified standard. Teams head phones work with standard protocol, but not vice versa.

Are you trying to use the dual-connector cable? Or the single-connector one? If you connect the headphone+microphone combo plug to a headphone-only jack, your microphone won't work. Have you ruled out a problem with the sound device into which you are plugging the headset?

nuclearmistakeI thought my Dell MFF work pc had separate Headphone and Mic connections, and got no Mic audio. Duh. When in doubt, RTFM. Line Out does not equal Mic In. Switched to the combo cable - and boosted the Mic gain 10dB - and all is good. Got the adapter so I could use the longer cable. Really like how these work/sound in Zoom, etc.

Do they work jacked into your phone? It's analog, no drivers or anything needed. Sometimes it might pop up and ask what type of device it is (headphones vs headset etc)...otherwise check your port, sound drivers, and make sure the volume is up (rotary on right ear)

Is there another device you can test with to narrow down the issue? (I.e. is it a problem with the headset or your pc)
Aug 7, 2022
I know you fixed the issue, but I will mention it here. There are 2 different "standards" when it comes to TSSR connections, so you might have to buy a converter to switch from one to the other.
For this headset is an amp necessary? If it is, what are some good quality amps I can use with this headset?

for pc just use a apple dongle type C (and a usb adapter if needed).it will run you 10 to 15$. it powers it completely great, clean, and the mic quality is funny enough better than some more costly options. for Game console like xbox and ps5.. no need. you can set the mic volume to 90% before hearing any background noise at 50% headphone volume when reviewing your voice. (50% is very very loud.)

My pair of pc38x have a wierd distorted sound and I can’t hear other players in chat and they can’t hear me on PS5

Make sure you have the cable pushed all the way into the earcup. I had a similar problem and was surprised at how strongly I had to push the cable into the earcup in order to get a full connection. Good luck.

My motherboard is an MSI X570 Tomahawk WIFI with Realtek ALC1200, is it going to be enough? Does anyone use them with DAC/AMP? Is it really worth investing in Schiit Fulla 3 100$? I also have a cheap Apple Type C to 3.5mm DAC, is it going to sound better than my motherboard soundcard?
Feb 25, 2021
Your motherboard audio will probably be good enough. I tried a number of different sources for these (including motherboard front and back audio ports) and mentioned them in my review here: I hope this helps.
