Just want to point out that when you're plugging the cable in the headset, you need to give it a really strong push. When you first insert it, it may feel like it's in, but that's just the first (of 3) contacts that have made contact and engaged. Give it a really strong push, you won't break it! We've received multiple returned "faulty, dead on arrival" units and upon testing them, they all work fine once the cable is properly seated. There are numerous reviews/discussion posts below of people complaining about "very quiet audio, left channel doesn't work at all", etc. These are almost always solved with firmly inserting the cable. Regardless, if you're not happy with the product or believe yours is defective, please contact customer support and they'll gladly refund or exchange it for you.

I get why you had to say this, but isn’t that bog standard “good cables 101”?

If only, if only… It was definitely worth calling out that sometimes the cable feels like it’s plugged in, but the tolerances are tight and sometimes you really have to press (both at the headphone earcup and the tip). There were a couple devices where Sennheiser plugs actually “clicked” audibly when connected all the way. So many people don’t plug in all the way.

The DROP + Sennheiser PC38X Gaming Headset will soon be replaced by the Drop + EPOS PC38X Gaming Headset

What's with the new name?
EPOS merged with Sennheiser's Gaming division a while back and has been slowly transitioning the brand to be purely EPOS. We're currently selling the remaining "Sennheiser branded PC38X" units, and will be introducing the "EPOS branded" ones to the site shortly. Is there any difference between the products? The EPOS PC38X and Sennheiser PC38X units have been, and will continue to be, made at the exact same production facility. The specification of the headphone is the same, except the branding will be different. How long will the "OG" Sennheiser PC38X units be available for? These are no longer being produced, and will be available until we've sold the remaining inventory. For a brief time, you will be able to purchase either the Sennheiser or EPOS branded version of the headset. How are warranties handled? The warranty remains unchanged. If your product is defective within the warranty period, we will replace it.

Interesting video by BadSeed Tech was posted a couple of days ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jrpn1XhVD_Y&t=822s What GAMING Headphones do AUDIOPHILES Use? The answer (from a few creators): for "low-end" - PC38X (for "high-end" - HD 800S). (I have PC38X and PC37X - quite happy with both.)

For my fellow Canadians , I thought this may be helpful: I purchased my PC38x during Black Friday 2021. I'm located in New Brunswick, the cost breakdown was as follows: $129 USD + $15 USD (international shipping) = $144 USD $144 USD = $186.94 CAD (converted at 1.29819) +$36.04 CAD cod due on pickup from Canada Post Total = $222.98 CAD

I keep hearing these are better for gaming, but the HD58x is better for music. Does someone care to enlighten me? I feel as though audio quality should be audio quality and if one is better then it should be better at basically everything. I also keep hearing these have a wider soundstage than the HD58x but rtings seems to disagree with their sound staging scores on both headsets.

If I order this to the UK am I likely to incur further charges above the international shipping?

Will do when they arrive, they're still in America. I did read that it was at point of sale that vat should now be charged as opposed to on delivery. But was charged no vat at checkout.

Just for fun you guys… here’s some music playlists! This celebrates/sounds great on the PC37X, and also suits the PC38X just fine :)

These or the new Epos H6Pro? Or what about the TYGR 300R with a Modmic?
Do note the EPOS GSP 500 and EPOS H6 Pro Open not only sound different from each other but very different from the PC38x. So while all are made with the same new EPOS driver from EPOS and made by EPOS, the pads and housing impact them a lot. The driver was made while the EPOS team was still working under the name of Sennheiser Communication A/S. The same team different name but it's very much an EPOS driver vs the PC37x driver that was more closely based on a Sennheiser driver. Disclaimer: My measurement rig is an industry-standard clone. So it's accurate up to 3k compared to most GRAS rigs. Over 3k it's fairly off so ignore that tell I get a better calibration. But 3k-10k can be used well to compare to headphones.

Hey Caboose, hope you’re well. Thanks for advising, and yes I’ll agree they sound different because of their enclosures and such. One of the things I liked about the PC38X was that you get two sounds with the two included pads. Sennheiser did make the GSP 500, 600, and this PC38X driver, but it was to EPOS’ (Sennheiser Communication/Demiant) specification… not a problem to me, I like the way they tune things, though the aesthetics will of course be in the eyes of the beholder. What’s the model of your GRAS clone?

Anyone getting a lot of sound bleed through? While on call, other people can hear what I listen to even though my video is not loud at all. Never had this problem on the 37x.

No game noise or discord noise. But if I am listening to youtube or netflix it bleeds. Also would like to find a solution.

This is usually caused by the microphone in the boom of the headset being damaged and its touching the housing of the headphone. (This happens if the headset is dropped too many times, etc.). It's picking up the vibration(sound) of the headset. I.e. it's defective at this point. Assuming it's under warranty send it in and we'll replace it with a new unit.
