Is the PC37X open-back or closed-back? The PC37X is an open-back headset. This means that there is no physical structure that envelops the back of the drivers. In general, open-back headphones have a superior soundstage when compared with closed-back headphones. This is because a closed ear cup produces reflections in the sound. This means the perceived location of a sound is more precise, which is specifically important in gaming (think CS:GO). What are the drivers in the PC37X? How is the sound quality? The Massdrop x Sennheiser PC37X uses the same drivers as the Sennheiser PC 373D. Regarding sound quality, the PC37X is very comparable (if not superior to) audiophile headphones in the same price point, and it sounds better than the vast majority of gaming headsets. How is the mic quality? The PC37X has one of the best mics among headsets that we’ve tested. Most complaints for gaming headset mics are a result of either hardware issues (manufacturers using cheaper parts or making suboptimal design decisions) or software issues (manufacturers adding an on-board soundcard or proprietary software that performs poorly). On the hardware side, the PC37X contains a mic that is designed specifically by Sennheiser (which has extensive experience as a microphone developer and manufacturer) for high-volume, low-distance recording. On the software side, the PC37X has no signal processing and outputs straight into the mic jack on your motherboard or soundcard, therefore avoiding any potential issues. Is the cable removable? Yes, the cable is removable and replaceable. I plugged in the PC37X and the sound or mic doesn’t sound right/good? Most issues that users have experienced are due to problems with their computer hardware or software setups. Unfortunately, it can be hard to diagnose the specific reason or root cause. @acey for example has written a reply to help solve one user’s problems (*1). One thing to mention is that, it’s generally recommended to plug the headset directly into the sound card (as opposed to using front panel audio ports) in order to minimize interference. Does the PC37X work for console gaming (PS4, Xbox One, etc.) or mobile or mac? Yes, however, you will need an adapter or a separate cable. The included cable ends in two jacks (headphone & microphone) whereas most consoles/phones have one port that takes a TRRS (4 pole) AHJ/CTIA standard 3.5mm jack. If you want an adapter, something similar to this one (*2) should work. For Macs, something similar to this one (*3) should work. If you want something more sleek, you can get a cable that plugs straight into the headset and ends with a TRRS jack. Something similar to this one (*4) would work. Is there a limited amount of units available? Yes, for the second production run, we are limited to 600 units. We are currently working with Sennheiser to increase the limit. Will this drop be available internationally? What will be the shipping price internationally? Yes, the drop will be available to all international countries that Massdrop ships to. International shipping will be around $15. We will continue to add to the FAQ as more questions arise. *1: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-sennheiser-pc37x-gaming-headset/talk/1618390 *2: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/pcv-05 *3: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/pcv07 *4: https://en-us.sennheiser.com/accessories--unp-console-cable--game-one--game-zero

Thanks so much for putting in the time to tell me all about this. I currently use a pretty cheap soundcard and after what you said I might invest that $300 or so into a Creative ZxR! I still have a great excitement for my headset to be delivered because regardless of what sound card it is, it's going to sound better than my Kraken Pro v2s hopefully. Also, I'm not too worried about having a microphone port at all, I use a Blue Yeti microphone, so it's a USB port anyway. I won't be using the Sennheiser's built-in mic at all...

Glad to help! If I kept it to myself, I would just be a nerd, but if I share and help others, at least I can put the time I spent learning to good use ;) If you have just a cheap soundcard right now, might I suggest the Creative G6 instead? Still a good soundcard, isolated from the noise inside of a PC, also compatible with a Mac or game console, still a solid starting point with more than enough power for the PC37X... however, if you ever want to upgrade to discrete DACs or Amps, the G6 can send a line-level analog signal or a digital Optical signal out to let you upgrade the quality. Plus, it’s cheaper! I’d recommend getting the G6 and saving up for a sweet amp down the road. Also, you never know when the headset mic might come in handy. I bought and enjoyed a Blue Snowball (works great plugged into a PS4 with USB!), but when doing voiceovers for videos (or when my wife records audiobooks), I found that the boom arm does a great job of keeping the mic to mouth distance consistent between takes and not sound too different if I need to splice two recordings together. I heard and helped measure a Razer Kraken recently... its not bad, but by comparison the PC37X is really good. You will immediately be able to tell a difference in a blind test ;)

Sure, just plug it into some USB soundcard/DAC and you’re good to go. The PC373D is just this headset with a soundcard in the cable, which I believe you might be able to buy separately from Sennheiser if you really want (but I prefer the Sennheiser GSX 1000, gives you more controls and sounds better).

Is the pad on the headband replaceable? I have the GSP-300 headset and the top band on it is starting to wear with no replacement parts in sight.

Sure! If you can’t find the part separately for sale, create a support ticket with our customer support (for the PC37X or your GSP 300) and we’ll help you out and give you some options: http://www.sennheiser.com/contact-center

I think so, I chose fairly flat profile glasses but the earpads flex around the “stems” of glasses pretty well.

WARNING!!! On the massdrop details page for this product it says that the mic is noise-canceling, because I didn't know how to turn that feature on, I decided to contact Sennheiser, and they've informed me that this headset PC37X does NOT have any noise-canceling features and that I should request a recall on my device immediately and as loudly as possible. Don't get me wrong, the headset sounds really good, and you can wear them for as long as you want, because they are that comfortable, but the mic will pick up EVERY sound around you that it can, and you have to position it away from your mouth, kinda in front of your eye so that your breathing doesn't get picked up by the mic... The build quality is also amazing, really a good product, but I still feel a bit cheated, specially because I've probably spent a good amount of hours researching on how to turn on the noise-canceling feature, and how does it even work when the headset doesn't get any additional power... PC37X are good, but they DO NOT have NOISE-CANCELING ability/feature! Image added to show where the error is.

Hey LoveMortuus, You are not a waste of time! :D We realize we didn’t have to stick out our necks here, but full disclosure: we also refer to our headset microphones as “noise cancelling” on our own website for many of our headsets, from the PC373D to the GSP 600. The cartioid pattern mics “passively” cancel noise to a certain extent (especially so from certain directions), just like closed headphones can block noise up to a certain volume. You are correct, the headset doesn’t perform any processing. You can use the PXC37X in conjunction with a soundcard or post-production software (like Apple’s or Adobe’s video and audio editing software) to digitally silence a mic when the audible dB is below a certain threshold, or use a noise filtering algorithm, and fortunately there will be generally less filtering to have to do (and therefore a less robotic sounding voice) due to the passive noise rejection design of the headset. Unfortunately, no solution is perfect yet, but we try our best and try to give you options, while keeping the PC37X at an easily accessible price. Thank you again for your passionate defense of us and gamers looking at our headset, and your understanding that the pursuit of the “ideal” is still ongoing.

“Noise Isolating Microphone” would probably be the best term, but hey, language translation is an imperfect art.

These do not have a digital “sidetone” or mic monitoring function. The PXC37X is all analog! However, as @LarsMS mentioned, these are open-backed headphones which prevent the “occlusion” effect of closed-back headphones (so your own voice doesn’t sound like you’re talking underwater). Also, if you use a sound card or DSP like the Sennheiser GSX 1000 (which was designed for the GAME series and this headset!), you can turn on a sidetone feature :)

You need an adapter as there is two jacks, one for the headset and one for the microphone. They have the adapter linked above under *2, at the bottom of the stickied. Hope this helps.
