Never had a more comfortable set of headphones
Can you even imagine wearing headphones for 6+ hours without the slightest hint of discomfort? I couldn't until I found this pair. They're kind of a miracle.

Would recommend to a friend.

This review is coming from the perspective of someone who has owned many pairs of consumer and audiophile headphones. I have 3 pairs of Sennheiser headphones aside from this pair. These are amazing for the price. If these didn't have the microphone, I would put these on par with some of Sennheisers $250+ headphones. The sound quality is amazing and everything is super well balanced. If you have a sound card in your rig, these perform even better. Surround sound is super good too. Mic quality is on par with a Blue Yeti mic. Its a blessing and curse. Do not keep this close to your mouth or everyone can hear you breathe or swallow. The mic is sensitive and does not need to be close to you. The boom mic flips up to mute and there is a wheel on the right earcup that allows you to control the volume on the headset. Very handy. Build quality is superb. As always, this headphone can be hand dissembled and cleaned. Even though the head band is like a plastic, it is very strong and never once have I not had faith in it. The ear and head pads are really awesome as well. Easy to clean and large enough to give ample coverage. The cord is braided and interchangeable. It is about 6 feet long so no worries on length. It plugs in on the left ear cup and it isn't loose. I highly recommend these headphones. For those that are looking for some low key high quality headphones, these are it!

How do these compare to HyperX Clouds?
More comfortable, for one. They're much lighter and don't hurt your ears after a long stretch using them. They also connect via 2 3.5mm connectors, not USB. These are open-back, so don't provide any noise isolation or blocking, which the HyperX Clouds have a bit of passively. I switched to these from HyperX Clouds and have been very pleased.
Why are these good for gaming?
3 things make this a great gaming headset. 1) Open-back. This gives you a much more natural sound in comparison to most closed. The reason most are closed-back are for noise disturbances. Open will leak sound both in and out while closed does not. What this also means though is that the sounds you hear bounce around inside your earcups, making the sounds overall sound much more muffled when compared to open. It's one of those things you have to compare yourself to tell. But once you've tried open, it's like night and day. 2) Has to do with the open design too but: Sound Stage. Wide sound stage is what you're looking for in most competitive gaming scenarios among other things. Imagine an orchestra stage and imagine one that can only fit 5 people in row. You have your eyes closed and are told to point at the direction you hear one of the violinists playing. A wider sound stage is like that but with a stage big enough to fit say 20 people. How far out the sound comes from and where it's coming becomes a lot clearer. 3) Ultimately what makes a gaming "headset" is the attached mic. Of course a standalone is much better overall but for mics that are just slapped on headsets, this one is really good. Not the best of course and it may sound worse in comparison videos as the creator probably records with a better mic. But as far as gaming mics go, they're really good.

I find open back with a headset makes no sense. Your headphone noise just bleeds right into the mic and annoys everyone. Completely pointless.

Thats a whole separate issue. Your mic should never be pointing towards your ears. If its loud enough to be picked up either your mic settings need tweaking or you have your volume at an u healthy volume.
Sennheiser has a history of great audio, and this headset continues to live up to it. Its an affordable headset with an open back design for a more natural sound stage, with an attached boom mic that is better than pretty much any mic on a gaming headset you can find elsewhere.

Personally, I love a simple set up. I've had the standalone microphone set up, but I much prefer a headset with attached microphone. My struggle in the past was finding a headset that had both great sound quality and a great microphone. This headset has both. It has very clear audio on both ends. Additionally, you'd be hard pressed to find a better option at this price point.
Can you replace the ear pads?

Yes. Since they are simply recolored Sennheiser Game Ones, you can simply look for Game One ear pads. You can also replace the cable with ones for the Game One.

No, they are a traditional stereo headphone, however they have excellent audio quality and I have had no issue with positional audio when gaming using them.

Is it possible to purchase a replacement cable for these? Sennheiser support just says go talk to MassDrop.

It turns out that Massdrop does not vend a replacement cable for this, however their support recommended me one, specifically this one https://www.eposaudio.com/en/us/gaming/products/unp-pc-cable-gaming-cable-506506. HOWEVER, this is a compatible cable with Senheiser's GameOne headset, which you can easily find on Amazon for around 5 usd.
